    Yeah, that was my impression from the first 5 episodes of Revelation. I personally love the Keldor origin story, but in the MOTU multiverse I'm fine with this particular iteration not going that route. I hope the more kid friendly CGI show picks Keldor back up and does his story justice again.

    To my understanding it was because it isn't trademarkable while the stylized HM they've been using since 1984 and almost all his figures in Vintage used it or a variation like the Superman S shield.

    I'm missing a lot in missing this series. I can't find this locally, I hope a trade paperback is immediately released after this.
    Thanks @Tallstar for the update.
    By the power of Grayskull!!!!

    Coming this Wed... nice. Hopefully I can read a copy by this weekend.

    The preview pages are interesting... I prefer a Lyn who always had white/platinum blonde hair her whole life. Maybe going from yellow blonde to white will serve a story purpose.

    We'll see how this goes.

    I read the issue and it was pretty decent. I did notice that I had to put aside my own head cannon for Lyn's origins (mostly influenced by 200X) to get into the story. But once I stepped out of my own way, I did enjoy this issue... as much or more than the first issue.

    I also think another thing that held me back is my conflicting thoughts on the second issue. That one still kinda irks me. But I'm glad we're back on track with this issue and I look forward to issue four next month!

    I read it. I am following this entire stage of Revelation, but I know that in time I will forget it. 200x is my favorite MOTU version

    This is a good issue... still a little too dark for my liking, but fits the narrative being told.

    Also, this issue had some stand out moments, like:

     
    Skeletor: "Evasion is one of my unique talents."
    Beast Man: "You mean retreat?"

    And

    Lyn: "Are they dead?"
    Skeletor: "Do you care?"


    And, it was cool
     
    seeing Dragstor, Blade, and Saurod thrown into the Revelation mix.

    What even is the point of this “prequel” ? It has nothing to do with revelations so far, 3 issues of filler and retelling origins stories that were completely unnecessary for what we got in the Revelations storyline.

    Obviously the only thing to happen of any consequence will be skeletor uncovering what/where the secret of GS is and this was explained enough in the first episode of the show to not need this at all.

    What an absolute waste of an opportunity to actually tell a story.

    It must be the end times I FINALLY agree with you
    This mini series while it started out strong has turned into the whole issues of what's the point? Two origin issues and both going against the better versions of what's out there. Issue 4 has one hell of a mountain to climb bring this back around right now they could have told this story in 2 issues easy. It's the problem with modern comics these days. It should not take an entire issue to walk down the street.

    Wasn’t the point of Revelation to not tell you everything you know about MOTU is wrong?

    I also like what they did with...

     
    Magestra and the resulting implications of why this name is being used for disguises of deceit.

    It’s fan service and it leads into Skeletor discovering the secret of Grayskull. Sometimes something is just fun. I’ve enjoyed it immensely for setting up a world closer to the mini comics I loved as a kid than the Filmation series. It’s also a lot darker. Those people taking Lyn in were some pretty evil **** roaches.

    This latest issue was the first one leaving me kinda "meh", which is a bummer. When it comes to certain characters, for me personally, I think less is more and I suppose this particular story revealed something about myself I never knew... and that's that I never really wanted to know Evil-Lyn's origins

    Anybody else having trouble opening the dedicated issue 3 thread? It just leads to a blank page for me.

    Other than that, gotta echo that 3 was pretty meh. Art war pretty though. If it is all backstories I hope they do Dorceress and Teela. Or Duncan and Teela. For the last 2.
