Hard to gauge though because Sindel was powered up by Shang Tsung, but she never demonstrated anything like that huge explosion Juri caused at the park. Would have been great if netherrealm studios showed what her scream could do at full power. She did take on all of those earth realm champions by her lonesome so it is not like they made her look weak.
Juri on the other hand didn't take on such a number of combatants, but she did effortlessly wipe the floor with any and all opposition she faced. However she did solo the Bison dolls, so it is not far fetched to think she can't do anything like what Sindel did. She was also a grand taekwondo champion since she was 15.
I agree it can go either way, but Juri has shown she has more destructive power than Sindel.
Now that is going by portayals...if we go by feats Juri destroys Sindel. She oneshot blitzed everyone once she got serious. Kicked missiles with her feet, showed TK shielding/barriers that can most likely withstand Sindel's screams and well was just plain beast.
Sindel better go try hard right from the start and finish it before Juri gets pissed.
Ah, I see. In that case, Juri most likely takes it. I can see Sindel getting overly cocky too like she did when it came to Nightwolf, so that could give Juri the edge she needs..

Although its kinda funny how Tsung's soul made her unstopable while Shang himself was getting his ass kicked by everyone and their grandmother.
Well every bad guy lost to everyone and their grandmother in MK9 when you put it that way (Noob Saibot, Sektor, Goro, etc). Shang at least has the feats for doing stuff like creating Mileena, helping heal Kabal with his magic, winning several MK tournaments until losing to the original Kung Lao several hundred years ago, etc., and when he was first revitalized in the new game, he dodged & countered some of Raiden's attacks before disappearing as the tarkatans appeared in swarms and overwhelmed Jax, from Tsung opening the portal in which they came.
With the souls he had consumed over the years being transferred to Sindel by Kahn, it made complete sense as to why she became as powerful as she did. Not because of PIS or whatever it is people who don't like what Sindel did called it.
And Sindel was already kinda powerful enough by herself before that even happened (at least on the level of most of the other minions of Kahn, I believe). Shang's souls being added to her own just made the already powerful Edenian queen an uber character for the most part. Still, Juri ain't to be underestimated either.
