MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE: REVELATION Comic Fills in the Gaps

Master of the Universe: Revelation is very nearly upon us. The upcoming Netflix animated series is a more grown-up continuation of the classic ’80s Filmation cartoon. It features He-Man along with all his original friends and foes. But what exactly happened between the events of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and this new series? This is where Dark Horse Comics is stepping in.

 In their new comic book mini-series, writers Kevin Smith, Rob David, and Tim Sheridan, along with artist Mindy Lee, fill in the gaps in the Eternian timeline. You can check out a preview of the first issue of Masters of the Universe: Revelation, as well as a series synopsis, right here:

“Following a vicious Orlax attack on his father King Randor, He-Man learns of the creature’s link to the origin of the sword of power. To save Randor and put an end to the chaos, He-Man embarks on an epic journey that pits him against his longtime foes Skeletor and Evil-Lyn. And he sees Teela take the reins of a powerful legacy.”

The first page from Dark Horse Comics' Masters of the Universe: Revelation feature's He-Man's parents, King Randor and Queen Marlena.

As fans of the classic cartoon and toyline know, Teela has quite a legacy indeed. She is the secret daughter of the Sorceress of Castle Grayskull. But raised by Man-at-Arms. So her powerful legacy could refer to a lot of things. In the new Netlfix series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Sarah Michelle Gellar voices Teela. So we expect big things for He-Man’s best friend.  We just hope she finally gets to wear that cool snake armor that the action figure came with. One that the old cartoon never had her wear.
