    No killing Skeletor, that is not the way MOTU works. This isn't like other franchises because the villain is more iconic and interesting than the hero. There are many MOTU fans that consider Skeletor to be their favorite character. Not just favorite villain but favorite overall character. There are many fans that root for Skeletor and like him better than He-Man. Killing Skeletor would be a slap to the face to a large portion of the fan base. Skeletor always gets away as to show evil can never truly be defeated. Skeletor and He-Man are like the Yin-Yang. The Yin can never actually defeat the Yang. One side just exists to balance out the other.

    He-Man vs Skeletor is a true duality. Their relationship is like summer and winter, night and day, sun and the moon, life and death. It is a balanced cycle like the ebb and flow of the tides. This the natural way of things.

    I think the first movie should end with Skeletor clearly beaten, but not dead. Turned to stone, imprisoned in crystal, something like that. He can't free himself, that's the important part. Without help from outside, he is out of the story.
    Of course, in a sequel, there would be help from outside. Maybe even the heroes who want to question him about Hordak. But he shouldn't be the villain of that movie.
    And then he returns in the third as King Hiss' advisor who betrays him and becomes the main villain in the third act. Then he dies.
    Or it looks that way. If there is a New Adventures movie it will turn out he survived by becoming a cyborg.

    Yeah, there's ways to not kill Skeletor but have him imprisoned somehow like Cape said. They really need to address Skeletor and Hordaks friendship/hate for each other. King Hsss can play an intregal part as well. Geez, this movie could be so awesome if they do it right. Praying for that!

    First rule: your hero is only as good as your villain. Rule 2: never waste a good villain.

    Don't kill him off in the first film or at least leave it open to the possibility he's still alive. Go through a few films with other villains, bring back Skeletor in the last one, and off him then to wrap up the franchise.

    Be careful killing off other main "henchmen." Some of them you'll want to have return. Come up with a template for nameless good and bad guy troops (red shirt types) that can be killed off in battle sequences.
