How Stryker joined the Tourney
Stryker was introduced in Mortal Kombat 3 as a somewhat stout-looking Caucasian man sporting a very urban design with a white-blue shirt, combat boots, gunbelt, black police pants, and a backwards cap. However, his appearance changed in Armageddon into a more serious-looking and modernized policeman. Originally described as being a leader of the Special Riot Control division in the New York City Police Department, he employs modern weaponry such as explosives, firearms, tasers, and nightsticks in battle, making him a force that is not to be underestimated. He is seen as the first person to run towards the pyramid in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon.
Transfeered to SWAT, Stryker hears a radio report of a mysterious human-like alien appearing on Earth and wrecking towns for the whereabouts of "the son of Jor-El". Strykers finds it is former Krypton General Zod.

Have a Blast (Final Smash)
