    Okay media outlets are being too positive about this. That makes me nervous because a character like He-Man should annoy critics to no end and when it doesn't it makes me think that they know something we don't.

    Also a tweet of Kevin Smith's has surfaced where he flat out says he wasn't a He-Man which flees in the face of previous comments he made about being a fan.

    That probably means he was a closeted He-Man fan.

    From reading the plot synopsis it doesn't seem like this show will actually be about He-Man. Teela will be the focus character having her track down the power sword.

    I think He-Man will still be the central character, he just might take a backseat for the supporting cast until the tail-end for the final battle.

    So...it's a bait and switch and the trailer footage is probably all from the first episode It really might be a stealth Teela show.

    I think losing the sword means he gets stuck in Prince Adam mode. Smith said a big part of the series would involve how Prince Adam being He Man is a secret

    I don't think this look s bad at all. Now if some of the rumors are true and He Man is barely in this and Tella becomes the headliner this show is really going to come off as a big old bait and switch to a lot of fans, and get slaughtered by the internet.

    I mean realistically, Teela would (and should) be the most pissed about Adam not trusting her with his secret.

    Not a He-Man fan doesn't mean he wasn't a "Masters of the Universe" fan. If he was like me, He-Man was probably my least favorite character, I watched for the supporting cast.

    You're being paranoid.

    Isn't the name of the show Masters of the Universe not He-Man?

    Yup. Not having a character title opens up the series to not be about He-Man.
