Sindel’s retcon and ending (spoilers)

Okay WTF?

First, at least they didn’t just completely wipe away her old story like nothing happened. The retcon was explained in her ending.

Second, her ending. Sindel’s story used to have a lot more depth and it made for a better story, and it made sense why she was dead before. Now she’s just the same as the other big bads of MK, heartless, ruthless, just wants to be supreme ruler of all reality, she’s pretty much just Shao Khan or Shinnok now. They really just demolished her character.

Third, what I gathered from some of the intros, Quan Chi killed Sindel now? So umm how? Why? When?

Also, why would Sindel give a fuck about Mileena? Did they even know each other?

I will say that she looks amazing though. This is the best Sindel has ever looked. She looked awful in MK9.

I second that! Mortal Kombat 11 (or Woke Kombat 11) ruined MK to the ground. The sale numbers are also showing that (compared to MKX).

I don't think it's a retcon, since there are a few details that don't make any sense. Like why did Sindel have to die to prevent the merging of realms or why Shao Khan thought that she would do that. Instead, if this is a previous iteration of Sindel, a Sindel that was evil, & what Kronika actually did was have this alternate Sindel take place of the Good Sindel we are familiar with, that makes more sense than "Oh Quan Chi just mind controlled Sindel" The problematic part of that story element being, if he could mind control Sindel why didn't he just mind control anyone else? Why didn't he just control Shinnok because of the whole Amulet Buisness.

Kronika having an alternate Sindel inhabit the Good Sindel's body as part of her plan makes much more sense, & explains the ghostly apparition of her undead powers

Because Quan Chi only has full control over those he's risen from the dead with his necromancy (a group Sindel belonged to).

I will say though... your reason (that Kronika summoned a Sindel from a different history where she was evil) is better than the weak bullshit reason they gave on that kombat kast.

"Retirement my ass!"
