Like many of you, I grew up watching He-Man and playing with the Masters of the Universe action figures. The guy was a badass. Unfortunately, DC Comics has redesigned the character and turned him into a ridiculous looking fresh-faced asshole.
The head and face of the new character design doesn't even match the rest of his body for cryin' out loud! What in the hell did they do to He-Man? I can't believe they signed off on this crap. Obviously I'm not a big fan of it, but what do you think?
By the Power of Grayskull, He-Man is back. Earlier this month, fans were excited about the launch of HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE, a new ongoing monthly series by writer Keith Giffen and artist Pop Mhan. This is just the newest piece of good news for the Masters of the Universe; in 2012 MOTU had a #1 iPad action game and the Facebook page is up 25% in six months from word-of-mouth!
Hitting stores in July, HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE #4 will find He-Man captured by Despara, who is ordered to bring him before Hordak. But that’s not the only reason to be excited about issue #4. The issue’s cover by Ed Benes will also introduce He-Man’s new look for DC Comics!
In the epic war against the forces of Hordak ripping through the pages of the current series, He-Man must don the sacred armor of his ancestors. While fans may be surprised by this turn of events, this dynamic direction for one of the world’s best-known heroes is firmly rooted in the classic legacy of MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE. After all, so long as you stay true to the core concepts, it’s always exciting to explore new possibilities, right?
Check out the image below to get your first glance at He-Man’s new look, and don’t forget to pick up this exciting new series, in stores now!
