Top 5 Memorable Bad Guys from He-Man
Growing up, one scary thing many had to careful of were bad guys from The Masters of the Universe. While many may remember the heroic He-Man fighting the battles for the good side, there were many who stood on the other, more evil side of things. Of these bad guys, some were more memorable and stuck with us for decades. Relive those memories with these top 5 memorable He-man bad guys.
He-Man Bad Guys – Optikk
A character from The New Adventures of He-man line in 1989 through 1992, Optikk was basically a single Giant Eyeball on a robot frame. He wasn’t an often used evil character back in the early 90s, but has been brought back in modern times and used more in stories now. Although he does not have very many memorable moments, he has an appearance that is memorable to fans of the old series of late 80s through the early 90s.
He-Man Bad Guys -Sssqueeze
Sssqueeze was a member of the Snake Men and was introduced late in the line. Because of this, he wasn’t in the cartoon of the day and appeared mostly in the mini-comics that came with the actual figure. He was an Anaconda style bad guy with long arms that could wrap around an enemy and tie them up and trap them. He often worked well with other Snake Men like Snake Face and was quite an issue for those eager to face them.
A character who was created near the end of the line in 1987, Nonjor was a dark warrior that Skeletor brings to Eternia to help in the battles against He-man and his friends. His action figure came with a cloth wrapped around his body that featured a face mask attached to his chest wraps. He also came with a sword, plastic nunchucks connected with a chain, and a bow and arrow to do battle with He-Man. Since he came so late in the line he didn’t do much beyond being a figure. He only appeared in a couple of the mini-comics but he still created an image that many would not forget.
A member of the Snake Men under King Hiss, his power came from his rather ugly face and his ability to turn people to stone much like the character of Medusa in Greek mythology. As scary as he was, his introduction so late in the Masters of the Universe storyline as well as being part of the Snake Men, limited his adventures and was mostly shown in the mini-comics.
A glowing skeleton ghost who serves Skeletor. Scare Glow’s power is that he glows in the dark and the light he gives off can intimidate his enemy. Introduced in 1987, he came late in the Masters of the Universe line, and although he came with a scythe, he wasn’t around long enough to make use of it or his powers. It is said that he is a special being that was summoned by Skeletor from another dimension to serve him. I don’t know about you but an evil ghost spirit who wears a long cape and carries around a big scythe will probably scare me just enough without the power of his creepy glow.
