Revenge is a dish best served sassy.

There can only be one original on the Mortal Kombat women's roster.

When Mortal Kombat was first released, it had a very small fighting roster. You could only choose from a list of 7 characters. Noticeably, only 1 of those 7 was female.

That was Sonya Blade. The OG. The special forces GI Jane obsessed with bringing Kano to justice.

Her look has evolved drastically since the first Mortal Kombat hit arcades. Initially, she looked ready for a calisthenics class.

But now, she’s clearly a military leader. Cosplayers have all sorts of options when it comes to portraying Sonya Blade.
