I've always thought Zodac is not human (look at the fins, hairy body and claws), so I wonder now if under that helmet there's a cockroach-man with antenna
    You mean these Horde Troopers?!?

    I assumed that in the DC comics that horde troopers were a little bit like cybermen, hordak absorbed the souls and the meat went into making horde troopers

    In Modern DC Comics (2012-2016) it was explained they are basically Hordak's slaves, turned into demons who serve as Horde Troopers under a hivemind.

    I ended up putting one of those purple demon heads on a second Sunder body to create a new Horde General.

    Thanks Jukka for the explanation and motogp for the illustration from DC comics. I thought there was a vampire race in the original Horde World, but I see that's not the case. So, basically every vampire-like beings from the Horde we've seen so far (Hordak, Horde Prime, those soldiers) are mutations/artificial transformations. Now I have to assume the native race from Horde World are beings like that version of Horde Prime with the antenna. Still, I would like to see Zodac without the helmet, he was supposed to be Hordak's brother in some cannon (and I insist you just need to look at his body parts to conclude he's anything but human), but in the comic he was horrified of what Hordak had become.

    The only cannon the he is depicted as Hordaks brother was in that "Origin of Hordak" comic. You'll also remember from that comic that Horde Prime was his Father, not Brother, and he killed him and kept he skull as as a source of magical power. It could now be assumed in the classics line that the Skull of Power is that of Horde Lord's, their father.skull of power.jpg

    i like it but a few questions, when does Evil Lyn face off against Marzo? is it during the time of King He-man? Crita getting the staff, i'm sure in the other Havoc Staff bio that she retrieved it from Skeletor's grave? or did she go to retrieve it and then have to track it down from and take it from Despara?

    Im seeing a whole lot of family dynamics in this bio. So many real feelings and core ties with this. Skeletor does have love for Evil Lyn, as does her father who knew Skeletor would take the staff back. Yet another great bio from you both.

    And to you all just before the bio was revealed, DC kind of took all routes with the horde troopers, demonic, cyber, beings in armor and a mix of all the above. I think DC tried to cover all horde trooper aspects either by accident or going through the motions of evolution.

    I really like that Havoc Staff Unbound bio, lots of interesting stuff, especially the last part about Skeleteen, Jitsu and the enmity between father and son following Skeletor's return.

    I hope we'll learn more about the Skeletor/ Skeleteen relationship. I could totally see Skeleteen betraying his father at some point. I also wish that he will redeem himself and come to a truce with Dare. I'm not that fond of children necessarily following in their parents tracks or misdeeds in fiction. I always find it more interesting when characters can escape or depart from a predictable path...

    I also wonder what happened to Crita after she stole the staff from Despara. I guess Evil-Lyn retrieved the staff after getting rid of Crita... But happened between these two... The bios keep teasing something about Crita's fate!

    It would also be great to learn more about the Faceless One / Evil-Lyn relationship... or possibly about the influence of the Faceless One over his grand son, would he try to prevent him from becoming like Skeletor...

    Lots of interesting possibities storywise. Thank you for expanding the classics mythos in such an exciting way!

    There really is so much good content in this bio, the relationship between skeletor evillyn and skeleteen, evil-lyn and the faceless one, skeleteen and jitsu's forces, the battle between Despara and Crita for the havoc staff (how did crita win?) and Marzo and Evil-lyn( what was it about), Honestly this bio opened up more question then it did lose ends. Another question that comes into mind is why didn't evil lyn try to use the havoc staff more or try to steal it, as she is of Zalesian Bloodline, she would have the ability to unlock its full potential and wipe out her enemies with it.

    I hate to be a negative Nancy but…this bio just piles on even more of the theme that Skeletor is nothing but an opportunist that arose with the 200X line. I much prefer the 1980s, Skeletor is a demon from Infinitia. I loved that his exact origins were more mysterious…the Havoc Staff was his, and his alone and only he knew how to use it. Even in FILMation Skeletor had some good ideas…that never worked but it wasn't all about him being an opportunistic bottom feeder steeling things from others and claiming it as his own. Skeletor is better than that - character-wise.
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!
