of the Universe:
The Motion PictureComic Adaptation
are major changes that just generally make this adaptation
better than the actual film. With the exceptions of
Beast Man and Blade, the characters are drawn like their
toy counterparts, not the movie versions. For those
of you that haven't seen the movie recently or ever,
here's a brief summary (the comic is almost 50 pages,
so I won't go into too much detail). Skeletor has finally
got his act together and conquered Eternia. Meanwhile,
He-Man rescues a Thenurian named Gwildor, maker of the
Cosmic Key. It turns out that this was the device that
finally allowed Skeletor to conquer the city Eternos.
They go to Grayskull, where Skeletor is, but end up
having to use the prototype key that Gwildor has to
teleport out, ending up on Earth. There, they meet two
teenagers named Kevin and Julie (who has just lost her
parents to a plane crash) who found the Cosmic Key.
A small team of Skeletor's greatest warriors go after
them, and eventually Skeletor's whole army follows.
Soon, they end up back on Eternia, save the Sorceress,
and He-Man and Skeletor do battle on top of Grayskull.
Skeletor tricks He-Man, sending him over the edge, holding
on for his life. For a moment, it looks like he will
win, but Evil-Lyn throws a rock at his skull, sending
him over, too. He-Man catches him and offers peace,
but Skeletor refuses and falls to his death (apparently).
Later, Man-At-Arms comes from the depths of Grayskull,
revealing a NASA and US flag. The NASA flag has on it,
"Starfinder 5. July 10, 2221," revealing that
the first humans on Eternia were from a future American
space mission. Gwildor offers to return them to any
time they want, but they just want to go home. They
end up arriving just before Julie's parents died, and
Julie stops them from leaving on the plane.
