Kabal teased at Mortal Kombat 11 reveal event but you might've missed it if you blinked

That's really fast...

Quite a lot of information was dumped on us during Mortal Kombat 11's reveal event. It seems that NetherRealm Studios is bringing back a number of fan favorite Mortal Kombat characters.

So far, Baraka, Skarlet, Sub-Zero, Liu Kang, Kung Lao and Sonya Blade have been revealed to be returning in Mortal Kombat 11. Newcomer Geras will function as a grapler of sorts. In the story prologue, another new character known as "Kronika" also made an appearance.

There was one more reveal that you might've missed if you happened to blink at the wrong moment. Specifically, a character sped across the screen with super speed.

Flash from the Injustice series comes across as unlikely despite the fact that Mortal Kombat fighters have guest starred in the Injustice before. Fatalities on super heroes probably wouldn't go over too well.

Upon closer inspection of the blurred character, the character boasting super speed looks like Kabal. Notably this character was a top tier in Mortal Kombat 9 but did not return for Mortal Kombat X outside of cinematic story elements.

We'll likely learn more about who we assume to be Kabal on January 30th during Mortal Kombat 11's first Kombat Kast.
