Get Ready for DC UNIVERSE VS THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE

Will He-Man have the power to be the MASTER of the DCU as well?

I never thought I'd see this actually happen.

There have been random He-Man/DCU action figure two-packs. They've always caught my eye and made me briefly wonder how the confrontations would actually play out. Now we will get to find out.

DC Comics has announced this summer the heroes of the DCU will be facing off against He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.

You might ask what and why but does it really matter? This is going to be something to see.

The six-issue miniseries will be written by Keith Giffen with art by Dexter Soy. There is a story here. After barely escaping from his last battle with He-Man, Skeletor has run off to the most unexpected realm in order to recover and catch his breath - EARTH. Once he gets there he starts to siphon off Earth's core magic. This obviously won't go unnoticed. He-Man forms an unlikely hunting party and sets of in search of Skeletor. Of course this will put him up against the heroes of the DC Universe. Eventually they will all need to figure out how to put a stop to Skeletor and his mysterious new master.

The cover art is by Ed Benes and DC UNIVERSE VS HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE #1 is on sale August 28.

SO unexpected, but I am totally in. Between this and the Green Lantern solicits, DC can have all of my monies. ALL OF THEM.

I'm clueless about He-Man but why would he fight other heroes instead of just teaming up with them right away?

Buying this. Too good to pass up.

So is He-Man a new 52 character now, existing on another planet, or is this the equivalent of a Marvel/DC mashup?

Edited by mattydeNero

THIS LOOKS SO BURNT! I will buy this just because. Fantastic news.

No the first time He-man has encountered the DC Universe, this should be good

It's equivalent of a Marvel/DC mashup.

Why do any heroes fight each other? Have you never read a Marvel book? It's because they don't understand each other. Then they come to a mutual understanding and fight a greater threat. It's like Cowboys vs Aliens or pretty much any movie like that.

This wont be the first time they crossed over. I remember in the past Metron and Superman came across He-Man on his world. IIRC I believe that wasn't the first one either. I hope this story isn't going to be canon. It might be interesting.

Edited by nappystr8

This is not for me, but seems decent enough. I have to wonder though, certainly they could have come up with a better name for this miniseries. And when did Teela become a red-head again? She was blonde in DC's first He-Man mini.

PLEASE let Joker kill Orco.

lol ,Skeletor and Joker team up , that's the best idea I have ever heard.

Edited by ccraft

The story intrigues me.

I've always liked Skeletor, mostly that his face is a green skull. He looks cool!

Edited by jwalser3

Hell yeah!

But will this be canon? Non the less it'll be awesome.

Posted by Lvenger

Unexpected news for me today but this is interesting. I doubt it will be canon given that Hal is present. Or it could take place in the past. In any case this does look tempting.

wait..........WHAT?!

Posted by jorgeareizaga

I love when Superman´s crotch is kicked, He-man humilliate his groin!!

Posted by The Stegman

Eh...I don't really care for the He Man mythos..I might read the trade...in a library.

Edited by Baberaham_Lincoln

Guys should go out there and actually by the current ongoing He-man book, support that!!!! i don't want it to get cancelled... and it's so much fun to read as well.

Edited by Jayso4201

Fan of the current series, but this kinda looks lame.

Edited by SmashBrawler

Well... can't say I saw this coming.

Hmmmm!

Magic. 5 non-magical characters vs 5 magic characters. Magic affects every non-magical character the same, so the DC heroes could have that as a sort of weakness.

Holy shit when did this happen

Looks Cool

Why is it not? He-Man has moved planets before

Edited by RoTheKid

Hmmm.....I think I will be checking this out. :)

Posted by Vaeternus

Nice, can't wait to see Clark bash in He-Man's head! He-Man is cool though. I'll get this no doubt

Posted by KnightRise

For the love of everything, please have them comment on eachother's new appearences. That'd be comic comedy gold!

Edited by Ganthetsward20

DEXTER SOY?!?! I love his art, and in a book like this it will look so friggin awesome!!

Posted by LordRequiem

Skeletor has a master, really? Some villain he is. I don't know much about He-Man and his group of goons but I'd imagine the Justice league would batter them.

Posted by RoseFairchild

@thejokerha: Orko's not in this series, apparently he betrayed the Masters to Skeletor and got sent to his home dimension or something.

Posted by Vincie_Pooh

Battle Cat vs. Krypto!
And I wonder who Batman will go up with...

Posted by ARMIV2

Woooooooaaaaaah! This is like...out there!

Edited by RedQueen

Dexter Soy's art is awesome - I'll definitely be checking this out.
