She began her military career by teaming up with Major Jackson Briggs (or Jax) in his mission to bring down the international criminal organization the Black Dragon. On one of these missions, she and a good partner of hers ran ito one of the organizations' members named Kano. During a fight with Kano, he killed Sonya's partner, this would make Kano Sonya's bitter enemy and she will not rest until he is brought to justice by any means necessary. Sonya soon becomes a leader of her own unit that will be dedicated to the apprehention of Kano.

[edit] Mortal Kombat

As Sonya and her unit was tracking down Kano in Southeast Asia, they come across a mysterious force that subdued both, Kano and Sonya along with her unit and was taken to a mysterious island where they met with Shang Tsung the grandmaster of a deadly martial arts tournament known as Mortal Kombat. Shang Tsung told Sonya that he would promise to release Sonya's unit if she competes and wins his turnament, with no other option Sonya competes in Mortal Kombat. Unfortunately for Sonya and despite her performance in the tournament Shang Tsung had eliminated her unit. But as Shang Tsung was fighting Shaolin Monk Liu Kang Sonya along with Johnny Cage and even Kano fought the now disgraced Goro, the trio defeated the Shokan who mysteriously disappeared, as the island began to shake violently and destroying the environment around it the god of thunder Raiden tried to help the warriors escape, though Liu Kang, Johnny Cage and others managed to escape, Sonya along with her rival Kano were captured by a small Tarkatan horde and were taken to Outworld. Sonya would remain a captive along with Kano in Outworld for several months. Meanwhile, the special forces had agreed to refer Sonya to be dead. But her boss Jax refuses to believe this as she was not discovered to be dead and sent out to find her.

[edit] Mortal Kombat 2

In the months following the tournament Sonya and Kano were held captive by Shang Tsung and his master: The Emperor of Outworld Shao Kahn. During her captivity, she was able to send a distress signal to Jax, allowing him to realize that she is still alive. Jax along with Liu kang, Johnny Cage, Raiden and Kung Lao ventured to Outworld to face Shao Kahn's forces, she witnesses Jax's fighting skills as he faced numerous opponents. As Liu Kang and others faced Kahn himself Jax freed both Sonya and Kano (who was then arrested) but as they reached to the portal back to Earthrealm Kano breaks free and escapes from Sonya and Jax. But they will meet not only Kano again but Kahn as he will break the sacred rules of Mortal Kombat and invade Earthrealm.

[edit] Mortal Kombat 3

As Sonya and Jax reported back to their base in the United States they had writen a report about their ordeal in Outworld. Much to their dismay the U.S. Army high command did not find their information credible and was dismissed. Sonya went on to prepair for a possible invasion from Outworld as Jax went to participate in a top secret muscle teramulation program by the U.S. Military. Inevitably, Shao Kahn invades Earthrealm and uses powerful magic to drain the very souls of the inhabitants of Earthrealm, as Jax and Sonya eventually join with Liu Kang and others to fight against Kahn's invading army which entered Earthrealm in the western U.S., as they beat back Kahn's army in the west the Earthrealm warriors went back to the east to fight against Kahn himself, and as Liu Kang reached Kahn and fought him once again Sonya faced off with Kano, though Kano would have Sonya pinned down but she would eventually gained the upper hand and threw him off of a high rise building. As Liu kang once again defeats Shao Kahn and prevented the complete merging of Earthrealm with Outworld both Sonya and Jax pleaded their case with the U.S. military high command and was granted permission to begin their own special program which they would call "The Outerworld Investigation Agency". In the months following Kahn's invasion scientists around the U.S. have conducted studies and developed ways to open portals through technology rather than magic or other supernatural means.

[edit] Mortal Kombat 4

Sonya had spent the past several months apprehending the last of the Black Dragon organization as that organization was dissolving after the apparent death of Kano. The last known member Jarek was being persued by Sonya and eventually ventured to Edenia, but as they were to fight each other they both receive word from Raiden that he needs their help to fight against a fallen Elder God named Shinnok, Jarek agrees to join the Earthrealm warriors to help defend his realm from this mad god. As Shinnok was defeated by Liu Kang Sonya told Jarek that he was going to be brough to justice, but Jarek was resiliant and said that he was not going to give himself up so easily as Jarek charges toward Sonya he suddenly falls off of a cliff and to his death. Sonya then radios Jax and tells him that she will report back to their secret base.

[edit] Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance

Sonya, Jax and the rest of their agency had scene very little action following Shinnok's defeat. But several years later the scorcerer Quan Cchi who was responsible for releasing Shinnok from his banishment in the Netherealm teamed up with Shang Tsung and killed Shao Kahn and eventually Liu Kang. They receive word from Raiden that he has relinquish his status as Elder God to protect Earthrealm from the Deadly Alliance, during their fight they have to find their fellow agents who were Kenshi and Cyrax, as they find them they try to fight against the alliance unfortunately they were killed by the alliance themselves.

[edit] Mortal Kombat: Deception

As the Deadly Alliance was about to self destruct shortly after their victory over the Earthrealm warriors, the dragon king named Onaga appeared and the Deadly Alliance tried to eliminate him, Raiden eventaually joined them to try to eliminate the king then in a last ditch effort Raiden used all of his power to sacrifice himself to hopefully kill Onaga. But this killed off himself the Deadly Alliance and Onaga's invincible army. Eventually Onaga would find Quan Chi's sacred amulet and used its power to resurrect the Earthrealm warriors and make them do his bidding. Then, Raiden re-animated the body of Liu Kang which went on a killing rampage but the soul of Liu Kang remained in Outworld and recrutted a warrior named Ermac to help free the warriors from Onaga's bidding. Together, Liu Kang and Ermac freed the Earthrealm warriors from Onaga's magic (incluing Sonya). Sonya reported back to her secret base along with Jax.

[edit] Mortal Kombat: Armageddon

For some time, Sonya and her brand new unit were tracking down a cybernetic clan known as the Tekunin led by the former Lin Kuei cyborg assassin named Sektor, as the Tekunin was about to attack a place in Earthrealm. Unbeknownst to Sonya that a half human-god from Edenia named Taven was on the Tekunin's airship. As the Tekunin's airship was attacked and eventually destroyed she placed a tracking device on Taven which allowed her to chase Taven to the artic as she eventually caught up with him. After killing a monster in the artic she encounters Taven and asks him about the Tekunin's attack Taven said that he was not responsible for the attack and then Sonya asks him about his purpose but Taven could not answer her as it is supposed to be a secret, this angers Sonya and challenges Taven but would lose to him. Sonya then leaves and goes on to join the rest of the Earthrealm warriors to fight against evil in Armageddon. But it would be Taven that would defeat Blaze and receive the power of the Elder Gods.

Before she was able to leave she encounters Catwoman and challenges her as she intruded into the base, she defeats Catwoman easily and heads over to the Wu-Shi Acadamy, as she arrived there she develops a bad feeling from th uneasy desertedness of the acadamy, then Jax contacts her and asks her about Catwoman she then tells Jax about the disappearence of Liu Kang and tells him to head to the Wu-Shi Acadamy she was then encountered by Baraka and fights him. After she defeats Baraka she heads to Raiden's Sky Temple as she suspects that Shao Kahn may be returning, as she arrives at Raiden's Sky Temple she calls to Raiden for help but who appears before her was Captain Marvel who was heavily influenced by a massive energy known as "Kombat Rage" and fights Sonya because of it, despite Captain Marvel's superior stength and Kombat Rage Sonya defeats the DC hero, as she was to interrogate Captain Marvel another DC hero named Green Lantern comes to Captain Marvel's aid, as Captain Marvel warns Green Lantern about the Kombat Rage Sonya comes towards Green Lantern and fights him and defeats him, just as she was about to eliminate Green Lantern Captain Marvel saves him and they head back to the U.N.
