    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 better than Snake Armour He Man.

    But thought it's actually pretty great, I hope we havent seen the last of his more traditional look, even the redisigned one.


    But there are worse things than things evolving. If they're evolving, it shows they are alive.

    And I would rather have my Masters of the Universe evolving and alive than stagnant and dead.

    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 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'm on the fence with that costume. I'd need to see more artwork before really bashing it or coming to like it as I read the issue. Right now it does look like someone got the idea after ceating a CAC from Soul Calibur! I do like the sword and emblem though.

    Looks more to me like it's actually ADAM wearing that dress! And in that case, I like it!

    I'll give it a chance and see where it goes. It's more the color scheme and those armor plates on the side of the leg that I have issue with. I'm hoping the "knee pads" are actually part of the boots.

    I second! Also...More gold?! Where's the red? These aren't his colors. I hope this is a temporary outfit.

    Except for the sword, nothing in that picture reminds me of He-Man, they stripped him of everything that made him stand out. I think it's a very regrettable decision and I hope this won't affect the upcoming movie designs. I even wish that Mattel would step in at this point, because it seems like the Adam persona is completely usurping He-Man's territory.

    everything DC does is under consent of mattel, in fact almost everything is suggested by mattel , example: Despara , the new look of Hordak.

    I have no problem with Despara or Hordak's new look, those are great designs ... but to change the main hero into something so drastically different shows how little confidence they have in this brand.
