Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon thinks the franchise deserves its own and what if …? Series

Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon has revealed he’s very much on board with the long-running video game franchise getting his own What if…? style adaptation. Even if What if…? is a series entirely focused on the Marvel Universe, Boon seems to believe that the same sort of hypothetical situations could work well with Mortal Kombat used as the backdrop.

Boon publicized the idea to the masses earlier this week on social media when a fan (@ cass_cage_45) suggested the idea to him. Boon got wind of the hypothetical series and thought it would be a great way to look at the various timelines in the Mortal Kombat universe. “Great idea,” Boon said simply, sharing a picture of Mortal Kombat and What if…? logos.

As to some of the ideas that a What if…? The Mortal Kombat series could use, the fan who pitched this whole idea had a lot of thoughts. One of these ideas suggested an alternate future where Kung Lao would be the Chosen One rather than Liu Kang. Another could show what would happen if Shang Tsung won the 10th Mortal Kombat tournament, while another would examine what would happen if Sonya Blade was an actress and Johnny Cage was a Special Forces agent instead. All of these ideas seem to be great on paper, but unfortunately there’s a good chance we’ll never see something like this come to fruition. Still, it’s fun to dream and think about what might be.

So what do you think of the idea of ​​a What if…? series centered on Mortal Kombat? And what other video game franchises do you think would work well in this format? Let me know either in the comments or on Twitter at @ Mooreman12.
