    Is there a connection to Captain Marvel to MOTU?

    I mean was Mattel influenced not only by Conan and Heavy Metal magazine/Richard Corben's Den story but also Captain Marvel aka Shazam from DC comics? i mean there are huge similarities no doubt.

    Not sure Heavy Metal had anything to do with MOTU.
    Conan and all the barbarian fantasy elements that were the craze in late 70s early 80s were most likely an influence on He-Man for sure. No single
    source though.

    Lou Scheimer has brought up (in documentaries) that in his mind he thought about the secret identity-thing like Shazam if I remember correctly.
