A decorated member of the U.S. Special Forces and a formidable close-kombat warrior, Major Jackson Briggs' current mission is to bring down the notorious criminal organization known as the Black Dragon. With Lieutenant Sonya Blade, he has seized many of their weapons caches. But when a trusted informant, Kano, was revealed to be a high-ranking member of the Black Dragon, Jax made Kano's capture his priority. Kano has gotten the better of Jax thus far, leading the Special Forces into numerous deadly ambushes. Jax and Sonya finally cornered Kano on an uncharted island but were overpowered by the island's inhabitants. They have now been forced into a sadistic ritual of bloody kombat.
After the invasion was thwarted, many of Jaxís allies had seemingly disappeared, leaving him to clean up the mess on his own.
He searched for Shao Kahnís remaining forces utilizing a new cyber-scanner designed to remotely access worldwide databases. Navigating its virtual reality interface, Jax inadvertently accessed Kanoís brain through his optical laser implant.†Their minds linked,†Jax virtually battled Kano. Finally he captured and quarantined Kanoís consciousness within the Special Forces mainframe. A dangerous criminal had finally been neutralized.
