Masters of Universes

May 11, 2011

I like He-Man as much as any kid (even though I wasn’t allowed to watch it for some reason).  I used to watch it over at my friend Rex’s house.  Along with Raiders of the Lost Ark.  But what strikes me about He-Man is how flat-out weird some of the characters were. Such as:

– Meka-Nek- Just a dude with a cybernetic extending neck.

– Skunkor- A bad guy who was a skunk. And who ensured that the good guys always smelled the bad guys coming.

– Moss Man- A green plant moss-covered guy.  The action figured had fur and pine scent.  But you have to wonder.  Was he just Rock Man before the moss grew on him?

– Fisto- A guy with a big metal hand. Not so weird until you think about how dirty his name sounds.
