He-Man and the Masters of the Universe: Rebooted and Redesigned

Written by

On the 17th April 2013 DC Comics officially released the first issue in the rebooted comic series for He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. This issue already threw in a few surprises with the return of She-Ra, but only as a member of the Evil Horde under Hordak’s control, and going by the name of Despara. The comic was written by Keith Giffen, art by Pop Mhan, cover by Ed Benes, variant cover by Terry Dodson and Rachel Dodson, and includes around 32 pages of action for $2.99 (roughly R30).

In the fourth issue of the reboot, DC has taken the bold step of introducing a new look for He-Man. The redesign has already drawn the criticisms of many a fan, but as with all superheroes and villains, it’s bound to happen at some point or another.

    Started following this reboot and as an avid He-Man fan (I have all the figurines kept from my glorious childhood), I must admit I truly enjoy the reboot. Looking forward to see what the story arc is going to turn out to be!!

    I loathe this reboot; it’s inept in almost every way – and this desperate attempt to re-kit He-Man (now a killer of humans, for crying out loud…) shows the depths that DC will sink to. He is NOT a generic tights-wearing humdrum superhero from the usual stable – and shouldn’t be treated as if he were.
    DC should leave well alone if they cannot do better than bad writing, skewed characterisation and canon-clashing reboots like these sorry – and doomed – efforts.

    Abysmal. Period.
