    Jax arms are always a different story. Originally he never lost his arms. He just decided to wear them in the 2nd MK movie and took them off when fighting Gatario ( believe thats his name, half horse half human guy). And then in the recent stories Jax lost his Arms in war and not by any MK characters.

    You need the fatalities to have alot of importance to them. Now days you just press pause and look up the button pattern. But back in the day you would spend hours and hours testing out different combinations. It was the ultimate triumph to discover a fatality.

    "Mortal Kombat" was rated-PG-13 and it was tamer than an MCU movie. "Coming to America" was rated-R for things like nudity and profanity. Why was your mom mad?
