@lvenger: yeah....the new 52 Superman like I said is a headstrong idiot who rushes headfirst into battles where he knows nothing about his opponent....him believing that it's just a normal sword and thinking that it was going to break on him is pretty understandable....he even mumbles "H-how?" when it happens...if it hadn't been for that he clearly would have won the fight...He-man's durability was helping him out but he probably wouldn't have lasted that much longer had he not gotten lucky with Superman's vulnerability to magic
The thing is there is a limit to supermans power....somewhat. And he was using it in the battle. His Heat Vision can burn up alot of the solar energy Supes stores in his body and using it too long would weaken him over time. I agree that Superman would have one the fight in terms of blows. but you stole the words right from my mouth.
In terms of story this is only issue 2. Im sure this was a ploy by skeletor to either kill he-man or force him to become a fugitive to the law enforcements of the planet. But still a great issue. mind you id have gone a whole other route with Skeletors redesign though....Blarg!
