    Third Mini-Comic Cover Revealed

    Cover of the third mini-comic has been revealed (courtesy of Jon Kallis)--the cover is displayed in a USA Today story which can be read here!!!!




    Worth noting:

    *Rio and Extendar are atop Grayskull Tower;

    *At the base of the tower Photog is battling Beastman;

    *BG Teela (ugh) is fighting Horde Troopers, while Flying Fists He-Man takes on Terror Claws Skeletor;

    *King Hsss, flanked by Sssqueeze and Tung Lashor, holds the Havoc Staff in addition to his own staff;

    * Stratos and four other Avionians (one of whom looks female) are flying behind Orko near Viper Tower.

    That.
    Is.
    Super.
    Cool!

    Love it! Does my heart to see Extendar again. I hope he's in the middle of the comic. Interesting to see that Flying Fists/Terror Claws are on the cover. I kind of thought Skeletor would be in his Dragon Blaster attire. Really looking forward to seeing where this all goes.

    A bit surprised (though not disappointed) they didn't go with a painted cover here, though. I love how old school this looks.

    Why is Battleground Teela at the 2nd Ultimate Battlegound? At that time she's already the new Sorceress, isn't she?

    BTW to confirm speculations:

    The one character most fans hound them to make? Ram-Man. He's proved troublesome for Martinez because, to make him right, his team would have to start from scratch in terms of tools to make him and couldn't borrow parts from other figures. "Whenever we deal with characters like that, it's always frustrating."

    I REALLY like the cover, but yes...this bothered me when I saw it on Facebook. Teela is now the Sorceress. The Sorceress cannot leave the castle, unless she is in her animal form (Falcon, for Teela-Na). There was ONE time Teela-Na could get out of the castle in human form because of the power of a jewel, which was exhausted and discarded.

    That should be She-Ra. They have TEELA FIGHTING HORDE TROOPERS!!!! Who said that Teela isn't taking She-Ra's place?

    She's blonde.
    Fights with a sword side-by-side with He-Man.
    She's fighting She-Ra's enemies!

    Where IS She-Ra, by the way? She got two itty bitty pictures on page 1 of the first comic and I'm told she's not in the second one at all. That's....super lame. I mean, yes, the cover is VERY cool and exciting, but I think they completely forgot about She-Ra (as per normal, of course).

    I love Teela and always have. I never saw a Teela vs She-Ra thing, like one was trying to overtake the other's position...but I completely do now. It's making me start to despise Teela a bit. ...and that's really unfortunate, because I have always loved her so much. Whomever is putting this together is doing an exceedingly poor job (so far) for incorporating both She-Ra and Teela as separate characters. They are being used interchangeably and they never were before.

    Two things: She-ra isnt in the comics because Mattel considers it a separate property, and Teela becomes Sorceress AFTER the 2nd UB when Sorceress falls.

    Although it may explain more in the comic, you're talking about filmation canon which isn't really incorporated into motuc.

    In MOTUC, She-Ra defeated Hordak and he fled to Eternia. She-Ra and some Great Rebellion members followed him there. They joined He-Man as the "Renegades." She's in the first mini-comic on page 1. First and last panel:



    ALSO, Mattel said the new DC series is free to use She-Ra in their comic.

    Well...ALL canon's with the Sorceress had it that way. The only canon's that didn't (Pre-Filmation)...she didn't exist. Not sure about MOTUC's Sorceress bio though. I'm going to go check.

    EDIT: Yeah, no mention of Zoar at all in any of the bios.

    In MYP, the Sorceress left Grayskull with lessened powers, defeated Prahvus, and hooked up with Fisto.
    But while the bios tend to follow MYP, it's still a new canon and that leaving-grayskull rule might be discarded.

    Oh, that's right. I thought that was before she became the Sorceress. Still, story continuity doesn't matter that much in MOTUC. Ex. Veena in Sorceress colours. She becomes Sorceress AFTER King Grayskull dies. I think someone tried to dispute that, but it's directly in Temple of Darkness Sorceress' bio.

    ANYTHING's fair game in MOTUC's canon!

    She-Ra is left out in the cold ... again. Perhaps she went for afternoon tea at Frosta's place.

    The Sorceress left Grayskull all the time in the Vintage mini comics.

    I love this cover!
    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
