MOTUSometimes referred to as “He-Man” because he’s the main hero in the “Masters of the Universe” (MOTU) franchise, He-Man is a wandering barbarian on Eternia, a planet dealing with the aftermath of a war that has devastated the civilization that once reigned.

Although there is a large cast of characters, the story primarily revolves around the conflict between our hero (He Man) and the bad guy, the evil Skeletor.

Rumor has it that the “Conan the Barbarian” film was the inspiration for the He-Man character, although Roger Sweet, who is purported to have created He-Man disputes that — saying that the created the character before the Conan movie was even released.  Guess that will have to remain a mystery for the ages.

In the meantime, if you’re looking to go cosplay, here are a few Masters of the Universe costumes to get you started.
