Skeletron. He was never in the comics, as he was the Mailaway figure. If you bought five carded figures, collected the tokens on the back and posted them off you got sent Skeletron. As such he has no bio.

It's prompted a fair bit of chatter on the board, inlcuding the "Is Skeletron a Dead Kraken?" debate which TKW never really got over...

Ah! Never heard of him, sorry. Best to ask at the http://www.yojoe.com forum.

He's crying out for a Shadow logo though...
