Too weird for Masters Of The Universe

Via Rose Bailey, who has been thinking about a kid-friendly fantasy superhero setting:

The original mini-comics that came with the Masters Of The Universe toys, before the first cartoon, are going to be re-released in a single book. And they have some pretty weird stuff in them, even by the standards of a setting built out of gimmicks for action figures before anyone decided it needed a plot. Example: the many-armed giant god who lives in the centre of the planet and holds the continents in place from below. And who never got a figure until 2012. I particularly like how casual He-Man is about the whole thing.

There’s a lot to be said for a setting that can take that sort of thing being dropped in for the sake of one adventure...
