You know, I think this would be a fantastic project for the site. Once a month a knowledgable member could write a bio about a certain character from their beginnings to the present. I think this would be a good read for old joe collectors (like me, who didn't even know about this Overlord character) and new collectors alike. Once the bio is done, the rest of the thread could be used for discussion.
If I knew more, I would be happy to do it, but my collecting days ended about 1987 and only restarted since May.

I never knew about Overlord back in the day, but only knew about him from the DD comics. I would love a figure of him, and why not? We have Wraith and Matt Trakker.

Is it me or does Matt Trakker look like Astro-Viper?

It can be surmised that there are 3 continuities there, with some sharing bits (Storm Shadow quitting Cobra is one).
Further proof the toy line did its own thing: The Iron Grenadiers disappear in the toys after 1990, Destro appears as part of Cobra in 1992 with no mention he ever left, had his own army or what. Dr. Minderbender reappears in late 1992 as part of Battle Corps, with a story that doesn't mesh with the comics (cyborg enhancements vs. comic's clone). Zartan is clearly still in the evil camp with Ninja Force (no brainwashing mentioned).
There was a fan rumor that Overlord was Serpentor, that the monacle covered the eye he was shot in.
Basically, Overlord became a blank slate character for people to shoe-horn into whatever role they wanted him to be.
