Point is, when a character with as much significance as the son of Skeletor could have, has an incredibly lame and unintimidating name, it's not a bad idea to think up a more credible name. I mean this is a character that could define the future of MOTU!!
Even without using the name Skeleteen, that era's history and characters can be done justice. Not everything has to be followed to a T to pay homage to past ideas.
