I agree with wanting things to be as good as possible and striving for perfection in things but at the same time we have to remember that nothing actually is perfect. Also, what is perfect to one person may not be to another. Their may be just as many people who like the bios as who dont so who really is to say that the bio writters are idiots who should be beaten etc.
    We all know the Character as Evil Lynn so what her real name is doesn't seem that big a deal to me. Same with all the characters. How often do any of us use the real names for these characters even if we really like them? We still always use the original names.

    Putting aside the name for a moment, you do realize this is a toy line, right? You make it sound like comics are a step down from toys, as if we're talking about fine literature here or something.

    For all those hating on the name (which does have its basis in MOTU history), what exactly would be considered a "cool" name to you? All the ones Mattel has made up out of whole cloth are hated as well. Am I the only one sensing a pattern here?
    Some excellent posts here, quoted for truth, etc.

    jii Dee is right about the inherent silliness. I mean Fisto, Ram man, Whiplash! Sound like some kind of pornstar superheros. Not that I dont love them but if those names are acceptable so is Powers.

    The name almost (almost!!) kills it for me. Demo-Man and Hector were crummy enough but this scrapes through the barrel bottom and starts mining the floor underneath. Please do not let the Guy in dispatching who couldn't give a crap about toys write any more of this.

    Ugggh.

    I am impressed by how many people are complaining about Evil-Lyn's bio name. MOTU has always had cornball names for the characters. I mean "Evil-Lyn" itself is cheesy, along with most other MOTU and POP character names. Mantenna, anyone? Stinkor? Netossa? Man-E-Faces?

    Was Evillyn Powers her name in the Original Filmation bible? When EL Beastman and Tri Klops al came from earth like Marlena and were all in the same space craft?

    Yes, that's correct:

    Much better than a teenage drama queen.

    As for the bio ...

    Eh, I really don't care all that much. It is what it is and it's nothing unexpected.

    Next!

    More fuss!

    Evelyn Powers was her FILMATION bible (from Earth) name. I'm surprised that it's an issue as I always thought that the FILMATION era was more accepted by the majority of he-man.org members than any other mythos.

    As for Morgan... I instantly figured it was a reference to Morgana (Morgan le Fay) from the Arthurian legends. She was an evil Sorceress (without going to deep about her being a healer and doing good in the end, etc.)

    Maybe her mother as from earth, like Marlena... and fell in love with The Faced One, who after she died became The Faceless One to hide his grief.

    The name "Powers" itself doesn't bother me; I'm just bugged about them using the name "Powers" for a Witch/Sorceror(ess)/Wizard; I'll get over it. But it would be like naming Fisto "Hans McFisticus" or Stinkor with "Brad S. Mellen".

    ...... did I just give away a bad idea?

    Anyway, I'll just concentrate on how nice the figure is and ignore the bio. Done and done.

    Or Morgan Freeman - he's been in some pretty evil films lately......and that would make about as much sense.

    Bill Beastman? And that's a Canon source? Yikes!

    Evelyn Morgan Powers.

    LOL!

    Sounds like some one Facebook's Friend Finder found as "someone you might know."

    Edit: LOL! Here she is without her middle name: http://www.facebook.com/search/?q=ev...velyn%20powers

    My approach? You're seriously suggesting that I'm being overly friendly... for POP favors?

    LOL!

    I dunno if you realize how you phrase things at times. You just seem really stressed-out in almost every one of your posts as of late, regarding so many aspects of this toy line, and sometimes you're reacting to things that haven't even happened or as if Toyguru is in a heated argument with you when he's not even around.

    It kinda seems like you need a break from the toy line, dude.

    I like the name and the last sentence of the bio is absolutely hilarious! But, other than that this is one of the more weaker bios in my opinion. Though the last sentence saves a lot!

    I still dislike the figure, though. Just thought I'd say that again.

    Man, Biff Beastman is better than seeing the evil future! GAH! I wish I had a suit and a pair of glasses that fit Beastman. Biff Beastman needs to take some cases.
