    New Adventures Of He-Man 1990 Annual & Possible Season 2

    Hey Fellow NA Fans!

    I recently just won the NA 1990 Annual on E-Bay (my last purchase for a while, I promise) which I'll be paying for within a week. This is so cool! I have all the MOTU Annuals now, and one of the POP ones, so now I will have the NA Annual as well! I can't wait to read this one!



    Cheers, Mikey

    Hey Mikey, I bought the same annual off Ebay a few months ago. It's interesting to see some of the earlier ideas and concepts for the New Adventures in there

    I liked the annual for the most part, it sticks to my prefered origins of the New Adventures where He-man travels to Primus to defend it from Skeletor (by the way this origin was done better in the UK Adventures comic), rather than the cartoon where Primus is in fact Eternia in the far off future and He-man is whisked there from the past.

    The strangest thing I found in the annual was the fact that they got King Randor's name totaly wrong. In the annual they name Prince Adam as the son of Ragnor. I could understand this type of error or name change in the eairlier annual because their source material was mainly from prototypes, like having Orko go under the originally intended name of Gorpo. But as this was produced nearly a decade after MOTU began and names and characters had been long established I found this a bit annoying.
    My Fan-Fic projects:

    Eternia: The Dark Years: Enter Eternia a world that has fallen to the hands of the Evil Horde.
    Coming Soon:Roots 2: Fear stalks Primus. (A NA sequel to Roots by Brimstone and Thew40)

    My art (mostly MOTU related ) please feel free to comment.

    Actually, it's not in the cartoon. That was revealed to be so in the continuity of some of the later UK-mags.

    Which mag was that? I have them all and there is definitely no reference to Primus being the future Eternia. It was treated in the UK comics as a totally separate planet.

    I thought personally that "A New Beginning" made it 100% clear that the writers of the NA series envisioned Primus as Eternia in the future.

    And they were completely wrong. They are two different planets.

    There's an episode of New Adventures I can't remember the title of but it shows the Mutants finding a man from the past in suspended animation who is a rock star in the style of 80's/90's Earth! It seemed really wrong to me when I saw it since it seemed to be suggesting that Primus was Earth at some time in history....

    That's "Rock to the Future". Earth does get a mention here as Hank Zappa's homeworld, but it doesn't get suggested that Primus is Earth.

    Actually, the point was that the love music and worship of those who create it is universal. Remember the penultimate musical scene in CLOSE ENCOUNTERS? Music is our universal Rosetta Stone.

    Where was a crumbling Snake Mountain? I thought I'd seen it all, but I can't remember that.

    I think they mean in the first episode where it decays after skeletor and he-man travel to primus.

    Well I always thought it was just a symbol of skeletors evil leaving the land and his power over snake mountain fading but it may well have been ment as a time lapse indicating he-man and skeletor travelled forward in time but not through space. Wish there were some way to find out for sure either way? I think it would make NA seem more relavant if it were set on a future eternia rather than than on a totally different planet.
