    PG 13 for me please!

    Like I said before I don't have a problem with killing but I feel the violence should be PG 13 anything else is excessive.

    He-Man should only kill in extreme situations.
    He-Man should kill in battle, but is merciful to surrendering foes.

    I'm in between these two but I voted for the latter. he shouldn't go out of his way to kill anyone, but a battle is a battle. I figure he should be as violent as Mr. Incredible. but since he's got a sword it would seem more violent than that.

    He-Man should kill just in extreme situations.

    So far, people think that He-Man is definitely carrying that sword, axe and shield for a reason...

    How is a sword a tool?

    We can all agree He-man primarily has a sword. How is a sword a tool you are familiar with with what the definition of word is?

    –noun
    1. an implement, esp. one held in the hand, as a hammer, saw, or file, for performing or facilitating mechanical operations.
    2. any instrument of manual operation.
    3. the cutting or machining part of a lathe, planer, drill, or similar machine.
    4. the machine itself; a machine tool.

    The killing thread is the one where one of the posters described them using weapons as tools. I'm fairly sure they described it in more detail, but you'd need to go and look to check.

    I voted He-Man should kill in battle, but is merciful to surrendering foes. But I should clarify. I want to see him tear through SKELETOR's Bone Warriors and things like that, but I don't want him decapitating CLAWFUL, or sneaking up behind MER MAN and ripping his throat out like Rambo.

    The level of killing should just match common sense. I think that you would consider Aragorn from LOTR, Jason Bourne, and Captain Kirk from the new movie to be honorable heroes even though their body count and brutality are different. And you also have to remember that these guys are all warriors that knowingly pick up swords against each other. It's the level of violence shown on screen that needs to be looked after. Now would He-Man go around killing people like a crazed maniac? No. He'd probably just go thru one enemy after after another to get to his goal, whether it'd be to save Teela or stop Skeletor from entering Grayskull. Who's got time to ask each opponent whether they plan to surrender or not. If you don't want to get killed, drop your freakin sword. I don't think a He-man that's willing to kill would make him less heroic. I mean no one thinks of Luke Skywalker as a blood thirsty warmonger. Even Leia choked the hell out of Jabba. And Han shot first dammit!

    I think Filmation is an unfair comparison. They went out of their way to avoid any sort of hand to hand confrontation. I don't think they've ever clashed swords unless it was one hit to knock someone's weapon off their hands. Each time they raised a weapon, a stun beam came out. It's the last thing I want to see from a theatrical movie.

    I think the violence should be similar in style, levels, and approach to films such as POTC, Star Wars, Lone Ranger...fun, action-oriented, PG-13 stuff.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti
