I grew up in the 80s. It was hard not to know about He Man and the masters of the Universe. Especially considering the appeal the show had to my best friend/cousin. We frequently played He Man and I was, unfortunately relegated to a lot of being saved (Teela was not a huge part of the show, in the version we played—until She-Ra came around and then, I was a force to be reckoned with. I even remember Barbie magazine having a feature on the Masters of the Universe movie that I made clear to my parents I just HAD to see.
So when I saw DC Universe vs Masters of the Universe at my local bookstore, I just HAD to pick it up—and thankfully, it was everything I had hoped for and more. When some mysterious characters from the Masters of the Universe universe show up on present Day Earth, and end up KILLING Superman, members of the Justice League decide to take matters into their own hands—so when another group of Eternians shows up, they are in trouble.
Batman does his best detective work to determine what is happening to the rest of the JLA (who seem magically bent on revenge), while working with John Constantine and the Justice League Dark to figure out how to bring the normal back to Earth. He-Man must work with his mother, an Earth woman exiled by Skeletor to Earth, and trust his advisors working with the JLA to fix the issue. As it turns out, what is first thought to be a power play from Skeletor ends up being the work of a once-beloved member of He-Man’s inner circle. Can Batman find out what’s going on behind the scenes of Superman’s death and get the two groups to fight for the cause?
With a creative team including Keith Giffen, Tony Bedardm Dexter Soy and Pop Mhan, DC Universe vs. Masters of the Universe features a great story, solid art and beautiful coloring. I really enjoyed reading this—and I cannot recommend this enough to fans of the DC Universe whom may have grown up watching He-Man as a kid.
