 Mortal Kombat
Johnny Cage has starred in many martial arts movies in his acting career. He is also known to perform energy-based moves such as his Green Flame and his (soon to be pateneted) Shadow Kick. But because most of his movies did not do well in the American box office. He became quite egotisical and anxious to test his abilities on actual fighters. He accepts Shang Tsung's invitation to compete in his tournament. Hoping to restore his lost glory Cage becomes excited to compete. Before the tournament began, he encounters Liu Kang who tells him that there's a lot more at stake than personal glory. Cage fights well against fighters who faced him in the tournament, but it would be Liu Kang that would fight the tournament's champion Goro. But soon after Liu Kang defeats Goro, Cage and Sonya Blade fight against Goro. This time, Cage and Sonya defeats the Shokan just as the island was collapsing from the defeat of Shang Tsung by Liu Kang. As Cage returns to the United States, he decides to direct his own movies as the tournament gave him some enlightenment. He decides to make a movie after the events of the torunament which revived his acting career. But what Liu Kang said to Cage about more being at stake than personal glory will turn out to be true.

Johnny Cage would go on to restore his acting career in the months following the tournament. But as he was filming his latest movie, the set was attacked by a Tarkatan horde. Cage fends off the savage beings during the attack. But it became apparent to Cage that this attack is from the Emperor of Outworld, Shao Kahn. Cage meets up with Liu Kang along with Raiden, Jax and Kung Lao to venture to Outworld to compete in Kahn's own tournament in the forsaken realm. Cage again fights well against Kahn's fighters including Reptile. But as Liu Kang with Kung Lao, Raiden and eventually Kitana defeated Shao Kahn.
