First up, as the image above suggests, comic-book He-Man – in his new cut-off Iron Man costume – will be taking on the Justice League when Skeletor finds himself on Earth and presumably gets the heroes to fight each other rather than the skull-faced demon behind the curtain.
He-man and Superman have met before waaaay back in the day – and at that time, Supes was vulnerable to He-Man’s powers because of his overall weakness to magic. We’ll see if that happens again.

Mattycollector.com, Mattel’s been pissing off (or pissing on, depending who you ask) collectors by putting up an unannounced “Spirit of Hordak” figure for sale, and saying he’ll appear at random times in the future – apparently they need site traffic that badly that they’re incentivising fans to check constantly now.
For those who’ve been wondering since last Comic-Con who the white crossbow would come with, now you know.

Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
