So I watched and loved the new She-ra on Netflix, and that made me interested in how all of this came about. He-man is a bit strange in that unlike most superheroes, the toy came first and then came all the mythology & the storyline around it. But the story definitely appealed to kids: it still has one of those phrases I’ll never forget from when I was a kid: “By the power of Grayskull! I have the power!”
So it’s interesting to learn how the character was crafted and built, and what was good, and what went wrong in He-man history. Watch: Power of Grayskull on Netflix.
