Scorpion, Impressionist

I'm glad to see Critical Miss getting back to well-delivered game jokes. It was a neat storyline, but it went on far too long (and still isn't over yet, as far as I can tell). With Name Game gone, you guys have to step back into your old shoes to fill the void, and leave the soap-opera for the B-plots.

And no, I don't have any ice-related jokes. I guess when it was time to hand out puns, I was left out in the cold.

The jokes in this thread are unBEARable!!

>_>

<_<

...

am I doing this wrong?

Oh, those two. Even Sub-Zero won't give Scorpion the cold shoulder after that burn. I expect them to

FIGHT!

Scorpion is very brave to make that joke in front of someone who might rip him a new one. I am of course talking about Erin.

Kungfu_Teddybear:
Wow, that's just cold.

EDIT: Damn ninjas.

LITERALLY!

BAHAHAHAHAHA.

...because...they are both ninjas.

All the Mortal Kombat fans laugh and all the rest just scratch their heads.

I laughed, but for probably unrelated reasons.

See, MK9 goes all-out in terms of storytelling. It's basically Saturday-morning cartoon quality, but compared to the storylines packed by the previous MKs, it's the freaking Odyssey. The same goes for character development.

And, well, that comic makes Scorpion out to be something OTHER than consumed by rage, which is a nice change. The Scorpion section of MK9's story mode got on my nerves.

Scorpion: "RRRAAAAGGGH, YOU KILLED MY FAMILY, AAARRGH!"
Raiden: "Don't kill Bi Han, I can put in a good word for you with Chtulhu if you let him live. Uh, I mean, the Elder Gods."
Scopion: "RAAAAGH- Oh, okay."

Quan Chi: "Kill him!"
Scorpion: "Not gonna!" *insert pout*
Quan Chi: "Fine, I'll just show you stuff you should already know and that your agreement with Raiden would suggest you're capable of overcoming, but you're going to get all Emo and Hardcore on us because that's the only thing the lazy screenwriters can think of, when you're concerned."
Scorpion: "No! NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! RAAWR-ARGH-BLARG!" *Skeleton Face Mode, activate*
Bi Han: "Derp."

Scorpion: *moar screams and fiyah*
Raiden: *facepalm*
Shang Tsung: *trollface.jpg*

Pure Komedy Gold.

You stay frosty, Scorpion.

Biodeamon:
wai how does she have bruises? wasn't the guy just a figment of her imagination? if so how'd she get in the bar fight?

Short answer: Fight Club, Long Answer: She likely didn't try to fight Link rather someone else while trusting Link would play the Noble Knight and come to her rescue if it got to out of hand. the better question is how she got out of it and to the empty building.

That was some good laughing there, it was. 'Tis a good pun you made there. Made me laugh fairly hard. That look on Sub-Zero's face at the end does it for me. XD

Yeah... that was my intention. That edit was totally supposed to be another pun, because I'm that funny and clever...

That is grade A. Me and a few friends JUST finished playing mortal kombat and other fighters all night XD so for me it was topical too.

Its funny because the brother is dead...

I don't think this is the icest comic, I don't get it

canadamus_prime:
Hahahahahahahahaha

Who knew Scorpion had a sense of humor?

He didn't? I got the impression from those ads that his jokes were downright...deadly.

Sub: "Oh, you can go straight to h--"
Scorpion: "Been there, done that"

Well, at least it's nice to get over here some nice cold puns.

It'll be a COLD day in hell before Sub-Zero let's that one slide.

I giggled like a 30 year old man watching my little pony when I read your comment plus the shifty eyes.

Which would be less weird if I wasn't literally at work right now >_>.

Why do I recognize myself in that sentence?

Also, I'm so glad to see this strip back to being about videogame humour.

That's something I would do!

Biodeamon:

She started the bar fight with some other random people, they probs just (rightly so) thought she was nuts and battered her when she started on them. I'd say at this point not only does she hallucinate, she's got split personality disorder too, given she managed to get to "Links" house and imagined being hung out of the window.

This was a nICE little joke in the strip. Too bad there have been so many BONEHEADed commenters running with the obvious jokes.

side note: Keanu Reeves should be driving that bus to complete the obvious jokes triumvirate.

Laugh all you want Scorpion, I still own your ass as Sub-Zero.

SO MUCH GREATNESS.

I am glad I know enough about MK to get this joke.

Gee, that was sure cold of Scorpion, but I've never seen such a chilling resemblance to anything in my life.

Best of the 3:
Chill out guys, we don't want any puns here.

No need to be so icy about some puns.

Sorry, I always give a cool reception. Either way, it's ice to meet you.

Wait a second, where have I heard these before?

way to break the ice..

"Yeah that's right. He's DEAD. Whatcha gonna do huh?"

Scorpion's a real firestarter.
