If I ever do get around to actually doing something about my long-pined for, but languishing Masters of the Universe setting ideas for Marvel Supes, I've found a few places to go for creative ebullience. My original thought was to go all Kirby-esque (which still greatly appeals to me) but I can't help but consider these dark and wild aesthetics:
Following that train of thought, here's a nifty take on the Sorceress, sort of like Marvel's Eternity meets Nefertiti:
Next are a few Skelator concepts, I apologize I'm not sure who the illustrators are:
Or maybe we pump Skely up so he can stand big toe-to-big-toe with He-man...
This cover by Mike Hoffman, for me, defines Evil-Lyn. She should totally be a slinky, remorseless space sorceress. And is that Skelator in the corner? Et tu Brute!
And perhaps Teela became the Serpent Goddess from doing away with the last one:
Doesn't seem quite sci-fi enough, hmm...
MoTU needs more ladies and I like the idea of swapping roles. I give you Duncanna, Lady-At-Arms:
Merman on the other hand can only go one direction--slimy:
Actually, I rather like the Monster Squad rendition:
Can't quite picture He-Man yet. I want something more sci-fi. Blonde Conan isn't quite enough. I'm going to have to go with the original space barbarian:
There's plenty more in the Frazetta tribute I did. A few that I think put me in the right frame-of-mind. These guys make for great snakemen and He-Man in a space helmet with a ray gun would be pretty nifty:
Just some thoughts....
