Faker
Evil Robot of Skeletor

Real Name: N/A


Faker is a member of Skeletor's Evil Warriors. Faker's goal is to fool people into thinking that he is He-Man and striking when they least expect it. Faker is a near perfect likeness of He-Man; the one imperfection is that his eyes glow. Faker has exactly the same strength and power as He-Man, resulting in the two fighting to a stand still.

History #1 (Filmation):

When Faker appears in a single episode of the MotU animated series by Filmation, the cartoon presents a radically different interpretation of him. Appearing in the early episode "The Shaping Staff," Faker appears as an exact physical replica of He-Man with the same skin tone and armor as the real He-Man, the only physical differences being glowing eyes and a hollow-sounding voice. He is presented as a magical creation rather than a robot, created by Skeletor out of thin air in a surprisingly easy manner, leading one to wonder why Skeletor did not use his magic to create a whole army of evil He-Men if such an act was this easy. His role in the episode is minor, appearing only in a five-minute sequence in which he is created to lure The Sorceress out of Castle Grayskull by pretending to be the real He-Man in pain from an injury. After a quick fight with the real He-Man, Faker charges at him and falls into the bottomless abyss of Grayskull, never to return for the rest of the series.

Fistory #2 (Late Vintage Mini-Comics):

Only one mini-comic, late from the original toylines run, features the character - "The Search for Keldor" - and the suggestion is that he is an evil robot built to duplicate He-Man's power and use it to serve the forces of evil. He is used by Skeletor to impersonate He-Man in order to distract King Randor from uncovering the great secret of Keldor. Randor is not fooled by this attempt and Faker suffers a quick defeat, impaled on Randor's spear.

History #3 (MOTUC Bios):

Originally built by Man-At-Arms to cover for He-Man when Prince Adam is needed, Faker was abandoned in the royal junkyard after his first mission and salvaged by the evil warrior Tri-Klops. At the request of Skeletor, Faker was reprogrammed to replace He-Man and convince the people of Eternia that He-Man had betrayed King Randor and turned to evil.

Variations:

Battle Armor Faker - This version of Faker was released in the MOTUC Toy Line. He came in a Toys R' Us exclusive two-pack with DC's Bizzaro.

Trivia (Clawful94): Faker was one of the earliest characters to be produced for the Masters of the Universe toyline, released onto the shelves in early 1982. His toy is a blue-skinned, red-haired repaint of the He-Man figure, wearing armor identical to Skeletor's in orange, with a sticker showing inner robotic workings over his chest. His skin color and armor are intended to make him appear as a cross between He-Man and Skeletor. Faker was voiced by John Erwin in his one appearence in the Filmation Cartoons.
