As you might remember, the Mortal Kombat XL Comic written by Shawn Kittelsen, who also wrote the in-game story modes for Injustice 2, Mortal Kombat 11 and it's Aftermath story expansion, was ended with a lot of cliffhangers and unanswered questions. It turns out that the MKX Comics was planned to have a sequel to it, basically a season 2, which was unfortunately cancelled, and that season 2 was supposed to reveal the answers for those questions, some of which are teased in some places in MK11 such as Sheeva's intros.

Now thanks for the YouTube channel The History Behind the Warrior, Kittelsen directly reveals to us the plot that he planned all the way back then for the MKX Comic season 2. It should be noted however that what Kittelsen reveals is not an official canon but only apocryphal as he never even wrote it down in it's entirety. As a matter of fact, Kittelsen also reveals that he never actually worked for NetherRealm Studios and WB Games under contract but only as a freelancer, and now he is no longer working with them at the moment, and therefore he doesn't represent their opinions in any shape or form. So all of this can only be considered as a possible scenario of what could've been.

Here is the video from History Behind the Warrior featuring Kittelsen with the full story. Enjoy :)



Author's opinion: This really clears a lot of things regarding the MKX Comic. Even though the MKX Comic is only semi-canon, this story that Kittelsen planned clears a lot of things that could've gone extremely well with the actual game's story mode, and of course with MK11's intros. And he even planned to make a Season 3, it's such a shame that we couldn't have got it, but at the very least we got the clarification for what was planned and it's defiantly great to see it finally been revealed. Not to mention all of the callbacks and fan service that was presented in this apocryphal canon, as it is takes a lot of alternatives to events from Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, Mortal Kombat: Deception and Mortal Kombat: Armageddon Also, Kittelsen is 110% totally right about the personal head-canons for everyone, as everyone can have their own canon thanks to Kronika, and it's excellent to see him coming with the classifications regarding decisions for the story and characters.

So there you have it folks. The untold story of the MKX Comic has finally been revealed. Right from the man himself, Shawn Kittelsen.

Unfortunately we will never see it, just like Mortal Kombat Legacy Season 3.
