    New He-Man costume to debut in issue 4 of the comic (SPOILERS)

    He-Man's new look in issue 4, with a description of why he's wearing it! I'll put the image in a "SPOILERS" in case some don't want to see it.

     


    In the epic war against the forces of Hordak ripping through the pages of the current series, He-Man must don the sacred armor of his ancestors. While fans may be surprised by this turn of events, this dynamic direction for one of the world’s best-known heroes is firmly rooted in the classic legacy of MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE. After all, so long as you stay true to the core concepts, it’s always exciting to explore new possibilities, right?


    It's a nice picture, but I'm not too sure about this new look. I'll reserve judgement until I have issue 4, but right now he kind of looks like a generic soldier or knight. I do like his chest symbol though.

    I really like it, I think that's better than several of the variants of He-Man.

    I think this news deserves its own thread.

    It's okay. A little better than the other variant look, imo. Just don't like He-Man's face here.

    I see...

     
    ...the Yellow Cross is still present.

    I'm not too keen on it. It needs to be more barbaric. It almost looks like Prince Adam in armor.

    He looks a lot less muscular and large, like he does as He-Man in the other costume. This is like what Prince Adam would look like if he was fighting BEFORE becoming He-Man. I still like the symbol.

    I do actually like the look. However, it does just look like Prince Adam rather than He-Man. However, I suppose that's the point. After all, everyone now knows that He-Man and Adam are one and the same.

    just looks too generic. DC has done this with every character since the "new 52" started. every character has to have armor on and it all looks the same. i thought heman would be exempt from that since hes not DC's own character, i guess i was wrong.

    Looks a bit Iron Man-ish in the lower torso area to me and I am okay with that. I like variants as long as there is an interesting story behind them.

    I dunno...what does this armor supposed to DO?

    Snake Armor is He-Man's Anti-Snake Man Armor. Ice Armor He-Man is his cold weather gear. Thunder Punch and Flying Fist are power-ups. Laser Power He-Man is a new weapon. Battle Armor He-Man is protection.

    I quite like it. It's very cool looking... but I can't help but feel like, as with all the DC heroes, it's "New 52" He-Man lol

    This does look like Adam wearing He-Man's Ski-outfit. The face is Adam...

    If he wasn't holding that sword and I wasn't told beforehand that that was He-Man I would not have guessed. Not a lot there which suggests He-Man to me at all.

    Do you guys think this is an intro for the "new movie" He-Man. I could totally see them looking at original He-Man designs and thinking "This would not work in a movie. He can't just run around in underwear." and then deciding to try out a new, more clothed outfit. Smaller muscles fit in here too.

    I guess the 21 century He-Man needs more "realistic" physique and a more modern outfit. I could totally see this as a test of this new look.
