I really dug the idea that if you really wanted to substitute He-Man for Orion, Skeletor for Darkseid, the Sorceress for Highfather, Castle Greyskull for the Source, etc. the movie would still be fundamentally the same.
Plus, the scene late film where Lundgren yells "I have the power!" is so over the top and ridicuously epic.
It was the first movie I ever saw at the cinema, and even when I watched it again recently, I still found myself loving it. I don't care that it wasn't like the Filmation cartoon (which I also loved); it's just too much fun.
Neither has superman. Nearly every incarnation of superman is as strong as the plot demands. That's how he goes from pulling moons with help to lift a book that contained the multiverse itself with help. Its called no limit fallacy. That's good enough for me.
Superman beat Thor, got attacked by Avengers and still got up by the same time thor did. Maybe I should've said Dreamwar, written by Giffen.
You said they should make a live action movie, when there is one. Forgive my confusion. I'll turn on my internet telepathy next time.
Dreamwar wasn't canon for DC characters. They were creations of a reality warper that made the Doctor look like he was playing tiddly-winks. I've seen the "he modeled them after the characters as closely as possible" argument, and that's true, for what it is. But it's also still a kid imagining stuff. Would you consider the dream-induced hallucinations of a 14-year-old KMC poster canon to a character? Also, Majestic doesn't have a rabid fan army. My earlier comments about the big guys in respective universes and crossovers stand. Is it possible HM gets the same treatment? Sure, anything's possible. Is it likely? Search yourself, young Skywalker, you know the truth. And the Thor stuff still doesn't disagree with anything I've said. I'm really not sure that we're even having the same conversation here.
Also, lulz at "that's good enough for me," as if that matters in the slightest. I'm trying to have a conversation, and you're trying to win some imaginary war because you think I slighted your fan crush. A case could be made that HM is as strong as Superman, or slightly greater than depending on incarnation and need. Not proof, but a case. And two, Superman should win in a fight. Do you disagree with either of those? It sounds like you don't. Then wtf are you trying to prove?
Thanks. I doubt I ever will, especially in the vs. forum where I've been "gone" much longer than even my KMC activity would suggest. That forum has annoyed me probably for longer than it hasn't in my near-decade on KMC. But I enjoy popping in.
