    I like the "H" as seen on Thunder Punch, Battle Armor and Flying Fist He-Man.

    I like He-Man's blue pants in NA.

    I even like He-Man in armor (Battle sound 200x personal favorite!)

    So why don't i like this?

    I'm not all " FFFFFFFFFF " but I can't even say "Meh" ... I just DISLIKE this!

    It doesn't feel like He-Man. Heck it doesn't even feel like Adam

    I think ComicBookResources is making fun of the new costume.

    Gone are the trademark furry shorts and metal harness the character has worn since toymaker Mattel launched the line of action figures in 1981, replaced by what appears to be Eternia’s version of football gear, complete with honest-to-goodness pants.

    They aren't far off. I had little interest in plunking down money for this title after issue 1, and I have even less now.

    I'll be interested to see how this one goes. I'm interested with what I've seen so far, but I want to see more of the look before I fully judge it.

    Also, I can't help but wonder if we'll see other characters with new looks. I know MAA had an update to his look in one of the earliest digital comics, but I wouldn't mind seeing him with a new look as well. Hopefully the rest of the Masters have updated looks also. I also think Teela could do with another update to her costume. I don't see why Adam/He-man has this but she's still wearing a version of the fur/metal bikini from the six issue mini.

    That is one of the things I do like about this series. However after reading issue 1 I got the impression that Dekkar didn't know. But in the mini series everyone at the meeting at the tavern seemed to know and Randor makes a reference to "My son's plan".

    So maybe Dekkar just wondered where Adam was going, but that bit reminded me of the old "I have to run off and change" bit.
    It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!

    Also...get her into the line!

    Yeah, I had the same impression. Though who knows how far the secret goes now. Maybe it's just the Masters or maybe Dekker as well. It could even be that everyone knows. Adam could have just been going somewhere with space like Teela said and that was all. I guess until the new comic spells it out we won't know for sure.

    I think it's absolutely awful. I hope it lasts one issue and then gets buried in the MOTU Hall of Shame with Smash Blade He-Man and Snake Hunter He-Man.

    Ouch! Are they ripping that costume apart! But these seem to be the same fans who don't like the New 52 designs on general principal. Yellow Cross He-Man even has a mandarin collar, like alot of their heroes now sport. It's the 2013 version of the Liefeld shoulderpads, big guns and leg belts.

    This costume makes the chainmail loincloth and yellow cross look awesome by comparison.

And I am left with no logical reason why a prince would become a barbarian. So long story short, pants help it make a bit more sense.
    It's a disguise. No one would confuse a lazy prince with a manly barbarian warrior in a sword and sorcery fantasy world. He-Man at his core is a barbarian. Hell everyone has barbaric roots. That's why so many characters have the barbaric bracers, belts, furry boots and underwear, as well as ancient melee weapons.

    I really like it. Looking forward to reading in more detail how/why this new outfit comes about.

    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.

    Pity I've given up on the comic already and will never see it in action...

    HE-MAN's look is timeless, and it does not need to be changed. I will never understand why people can't let HE-MAN look like HE-MAN. I don't mind variants being used sporadically, but not as his default look.

    To be fair, we don't know if this will be his default look from now on. For all we know, this could be a power-up or armor, ala Snake Armor He-Man.

    I think some casual people have mixed opinions when it comes to He-Man's barbaric appearance. Some people think he is too 80's and needs updating. They remember him not from Filmation, but YouTube videos mocking him from Filmation footage.

    Does anyone have comments on The Power Sword's new colors? I really not much like mixing gold and silver colors. I can't much yet comments on He-Man's new armor until I seen it all sides. Maybe this new Armor is modern Horde Armor in new series. Who knows

    The characters personalities seem different enough as it is, now the looks changing too? To me the comic seems barely motu other than in name.

    I don't think we need more He-Man variants. If it's just for the comic, then it's fine. But I don't want this new He-Man variant as an action figure.

    It's DC so I'm sure his look will depend a lot on the artist or writer and if enough fans complain they'll change it (like Power Girl). Personally my first instinct is dislike. It looks like Adam wearing Iron Man armor. But who knows, after I see more of it or other artists' interpretations it may start to grow on me.

    There's absolutely nothing cohesive about the design--well, really, there is no design, and that's the problem. It's a mish-mosh of too many different things that are just tossed together, not built together.

    And I do NOT like their "justification" of it being the armor of his ancestors. He-Man's armor has always looked a bit ancient, and that was good enough for HIM. While his allies and enemies needed to tech up to keep up with the times, he had The Power so his old stuff worked just fine.
