The world got their first look at Johnny Cage in Mortal Kombat 11 earlier today but there's one aspect of his reveal that we're not quite over and that's his amazing fatality! Say what you will about Cage, but his performance is worth that award that he uses to deal some massive damage:
The reactions to his character's triumphant return were priceless. Some disbelieving, some scratching their heads, while others were just happy to be here:
There's something..... different..... about Johnny Cage here. He either got plastic surgery or this is likely a younger version of the character, because I don't remember him being this loose and fun-loving in MKX. //t.co/hR8BiEOSEm pic.twitter.com/Xnl8tAhr1L— Ozzie Mejia (@Ozz_Mejia) February 27, 2019
This is EASILY the coolest iteration of Johnny Cage in the history of MK. I don't even like the character and I got hype watching his reveal!
Makes me excited to see what they'll do with the characters I actually want in: Frost, Ermac, Nightwolf, Noob Saibot, and/or Havik!— Ryan D (@BigD_FGC) February 27, 2019

There is not one single disappointed Johnny Cage fan out there.
My second favorite fatality in MK11 so far

Listen. Why is MK11 so aesthetically displeasing. Almost every character design sends a shiver through me. Johnny Cage looks like the unholy spawn of Gary Sinse, Matthew Broderick, and Steven Seagal. What is with that vest. Casting Ronda Rousey clearly put a curse upon this game. pic.twitter.com/txuZz0o9NL— Jacob Costley (@Bookman2point30) February 27, 2019
YO THAT JOHNNY CAGE REVEAL THO!!! pic.twitter.com/noSzH2wSi6— PerfectLegend 🐝 (@PerfectLegend) February 27, 2019
With a fatality that pays tribute to his Hollywood persona with a hilarious spin, his final moveset is beyond perfect. Though personally, I think he looks more like Jack Barrowman in some shots, but maybe that's just me.
Thoughts on Cage's arrival? Who else do you hope to see make their triumphant return? Sound off in the comment section below, or hit me up over on Twitter @DirtyEffinHippy.
