    The Great Black Wizard - Speculation and Support thread

    The Great Black Wizard has now his official thread!

    It's a mysterious and evil guy and the only thing we know is that he created Draego-Man! (source: bio of Draego Man).

    He has 2 indistinct appearances in the 3rd new mini comic. The GBW seems to be awesome IMHO.

    Some assumptions:

    He could be one of the evil mystics from the Dunes of Doom (Bcrduke)
    He could be "the unnamed one".


    Similar to the Chaos Sorcerer from Heroquest:



    What are your opinion, assumptions and ideas about him?

    I am sure he is one of the evil mystics from the Dunes of doom that taught count Marzo and Evil-lyn( others being Damon, Enchantress, etc), could be the unnamed on one but I doubt it, dont really know why but the unnamed one seems to be alien to eternia( think I got that from Snake warriors bio) and sent fores here just like horde prime did. He looks just like the chaos sorcerer from heroquest with long black hair, hope that doesnt cause a problem with copyrights. Arvulis can you put a pic up of him. Cant wait to see this guy in plastic form.

    I had a hunch he could possibly be Keldor/Evil-Lyn's son from the future, involved in some time travel-type shenanigans (Eternia Time Wars era)

    Any chance of getting an edited scan from the comic?

    If he looks like the Chaos Sorcerer, than certainly!
    Matty, Great Black Wizard figure please!

    Yeah, I cannot believe he isnt directly based on this. I keep thinking it.

    I really hope all those new characters with Great Black Wizard being topmost, are showing a future for this line, or MOTU in general.

    New characters equal new blood equal evolving storyline equals more to love, more to tell. I for one am glad they are at least working on designs and creating stuff. It's new stuff like this that could make people keep subbing, and help pad the way for the lesser fewer characters left.

    Just make sure people know that going into it. Or not, whatever, I'm in. But I think people would respond if they had a chance, so I am glad they released that art.

    This is how I imagine the GBW
    I know 2 angels: their names are Jedi_Kunle and Mikethedrummer!

    Worship the Snake Goddess!

    And that's the problem with every rendition of TGBW i've seen - he's just too much like Skeletor. They need to move away from the black and purple clothing and bone-coloured skull. Perhaps a black skull with a red outfit would work better?

    Anything to avoid comparisons with Skeletor would help. 'Cause at the moment, i'm just not seeing the point of him. We alread have the ultimate evil skull-faced sorceror in MOTU, so why do we need another one? Especially one that looks so freaking similar!

    How about giving us something more original Mattel?

    Good news GBW fans!

    In RGD #121 TG says that the colors chosen for all of the characters depicted in the wallpaper are NOT official and that the Four Horsemen will do their own take on the GBW's colors if and when a figure is made of him. Here's hoping they see the same problems we do and choose very un-Skeletor (and also non-pastel) colors for him!

    Yes yes yes! I would love this guy (and Fang-Or). Both of these feel like no-brainers. The 2016 sub looks better each day

    That's a great news!

    I saw that Kevin made a complete GBW!
    It got human flesh so I changed it... Black and orange rocks!

    I like where you're going except for the skin color. I don't like the idea that "black" in the title "Great Black Wizard" refers to his skin color. Black should only stand for his type of magic.
