Check Out He-Man's New Look

After all these years he finally puts on some more clothes.

DC has brought He-Man back in comic book form. The current HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE series is being written by Keith Giffen and Pop Mhan is doing the art. Things aren't looking too good for He-Man as he is about to come face to face with Hordak. But it does look like He-Man is finally getting a new wardrobe.

DC has revealed the cover to the fourth issue, on sale July 17, drawn by Ed Benes. It's a bold move to redesign his look after all these years but you have to admit it is about time.

We might not be getting a completely clear look at his new outfit but what do you think based on this cover?

He looks like a superhero or something.. Let me guess a Jim Lee New 52 concept?

Posted by frozenedge

It's about time He-Man discovered theres a thing called pants in Eternia

Posted by Darkmount1

Not the first time--anyone remember "The New Adventures of He-Man"?

Posted by FlashDamn

Awesome

Posted by Bobsjonjon

What?... No tight fur undies? This is so gay !

Posted by JamDamage

@drunkengoon: It can't be a Jim Lee concept, then he'd have a pop collar too and some un needed grooves in his design

Posted by AweSam

Pink and purple are very manly colors.

This is an improvement. He Man's previous "disguise" was to pull on pants and a t shirt.

Posted by animehunter

I like it, Can't wait to see what the come up with for She-ra, not that her old look wasn't good

@crash_recovery: Superman put on clothes and glasses. Fictional people are stupid, they never see the obvious.

i find myself surprised to say this but i'm really looking forward to this series

Edited by ccraft

This looks stupid, his armor doesn't look anything like barbarian armor. Looks like Jim Lee design

Very lame redesign also like the old series better.

Posted by Akindoodle

Should've gone with the Stjepan Sejic design. See? Classic and not bare legged but still showing off muscle. Skeletor's looking positively evil too

Edited by Samimista

Loving the new design!

Posted by Hel

@akindoodle:

Absolutley. Looks great and timeless compared to the (really) old design and the new one

Posted by LaserLambert

Great another character putting more clothes on... Guess if you disagree with this modern design choice you'll be called gay. oh well.

Edited by greenenvy

Nope I don't think he needs change because he is iconic the other way around period. Barbarian warriors and mythical heroes especially Greek amazons (like Wonder woman) should show skin because it symbolizes heroic nudity. I am getting sick and tired of this modernized trend of more pants and armor or modesty for characters that where meant to be naked like because that is how a mythical hero should be portrayed.

Love it.

Posted by blkson

He looks good. I like the new design.

Edited by Smart_Dork_Dude

This is an improvement. Yes an improvement. I have a hard time taking Namor seriously when he's in his green speedo, so while I absolutely love He-Man I've had the same problem. Really if they turned the fur, whatever it was supposed to be, into a kilt or something? Yeah I could have bought it better as a barbarian styled outfit. Now this new one is great!! Maybe a little too tech looking with the leggings, but that's just a small complaint

Posted by Black_Claw

At least now the gay jokes should die down. Right?

Hmm...I'm actually digging the new look! :)

Posted by vPuik

It's going to take me bit to get used to all the changes they've made. I loved the Image version 10 years ago and this new one might grow on me.

Posted by Ciriel

He looks like he's related to Aquaman, but hmmm revived He-Man, my girlfriend's dad will love this

Posted by Miss_Garrick

While I'm usually all for people covering up as much of their body as possible, this time I don't like it. He-Man and She-Ra's look must always stay the same!

Pop Mhan has given He-Man clothes. He-Man is free!

Posted by TheHeat

It's not He-Man if he is not wearing a St. George's Cross on his chest.

Posted by StMichalofWilson

Oh. My. God. He-Man has pants!!!
