Eh, I gotta disagree. In the cartoon, because the writers are forced too, I know it, Skeletor and his warriors are severely underpowered (as are the Snake Men) and never seem to have a chance against the rather big roster heavy Masters. You say Evil Lyn can take out an entire army and that's out of balance? Hell, look at He-Man and Zodak! That's what they can too and that's not out of balance for our favorite villians?Originally posted by Frankos
But the thing *I* really disliked was the evil lyn spell at the end. WTF???!!! Suddenly she can tear apart an entire army with one spell??? Talk about out of balance! Between this and skeletors instant teleportation spell we are really entering cheeseball territory with the magic, I hope this trend does not continue.
He-Man and Zodak are super powerful and can very well stand on their own against Skeletor and his warriors and the Snake Men. Syclone is pretty powerful himself, Roboto too as could be Orko if given the chance. Magic is a great weapon. Hence Evil Lyn. The good guys always win. It's great now that the bad guys are can be super powerful as well.
I love the comic because well, it is basically for us fans. A chance for really cool stories. The fact that Skeletor can now teleport (a great heads up and nod to the old series) and Evil Lyn firing off that uber spell is actually really cool. Our favorite villians are showing more power and strength over the Masters, showing us that they too can stand on their own when need be.
No way is that cheese territory. And why do you think it is cheese territory? The whole concept and idea behind MOTU is being a story about science fiction and fantasy. Magic is definately fantasy. So is Zodak and He-Man cheese? Evil Lyn is character with magic, and powerful magic at that too like He-Man and Zodak.
