He-Man

He-Man is the main hero of the Masters of the Universe series, which span across comic books, an animated television series, and a feature film. He must protect his home of Etheria and the secrets of the Castle Greyskull from the wicked Skeletor. His powers include super strength and impressive fighting skills with his sword and battle axe. His famous battle cry is “For the honor of Greyskull!” as now said by She-Ra in the 2018 series. This guide includes costumes for both He-Man and his normal identity, Prince Adam (who you might recognize from the viral Youtube meme “What’s Up/What’s Going On”).

Skeletor

In Masters of the Universe, Skeletor is the arch-nemesis of He-Man, as well as She-Ra on occasion, who wishes to conquer Castle Grayskull and the rest of Eternia. Even though he is a skeleton, his body is actually totally jacked. Fortunately for you and me, the muscles come with the suit.

Orko
