Johnny Cage

"I AM the special effects."

Johnny Cage is one of the biggest stars in Hollywood and he will not let you forget it. An accomplished actor and martial artist, he has starred in numerous films throughout his career and continues to rake in considerable box office profits. Yet, many believe his fighting ability is all special effects and no substance, something that irritates him to no end. He is determined to prove to the world that his martial arts are legitimate and that he deserves to be taken seriously in the competitive fighting circuits. His quest isn't helped by the fact that he is incredibly egotistical and self-centered, and tends to flaunt his wealth without a care in the world. But underneath his obnoxious attitude is a man with a strong moral center who may yet become something greater. Until then, you can find him partying hard, accosting attractive women and wooing the crowds, indulging in his own hype.

Style:Jeet Kune Do and Karate
Signature Move:Nut Punch -- PHYSICAL ENERGY
Signature Ability:ENHANCED_MOVES -- EXPERTISE

Background

Born Jonathan Carlton but raised to become Johnny Cage, this slick haired, sarcastic bastard is as skilled in the martial arts as he is famous for his Hollywood blockbusters and beyond impressive acting career. Known the world over for his incredible action filmography, Johnny Cage's career took a hit when people started to discredit and disbelieve that he was the real deal. They had started to believe that he was nothing more than a pretty boy actor with stuntmen, special effects and computers to make him look that damn good. Having spent the better part of his life training in martial arts all over the world, Johnny took some serious offense to this. So he searched high and low for an opportunity to prove himself to the world. He was going to prove that he was not just fluke of an actor. He was going to prove that he was, in fact, one seriously kick ass martial artist.

Welcome to Mortal Kombat.

Nobody really knows how Johnny Cage found out about the Mortal Kombat Tournament. Even Johnny doesn't remember, specifically, which of his connections gave him the head's up. Still, though, Johnny Cage didn't hesitate to enter the tournament. He knew that he would be able to best some of the world's greatest fighters and that would prove to the world that he was, indeed, the real deal instead of the reel deal. He would use the Mortal Kombat Tournament to breathe life back into the career that started to wane under the pressure from the public's belief that he was not a capable fighter. To his credit, though, that's exactly what the tournament did. Of course, it almost killed him too but that wasn't as important as becoming a household name once again.

With his career back on top and his martial arts expertise proven, Johnny Cage had forever embroiled himself in the constant battle between good and evil. Broadening his horizons, Johnny Cage has taken a more totalitarian view on his martial arts master and his success by branching out into the world of professional fighting. On top of even that, Johnny provides a wisecracking series of punches and kicks as one of Earthrealm's Defenders whenever those Outworld Bozos decide to show their ugly faces. mostly because he lives on Earth and it'd be a real shame if the Outworlders took over and destroyed the Earthrealm. It'd be one seriously bad career move.

All in all, Johnny Cage has lived an incredible life that's bound to get even more crazy since he's gone from playing hero to being one.
