Johnny Cage's And Cassie Cage's "Rage Mode"

While I personally dislike (not hate) Johnny Cage and my dislike for Cassie Cage stems from her paternity (which I think Sonya was better as a character than her daughter).  Now moving on, we do have the "Rage Mode" of Johnny Cage and Cassie Cage which happened in Mortal Kombat X's rather not so impressive story mode.  Yeah I know, I'm a Liu Kang fanboy!

In Mortal Kombat X, Johnny Cage knew of his heritage that he was a descendant of some Mediterranean cult that bred warriors for the gods.  IMO, I think Johnny Cage is a reincarnation of some Mediterranean warrior.  Maybe he may have Indian ancestry or he was an Indian warrior in his past life, what if he was really King Rama in his past life?  I even want to assume he might be the reincarnation of some Mediterranean warrior and maybe he wasn't a white man in his past life?  Now concerning Johnny Cage's powering up and defeating Shinnok, I would consider it a temporary power-up boost at best.  He got powered up in rage when he saw Sonya Blade (his girlfriend and later, they got married but had a falling away) in danger.  This caused the rage to emit some kind of green energy from his body giving him temporary strength against a fallen Elder God.  I just thought the scenario is like that Johnny Cage gets enlightenment and beats Shinnok up.

Now I do think that Cassie isn't as impressive as her mother Sonya, maybe because she isn't fully hard-boiled yet or that she didn't endure as much hardship (yet) as either which parent.  She is unaware of that temporary power-up that's in her until her father was in danger.  Normally, she doesn't really have that power all the time and that it was sort of a last minute boost that had her survive a rather dangerous ordeal.  I mean, I always thought Liu Kang or Johnny Cage defeating Shinnok was unbelievable and I think the same goes to her.  fShe gets greened up because her father was in danger... which might have transferred her father's power up to her for the moment when she was almost killed by Shinnok who was now in his purest malevolence.  It might also be because of her love for her father that also triggered that similar power that her father had.  I know I don't like her as much as I don't like her father but I guess it does make some sense that she beats Shinnok after she gets temporarily "raged up".

Yeah I know the Story Mode is weak for me considering that I wish Raiden powered them both up or maybe the Elder Gods do so before this storyline can be more acceptable to me.
