DC redesigned He-Man, and holy Orko does he look terrible

I've been informed by my bosses at io9 that an article consisting of nothing but the vilest profanity I can think of is inappropriate for some reason, so let me only state the facts: For issue #4 of their Masters of the Universe comic, DC has redesigned He-Man's iconic look. Care to check it out?


Maybe you like it! But maybe you don't. Maybe you're not sure why DC would bother to change a design that has worked just fine for the last 30+ years! Maybe you think the character looks like he was drawn by a misguided teenager who got drunk off his step-mother's Smirnoff Ices while overdosing on Jim Lee's overcomplicated, overdesigned New 52 costumes, and then the drawing was sat on by an elephant with violent diarrhea! I don't know what you think! We all have opinions, don't we! For instance, someone at DC said, "You know what would be great? If we made He-Man look like a generic, 3rd-tier DC superhero!" And that person had the authority to make it happen! How lucky is that! Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go drink myself to death.
