Do agree that the Skull as written was somewhat lackluster. As a pulpy-type villain he was alright, and I didn't need to see him eat a baby or anything but he could have used a bit more of an edge.

The people scattered gold-dust before my horses feet;
But now I am a great king, the people hound my track
With poison in my wine-cup, and daggers at my back."
