Inspired by He-Man.org’s Roast Gooble Dinner podcast, welcome to PGPoA’s latest MOTUC Bio Discussion!
Real Name: Torrant Krazut™
Following their father’s untimely death, Torrant grew up bitter under the rule of his older brother Ceratus™. After years of brooding in Sub-Ternia™, he struck a deal with a surface dweller named Keldor™ and helped lead his forces in a raid against Randor’s army during the Great Unrest. Although Keldor’s plan failed, Torrant was banished from Sub-Ternia™ for betraying his people. He was taken in by his former employer and quickly rose up through the ranks, staying with Keldor™ even after his transformation into Skeletor®, serving as his chief brute squad enforcer. His thick hide and stubborn intellect have made him more than a match for the Masters of the Universe®, often leaving only He-Man® to defeat him. Whiplash™ uses his thrashing tail for doom and destruction.

I don’t have a lot to say about this one. Whiplash has a pretty straightforward tale (pun intended) here, reminiscent of the 200X “Icons of Evil” comics, but there’s nothing about it that I find troubling.
Seriously, while I love Whiplash, I don’t have any strong feelings about his bio. I even like the fact that it suggests Whiplash is almost a match for He-Man.
I guess the only possible sticking point is the “real name,” but this is one of the less egregious, in my opinion. Although whenever I read it, I always think of Tansut.
