Trap Jaw kills!

In this panel from issue one (volume two) of the Masters of the Universe comic from MVCreations we see Trap Jaw effortlessly kill one of the palace guard warriors! Having spent a lifetime watching Filmation's He-Man and the Masters of the Universe series I find it hard to digest panels such as this. In the comic there was an understandable attempt to make the content somewhat darker than the cartoon by Mike Young Productions. However, in the show, I never really got the impression that Trap Jaw was a killer. That said, even if he was, the cartoon could never show such an act...

It's like something out of a modern day action movie ... I feel sorry for Man-At-Arms having to witness this too!

Whoa! That's kinda cool but at the same time it's shocking, cause it's MOTU. At least it wasn't too gory.

The 1983 MOTU UK annual stated outright that Trap Jaw was a 'mass murderer'. It was good to see another canon finally deliver on that 20 years on.

Trap Jaw is by design a dangerous psychopath, he was dumbed down far too much by Filmation.
