    Should He-Man have super strength in the new canon?

    Should He-Man be all Filmation and MYP Class 100 strong in this new canon, or should he have just above average strength like he did in the mini-comics before Filmation?

    I'm in the middle...I love Filmation but it gets kind of silly after a while...

    It's hard to maintain a realistic approach...if he hurls a mountain one minute...but then struggles to break free of some goon the next...

    I think thats one of the things that really bothered me about the new cartoon...he just didn't seem super powerful. Sure, he could do amazing things, but honestly I wanted to see him do the impossible. But then that wouldn't make for much conflict, would it....

    Tell me about it. He-Man's strength jumped the shark tenfold when he moved a moon.

    Stronger than the other characters but not "Stupid" strong. I don't care it 1 time he lifts something ridiculous by calling on the power of the ancients or whatever and seriously has to struggle to do so.

    He's always had super strength (save for the very original mini comics). Why change it now?

    Oh I dunno. His fracturing that huge cliff and heaving it at Serpos seemed pretty super powerful to me!

    im for middle strength. filmation went way to far might as well put blue tights on him too
    i think he should be "magicaly strong" after all he does have the power of grayskull, but i dont think we should see people throwing things to the moon or throwing mountains
    defiantly more stamina than everyone and be able to take alot more abuse than normal people.

    He's had it then too with the super-suit. I'm talking about the degree of super strength.

    He-man should be able to run as fast as the antelopes; lift a small vehicle, or stop a stampeding elephant (eventually). he should have trouble breaking beastman’s grip. He should be the strongest character physically, but just barely. If 3 or 4 of the strongest characters hold him down he should not be able to break free (unless he uses his brain and other skills).

    He better be as strong as possible. Otherwise, it's pretty stupid to call him the "most powerful man in the universe" which is what the general public remembers.

    Otherwise, let's just make a Spider-Man movie where he doesn't swing on webs or a Super-Man movie where supes can't fly.

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!!

    Actually the original Superman didnt fly. he leapt tall buildings. He was later revised to be able to fly. And more recently he was revised so he can’t move the moon or throw a mountain anymore. So he-man has no competition in moon moving abilities. (well, maybe swift wind)

    You can still have he-man be the most powerful man in the universe, without moon moving.

    Maybe not 'move planets,' but punching through mountains? Oh yeah, for sure!

    i want to see the power of grayskull. superhuman but still vunerable. like spiderman

    spidey is crazystrong but you still can see him as acessible and it never overshadows the character.

    actually they could focus on it a bit more but that is the direction.
