    How much of the MOTUC story is left to tell in the bios?

    I keep reading as much as I can, but I know that the expert fans
    who buy the toys, books, etc. know whats left to tell in the He-Man saga.

    I didn't know a great deal past NA saga...very surprised by King He-Man and son of He-Man.
    It kinda answers my controversial Bromance/romance thread that got too heated on here.

    Past, present, future? What parts of the story are missing or not revealed??

    I have never even read 1 bio and have no intention of ever doing so. MOTU universe is what I make up in my mind.

    I just want to know officially who exactly are the remaining heroic warriors that join the galactic protectors.

    I think the thread where all the bios are written up and put in order (sorry cannot for the life of me remember it's name) is the best place to spot plot holes and as of yet unanswered questions. There are a lot of little things I can think of though:

    - How does Stratos die?
    - Who assassinates Zodac and why?
    - Why does Horde Prime do nothing to try and track his brother whilst Hordak is trapped in Despondos?
    - Who is this Great Black Wizard?
    - Do Whiplash and Clawful die at the hands of Photog?
    - Who runs the Masters whilst He-man is off playing with his sister in space?
    - When does Clamp Champ stop being MAA?
    - if Hordak used the Spell of Seperation ages ago to defeat the Snakemen then how come they didn't all die back then?

    Just some of the things I have no answers for. I am also looking forward to how they are going to weave new bios for characters like Ninjor (bet he killed Zodac) Blade, Flogg and Rio Blast into the story.

    --What's the Earth/Eternia connection mentioned in Marlena's bio?
    --Who is Eldor? (All right, so I've been waiting for almost 20 years for the answer to this one.)
    --What finally happens to Skeletor?
    --Who is the Unnamed One?

    - Who assassinates Zodac and why?

    That's a good one. I guess bot the "good guys" and all evil factions would have some reason to kill him.

    - if Hordak used the Spell of Seperation ages ago to defeat the Snakemen then how come they didn't all die back then?

    Again a good one. To be honest, I dont think having the snakemen "killed" means they could never get back. Actually, a spell can be unmade, and dead warriors can be resurrected. Also look at the way they disappear in the minicomic...classic "this is not over" conclusion. I agree, however, it is still more definitive then banishing them to despondos...but was it Hordak banishing them? I am not at all sure.

    Another thing I'm not really sure of is Blast Attack. He is in the secont ultimate battleground comic, and is with the (unlikely) allegiance of horde and snakemen (bet e is with snakes then). What happens after the 2nd battleground. Assuming he is still around (and that seems likely, as I cant think of many ways to permanently dispose of a bot that blows up and pulls back together..) who is he with?

    I feel like there's a lot of filling to be put in. We have the crust of the story, but I'm hoping future figures and their bios fill the pie up a bit.

    Totally agree with Keldor/Skeletor73, just because the snakemen are all "killed" doesn't mean they won't find a way back, which is why I don't understand so many people being upset with the finality of it all. Also, just a clarification for those who are interested, Scott has said a few times in passing that Mechaneck doesn't die as a result of the spell, the Snakemen bit of his is seperated and he is saved.

    Good question. I've wondered that to. Unfortunately I don't have any anwers.

    In fact I have a question. when this line is done what bios and parts of the story will we miss out on because certain figures didn't make it to the lite of day.

    Someone should ask Scott for a comprehensive list of what mysteries and plot holes we have remaining. Of course he'll just say "Keep reading the bios". Come on, we're all thinking it, I just happened to say it

    This was my concern as well and in a Q&A he said i was asking a hypothetical question. I precisely asked if he could release the rest of the bios that would be left if the line ended early and he was not helpful at all.

    My Bio-Narrative thread is striving to help answer this very question. The Bios are hardly the terrible story many seem to believe (in my opinion). Put together in (what I think is) the appropriate order, there's quite a tale, with lots of room for our own adventures to fit. There are lots of great questions to answer yet!

    As to those posted here, I'll toss in my two cents, for all that's worth:

    - How does Stratos die? (I'd love to know this one, and more about his sucessor.)
    - Who assassinates Zodac and why? (This is a plot point I'm pretty keen on. Can't wait!)
    - Why does Horde Prime do nothing to try and track his brother whilst Hordak is trapped in Despondos? (I get the idea that HP wanted his kid brother out of the way.)
    - Who is this Great Black Wizard? (From the looks of it all, a big trouble maker.)
    - Do Whiplash and Clawful die at the hands of Photog? (See, this could be killed, could simply be defeated. Until we hear otherwise, it's up to you!)
    - Who runs the Masters whilst He-man is off playing with his sister in space? (My money is on Clamp Champ, though I wonder what hapens to him, since SLL is MAA later on when HM is king.)
    - When does Clamp Champ stop being MAA? (Exactly!)
    - If Hordak used the Spell of Seperation ages ago to defeat the Snakemen then how come they didn't all die back then? (He never really used it that way though, did he? He did try to rip the planet apart to get the Star Seed though!)
    --What's the Earth/Eternia connection mentioned in Marlena's bio? (I'd bet-shades of Planet of the Apes-that Eternia was settled by lost astronauts from Earth or something, as that was hinted at in I believe cut scenes from teh '87 film.)
    --Who is Eldor? (I think he's simply one of Eternia's great wizards and the original leader of the Council of Elders.)
    --What finally happens to Skeletor? (I too want more details about his cosmic butt-kicking at the Jaw-Bridge to the wherever it was on Trolla. And does every major fortress of power have a Jaw Bridge instead of a drawbridge?)
    --Who is the Unnamed One? (This is a great mystery of the franchise. Is it someone we already know, like Skeleteen? Orko? LooKee? Or will one mystery go unsloved?)
    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

    MOTUC bios are crap so why even bother? Stick with the old comics, Filmation and 200x for your lore.
