Mr. Skeleton is a huge, demonic undead creature standing approximately 20 feet tall, thin with bone-white skin. His hands are giant and claw-like.

Has charged into a military base and killed soldiers by the dozen. It has human intelligence and was probably once human, but it seems to be motivated by little more than its own lust for death and destruction. At one point, it sent a thug to assassinate the president of the United States. Later, it personally went about capturing US generals and other military personnel which it brought back to its den and dipped in an acid bath, reducing them all to skeletons. It was eventually broken into a pile of bones by the Minute-Man , though it had proved more than a match for him on their first encounter.
