    The Secret Origin of Skeletor Mini Comic Thread - Spoilers



    Sneak peak:

    For your eyes only here are two panels for this amazing all new 12 page mini comic from DC and Mattel (in the same style and format as the 3 Dark Horse mini comics from 2012).

    What secrets will be revealed? What tales will be come to light? A follow up prequel to the vintage "Search for Keldor" mini comics that shipped with Scareglow and Clamp Champ back in 1986 can finally be told! At last- the Origin of Skeletor!




    I'm so glad to see Randor has his 200x Captain Randor helmet! I so want that in Classics!
    And they're fighting Shadow Beasts with Marzo flying in the back ground.
    Not sure what to make of Keldors armour, I think they could have chosen more Keldor like colours.

    Looks good. Nice spot of the 200X Randor helmet (I also wouldn't mind seeing it in classics either). Is this the same comic DC are releasing later in the year?

    Is this comic complete? I hope we get this one way or another. I think it'll be coming with king he-man early next year though. looks cool. I like the look of keldor in that frame with the helmet. I smell a potential variant (if the line was more healthy)

    No this is the Sub exclusive mini-comic that will be coming with King He-Man. DC are doing a different Origin of Skeletor comic that will be in the DC comics continuity not the Classic's continuity this mini-comic will be in. There's a thread about the DC comic with its cover here. How different will they be I wonder? Personally I hope the DC story doesn't have Demo-Man in.

    This looks really cool, I am more excited about the comic than I am the King He-Man figure.
    I will NEVER believe that Mermista beheaded Mer-Man! You sit on a throne of lies.... and smell of beef and cheese, bio writer!!!!

    I think Scott has said on RGD that the Skeletor mini-comic is based on MOTUC-bios. Just like the 3 earlier ones.
    So by that note, there will be Demo-Man possibly mentioned, or shown.

    Sorry Jukka I meant the the full size DC comic, I hope Demo-Man is not in the full size DC comic. Like you say it's pretty much given he'll be in the mini-comic as they're based on the bios.

    Ah, so I gather Captain Randor was the 200X Randor that was "pushed off" in favour of Filmation King Randor. That's very disappointing.

    If that is the case, disappointing indeed.

    Agreed, very disappointing. I hope we still get him at some point.

    Very cool, indeed.

    I'd love a set of the princes together!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Prince Keldor does look pretty cool there.

    Also, seeing as Mattel trademarked Illumina, I REALLY hope she's in this comic! We see in that little battle picture, Count Marzo commanding the Shadow Beasts.
     
    In the planned MVC story, during Count Marzo's uprising, he instigated a Gar massacre after Miro and Keldor's mother's "union" was ruined. Illumina was fiercely against Eternians and Gars being integrated. She was one of the strongest proponents of anti-Eternian sentiments. Her views change after the massacre and she seeks atonement for past misdeeds.
    So, seeing as this story is taking place during this time, it would only make sense to see her in it!

    I mean, she doesn't have to be on every page or anything, but I would give Mattel MAJOR props if she's even in ONE panel showing her with fellow Gars. It would be the perfect nod to MVC and the MOTU fandom.
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    I look forward to this. Personally, I already have Skeletor's origin worked out for myself, and I consider anything else to be just interesting variants ;-)

    I would, however, like to see a figure made of the Keldor from the cover (not so much the one from the preview. I just don't think gold works for Keldor).

    Origin of Skeletor MOTUC Mini-comic Discussion-Spoilers

    Hey guys, I didn't see a thread to discuss the new Mini-comic that came with King He-man so I thought I would start one.

    I think Scott did a pretty good job with the story and love how it was told by Songster! I did have one question. Who was the guy that looked like a young skeletor when Keldor goes to see the Faceless one and he has a premonition of the future? Is that really Keldors and Evil Lyns son?

    So is the origin different from the 2002 cartoon one? I'm not sure if I am going to keep King He-Man and would like to know about the comic just in case.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    It elaborates on the 200x story! Keldar still gets burned with the acid but the story starts at the beginning of the great unrest. Apparently keldar gets set up like he killed his mom and gets banished by his brother randor. Keldor is angry about it and starts learning the dark arts to take back the thrown since he is first born.

    Oh without a doubt, just look at the gauntlets/wrist guards. The artist probably just did a google picture search for Keldor to get some pictures for reference and found that one by gbagok. Not that I'm complaining gbagok is amazing!

    They show his face and say he merges with Keldor.

    Why does Skeletor have a green mohawk in the flash forward from Faceless One?
