@The Dark Huntress: How can anyone really know? Writers portray the character really at any age see fitting the generation of comic reader. That is why Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman aren't portrayed as 70 years old or older. So it really depends on the generation, writer, and continuity of a comic book
The character is dazed, and then BOOM! Scorpion rips the head off of the enemy and also his/her heart, then places the heart in the heads position and places the head in the heart. I call it organ transplant.
And better yet, I will show you a video. This fatality I helped the Mortal Kombat team create. Ed Boon decided not to publish this though.
