Ed Boon is a prominent video game designer and programmer, best known as one of the co-creators of the highly successful "Mortal Kombat" series. Born in Chicago, Illinois, Boon began his career at Midway Games in the late 1980s.

Boon, along with his collaborator John Tobias, created "Mortal Kombat," which debuted in arcades in 1992.
