    So how did the Sorceress go from a snake to a falcon?

    I noticed that in the original mini-comics, the Sorceress wore the snake armor that Teela came with. How did she go from being a snake then to a falcon?
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Zoar (ie: the version that came with MOTUC Teela) was a male falcon and the messenger of the Goddess/Sorceress. The toy version had the more well-known colours, and for the cartoon, I guess they just decided to merge the two characters.

    I dont think anyone that ever worked on Masters ever understood the true fear symbolism of the Snake-imagery.

    ,,(..I do.)

    Who knows, I'm still wondering how He-Man's castle is a skull when it would make more sense for Skeletor.

    Its not satanisms.

    Its animals.
    There is alot of metaphorical stuff in Masters, grounded in earth reality.
    (the Sorceress with her bird-imagery ,, and snakemountain ,, birds and snakes dont get along)

    Simple.

    Actually, when you come down to it, it's all Egyptian mythology. Set is quite often depicted as being a snake and Horus is a falcon. This is why I did not find anything odd about the Sorceress' look being Egyptian in the 2002 cartoon. In fact, it made far more sense to me than a chicken suit.

    Nevertheless, I still want to know what made Filmation decide to go with a Falcon for the Sorceress instead of sticking with what they already had. Or who knows, maybe it is as simple as Whiplash said.
