Desmond Fishman had a rough upbringing, ok? That should at least tip the...scales.

One of only two villains on my list. Haman Karn is larger than life. She's the perfect villain. She is powerful, striking, magnetic, and manipulative. And she looks fuckin' fabulous while doing it. She's also got a decent amount of depth as a character too. She's the heir to a dictatorial military force, and grew up surrounded by murderous, evil people who would have killed her had she let her guard down for even a moment. She hates her own faction and wants to see them destroyed, but will callously use them to further her ideologcal goals of also taking out the demonstrably corrupt and evil Earth Federation as well that oppresses and exploits humanity to see them mutually annhilated. She's wonderful, I love her. Haman banzai!
She's incredible! But if you're slogging through Zeta and ZZ Gundam just for her, it's gonna be a bad time. She shows up in the back half of Zeta, and is absent from the majority of ZZ Gundam as well. I am still an apologist for both shows, but despite all the various criticisms you can level at the show, I've got no excuse for how criminally she is underused in it. I would love it if ZZ got a remake like the New Translation films did so that Haman Karn could get her screen time readjusted to what she deserves.This is the first thing to ever make me actually want to watch a Gundam.
There are a lot of [Proper Noun]s that get thrown about in Zeta, and there's a relatively complex weave of dozens of characters that all have various motivations and allegiances that you need to keep track of. But Zeta Gundam is fundamentally a very simple story. It's about Space Nazis staging a Space Reichstag Fire in order to justify usurping power and committing genocide. And the Good Guys go around trying to blow them all up.Don't worry, JU. I have seen Zeta Gundam and I still don't understand it. It's impenetrable, which is why it's all the gundam grognards' favorite show. Haman was pretty cool, though.
The pack-in comics and marketing material behind the MOTU toyline paints Skeletor as a dark-hearted sorcerer, but in the cartoon, he’s high camp. I love Allen Oppenheimer’s sneering voice work for him. He’s as delightful as he is ineffectual as a villain. “I don’t want to feel good! I want to feel evil!”
"Nya ha. First I'm going to blast my quads and then I'm going to blast you with a fireball, He-Man!"I think a key point in Skeletor's favour is that despite touting the already strong concept of a skeleton warlock, he's also visibly built as buff as the rest of the series characters; a true muscle magician.
So I guess this should have been called the Top 50 Skeletors instead.Calling him "cartoonish" doesn't begin to do him justice (injustice?); cartoons are Skeletorish
