Best character/Highest tier?

I'm pretty good at Mortal Kombat. Played online for the first time last night, and held my own. 7 wins, 6 losses.

But, I got beasted by several people who had 13 to 19-hit combos. Didn't even have time to move most of the time.

Which characters are the top tier? I'm familiar with juggling and was easily able to master every single combo in the game for Mortal Kombat Trilogy, and I've been good at abusing fighting game mechanics since the original Street Fighter.

From the people I have seen, Kabal, Scorpion and Ermac seem to be the most popular among the people who crushed me last night.

I like characters that have some kind of a stun move, like Scorpion or Sub-Zero, but I also like the ones with really long combo strings. What do you guys recommend?

Ermac is my main i mean he has telekenetic powers and has a ninja suit xD been my favorite since mk3. And his telekintic powers can chain easily. Even his X-Ray its 100% after the ground grab.
