Ride the lightning with Raiden in new Mortal Kombat Legacy episode

So far in the live-action re-imagining of the MORTAL KOMBAT videogames, we've seen some of the major combatants from the series like Jax, Stryker, Kano, Sonya Blade and Johnny Cage, and the last two weeks have brought us Baraka and fighting ladies Kitana and Mileena.

This week delivers our first look at the franchise's thunder god Raiden, whose arrival in our realm is embraced by the local loony bin, and not a hint of assistance from Christopher Lambert or James Remar.

The episode synopsis: The following episode represents director Kevin Tancharoen's "different take on the Mortal Kombat universe," combining the perfect amount of gritty realism mixed with a hint of mysticism... When Lord Raiden, God of Thunder and protector of Earth, finds himself in an earthly mental institution in the year 2011, his 'delusions' are treated with some rather primitive forms of therapy (involving an ECT machine and an ice pick). Nonetheless, Blue, his beautiful, fragile yet insane fellow inmate, is Raiden's only hope of escaping the mental hospital and making his way to the Mortal Kombat tournament to defend Earthrealm from Shao Khan.

Extra Tidbit: Clancy Brown voiced Raiden in the animated MORTAL KOMBAT series from the 1990s.
