Bad Guy Beatdown - Tier 2 Introduction

It's been a long time coming, but Bad Guy Beatdown is finally out of the introductory tier, shaving off the worst of the bad guys and leaving us with a group of winners, ready to take on their next fighter!

Things are going to be a little different in this next tier.  Originally the rules limited the amount of source material I could use to the first 13 episodes of a series.  This was done to make it fair to some villains whose cartoons only lasted 13 episodes, or even less.  However, if they won their first round, that advantage is no longer necessary.  However, there are a few villains that didn't make appearances in all 13 episodes, like Mumm-Ra and Mon*Star, usually being replaced by random bad guys or just starring their lackeys. So now, I'll be watching extra episodes so those villains get all 13 appearances they're due.

Respect posts will be shorter now as well.  They will now feature a short recap of their powers (and any additional powers gleaned from additional episodes) and their first battles.  Because most of the posts will just be restating previous posts, there should only be one week between fights, barring any personal distractions.

If you want to see how each fighter arrived at this level, please check out the Bad Guy Beatdown page here! And come back next week to see our first fight, my two favorite Filmation big bads, Skeletor v Tex Hex!
