There were two He-Man theatrical movies. One was the live action Masters of the Universe we all know (and reviewed by my RU colleague The Blockbuster Chick) and the second was the animated film The Secret of the Sword, which also served as the first five episodes of She-Ra’s cartoon. To celebrate theaters had a comic book which pretty much spoiled the big reveal and at least half of the movie. While I didn’t get to see the film in theaters, I was lucky enough to win one through a local TV contest (I forget if it was a call-in or something on their kids show). Although this image doesn’t come from my personal collection I still own it and still count it for this week’s fight and the obligatory MOTU mini-comic entry for this tournament.

BONUS MUSIC VIDEO!
Is it weird to anyone else that this song sounds oddly romantic for a song about siblings? Forget the gay jokes, why aren’t there any incest jokes coming from this? Darn it, internet, can’t you get anything right, even when it’s wrong?
