Lewis Tan is Cole Young, a mixed marital arts fighter with a golly-gee-whiz family, who encounters a man named Jax (Mehcad Brooks) who is a recruiter for a heroic group of ninja fighters named Shirai Ryu, born with a dragon tattoo … which Cole possesses. They are challenged by the Lin Kuel assassins of The Outworld – introduced by a Mr. Freeze type called Sub Zero – looking for another “mortal kombat” tournament, to defeat Shirai Ryu and the Earthstream (the version of our world).

Male version of a “bimbo”) energy.
