I have a pretty good idea of what Sub Zero and Scorpion can do but do you have any feats for the Three Storms? I don't even know what they are from.

Limited to movie versions I'd say the three Storms have a shot. Mostly because of Lightning.

They're from the movie Big Trouble In Little China, more important that this thread is you watching that movie. It's a classic little film by John Carpenter in another of the great pairings with Kurt Russel.

@avatarofdeath: Just as jrupert1 said, they are from Big Trouble in Little China. In the off chance that you are interested in watching the movie (which I highly recommend) I wont spoil too much. Magical in origin, they are the "lieutenants" of the main antagonist. Each have heightened speed, strength and durability, as well as the ability to levitate. Masters of martial arts, they also have powers unique to themselves.

From left to right.

Rain has the ability to manipulate the weather to a degree. As his name suggest, he can summon downpours.

Thunder generates a massive boom sound through his presence, and can conjure green portals.

Lighting, arguably the most powerful of the three, can manipulate electricity and lightning for various purposes, such as using a lighting bolt to travel down or up.

@warlordeternal: Well damn man based on that this sounds like a stomp in favor of the Three Storms. Scorpion & Sub-Zero don't have solid responses to those abilities. At least not the movie versions.

@avatarofdeath: It should also be noted that they are not without limitations and weaknesses. All of them are vulnerable to magic based attacks. Thunder is also very quick to anger and can be easily distracted.

@warlordeternal: So basically this could come down to whether or not we can prove Scorpion and/or Sub-Zero's abilities are magic based? It's been a while since I've watched Mortal Kombat but I don't think they have that fantastic of fighting ability unless we use nothing but scaling.

@avatarofdeath: It's a safe bet that its magic based as Subzero is regarded as a cryomancer and Scorpion is undead.
