Sub-Zero is a video game character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise and one of the original characters in the first Mortal Kombat game in 1992. A mainstay of the series, Sub-Zero is the only character who has appeared in every main Mortal Kombat game. The character is a formidable fighter possessing the innate ability to control ice in many forms. In his first return appearance in Mortal Kombat II, it was revealed that the original Sub-Zero had died during the events of the first game and was replaced by his younger brother. In subsequent games, the younger brother remained as Sub-Zero, while the elder brother became Noob Saibot. The most defining trait of the character is his fierce rivalry with his archnemesis Scorpion.
Happy Veterans Day! This week I’ve had my 14-year anniversary as an Oregon resident, my 11-year anniversary as lead web developer/designer at Oregon State University, and my five-year anniversary (three years married) with my wife Heidi. These major life events all happened within three days of each other (November 8-11) in different years.
