Thor's Day Hero: Skeletor


Look at this guy, he's got the body of Schwarzenegger, killer leather armor, a hood, and half of a power sword. Oh yeah, did I mention he's got a freaking skull for a head? Forget whatever you know of Skeletor from the old Masters of the Universe cartoon, he was never allowed to live up to his potential. The rated 'R' version would have him ruthlessly taking Prince Adam out of the picture, for good, joining both halves of the power sword, marrying Teela, and totally taking over Castle Grayskull and becoming master of its arcane secrets.

  1. There was a Skeletor meme that made the rounds a few years back, called (and pardon my French) "Skeletor up in this motherfucker!". Apparently, it started out as something someone put up on a billboard and it just morphed into an internet meme, t-shirts, etc.

    The Robot Chicken skits involving Skeletor are hilarious.

    1. Haha, just looked up the billboard, that's hilarious. Robot Chicken is an awesome show, but I've never seen but a few episodes.

  2. I always thought that the original Skeletor's hood looked a bit like a wee bonnet tied under his chin, capeless as he was. He still looked like he could have killed He-Man ( name 1000 times worse than Skeletor) in under 10 seconds though.

    1. Now that you mention it, that hood is rather bonnet-esque isn't it? I always thought of the world of Eternia as kind of a Gamma World far enough in the future to have forgotten the 'big one'. It was a perfect mix of mutants, psionics, technology, and "magic". Come to think of it, it might make for a good RPG settings with the right group. Where do we find a laid back, fun-loving RPG group though?

  3. I totally paint my Necrons like Skeletor. They're from Tomb World Eternia. Haha
