    Should Draego-Man become a new faction LEADER?

    With the reveal of Dragon Blaster Skeletor, I began to think about some of the images I have seen on here with Draego-Man and other dragon characters from other lines in people's collections.

    When I got Draego-Man, I really didn't know where to put him in my collection. I didn't want him in Skeletor's clan. I finally put him with King Hsss and the Snake Men because the original dragons fought against Snake Men, so if Draego-Man was shunned by the original dragons, it made sense he would side with an enemy of the dragons. Also, he just looked right with them.

    Now that we have Dragon Blaster Skeletor, who enslaves a dragon, I see in the future Draego-Man embracing his dragon heritage eventually and coming back to Darksmoke to try to enslave/rule/liberate/lead them as "payback" to the original dragons. I see him also at odds with Skeletor now. He is also at odds with King Grayskull's descendants.


    So, do any of you support the idea for Draego-Man to be leader of a new faction? It would be interesting to see him leading an army against Skeletor, Hordak, King Hsss and He-Man/She-Ra!

    Draego-Man's Bio:
    During the Great Wars, the Dragons of Darksmoke fought in many epic battles against King Grayskull and the Snake Men. A magical half human/half dragon creation of the Great Black Wizard, Draego-Man was shunned by Granamyr and allied himself instead with the Free People of Eternia. After the truce of the Three Towers, Draego-Man became so disgusted with the humans that he isolated himself from all civilization, living as an outcast in the Caverns of Rakash. After several millennia of bitter retreat, Draego-Man discovered Skeletor's plans to enslave his dragon kin and use them as weapons against the Royal Palace. He returned from hiding to join Skeletor's Evil Warriors seeking revenge against all who betrayed him. Draego-Man uses his flame breath and ability to manipulate fire to battle for the side of evil!

    I feel the same way. Draegoman is too cool to be a henchmen. In my canon he joins forces other factions when its his best interest only to leave when the ordeal is done.

    Nah, I don't want to use him as a faction leader. He seems like a angry loner to me. I mean, he'll help out Skeletor in stuff that he feels concerns him, but otherwise I imagine him to be angry, self-centered, and bascially a powder keg. He won't be starting any wars or rallying troops, but you DON'T wana run into this guy - period. Anything'll set him off.

    I brought this up when he first came up. I'd totally be on board. He's WAY to cool to just be a henchmen. I'd love him to be the leader of a a bunch of Dragon Men like King Hiss leads the Snake Men.

    No. We have loads of factions to get through. I don't need another yet. Let's get some more GR, Horde and NA characters first.

    Besides, what gap would he and his followers fill?

    I do think he is too cool to be a henchman but he is not a leader. He would be more of a wolverine type.

    I don't believe Draego-Man is loyal to Skeletor at all. I got the impression from his bio that he joined forces with Skeletor in order to free the other Dragons (like the one on Skeletor's back). I can see him gaining Granamyr's acceptance after freeing the dragons and then becoming a General in the dragon ranks under Granamyr...or at least that is how he will be used in my universe.

    I also think, he is too cool to be a normal henchman...

    I would make a Fighting Foe Men faction, where he and a few others are warlords. The Fighting Foe Men faction doesn't have to be evil or good, several warriors would go through their own agendas and adventures, but the Foe Men Castle would be the central base of operations.

    I would put some other dragon guys, barbarians & other monster warriors in this faction. Maybe some guys from the Berserker Castle, too...

    This faction would be nothing like the others, it would be something chaotic and wild, without any real true leader... Just a bunch of wild, angry and noble guys...

    I don't know about a faction leader, but since he is good at turning on formar allies, maybe (with Skeletor's help) during all of the fighting he can invade Darksmoke and and do something provocative, like murder (or enslave)Granamyr. He can then enslave the rest of the dragons, oppress them and magically force them to serve his will. Then turn on Skeletor and fight everybody.

    It would be very tragic due to the death of Granamyr and the eventual force that would have to be used to combat the dragons.

    EXACTLY. He IS his own faction. Like Gygor, or Evilseed, he is a force unto himself, and he finds himself aligned with Skeletor more often than not, but really has his own agenda.

    This is how I see him as well. In my collection I have him off to the side looking down on everyone. I think he's an independent, alligned only with himself but ready to team up when it suits his ultimate purpose. The wild card factor makes him that much cooler IMO.

    IN MY CANON™, Draego-Man is an independent villain like Count Marzo or Evilseed. I don't picture him with the Evil Warriors.

    I agree with Alexx - 100% dead-on.

    I don't know if he would be a cool faction leader. I see him more as a free lance villain (kind of like Webstor in the 200X cartoon). I'd much prefer Marzo or Prahvus as leaders of their own factions...

    I too see him as an independent wild card. In my canon!! he's been known to team up with Catra to achieve a common goal. He often teams up with Kobra Khan, who also has his own agenda. And sometimes Draego-man likes to hang out at a quiet pub and enjoy the musical talents of Bow.

    I don't really see Draego-Man as ruling a faction of Dragons. They clearly don't like/respect/accept the guy. I do think he looks a little too cool and tough to be just another henchman, but a lot of Skeletor's faction looks a little too cool for flunkiedom, so he's in good company there. That said, the sculpt has a real presence that puts him more in line with characters like Hordak and Hsss to me than say...Clawful. He looks almost regal.

    I could see Draego-Man taking over the evil warriors while Skeletor is away or temporarily joining with one faction or another while it suited his needs. More like Marzo.

    No.

    I like him on Skeletor's team. I like Skeletor's team having an evil flyer.

    Too cool to be a mere henchman. Maybe a stand-alone villain that helps out or join forces with other villains when it suits him.
