    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.
    Check out my band The Caterpillar Book on iTunes, Rhapsody, Amazon, etc.

    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.
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    Songster is in the royal palace telling the children the origin of Skeletor. The children look like young tiny versions of Teela, Clamp Champ, Adam, Whiplash and a few others if it's really them.... Does that mean Clamp Champ real name is Raenius?

    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.

    Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

    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.

    Ok, with that pet peeve out of the way...

    Holographic Hordak was cool. I wouldn't mind a translucent red Hordak action figure after seeing that!

    Scrollos was telling the story of Songster Singing the story.

    except in 200X, Randor like Miro before him is Captain of the Council of Elders's army. In MOTUC it seams the Council and The Kingdom of Miro/Randor coexist for some odd reason.

    Seeing a future in which a time traveling Spector changes history, you would think he would realize it is only a possible future. ALL of Skeletor's evil could have been prevented!?!? For someone who is working to atone for past crimes, this seamed counterproductive. Perhaps he should change his name to Powerless... :-D

    duh, time travel ;-)

    Wouldn't that mean that Adam & Teela know of Skeletor at least a decade before his first battle with Adam/He-Man!?!?!?

    The way the kids talked about Adora's abduction, Teela's and the Sorceres' connection seamed so caviler.

    Don't they know what a secret is on eternia anymore?

    When he asks himself why he was there is just to let us know that his mind was being used and that now it was free, he did not know what was going on or what he did. That doesn't mean he is an important character. He was just there to serve that purpose.

    So probably the same thing happened to Keldor, he was probably used by the same force to kill his step mother. He did not know what he was doing becasue he was under a "spell" or under the same mind control trick used with the old man.

    The force ( Hordak) wanted Keldor to be exiled from Eternos to seek vengeance. That's probably why he orchestrated this whole thing. He wanted to use him to free him from Despondos and probably Hordak also knew about Keldor's bloodline connection with Grayskull.


    "My brother...I...turned and...it was...an accident." Keldor bereaved while clutching his dead step-mother's hand.
    If some force compelled him, why not just say that?

    Agreed. I kind of like the idea that Keldor didn't kill his step mother. I wonder if she accepted him and he loved her or not? I wonder if this could be true for the original vintage era when all we knew was that Keldor studied magic and was lost in space/time.

    Amen. Joe fans have larry Hamma, I say we demand Larry Ditillio! he would probably be less expensive then JmS and Paul Dini. He would more likely know more about the franchise as a whole considering he has worked on multiple eras and co-created She-Ra.

    "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments" (Matthew 22:36-40).
