The contrast between the typography and the background weakens a lot on the right.

The text is too weak, almost invisible.

You could try giving it a white outline or a glow to make it stand out more.

I would also fix the blood, it looks too much like cut and paste even though it's not. Maybe color some of it like the MK2 fatality sign so it looks more like it's really bleeding.

I would also try using some different fonts, I’m not really feeling this one.

The text is the only thing that bothers me in this banner.

It is ok but it is just kind of plain. The blood needs to be replaced and like others said a better font.
Is this for a site?

Not very good. I'll admit it's a harsh comment.

The text doesn't fit the theme. The color scheme for a start clashes in places and the blood looks out of place. IMO pic 1 character to have in the banner or do many and do it greyscale (greyscale looks good if you know what your doing).

The background isn't all that good.

Sorry but I don't like it and I tried to be constructive.

hmmm, well, i like the wordage confused I dont know, somethings missing here, the fonts are not the best choice the look nothing like a mortal kombat theme, and the bloods in to many "perfect drops" need to mix it upa little.

If you want to make "cool" stuff go here:
PhotoShop 1 0 1. It's really helpful.

And if you're looking for good fonts:
Fonts/Text.

Enjoy. Credit goes to deadinholywood for the PhotoShop Tutorial link which I found on her site.

Ignore my other reply it didn't get edited.

It's simple but cool. It needs a little more work.
you can see yellow on the back of Scorpion's head.
The word "Victory" shouldn't be on top of Scorpion's face. The font for "Flawless Victory" is too simple, try drawing "Flawless Victory", scan it, color it in Photoshop, cut it and replace the current one with the one you make.

Well,
I like the text for one, but it definately should be brighter. That or more readable, Scorpion really makes that right side hard to read, as mentioned.
I feel it should have a background, preferably bright (somewhat anyway), banners are mostly for attracting attention.
As mentioned, it's just too simple, but nice going for a first smile.
