Cartoon Villains War
Worst Hero and Villain War Ever
Skullmaster was a warrior in the Outworld, a very successful warlord that was capable of destroying hordes of soldiers with a single swipe of his colossal sword. When the leader of Outworld Shao Kahn approached Skullmaster with an idea to take part in the Mortal Kombat tournament, Skullmaster declined. This made Shao Kahn angry and he banished Skullmaster out of the Outworld. Skullmaster ended up in Earthrealm instead. After wandering for countless years, he met an old man who revealed himself to be Loki the trickster god. Loki granted Skullmaster the Crystal of Souls, that he had forged from dead beings of Atlantis. For exchange Skullmaster stole the hammer of Thor, and hid it in the Parallel World.
With the Crystal of Souls, Skullmaster believed he could challenge Shao Kahn, and take his place as the Ruler of Outworld. But, Loki being Loki, he was sent to Hell instead, where he came face to face with fiery demon Malmoth. Skullmaster tried to kill Malmoth, but fiery demon proved too powerful even for the warlord. Malmoth sealed Skullmaster into another part of Hell to keep him out of his sights. During this time Skullmaster would also father numerous children, such as Count Nefarious. He wouldn't bother to raise any of them.
Skullmaster was still capable of using his Crystal to get out of Hell and cause havoc. He had heard that Lemurians had a key to ultimate power, which could potentially let him overthrow Malmoth, and become the strongest being in the universe. Lemurians refused to give it to him, which made Skullmaster destroy the continent.
Skullmaster remained in his hall, and looked for another possible source of power from other dimensions. Eventually he found the Sacred Lands of Kaijudo, with several beasts. The only way to unlock a way to the Sacred Lands was to absorb mana from a card game, so Skullmaster set his next plan into motion.
