I think we’ve really own scratched the surface of Original Web Series that are floating around on the web. We’ve talked about a couple, such as the new Mortal Kombat: Legacy series, and the funny yet frightening Psycho Ex-Girlfriend. So now I think it’s time to bring you another series that I have become a huge fan of. It’s called Avengers Assemble. It takes a look into the more humorous, and often more human side of the Avengers.
The series starts off with an average Avengers meeting. But as the season progresses you get to see a cast full of hilarious versions of our favorite characters in a sometimes raunchy, often times hilarious, and most times refreshing parody of the Avengers; tasked by Human Resources and dealing with budget cut. I could keep rambling but I think I’ll just show you the first episode:
The moment most MK fans have been waiting for has arrived. Throughout this series I have mostly been enjoying the revised look at some of my favorite MK characters. But I’ve been waiting patiently for two of my faves to meet in an epic battle.
So here it is, in 2 parts so you get double the pleasure. Finally we get to see Scorpion & Sub-Zero, ninja’s of the highest order who have been kicking ass in every single MK game ever made, the only other character to accomplish this feat being Raiden.
I hope everyone had a chance to check out the first 4 episodes and if you didn’t you can check them out here. Episode 5 has been released, and it features a continuation of the Kitana and Mileena story:
If you didn’t see the awesome short Mortal Kombat: Rebirth then I suggest you go and check that out here first. It was directed by Kevin Tacharoen, and was his attempt to show the movie studios just what he could do with the MK franchise. And it was amazing. It was a realistic look at the world of Mortal Kombat with some stars thrown in for good measure. Michael Jai White played Jackson Briggs (Jax) and Jeri Ryan played Sonya Blade. Well, it definitely got noticed, with over 10 million views in one month, and it left most fans of the franchise wondering where the series was going to go next.
Then Mortal Kombat: Legacy was announced. A 10 part web series from the makers of Rebirth featuring the same cast plus lots more. So naturally fans rejoiced. So far there have been 4 episodes released, so I’ll post them here for your viewing pleasure, and as each one comes out we’ll keep you up to date.
Most are around 10 minutes long, and feature a look at the beginning of most of our favorite characters, with an expanded look at the huge universe of Mortal Kombat.
