I think that Filmation should have had a scene like this, since a lot of people make gay jokes about He-Man

Where did petrifying ships come from? I don't remember that.

I hope you don't mind but is there a way you could post a bigger version of this scene?
ComicBookArtFiend Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2014
This feels like a scene right from a classic Errol Flynn movie, which is perfect, since there's so much of that in Adam/He-Man already. (In addition to all the Superman, King Arthur, Luke Skywalker, and Conan influences, of course.) And it would be a perfect scene to incorporate into an actual He-Man movie just before the big finale.

Come to think of it, there's so much mythology to He-Man that you could easily get a series of four or five movies out of it. Done right, this franchise could easily be a new LOTR.

Gack!! Not Teela! Should have drawn him with Frosta instead.
EDIT: posted by mistake
orko09 Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2014
He-Man doesn't love Frosta. In the only Filmation episode, he rejected her advances multiple times. At the contrary He-Man admitted his feelings for Teela a lot of times during the MOTU series, and the last episode ended with him carrying Teela to the sunrise. At the beginning of the sequel of MOTU, Son Of He-Man that never aired back at the 80's, him and Teela got married, and she became his queen. In the most recent incarnation of He-Man, the DC comics, He-Man and Teela are together. So the artist make the right choise!

Uggh... first of all I didn't say anything about what Filmation showed us -- but if you want to go down that path then we can. First of all lets get something straight -- The Filmation show we saw and the Filmation show that could have been is very different.

Teela on paper was interesting (which the DC writers made use of but instead ended up having a Marry Sue), but the one presented was the classical "fated heroine", the girl that the show has decided should end up with the protagonist yet they never make her even half as likeable as other later included females.

Only thing going for Teela is her hair color, something Adam/He-man seems to have a fetish for. Again check that episode with Frosta. He-man is practically heads over heels with Sweet Bee.

The episode with Frosta and Sweet Bee was very telling though. Not only did it show us that He-man has a thing for red-heads but also that he is a complete whimp when it comes to agressive women... something that is pretty ironic seeing as one of the first appearances of Adam in the comic showed us that he was a playboy that was usually accompanies with at least two prostirtutes at any given time. (No actually his father comments on this when he shows up with two such women at the start of one comic)

The first He-man in the comics was a very different character. He was NOT Adam but rather some barbarian guy living in a mud hut out in the wilderness. The Teela in that comic was a clone created from the goddess and unlike the later Teela, was actually shown to be very capable and strong.


My comment about Frosta however was more one of Frosta being a better match for He-man. In the one episode she interacted with He-man she managed to create a far more interesting dynamic that Teela managed to create in the entire Filmation show.


That said, there always were rumors that She-ra was meant to have been He-mans girlfriend (despite Filmation denying this). For instance listen to the song... So the whole Teela+He-man was never actually set in stone.
orko09 Featured By Owner Edited Feb 27, 2015
What dynamic Frosta and He-Man had? Frosta was sexually obsessed with He-Man, who has not a whimp at all, but obviously didn't like her and politely he refused her advances, but when he saw Frosta's delirious obsession continue, He-Man invented an interest about Sweet Bee, in order to leave him alone. There was no chemistry at all, except an unilateral interest from Frosta's part. Teela and He-Man on the other hand, they have A LOT more story together. In every incarnation of MOTU, their feelings for each other are pretty obvious:

From the mini comics:…
to the Filmation Cartoon:……
and later to the 200X series:…

Of course there is also the whole Son Of He-Man series, that i was referring before, that was supposed to be a sequel produced by Filmation and here is how the story would be:…

And more recently their relationship, became official canon, in both the new DC comic book series:…
where from the future solicitations it appears that Teela and He-Man, got married, and became King and Queen of Eternia:…

And the Classic canon that accompanies the new figures confirmed their marriage:…

So you may not like Teela, but her relationship with He-Man, was far more profound through the various stories and canons, than an occasional flirt in the Princess of Power, that never had any past or future.

As for She-Ra at the beginning being presented He-Man's girlfriend, it's a rumor, and it was only something that Filmation proposed. But He-Man is not Filmation's property, belongs to Mattel, and Mattel back then refused this idea, saying that He-Man's girlfriend is already Teela, since this was the direction that their relationship was taking through the comics and the cartoon, for this reason She-Ra turn to be his sister. So it was always intended, since the beginning to have He-Man and Teela together as a couple, and their relationship is now of the cornerstones of the modern MOTU mythos, as one of Mattel's Head writers recently stated in an interview, a couple of months ago:

"GP:  In the most recent issue, young Prince Adam and Teela are shown sharing their first kiss.  Is the dynamic between these two important to the series?

RD: Yeah, to the series and the whole franchise! Adam and Teela grew up together. They’re not just love interests, they’re best friends, soul mates. Their bond is at the heart of the whole story."

There's also the early minicomics and coloring books, where He-Man (prior to being codified as Prince Adam) and Teela had a flirtation going. And even though the 1987 movie didn't spell out that Adam/He-Man and Teela were an item, she clearly didn't like seeing him around other women (her jealousy when first meeting the Courtney Cox character is pretty blatant). This isn't like Superman, where the designated female lead is a terrible human being and any relationship with her is deeply suspect. MOTU always had He-Man/Teela as an undercurrent and depicted Teela as a likable character you wouldn't--or rather--shouldn't--mind the hero being with.

And on a personal note, the PRINCESS OF POWER supporting characters never made an impression on me. So for me, Frosta, and all of She-Ra's sidekicks, are pretty much nonessential. You could port Adora/She-Ra over to the regular MOTU series proper and lose nothing of value.
HerpingTheDerp Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2015
The movie was terrible, from what I heard it was actually meant to have taken place on Etheria and She-ra was supposed to have been in it.

Teela was always annoying and boring. In the comic she was just a "hang-on" for He-man and in the Filmation show she was a joke. Ironically, female characters that randomly showed up for one or two episodes were always far more likeable and interesting than Teela... and don't get me started ion the train-wreck Marry Sue that DC wrote up. Only thing good about that Teela was her boobs.

No, the only likeable Teela was the one from the 200X show because her character flaws were part of her being a teenager. She could actually fight, she had a personality... and Adam was such a little twerp that Teela being on his case was actually logical.
orko09 Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2015
No, the movie was supposed to be on Eternia, it was called Masters of the Universe afterall, not Princess of Power, but because of the low budget a big part of the plot has taken place on Earth. As for She-Ra, there was only a piece of concept art, nothing more, probably as part of possible sequel plans. There wasn't a sign of Hordak or anything Etheria related on the script or as a concept. Besides the movie is based on the mini comic Barbarian He-Man, not the Filmation one, so no twin sister in this case.

As for Teela, you find a girl that was raised by a battle hardened veteran without a mother, without knowing nothing for her past, that struggled to find the truth of her origins, while her mother was always in front of her, and that she succeeded, even with all this weight on her shoulders, to become the youngest Captain of the Guard, in the Eternian history, and later the legendary Warrior Goddess, boring? For me this is a remarkable woman, a lot more than a certain high drama ice queen.

Very epic, cinematic shot. Sweeping, widescreen landscape? Check. Dramatic lens flare from the sun? Check. Big horde of sinister-but-cool bad guy spaceships filling the sky? Check. Hot, badass hero and hot, badass heroine in a hot embrace? Check. Me likey.

Question/minor gripe: is the image supposed to be 600 x 343 pixels? (That's all I get on my Web browser.) It's a great pic, it just seems a little small compared to many others that you've posted here.

BTW, I really like all your visual interpretations of the MOTU setting and characters. Cheers!

I watched He-Man years ago as a teenager, and thought it to be something dorky and stupid that I would watch till something cool like Robotech would start.  With this gallery you have taken my poor paradigm and blown it into a million pieces.   

Which wouldn't be so bad, except for your rather gleeful giggling.....

Aren't they brother and sister?
orko09 Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2013
This is Teela the Captain of the Royal Guard, He-Man's girlfriend and his future wife and queen. His twin sister is She-Ra/Princess Adora and she is blond, not redhead.
Old-Marcie1234 Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2013
Oh, thank god! Teela still sounds like She-ra, though.
orko09 Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2013
They sound similar yes, but considering that Eternia is a barbaric world, having complicated names would be a privilege for them.
