    Yes! And he should be an independent evil sea creature with a whole following of lesser water creatures under his rule. In the movie, he would work for Skeletor realising that Skeletor is more powerfull but should maintain relative sovereinty under the sea.

    Because Eternia has an Ocean.... and several seas. Though Merman shouldnt necessarily play a major role in the movie.
    How do you like that, hero!

    Arrrrgh! This is like "The Death of Balder" in the Norse myths, only MOTU-style...*sigh*...(curse you, Loki!)

    Of course Mer-man should be in it. He's one of the more famous villains of the series...i.e. if you ask non-fans who the villains are, his name is likely to come up.

    Of course. I'd like all of the original (ie. first two wave) characters to put in some sort of appearance.

    Definitely, he's a classic henchman and is generally well know. My wife (who isnt a real fan) remembers him alongside Evil Lyn and Beastman but has no recollection of guys like Trapjaw of Clawful, etc, etc.

    Anyone that doubts his popularity and significance...wasn't he the first of the Neca busts sculpted for the 200X re-launch ?
    OG villain, definitely. He was the Neptune/Poseidon character from back in the day when MOTU had some mythological elements and he was the Evil Master of his domain.

    Yes, outside the waters or oceans and all that he is not much of a threat unless he is kicking your but with his coral sword or trident. in the ocean he will rule you. with a capital R. being able to control fierce monsters of the deep to suit his purpose to suit his own needs. all things under water are all jim dandy until that giant winged whale piranha just came out of no where and bit your arm off. he is Skeletors element of the sea. do not let him slip by like a bar of soap in someones hands.

    I totally agree, it's reinventing the property in a good and smart way.

    The bumbling and incompetant henchman thing needs to be done away with in the film.
    In the jungles of Eternia you must beware, or you'll fall into the claws of the Savage Beast Man.

    Mer Man definitely should be in the movie - including him allows for a water fight It also would just be cool to see him and how they would create him - special effects-wise

    I hope in the lines of the fishman from Hellboy Sabe??? He looked very cool and realistic. Offcourse Mer-man should look really evil and realistic.

    I love all the MOTU baddies and Mer Man is one of the top. It would be great to have a subplot involving his underwater base aswell as a battle undersea.

    I think for the film to succeed it needs to be built around a great story. Trying to build a story around a huge ensemble cast could only end in disappointment. I voted yes simply because I love Mer-Man but if it would add unnecessary baggage to the story I'd just as quickly say no. It would be cool if the story involved our heroes crossing a sea or some other scenario where he really had a chance to shine. If he was just one of Skeletor's lackeys that just happened to be a merman with no real purpose I'd see it as a detriment to the story. For example a showdown with Mer-Man in the desert would be absurdly stupid. Likewise I don't want to see a set piece that was clearly built to shoehorn an extra character into the story.

    Yes he should and hopefully he won't be like he was in the MYP version of He-Man. Because he was more or less Waspinator in that series.
