Heroic "Secret Identity" Of He-Man
Real Name: Adam, Of The House Of Randor
Prince Adam, born to King Randor and Queen Marlena, has possibly the hardest role to accept on the entire planet. On one hand he is the most powerful man in theuniverse and savior of many, but to keep his identity as He-Man a secret he himself must act the fool. Adam considers that acting like a fun-loving prince is actually hard work. Adam does a good job to stay sane given that his father, and Teela his best friend, are often ashamed of his cowardly antics and disinterest in the attempts to prove himself in a variety of if ways, but over the course of time, Adam learns that he was given his power to help others, not himself. Being the Prince of Eternia, Adam has many different relationships at the Royal Palace. His father repeatedly states his disappointment in Prince Adam, and time and again Adam confirms Randor's fears. In stark contrast Marlena is never upset by Adam's apparent goofiness, assuring her son that she has always been proud of him, and hinting that she is aware of Adam's secret identity. Almost everywhere Adam goes, his companion Cringer is sure to follow. Adam's most important confidant is the Sorceress. The Sorceress spoke to Adam through telepathy even at a young age, proving that she was a nurturing presence throughout his childhood. Prince Adam's only real powers outside of his powers as He-Man are his telepathic skills. Adam has received a very good education and knows a lot about science, technology and history.
