Publisher’s Summary: The scourge of Anti-Eternia is unleashed on the Multiverse! Blazing a trail across the dimensions, he’s devastating each version of Eternia and stealing its power. Now it’s up to a ragtag team of surviving He-Men to recruit the one man in existence who might save them: Prince Keldor, the man who would be Skeletor! This all-new miniseries features the most iconic eras and beloved takes on the Masters of the Universe!
Anti-He-Man seeks to become a Dark God of a singular Antiverse. Thus far, he’s taken his show on the road and has started defeating versions of himself–versions of He-Man–from other universes, as doing so, grants him additional power. Thankfully, surviving He-Men have solicited the help of Prince Keldor (Skeletor) to take down the singular figure that threatens the Multiverse.
He-Man & the Masters of the Multiverse (2019-) #1 is well-paced and, although there is a good deal of setup, never feels weighed down or too dense to enjoy. Tim Seeley’s script provides He-Man fans, new and old, good reason to be excited, as this series offers readers a fresh look at the He-Man/Skeletor relationship. Sure, the plot of this series feels a lot like that Jet Li movie, The One, but it works well nonetheless. I’m looking forward to seeing Skeletor get to play hero as much as I am looking forward to meeting additional ‘He-Men.’ from
This is the He-Man story that I’ve been waiting for; He-Man & the Masters of the Multiverse is fresh and exciting, and its debut is an impressive one. I highly recommend He-Man & the Masters of the Multiverse #1 to He-Man fans.
