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

    I don't have the comic, but that must be Son Of Skeletor- yellow and blue make green

    Here's a run down of the story, just going off memory. Don't have it in front of me.

    - Scrollos introduces the story in text

    - Songster is in the royal palace telling kids the origin of Skeletor. The kids look like young tiny versions of Teela, Clamp Champ, Adam, Whiplash. Not sure if it's really them.

    - We see prince Randor and Keldor taking on Marzo. Marzo banishes Miro. Marzo is turned into an old man and imprisoned.

    - Back at the palace, Randor tells the people Miro has fallen in battle and Keldor is next in line. The people revolt about a Gar king, race of murderers and what not. The queen should take over instead they say. Randor tells his mom to go get Keldor to talk to the people.

    - Somehow Keldor accidentally impales the queen, people want his head, so Randor banishes Keldor from the kingdom. Probably my least favorite part of the comic. Everything happens as a matter of fact and without any character development.

    - Keldor with Panthor travel together and run into Hordak in spirit/hologram form. He teaches Keldor how to use magic. Tells him about the Havok staff.

    - Keldor invades Zalasia and fights the Faceless One. He sees the future of Keldor (Evil Lyn, their baby, Skeletor, etc) and hands over the staff voluntarily.

    - Keldor now empowered with the staff tells Hordak he no longer needs him and attacks him.

    - Keldor gathers an army of outcasts from around the world (Beast Man, Kronis, Tri-Klops, etc)

    - Battle against Randor ensues, acid burns Keldor's face. Keldor goes back to Hordak begging. Hordak turns him into Skeletor.

    - Back at the palace the kids make references to major things from the bios and say none of that is real to Songster.

    - Randor overhears and sadly says it is true.

    -The End

    You know it was actually pretty good, basically putting together a bunch of the stuff we read in the bios. Story flowed well and nothing weird happened like Orko becoming the main villain.

    Who is the old man in the crowd that is confused about where he is? I don't think it is Marzo because he doesn't have a mustache

    That sounds simply awesome! I'm glad they're starting to weave story threads together. I've always thought that the majority of Keldor/Skeletor's accessories were as soon as I saw Zalasia brought up in the 2002 series. Now in the Classics mythos, it's official that he got the staff from the Faceless One. Take a look at Panthor's helmet and the Keldor swords we got in last year's weapons pak. Both are "ram" inspired and fit the motif. I think Keldor comes across Zalasia after his banishment, shacks up with Evil Lyn, and then they plot to take her father's power for themselves. I'm on cloud nine right now, story wise! So very very awesome.

    That is supposed to be Keldor and Evil-Lyn's son with the mohawk correct? I'm assuming his name is Skeleteen based on the box art vote. I think he needs a figure asap because he is the Eternian version of a Dreadnok! I hope that's a mask and not his actual face though. Overall the comic was amazing compared to the previous issues.

    Reading it a second time, Faceless One hands over the staff to allow his bloodline to continue, even through Skeletor.

    Yeah the comic was good, maybe the best one of the new minis. No new information though.

    It's a Skull mask. Like in Karate Kid. (Look close you will see the string). Incidentally, that design (and name) came from the vintage He-Ro SOHM bible. Too cool not to use!

    That already was established in MVC's 200X comics. There, Keldor travelled back in time and demanded the Havoc Staff in exchange to taking baby Evil-Lyn into the future, saving her from Zalesia's destruction by Serpos. Emiliano's pitched plan to MVCreations was to have Keldor give her away after that. before meeting her grown-up self years later.

    So, Son Of Skeletor's name is............... SKELETEEN ???????

    Well, it reminds me a scene from Spider-Man 1 Movie :-

    Ring Announcer : What’s your name kid ?

    Peter Parker : The Human Spider !

    Ring Announcer : The human spider ? That’s it ?? That’s the best you got ???

    Peter Parker : Yeah… !

    Ring Announcer : Oh that SUCKS !!!!!!

However, there is very little chance for your Kayo, or Calix or Vultak or any of your desired characters if you fail to support the 2.0's & variants in 2016.... or in the future !

    This storyline adds so many layers to the character of Skeletor! He is more of a tragic figure now, and there are some very real themes going on...racism, betrayal, brother vs. brother, duty, honor, etc. Scott and Co. knocked this one out of the park!

    None of that is new. Nor did Scott come up with any of that.

    When were the Gars made into a hated race? Was it ever stated in MYP or anywhere prior to this continuity?
