Just a thought I had while reading the comments on the Skeletor bio discussion: how could a future bio retcon the Skeletor/Demo-Man merger concept everyone so loathes?
Let’s assume we’re writing the bio for a potential Demo-Man MOTUC figure. Here’s my version:
Real Name: Carcharius
A mindless demon of the dimension of Despondos, Demo-Man spent his life wreaking havoc upon the denizens of Etheria. After his banishment to Despondos by King Grayskull, Hordak attempted to recruit Demo-Man into the Horde, but finding the creature too difficult to control, he locked it away. When Keldor was mortally wounded in battle, Hordak sacrificed Demo-Man to gain the power to turn Keldor into Skeletor, the Evil Lord of Destruction!
Just for fun, here’s the other bio I toyed with:
Ages ago, a young Eternian shaman mated with a demon, resulting in the hideous Demo-Man–a rage-filled hybrid of man and monster. To save his village from the beast, the shaman banished the creature to the dimension of Despondos, where it wreaked havoc for centuries before being captured by Hordak. When Keldor was mortally wounded in battle, Hordak sacrificed Demo-Man to gain the power to turn Keldor into Skeletor.
Ultimately I decided the shaman-mating-with-a-demon thing was a bit too salacious for a realistic bio, but the idea that the shaman could have been a young and foolish Eldor is appealing.
Any other ideas on how a future bio could retcon the whole Demo-Man/Keldor merger without obviously contradicting the Skeletor bio?
