    Another great issue in my opinion. It was cool seeing the seeing the various interactions between MOTU and DC characters. It's typical that Batman figured the truth, I guess that's why he is the great detective. I also really liked Dark Orko and am looking forward to what he does next. Looks like the next issue will focus on rescuing Clark and Dark Orko's origins.

    I'll probablt get this as a trade, but I may pick up the next issue anyway. "Dark Orko" is something I got to see for myself

    So Orko might have been transformed by someone else, just like Orko has changed Skeletor? He's transformed the Trollans into these blue skinned beasts?

    "Such is the way of the Horde!" So Orko was transformed by Hordak?!!

    Next issue: The Story Of Dark Orko (I guess we find out what happened to him...)

    Either that, or maybe Horde Prime had a hand in this? I'm not sure if he was transformed recently, as he mentioned at the end of the last mini series that he's been laying in wait for some time. I was completely confused by this turn.
    Most wanted: Blast attack, Entrapta, Lodar, Peekablue, Flutterina, and Tung Lashor

    It feels very padded and small in scope. Not nearly as epic as it should be.

    As I said in the other thread, Martian Manhunter would handle himself far better against Battle-cat.

    But typical fourth issue in a miniseries stretch out what's going on to get to the number of issues you want instead of building something up.

    I kinda like that Swamp thing came to the defense of MossMan, not as if he needed it. I liked that they share a connection to The Green. However, I would hope that Skytree is worked into the mythology.

    They are actually called the Justice League Dark?!?!? That is the TEAM name?
    Do they watch the Crow and listen to The Cure while cutting?
    I thought it was just the title of the book...The Sentinels of magic where so much cooler name!
    Almost everything I see about the New 52 makes me want to bang my head against the wall!


    Did anybody else pick up on the reference to the Coin Trick that came with the original toy?

    I half expected him to say "I didn't fall for Skeletor's tricks because I'm batman" ...They clearly resisted the urge.

    Recall back to the Orko digital issue, the first mini series about the Skull of Power. Hordak called it father in his (lack of) Origin issue. No doubt (and I pray it to be the case!) Dark Orko is not really Orko, but a manifestation of Horde Supreme. (by far the most STUPID sentence I have ever had the displeasure of tying... ******* disgusting!)


    (FYI, that anger is directed at Mattel & DC. Not you buddy!)

    Completely agree. They really nerfed MM, but then they almost always do.

    This issue, or the series as a whole?

    I enjoyed this issue. It was great seeing some more interaction and battles. The art and coloring were fantastic!

    Look forward to seeing how this all pans out. This inclusion of 3 Justice League teams and Swamp Thing make the threat of the Masters quite a serious one. I do wish Skeletor's lackeys were involved, I miss them!

    Also I'm kind of diggin' Dark Orko, he would look pretty awesome as an over-sized Classics figure. For an alternate universe MOTU canon, its not bad...

    I enjoyed it and think it's coming along quite nicely as a little side adventure. At this point I am mostly curious about what happens to Marlena at the end of this series, because she's yet to appear in the regular series alongside Randor... and the regular series right now is ahead of this DC/MOTU mash-up in the timeline. So, where is she?

    What a fantastic nod to the old school Princess of Power media we have in this issue and the last issue. The beasts that serve Orko are non other than the beast Shadow Weaver summoned from the Daek Pool inthe Ladybird book She-Ra and the Dark Pool. The resemblance is to close to be chance! It's a nice nod to is She-Ra fans.

    Wow, excellent catch! And despite that we know she wasn't from Trolla, Shadow Weaver's appearance has always lent itself over to a link with Orko somehow.

    To say I thought the first issue of this series was terrible, the next three issues have been amazing IMO. Way better then the main series in fact.
    I don't know if this has already been suggested in another thread but I think The Unnamed One's spirit has taken control of Orko's body and he hasn't actually willingly betrayed the Masters or turned evil.

    I have to disagree with you on that one. Just a close resemblance. The monsters look is what a demonized Trollan would look like which is what they are supposed to be.

    A fake Superman eh? So it looks like He-Man didn't defeat Superman after all, which means Superman is still 1 for 0 when it comes to fights with He-Man (historically speaking, since Superman defeated He-Man in the 82 DC comic).

    Also, Dark Orko is a shark-jumpingly bad idea.
