    BASICS:

    Q: What is a fatality?
    A: Well, for those of you who haven't played Mortal Kombat before/are not too
       familiar with the series, a fatality is a finishing move that is performed 
       after a player wins the final round of a match.  The winner is prompted 
       to "FINISH HIM/HER" then is given about 5 seconds to input a series of 
       button presses which will result in a short cinematic of sorts in which the
       losing character is brutally destroyed.  This is the first mainstream 
       Mortal Kombat game to feature much more tame fatalities i.e. no 
       dismemberment/very little blood.  Mortal Kombat characters
       and DC Villains have fatalities.
    
    Q: What is a Heroic Brutality?
    A: A Heroic Brutality is essentially an extremely tame fatality, but it is not
       fatal, hence "Brutality" DC didn't want its heroes killing, so they decided
       that their finishing moves would be even more tame than the tame fatalities
       and that they would make it so painfully obvious that the defeated character
       was still alive.  (The defeated character squirms exaggeratedly).

    (Far): Just get as far as you can, outside of sweep range works, but the other

    Bio: Emperor Shao Kahn's lust for power is matched only by his ruthlessness.
         For ages he conquered other realms and merged them with Outworld.

         Earthrealm. But Liu Kang defeated Outworld's champion, Shang Tsung, dashing

         Gods' warnings and mounted an invasion. Defeated once again by Raiden and 
         his allies, he was seemingly ripped apart by his own portal. But the 
         realms are never truly safe from the evil that is Shao Kahn...
    
    Shao Kahn has no fatalities.

    DC UNIVERSE CHARACTERS: DC Universe Characters have either Fatalities or Heroic
    Brutalities depending on the character's alignment.  Heroes do not kill, and
    therefore have Heroic Brutalities, they are similar to fatalities, but they do
    not result in the death of the opponent.  DC Universe villains have fatalities.
