    MOTU Pantheon of Gods?

    In a lot of properties, there are Gods etc. Are their such in any of MOTU's different guises?

    I'm aware that 200x had Serpos, but the idea of a God who is so easily controlled by one of his followers didn't sit well with me. Made me wonder why Snakemen would worship such a push over, unless the giant roc snake was just an avatar.

    Any help with this matter, would e greatly appreciated

    Are we sure both of those are actually Gods?

    Green Goddess / Goddess doesn't have an official bios yet.

    Procrustus...is a giant...

    Um.. her name is THE GODDESS. How much more direct can you get?

    Procrustus: So because he's a giant he can't be a god? He-Man himself calls Procrustus a god in the mini comic... I guess He-Man doesn't know what he's talking about:

    Whoa there fella, I must have missed that. Not saying that if he is a giant he can't be a God, I just thought he was just a Giant.

    MegaGearMax Don't have a problem with an animal bein a God at all. My problem was that the Snakemen had such an ease of control over him, thats what I meant as a push over. Actually King Hsss had such control over him, or at least thats how it came across.

    Teela's description was Warrior Goddess when she WAS a Warrior Goddess. At first, both Goddess Teela and Warrior Teela were really the same being. Goddess Teela was split in two by Skeletor and Warrior Teela was her other half, so technically, they were the same being. They even merged back together for a short time in the mini-comic "The Tale of Teela!" and the Goddess comments how Warrior Teela is "far more than daughter" to her and how it felt wonderful to be whole again, but she separated so Warrior Teela could be her own person. The comic ended with He-Man wondering if that would be the case or if the Goddess would merge with Teela forever one day. Being a part of The Goddess herself, yes, I'd say Warrior Teela had some latent powers in her somewhere.

    Teela's figure had already been released and re-released by time FILMATION took over. I don't think she was ever re-issued again after that, so there was no need to change the package description. I'm sure if she had been re-released after the cartoon was on her description would have been changed to something along the lines of "Heroic Captain of the Royal Guard" as they changed Faker's description between his two releases (and they also changed Prince Adam's description between his initial release and his 2001 re-issue).

    So at the time Teela was released, yes, she WAS literally a warrior goddess.

    But he wasn't a push over. Serpos could beat He-Man in a one on one fight. It was only with the Sorceress' help that he defeated Serpos.

    Serpos is proof that all gods aren't human-like. I mean imagine the God of all Beagles being an enormous colossal dog that doesn't talk. Even Shadowfax from LOTR was basically a horse to Gandalf, despite being the Lord of all Horses.

    Like Uli mentioned the other gods are Procrustus, who holds up the Earth and Teela, a nature goddess.

    I like the idea of Grayskull being a God.

    I could see him as a Thor type god.
