Emperor Shao Kahn's lust for power is matched only by his ruthlessness.
For ages he conquered other realms and merged them with Outworld.Eventually
he turned his attention to Earthrealm. To stave off invasion, Raiden
convinced the Elder Gods to enforce the rules of the Mortal Kombat
Tournament. Only if Shao Kahn were to win the tournament could he take
Earthrealm. But Liu Kang defeated Outworld's champion, Shang Tsung, dashing
any chance of Shao Kahn's victory. Enraged, Shao Kahn disregarded the Elder
Gods' warnings and mounted an invasion. Defeated once again by Raiden and
his allies, he was seemingly ripped apart by his own portal. But the realms
are never truly safe from the evil that is Shao Kahn.

Defeated, Shao Kahn was imprisoned in the Phantom Zone, used for holding
dangerous Kryptonian villains because of its ability to render them
powerless. Possibly due to the magical nature of his strength, however, the
Phantom Zone had the opposite effect on Shao Kahn: Instead of neutralising
him, it revitalised the emperor, allowing him to break free. With him are
untold numbers of criminals, released from millennia of imprisonment.
Grateful, they have sworn allegiance to Shao Kahn and now follow him on his
quest to konquer the universes.
