    It is in the context of MK. Sonya sets people on fire by blowing a kiss, Liu Kang throws fireballs, Kabal runs around like the Flash. But Johnny Cage is special?

    They've tried to give more and more "plausible" explanations for stuff as time goes on via retcons. Sonya and Jax have apparently always used tech. The Shaolin have chi mastery. Sub-Zero is actually descended from an Outworld race. Kabal got exposed to Outworld magic. Johnny Cage has "The Green". Etc.

    It doesn't always logically work 100%. But, it's not just Cage that got some newfangled explanation that wasn't quite there before for why he has powers.
