DC’s INJUSTICE Comic Will Cross Over with HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE

DC’s INJUSTICE Comic Will Cross Over with HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE

The Injustice 2 video game has already opened the door with crossover characters from Mortal Kombat and special guest stars like Hellboy and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Now, DC’s dark alternate world is about to welcome a new pantheon of characters from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.

Via DCComics.com, DC and Mattel jointly announced the Injustice vs. He-Man and the Masters of the Universe six-issue miniseries by writer Tim Seeley and artist Freddie E. Williams II. The setup for the story places He-Man and the Masters in a situation that fans of Injustice should find similar. Eternia has been overthrown by a robotic impostor, but when He-Man takes back the throne, the people decide they liked the impostor better.

From there, He-Man and his allies will answer an inter-dimensional call from Batman, who wants their aid in overthrowing the corrupted Superman and his regime. While the first cover image by Williams features Orko, Teela, and Battle Cat standing side-by-side with Batman and the more heroic Harley Quinn, don’t expect He-Man’s villains to sit this one out. Where He-Man goes, Skeletor and his minions can’t be far behind.

Could this lead to characters from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe joining the ranks of the Injustice 2 video game? While there haven’t been any concrete indications of plans to add additional fighters, we wouldn’t rule it out. It could be a lot of fun to see He-Man vs. Superman in a fighting game. After all, it’s easy to forget that one of He-Man’s first appearances in comics was a crossover story in 1982 with the Man of Steel.

Injustice vs. He-Man and the Masters of the Universe #1 will debut on DC’s digital platforms on July 18, with a print edition likely to follow later this year.
