Real name: Keldor
Mortally wounded in battle with his half-brother Captain Randor, Keldor turned to his dark-arts master Hordak to save his life. Hordak merged Keldor with an extra-dimensional being, changing him forever into Skeletor, Overlord of Evil! He gathered together many of Eternia`s greatest outcasts and evil warriors in his quest to gain entry into Castle Grayskull and obtain what he believes is the universe`s ultimate power source.
Battle Armor Skeletor
Using dark magic taught by Hordak, Skeletor occasionally creates new forms of armor and weapons to outmaneuver the Matsers of the Universe. His BATTLE ARMOR was first created to help Skeletor penetrate through the Mystic Wall in order to kidnap Adora and secretly clone the Sorceress of Grayskull. The original armor was destroyed by Oo-larr after three strikes with his mighty battle axe, sending Skeletor back behind the Wall. Skeletor reformed the armor 20 years later in an effort to combat a similar battle suit now worn by He-man. Although lacking the mystic qualities of the original, his new armor was stronger and more powerful. Skeletor, Evil Lord of Destruction is now protected by his magic BATTLE ARMOR!
Dragon Blaster Skeletor
As the ruler of Eternia following Randor’s banishment, Skeletor created a new magical armor infused with an Eternian Dragon, giving him the power to paralyze his enemies at first glance. His rule was cut short, however, when Skeletor’s former master Hordak returned from Despondos with the help of Evil-Lyn. Hordak not only overthrew Skeletor, but drove the Snakemen into hibernation. Forced into a war on multiple fronts, Skeletor continued to lead his Evil Warriors into battle, often having to fight side-by-side with his former enemies – the now renegade Masters of the Universe. Perched on his master’s armor, the Evil Dragon “pet” of Skeletor stops his enemies cold with his paralyzing jet spray of venom.
Terror Claws Skeletor
In preparation for the Second Ultimate Battleground, Skeletor commissioned a new armor upgrade from his chief weapons master, Spikor. Arming himself with Terror Claws, Skeletor leapt into battle against the Snakemen, Horde Army and the Masters of the Universe. In single combat he slew Gygor, Lord of the Vine Jungle, and eventually fought and mortally wounded his former master. Finishing Hordak off with a magical spell which drained his essence, Skeletor learned of the might of the Horde Empire, and quickly turned his ambitions to the stars. After the battle, Skeletor left Eternia behind in favor of a grander prize – as ruler of the entire Universe!
Laser Light Skeletor
After taking command of the Unnamed One's Revenge Squad, Skeletor led his all new group of Evil Warriors against the Trollan’s defensive stronghold. Breaking into the Temple of Power using Horde Prime's Vortex Key, Skeletor absorbed ultimate power from the Star Tree, gaining his Laser Light abilities. Preparing to flee, Skeletor was confronted by his old enemy He-Man on the Jaw Bridge Gate. In their climatic final duel, Skeletor was defeated when He-Man used the Power of Grayskull to separate Keldor from the demon that kept him alive. With a clear mind, in what he thought was his dying breath, Keldor gave his nephew the Vortex Key asking him to protect Eternia as the true ruler and heir to the throne.
Dark Despot Skeletor
Skeletor triumphant! After finally using the stolen Cosmic Key to beam his army of orcs, skeletons, centurions, and a Robot Knight battalion into the Palace of Eternos, Skeletor claimed the Scepter of Power. Adorned in the black robes of ancient Gar kings, and armor forged by Spikor in the heat of the magic fire of Draego-man, Skeletor raised his Havoc Staff, itself transformed with secrets stolen from The Faceless One, as a symbol of Skeletor's new imperial order. While his fight with his rival He-man reached into the cosmos, Skeletor eventually fell in battle only to be reborn again years later with the magic of his secret bride Evil-Lyn, who fashioned her own regal attire after that of her mother Queen Malinga. His deadly visage temporarily misshappen by the effects of the life-giving Scepter of Power, Skeletor regained his kingly garments and once again united the armies of darkness under his skull sigil. Now facing both Twins of Power on Eternia, Skeletor sought new dark alliances in a plot to steal the devinity of the old gods, including the evil Snake Goddess Serpentia.
After his epiphany at the Celestial Library, Skeletor hatched a complex plan that transcended even his death and resurrection. Scheming to steal the power and knowledge of the gods, Skeletor absorbed energies from the Startree, which transmuted his blood into godly ichor. He deceived Adam into restoring Castle Grayskull, and tricked the evil Snake Goddess into divulging the language of the gods, enabling him to decipher the divine secrets of Grayskull's Great Eye. Forcing He-man to surrender the Sword of Power before the Great Eye opened, Skeletor was sublimely transformed. Clad in golden armor and a horned helm, he proclaimed his godhood and demanded that He-man kneel. Refusing, He-man broke his bonds and grabbed hold of his blade, calling upon the Power of Grayskull and battling Skeletor in the fiercest clash the universe had ever seen. With a titanic blow, He-man shattered Skeletor's Havoc Staff, closing the Great Eye forever and reverting Skeletor to his mortal state. Furious, the villain rushed wildly at his archenemy, but fell through Grayskull's trapdoor into the Dwell of Souls. Later, from within the darkness, a voice intoned... "I'll be back."
