Scientific Genius...

Issue twenty-two of the UK Masters of the Universe comic gives a brief profile of Two Bad in The Secret Files of Scrollos. In the UK comics Two Bad was often portrayed as a scientific genius who created many weapons and devices for Skeletor. The two heads argued with one another, but usually over the design and purpose of their machinations. Some people may think this is an odd piece of characterization, but personally I feel that the comic's characterization of Two Bad was far superior to Filmation's version who was yet another one of Skeletor's bumbling henchmen, the two headed interplay making the character come across sillier than most.

This is a very good way to deal with Two-Bad. Even Skely is afraid what he might do.

Cool!!

Nice how the comic book version of Two-Bad resembes the cartoon version a lot, as opposed to the way some of the other characters looked between both versions, like Mer-Man and Tri-Klops!

No other episode features Two-Bad arguing with himself better than "He-Man And She-Ra: A Christmas Special." :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

The UK comics potrayal of Two Bad sounds like a great use for the character. Since there was no clear idea of who of the Evil Warriors was the tech-savvy character. Trap-Jaw showed some skills in Filmation but I'm not sure how other medias handled the idea of new machines being made for Skeletor. (unless Skeletor himself was the builder)
