    I love it when you take a rather ordinary villain from the classic line and really manage to make him imposing. In this case, Faker would really be one of the most powerful of He-man's adversaries in the comic.

    I don't know if this can be answered or not (prolly not), but I'll toss it out anyway. How exactly does the Skeletor we all know and love manage to keep Faker working for him? Surely if evil He-man came from a world where he was the ruler, he wouldn't agree to be someone else's lackey here, would he?

    Either way, I love that development. Really cool. That's the kind of thing the comic needed, and big time kudos to Val, Emiliano et all for coming up with such fun ideas. It's a shame they didn't come to be.

    That's assuming that Faker and Skeletor continue to work together.


    But if he did, I'm sure there's all sorts of sneaky ways Skeletor could keep Faker under foot.

    "Mattel faked us out." I love this line.
    Thanks a bunch for everything Mattel... NOT.
    Fictional characters are just that. Fictional. They have no personality or free will of their own.
    Writers and editors mold them to their own wants and needs.
    All we as the audience and fans can do is pick and choose our favorite interpretation and ignore the rest.

    That is interesting (hard to listen to though)
    Too bad some excellent storytelling just got dumped for no reason atall.
    What next? It seems every month lately there is something..

    There are some classic one liners!

    A little of this has been leaked in the past (color swap cover/Faker to be used & then unused)...but it is REALLY interesting... what might have been when getting an outlook on the whole story! Faker would have been a whole new ultimate villian!
    Val & the guys at MVC..THAT STORY WOULD HAVE ROCKED!!!
    Thanks for elaborating on the subject! Neat bit of HE-story on X-mas!

    That would have been a really cool way to utulize Fakor. I also love the idea of the two storylines running alongside each other. Oh well, woulda been nice...

    That was HAWESOME!

    Although it may be just a liiittle too much importance given to the character of faker ...

    ... I am a huge fan of the classic Anti-Eternia of the German Audio plays, and therefore have to say this story would have rocked.

    Val, did you know about the German Anti-Eternia or is any similarity just a coincidence?

    hmlol: That was a good one.

    On a more serious note - that means that Faker knows He-man's secret identity!!!

    I wonder how this would play out. hmmm...

    Nope. I don't know anything about the classic German audioplays.
    Never heard the story about the German Anti-Eternia.
    Sorry.

    Wow, that was such a special treat.

    Add this to the finding out the Cat Lady's name is Illumina and that Evil Lyn would have turned classic toy colours for a while and we've been very privileged this year. It’s sad to think though, how awesome this comic could have been if Mattel had loosened up.

    Thanks Val and co for sharing.

    I love Unemployed Skeletor's Blogs! I thought having him explain the "what-could-have-beens" about the MOTU comic was brillant.

    Man, I wish the comic was still around. That Faker story sounds epic.

    1.) This story would have been amazing. I wish MVC had been able to tell it. Thanks for sharing the inside info.

    2.) Unemployed Skeletor is my (evil) hero.

    What an awesome storyline! Mattel needs to learn to let creative people take charge of things. Their products would be more successful.

    Not sure about the Faker arc. I am sure the story would be 100% entertaining but I hate the idea of bringing in yet another villain especially one as plain as Faker. With all the new lands and ideas that came from the toon I feel something better could have come from the comic. I feel the only thing Faker brings, as a villain, is somebody He-Man could not so easily beat in a game of mercy or bloody knuckles. I am sure there is more missing from the story that I don’t know that might make this idea a little more appealing to me. It kind of sounds like one heck of a way of giving Faker an origin story.
    If I advance, follow me.
    If I stop, urge me forward.
    If I retreat, kill me.
