I feel like I saw a few 'gently caress you Netflix' about this before when I was first reading through the thread

I hope we see something with some guys getting in on that soon. With other guys, I mean. Not Catra and Adora.

Netflix already has two He-Man things lined up, so a third would probably be overkill. Even if it would likely be the best of them.

At this point the only He-Man I want is the desperate rear guard action against Horde Prime, fighting to get this infant child to a specific location so she can be portaled to safety.

Yeah I know I'd have a much better relationship with my sexuality now if I'd had a single positive and healthy example of a gay romance growing up, instead of endless amounts of casual homophobia.

Make he man and skeletor kiss, is what I'm saying. "Don't you get it Adam? I love you, I always have, ha ha ha ha!"

The only time Skeletor ever truly feels love is when Double Trouble invades his army and pretends to be a minion who is almost one to one a reflection of himself. poo poo goes south however after Skeletor finally promotes him above all other minions to his right hand and realizes that he hates the sound of his own laugh.

I would have loved to have seen Skeletor as a disconnected Horde Prime clone who went completely native, embraced magic, and tried to conquer Eternia in his own name.

It's also being done by Marc Bernardin, who seems to be a far more talented writer and have less prediliction for toilet humor. Which is about the only reason I'm excited for it.

That aside, while I saw some He-Man growing up, it was never something I was particularly fond of by any stretch, so contrary to popular opinion I'm not all that bothered that Skeletor have a given laugh or personality. All I care is that he be able to dance. If He-Man and Skeletor go dirty dancing, then all the better. Bonus points if that little kid follows Skeletor at some point, just to smug it up at He-Man.

I was still on the Catra is irredeemable train until she was able to finally admit to herself and us that she loved Adora, and then I was "She better survive so they can kiss!".

It was hard seeing Scorpia and Myrmista evil.

Having Horde Prime being like Mr Sinister, who lives in a palace full of clones of himself was great, and super creepy. But Wrong Hordak and actual Hordak made it, which Entrapta is going to be happy about.

Talk shit, get bzzzt.

I wish we could list as many fellow x gentlemen kisses as we could lesbian ones itt. I worry a lot that media will only ever show the least possible amount of queerness and how it skews perceptions on acceptability. It's no secret that to a cisgender-hetrosexual audience that men kissing is more likely to get the 'phobes out than not.

Part of me wished that the 2011 ThunderCats series could be folded into this if only because I thought that show deserved a second chance and the techno fantasy stuff could mesh.

That show had a sad story. Came out of the gate hot, but then got shuffled around at random, got a weak toyline and was part of CN's move away from action shows.

Yea, Seahawk and Bow not ending up together was a missed opportunity. I mean they could have at least had a one night stand that both were cool about.

Rae Geiger has been answering questions on their Tumblr page about She-Ra and explained that they and another artist were responsible for Scorpia/Perfuma, originally as a cute joke. One of the things they designed was a theoretical Scorpia/Perfuma baby and look at this.

Yeah. Cause the one thing you want to tie to a heavily non-het show is a little bit of cradle robbing.

The show has a real problem with not making anyone's ages clear at all, which would be fine if they were all the same age, but they're not. Entrapta is in her late 20s, Sea Hawk and Mermista are mid 20s I think, and Netossa and Spinnerella are old enough to be married and have been part of the previous Princess Alliance. All while Catra, Glimmer, Adora, and Bow are actual teenagers. Frosta is the only princess visibly younger than anyone else.
