As punishment for resisting Shao Kahn’s claim to the realm of Edenia, the souls of the vanquished were torn from their bodies and fused together to form the being now known as Ermac. Bent to Shao Kahn’s will, Ermac is his foremost enforcer. The essences of so many souls bound together give Ermac immense telekinetic power -- an advantage that will destroy Earthrealm’s resistance to Shao Kahn’s rule.
Ermac was eliminated in the first round of the first HTTT tournament, losing to Captain America.
Round 1: Ermac was eliminated by Karas.
