    Sir Laser-Lot to Star in a SECOND "Digital First" Comic?



    I thought this deserved its own thread.

    This quote is from the LA Times article on the new "Digital Firsts" MOTU DC Comics:

    He-Man’s most trusted companion, Battle Cat, stars in the July 14 installment (written by Mike Costa with art by Jheremy Raapack) and the captain of the Eternia guard, Man-At-Arms, takes the spotlight in the July 28 release (written by Kyle Higgins with artwork by Pop Mhan).
    http://herocomplex.latimes.com/2012/...rom-the-1980s/

    I was looking through Geoff Johns' Twitter account to see if he mentioned Sir Laser-Lot or took new pictures of his action figure. He didn't, but a person asked him this:

    Geoff Johns ‏@geoffjohns
    “@UniversoDC1: @geoffjohns Sir Laser Lot We'll read digitally on DC Entertainment? July 28?
    (Geoff put the smiley face)

    Now, if you read Sir Laser-Lot's bio...it explains that The Mighty Spector or another "Time Agent" brings him to the future and Sir LL becomes the new Man-At-Arms. From that Twitter message, (combined with the LA article) sounds to me like that July 28th comic about Man-At-Arms isn't about Duncan, but about Sir Laser-Lot.

    What are everyone's thoughts/feelings on this?

    EDIT: Thought you were talking about different one

    I downloaded it - pretty short but it's only .99 cents.

    Basically ties Sir Laser Lot into the mythology rather briefly through exposition, and introduces
     
    two children as characters that it seems we will be following as they learn about these heroes/villains.
    .

    The last page was interesting -

     
    with the Evil Warriors all gathered. I don't mind the updates of them, as they mostly are in the original spirit of the designs, but even though I was happy that out of all of them Evil Lyn is the only one who gets to speak a line, I was a bit "meh" about her "purple skin" redesign - don't we already have enough variations of her skin color (fluorescent yellow, Caucasian, the lighter yellow used in a few other places, etc.)? I wish they had gone with an existing one. I always liked that Evil-Lyn wasn't so other-worldly and was just evil.


    That's a minor nit-pick, though - it was interesting. I'll download the rest - actually these are the first digital comics I have ever bought. Normally I'm not going to pay $3 or $4 for a digital version the same as a print version, but since these are exclusive and only .99cents I'll continue to pick them up.

    Oh, I mean the THIRD "Digital First" issue. Issue #1: Sir Laser-Lot, Issue #2: Battle Cat, Issue #3: Man-At-Arms...except from the information I posted above, I think "Man-At-Arms" is going to be about Sir Laser-Lot in the future and not about Duncan at all (as per Sir Laser-Lot's bio).

    Me too! It's my first purchased digital comic, but second overall. My PS3 Green Lantern game came with a free code for an exclusive digital comic about the movie. It's neat, but the MOTU one is better.

     
    I pretty much agree about Evil-Lyn. I wish they would have picked something more similar to what most people remember, instead of making her Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty.

    LOL yeah, it's easy to get confused.

    Basically we have two series now - the "He-man and the Masters..." and these "Masters..."

    And, really, a third if we count the mini-comics coming with the figures (which, for completists sake, really should be digitally available too - free for those that buy the figs, though probably too late for that).

    Hey, new media though - can't really complain.

    But from the other thread, it does appear many have similar feelings about Evil-Lyn. Aside from her, I didn't object to any of the other redesigns.

    I presumed that SLL would return, seems like this was only a "prologue".

    I hope the man at arms issue has something to do with Duncan. SLL is pretty cool and all but I would hope the new figures don't overrun the established ones. And why only SLL and the xman...er...spector.....where's Draego Man?

    I'm guessing the SLL story will be picked up again at least once more in the digital comics. I don't really expect to see him in the main series. Wouldn't be totally surprised if Spector pops up in the last digital comic to take him to the future or something.

    What might be cool, is if the Man-At-Arms issue is about the MEN-At-Arms (the different guys that had the title). Since the first issue was pretty short, I doubt we will see that, but I think it would be cool! The MAA before Duncan, Duncan, Clamp-Champ and Sir LL. A little glimpse into each of their lives.

    That would be cool with me. I'm kinda curious where SLL will fit in as I thought clamp champ replaced Duncan. Wonder if TG is planning on killing off clamp champ as well.....

    I think the skull is how Skeletor changes the timeline to make all the masters forget who they are. I bet they are tying the two series together. Evil Lyn looked a lot like the "Dare" version of her character.

    What you're proposing about the third issue focusing on SLL is possible, I suppose. But since the first comic wasn't a complete story, I'm assuming the digital comics will all tell one story with each chapter focusing on a different character. So for example the Battle Cat issue

     
    could explain what was up with the skull


    and the July 28th issue could pick up after that. We could learn a bit about the continuation of SLL and his story in other comics even if he isn't the focus.

    at any rate, I aim to figure out how to view these comics, because I'll buy them. That being said, I really hope for a print version collection eventually. Is that a vain hope?

    Havent read any of these yet, but I am very very very (yes three) excited that they are supporting it like this. more more more. I let it wash over me, without expectation, and that makes it more sweet when it comes.

    I think the series will be collected after it's over. 6 main issues and 12 digital firsts. They will probably do 3 Trade Paper Backs for them (6 issues each) to get the most for their money. It would be nice to have it in 1 or 2 books though.

    I won't lie, I like the depiction of SLL in this book, I still dislike the figure, if he came with an alternate head I MIGHT consider buying him, mainly because of my 'museum of black characters' collection, though SLL still would belong in that collection, I dislike the design so much I don't have to get him. (I'm considering adding Panthro, Classic Mumm-ra, Jazz from Transformers as well as Prime Cliffjumper based on the VA but again those are arguable

    Maybe the skulls powers won't affect animals, so Battle Cat is one of the few characters who know somethings not right...

    I suspect that Clamp Champ "retires" after killing Duncan in battle. That would probably be something hard to live with, despite the circumstances.

    We need more villains in the 30th line since Draego-Man was so well received. Man, I really hate these spoiler tags. SPOILER ALERT: They really are a pain!

    I read it as Clamp Champ serving as MAA for Randor and Sir Laser Lot serving as MAA for King He-Man, and that fits for me cuz I guess I always assumed that Randor reigned for quite some time, thus there was quite a bit of time for Clamp Champ to be MAA before SLL took over. And Clamp Champ must have been killed or retired (like Captain Atkin suggested--cool idea man!), thus prompting King He-Man to send Spector to get SLL to be his new MAA. OMG. LOL. BRB.

    Did Guru not realize that as far as canon says, SLL can't touch people without them burning? If this is the case, how the hell would he train Dare? What is SLL gonna do, use a laser pointer to show him where to point his various limbs ?

    I think the digital comic was a great way to showcase Sir Laser-Lot and raise fan opinion about the character, but just like in Sir Laser Lot's bio, I hate the idea of more Spector and time travel. I'm not a Spector hater (I tolerated him), but now he's quickly becoming an annoying Mary Sue character. Skeletor fears Spector stopping him? Laser-Lot by himself isn't bad, but Spector in his stories isn't doing him any favors.

    Potential Spoilers for the digital comics plot:
     
    Unfortunately, we might see Spector rescuing Laser-Lot from Snake Mountain and bring him to King He-Man to become the new MAA.

    Potential Spoilers for the digital comics plot:
    If anything, I was confused why Skeletor wouldn't be more concerned with SLL given he is obviously a lot more powerful than Spector- regardless of the time travel crap being factored in. Also, how the hell would Spector be able to monitor every point of the time space continuam? To my knowledge all his suit does is allow time jumping not monitoring time and space itself; last time I checked, that was Zodac/Zodak's job. (In B4 TG claims the Spectormobile does it).
