It does, however, appear as though her first transformation into She-Ra occurred right after the Sorceress's dream, and only minutes before meeting her brother. For whatever that's worth.
All good... and you have a point there. I also agree that as you said, "you loose a lot of the angst/drama/nostalgia/sheer awesomeness of their first team-up." As a kid, reading that mini comic I'd think, "Okay, he found her... now what", because the book just ended right there. I always wondered who gave her the sword etc.

I kind of agree but I see it as a necessary evil similar to how Adam has been cut out of the He-Man origins with the addition of He-Ro, Grayskull, Won-Dar, etc. Plus it makes She-Ra a stronger character on her own.
Would we not get the same effect by keeeping He-Man and just saying that Adam was left in his crib deliberatly, as Hordak saw Adora as the true threat?
