Storyline

Years ago, two leaders battled for Eternia, a fatastical land where compassion struggles against greed. Where one became the good King Randor, the other grew into the monster Skeletor who plans to rise once again and take Eternia. To protect the kingdom, the mystical powers of Castle Greyskull chose a hero - Randor's lazy, impulsive teenaged son Adam. Although a little relucant to take on a new secret idenity, Adam may not mind the name He-man if it can help his father. Written by Max Vaughn

Where the older show left off, this one picks up and Improves!
18 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The visual style of this show is very reminiscent of the early Image Comics of the 1990s. In other words - a lot of posing and displays of massive power, with very few actual injuries.

The combat style aside, the character development is excellent. Each of the characters is moved forward in interesting and involving ways. The show has the obligatory level of coming-of-age stories, but no more-so than any other Saturday Morning action series. All in all, this show is a solid effort at creating a reasonable storyline with strongly developed characters and plot lines that are easy enough to follow for children, while being intricate enough for teenagers to feel like they can watch with interest and not be considered childish. Good stuff.

All in all, I'd say this show was very good for the storyline of the He-Man universe, and it certainly would have been even better had it continued.
