Comic I Read: DC Universe vs. He-Man: Entire Series
Plot: He-Man must save Superman while Skeletor holds back all of Earth’s heroes that have been controlled by Orko.
Review: So here we are at the end and I got to say, after all the thing I hated about what DC is doing to He-Man, this series turned out ALL RIGHT! I mean really all I wanted was a fun series that had He-Man and Superman kicking ass together and I got that for 2 issues. Out of six, which sounds bad but compared to the main series that is outstanding.
It still feels like DC is trying to be more epic than it needed. I mean the reason we got this is to have He-Man and DC characters team up and a lot of the time, they feel like just background characters. Not to mention Superman is killed or whatever in Issue 2 so we miss the team up of He-Man until the end. I wish we could have had cool scenes with batman/man-at-arms, mossman/swamp thing, teela/wonder woman. There were so MANY cool things that DC just kind of dropped the ball on.
So it becomes just another generic story without anything cool that really justifies the event.
But that first issue and that last issue? Both my and 8 year old me’s dream came true. If only for a brief time.
