So happy to have this collection
He-Man has had many incarnations. This has lots of them. It begins with the first Incarnation. With Eternia being a world that was once devastated by a great war. Castel Grayskull, Point Dread and the Talon Fighter were remanents of the world before that war. He-Man came from a caveman like culture, and had been the greatest warrior in his tribe. He was entrusted by the sorceress to guard Grayskull. Both Skeletor and He-Man each had Half the Power Sword. Each seeking to gain the others half. Next comes the comics most similar to the Original 80's cartoon series. He-Man is who Prince Adam becomes when Energized with the Power of Grayskull. Free to enter Grayskull at will, with the Sorceress living in Grayskull. He-Man defending Eternia and Grayskull against Skeletor, Hordak, and eventually King Hiss. Next comes He-Man finding his long lost Twin Sister. With her becoming She-Ra and defending the planet Etheria against the Evil Horde. Next came the 90''s He-Man. Not as good. Skeletor escapes into the future, forcing He-Man to follow him. The Power of Grayskull and the Wisdom of the Ancient Eternians merged with the Power and Technology of a time ship - the Star Ship Eternia. Finally comes the comics based on the 21st century's reboot of the 80's cartoon series. With adventures similar to the 80's cartoon/comics, but not rip or knock offs. Those comics, and that series, honored the spirit of the first cartoon and comics nicely. In every version: He-Man is a Warrior, a Protector, a Leader and Champion. The enemy of Skeletor and Defender of The Power of Grayskull. Most of all, in any version, He-Man is always "The Most Powerful Man in the Universe".
