Disney Vs Non Disney Villains War
Gaius Brakk was born to a farming family on the planet Denebria - one of the largest and most powerful planets in the Tri-Solar System. The people of Denebria were engaged in a constant war with their neighboring planet, Primus - it was an age old conflict that had spanned centuries, and by present times, most Denebrians could not even remember why the fighting had started. At a young age, Gaius was conscripted by Denebrian military forces and taken to fight in the war.
His training was quick and brutal; the Denebrian military were, unbeknownst to the general populace, losing the war, and were going through thousands of ships and troops every day on the front lines.
The young Gaius quickly proved to be a capable soldier and displayed excellent leadership qualities; as many of the army's best officers had been killed, Brakk was fast tracked to promotion, and within a year, he had been appointed Captain of his own battlecruiser. Desperate for a tactical advantage over their Priman enemies, the Denebrian leadership council ordered Brakk's ship to travel to the neighboring star system, which was controlled by the Saurians, to seek help. Dragaunus, leader of the Saurians, met with Brakk to discuss terms - but they were unable to reach an agreement. During the meeting, Dragaunus was impressed by Captain Brakk's tenacity and, as a mark of respect, gifted him with an aid convoy for the suffering people of Denebria.
When Brakk returned, prepared to distribute the aid and supplies to his people, he was instead met with hostility by the council - who demoted him for failing in his mission and seized the aid convoy to sell to neighboring worlds. A furious Brakk was sent back to the front lines, where, by now, the Denebrian was cornered by their enemies. Calling together a meeting of the fleet Captains, Brakk gave an impassioned speech and called on them to overthrow the government; he recieved an almost resoundingly positive response, and he and the rest of the fleet commanders stormed the council chambers and overthrew the government. Once they were safely in control, the military negotiated with the Primans and ended the war.
Though the war was over, it had left Denebria a barren, polluted wasteland - and the new military rule was soon blamed for the problems of the people. For his actions during the revolution, Brakk was promoted to General - though he did not wish for the burden of leadership, his fellow officers voted him in as the new leader of the military council, effectively giving him control of the entire planet. Determined to make life better for the people, Brakk enacted several social reforms, work programs and environmental projects designed to get Denebria's economy and eco system back on track.
As part of his plans, he employed an alien named Krang to assist in a project to transform the planet back to its original state - but Krang betrayed the Denebrians, instead creating a mutagenic weapon that would transform them into his mutant slaves.
Brakk's assistant, Crita, uncovered the plan and went to warn him; leading to a confrontation with Krang. Realizing he had been found out, Krang unleashed the virus earlier, shattering a capsule in his lab; Brakk pushed Crita aside, taking the brunt of the capsule's effects himself - leading his skin to change to a dark purple. Brakk attacked Krang in a furious rage but he managed to escape. Now airborne, the virus spread across Denebria, mutating the entire populace; withs oem mutations being more extreme than others. More than ever, the people suffered, and Brakk himself fell into a depression; his confidence shattered and his hopes for the future of his planet crushed.
Seeing this as a sign of weakness, the neighboring Emperor Zurg decided to plunder Denebrai of its last remaining resources. The attack was enough to snap Brakk out of his depression and lead a massive retaliatory assault against Zurg's forces; as it turned out, the mutations had actually made his people much stronger, and his soldiers were easily able to defeat Zurg's mindless Hornet drones. Brakk himself engaged Zurg in a one on one battle; with the evil Emperor using an energy whip to lash Brakk across the chest several times, causing severe injuries. As he lay bleeding and Zurg moved in for the kill, Brakk reached up with his hand and grabbed the whip, before quickly turning it against Zurg - lashing him across the face and shattering his protective mask. Zurg retreated instantly before anyone could look at his true face, and Brakk rose, victorious, cheered on by the crowds that had formed around him. After seeing his proficiency with the laser whip, his soldiers gave him the nickname 'Flogg' which he proudly adopted as his new moniker.
Determined that Denebria suffer no further oppression; Flogg concentrated on rebuilding their armies; transforming the weakened Mutant fleet into a vast armada. He personally designed a Mothership to lead the fleet, incorporating Dimension-X technology left behind by Krang to give himself the most powerful battleship in the galaxy. The increased arms production lead to more trading with neighboring worlds, enhancing the Denebrian economy and allowing Flogg to import the vital resources his planet could no longer produce. His actions won him the unquestioning loyalty of his people, and left the Mutants of Denebria as one of the most powerful empires in the universe.

As soon as they arrive at the Heed's lair, they confront an outnumbered force of the alien species, as multiple Heed, and also an empowered Gravitina, stand against the Mutants to stop them before they could proceed any further. During the battle, Skeletor sneaks in the core of the Heed's space ship, setting the dangerous machine, known as asteroid ray in activation. When Flogg and the rest of the mutant army hear the message from Skeletor, they retreat from the Heed's space ship, as soon as possible, leaving the remain beings on the space ship, the Heed and Gravitina, to perish in the explosion.
Fears Amongst His Members
However, Skeletor's loyalty proves worse for Flogg, after seeing not only his recent change, but also the transformation of one of his men, Quakke, into a monster, from the powers of a magic crystal. While Skeletor pressures Flogg to give more power to his men, Flogg refuses to listen to him, fearing for his own people safety.
The Space Conference
Flogg and an empowered Skeletor, who drains all of the Crystal's remain dark power, becoming a powerfull sorcerer in the whole universe, get contacted in a meeting of several alien species, forming all of them a space conference. With Skeletor explaining to Flogg about his next phase of his plan, Flogg pretends to the conference, that he wants to make peace between his people and the rest of the alien species of the galaxy. Skeletor then continues his speech, adressing Slush Head, Flogg's servant, as the new ambassador of peace. Though Slush Head has good terms with Skeletor, as he shakes hands with him, he gets a hit from Flogg, after he attempts to shake hands on him. Not only that, but also, Slush Head forgot his lines in front of the conference, embarassing Skeletor in front of the audience.
Help from a Traitor
After the meeting ends, with no other issues to be solved, Flogg and Skeletor return to their space ship, only to be approached by NOS-4-A2, an ally of Zurg. While Flogg express his doubts towards NOS-4-A2, Skeletor ignores him and instead listens to the energy vampire's motives. NOS-4-A2 them points out that the war with the Decepticons has depleted the resources of Planet Z, allowing Zurg to order NOS-4-A2 to built a planetery shield. However, as recent conflicts start between Zurg and NOS-4-A2, the energy vampire decides to quit from Zurg's servise and help the Mutants to launch a full attack on Planet Z.
Claiming Planet Z
After the short conversation, Skeletor shows to Flogg the access codes of Planet Z, that it would allow Flogg to make a massive attack on the planet. With NOS-4-A2 forcing Zurg to retreat from the coomader center of the planet, Flogg begins his final invasion on Planet Z, sending all of his mutant generals and troopers to attack the planet.
