Years ago, two leaders battled for their homeworld Eternia, a fantastical world where compassion struggles against greed. Where one became the good King Randor, the other became the monster Skeletor who plans to rise once again and conquer Eternia. To protect the kingdom, the mystical powers of Castle Grayskull chose a hero - Randor's lazy, impulsive teenaged son Prince Adam. Although a little reluctant to take on a new secret identity, Adam may not mind the name He-Man once that can help his father. Written by Max Vaughn

I Totally HATE Critics
29 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

First for those that think that this will never replace the original. The intentions are not to replace the original. The point is to bring He-Man to a new generation, and to give it fresh ideas. Also WAY better animation. As a fan of the 80's series I find this one much much better. This is do to the fact that as a child in the 80's the animation was great to me, because that was as good as you ever seen it on tv. But now that I'm older and times has changed I'm glad to see one of my shows from my childhood again, and with a facelift.

I don't understand you people that get on the internet to type out these long messages just totally ripping at stuff that other people like. If you dislike it SOOO bad turn the channel. No one wants to hear you whine about not liking it. Sure there are things on TV that I don't like, but I don't get on the web knocking them. Why don't I? Because I know there are people out there that do like it, and I'm not out to rain on other people's parade.

Oh, and about Cringer/Battlecat not talking; I'm glad. I always wondered as a kid why the cat talked. I always felt it was too Hanna Barbera. Though not to knock Scooby, I love him. But Scoob talking just fit the format of that show. Cringer talking on He-Man just didn't seem to fit. The only way it would work is if later, maybe during the second season, something happens to him that makes him start talking. Or maybe he does something that makes the Sorceress reward him with the ability to speak. Another could be that something happens that makes Adam/He-Man hear the cat speak through telepathy, and only he can hear him. Although there is fantasy and magic in the show there still is a base of reality, and showing why and how Cringer/Battlecat talks would be the only way to do it. For some reason I don't think people questioned stuff as much as we do now.In the original series most were just like, "Ok, the cat talks", and we just accepted it. But now we like to have things explained in more detail. Giving a reason why Cringer in particular, as a cat, talks would make alot of sense, because if I'm not mistaken Skeletor's cat didn't talk in the original series. Hmmm.

The only think I hope is that they don't ignore the fact that Price Adam has a long lost twin sister, Princess Adora. I'm dying to see "She-Ra: The Princess of Power" with a face-lift. Just as long as they revamped it like He-Man, and cut out all the stuff about morals. And taking out the morals at the end would also remove the annoying Loo-Kee. I also think they would need to cut out the talking "Broom", and give Madame Raz a total make-over.
