    Depends how you first see them.

    Is He-Man simply Adam but with super-powers?
    Is Adam actually a clumsy baffoon?
    Are Adam and He-Man totally different personalities?

    I think so. Adam is He-Man, not two different entities.

    I say Prince Adam/He-Man, because that's what I grew up with basically. I do love the original mini-comics too, but always treated them as though he had already changed into He-Man outside of the comic panels. I have a great love for all aspects, but I do enjoy the Prince Adam aspect a great deal.

    I really like the story line in the first minicomic series where he was only He-Man (part of some sort of tribe of jungle warriors) and his armor given to him by the green sorceress gives his super human strength. I never liked Prince Adam.

    Prince Adam, definitely. He-Man alone seems too much like a direct ripoff of Conan otherwise (and I do like Conan, no doubt, just that if I want Conan - I'll go read Conan.)-- I actually prefer to see He-Man less even in Adam's case. I like Adam as a character and I like to see Adam try to solve problems without resorting to becoming He-Man. I've always liked the Masters of the Universe part better than the He-Man bit. The mythos has awesome support characters whom I love dearly. He-Man, for me, should be a weapon of last resort.

    Did I ever grow up? Probably not. I'm sure the day-glo socks gave it away anyway.

    I really think of it as Adam trying to make his father proud of him.

    She-Ra is like the proclamation of power, as it opposses male dominant law makers.

    ..as I see it anyways.

    I see it as growing up, rather than transforming.

    Optimus Prime transforms, as the world and its problems need to aswell.

    I prefer the storyline that does not include the Adam/He-Man secret identity. He-Man is He-Man.

    With that said, I interpret the Adam/He-Man storyline as Adam is always He-Man and He-Man is always Adam. You can't separate the two, they are just different labels for the same guy.
