Hero Overview

By the Power of Grayskull! I have the power!
~ He-Man's most famous quote

He-Man is the main protagonist of the Masters of the Universe franchise. He is a space-age warrior who defends his world and others from the forces of the warlord Skeletor, who also happens to be one of the universe's most powerful and feared dark magicians. In the Filmation version, he is the titular main protagonist of the 1983 cartoon show He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (as well in the controversial 1990 sequel series The New Adventures of He-Man) and a supporting character in the 1985 spin-off She-Ra: Princess of Power.

He-Man is actually Prince Adam, son of King Randor of Eternia. His powers come from a blessed sword that when utilised by the hero grants him the legendary power of Greyskull by which he can defeat almost any threat (in the live-action film using this sword He-Man was powerful enough to battle Skeletor when the mad dictator had attained literal godlike status).

He-Man, along with his pet tiger Battlecat and the other Masters Of The Universe, has become an icon of sorts and has spawned many cartoon series, TV shows and movies based around the subject - he is also the main character of the hugely successful toy line from which these adventures derived.

In the classic series, he was voiced by John Erwin, by Doug Parker and Garry Chalk in the 1990 series, and by Cam Clarke in the 2002-2003 series, who also voiced Leonardo in the 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series.

In the movie, he was portrayed by Dolph Lundgren.


He-Man is a heroic barbarian superhero who becomes the main defender of Castle Grayskull. His major role also holds a secret identity of a young prince named Prince Adam. He works in secret to become He-man and fight off Skeletor and other evil forces from taking the mystical secrets of the Castle.


Protecting Eternia

Prince Adam is the son of King Randor and Queen Marlena, an Earth woman, who rule the planet Eternia. His closest friend is Teela, the adopted daughter of Man-at Arms and captain of the palace guard. As Teela is unaware of his secret identity, Teela often thinks Adam is lazy or running from danger when he is in fact looking for somewhere to become He-Man. A number of other heroes would also join He-Man in his adventures during the show's run including Stratos, Buzz Off, Roboto, Ram-Man, Man-E-Faces, Sy-Klone, Moss Man, Zodac and Mekaneck. He-Man's primary adversary is Skeletor, a blue-skinned, skull-headed sorcerer and the ruler of Snake Mountain. Like He-Man, he had a number of allies, most notably Evil Lyn, Beast Manand Mer-Man.

Alternate Universes

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (2002)

The half brother of Captain Randor, named Keldor attacks with his army on the Hall of Wisdom, to take the power of Eternia by vanquishing the Council of Elders. Prince Adam was brought to Castle Grayskull on his 16th birthday as Skeletor's forces were sensed as to almost ready to destroy the Mystic Wall barrier that separated him for so many years. The series later on for season two focused on the return of an ancient Eternian enemy known as the Snakemen.

Live Action Film

In this film Prince Adam was not seen at all; only He-Man was shown. This He-Man was much more aggressive than his 1980s TV-series counterpart, attacking with lasers, his sword and bare fists several times throughout the film. The film ended with a clash with Skeletor, in which Skeletor was flung deep beneath Castle Grayskull into a pit filled with steaming liquid. He is portrayed as a widely recognized hero, regarded as a great leader and Eternia's best hope of survival.

Powers and Abilities

He-man is powered by the magical power of Castle Grayskull, and when tapping into that power he is given these following powers:

  • Strength: He-Man's main power is immense super-human strength. While the upper limit of He-man's strength is unknown, he is at least a class 100 (meaning he is at least able to lift a 100 tons). Using only strength He-man has lifted Castle Grey Skull, prevented Hordak's ship from achieving escape velocity and leaving Eternia's orbit and, when it was out of it's normal orbit, he pushed the Eternia's moon back in its rightful place orbiting Eternia. He-Man has easily moved mountains crushed diamond, thrown objects out of orbit and made a little crack in Eternia meters wide.
  • Super Speed: He-man has proven to be extremely fast and acrobatic, he has made whirl winds with his speed while running in a circle (proving he can run at least 400 MPH). He has also rubbed sand in his hands so fast he turned it into glass, spun his sword so fast in a circle he was able to generate lift and, thus, fly.
  • Nigh invulnerable: He-man is very durable and is nigh-invulnerable. He has been able to withstand intense laser blasts and has also survived massively heavy rocks falling on him without injury.
  • Wisdom: When Adam is He-Man he possesses uncanny wisdom and is almost always able to outsmart his foes rather than resorting to fighting them.
  • H2H: Prince Adam is a master of hand-to-hand combat and swordsmanship thanks to his close friend, mentor and weapons master Man-At-Arms and his daughter Teela.
