Get ready for another big and crazy crossover as DC’s Injustice and He-Man and the Master of the Universe worlds are about to collide. We’ve seen some interesting crossovers lately including Batman and the Ninja Turtles as well as the Justice League and Power Rangers. This one looks to keep up the chaos and fun we’re used to seeing.
While there has been a crossover between the DCU characters and those from He-Man, the fact that this is focusing on the Injustice characters makes it a little different.
What could possibly bring these two universes together? Here’s the info from DC’s blog.
Believing He-Man and the Masters of the Universe defeated, a robotic impostor has seized control of Eternia—but not for long! After freeing his kingdom from this strongman’s rule, He-Man learns not everyone is pleased to see the pretender deposed—but Adam knows the value of freedom. When heroes from another dimension ask his aid in deposing a superhero turned dictator, he agrees. Teaming up with Batman against the Superman of the Injustice Universe, He-Man and his new allies face dangerous and familiar enemies in a battle where no world is safe!
It seems that while He-Man has his own political problems to deal with, there are some from the Injustice universe asking for his help? This doesn’t quite seem like something Batman would do, but desperate times call for desperate measures, as they say. We’ll have to wait for the first issue to see how exactly the call for help is made.
The six-issue miniseries will be written by Tim Seeley (Grayson, Nightwing, Green Lanterns). The art will be provided by Freddie E. Williams II. Williams is responsible for the art in 2016’s He-Man/Thundercats miniseries as well as Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Clearly he’ll have no problem tackling all these iconic characters.
You can buy Injustice Vs. He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe #1 on July 18. The issue will be available through comic retailers as well as digital download.
What are you hoping to see in the series? Hopefully things will get intense. I’m hoping to either see Batman wielding He-Man’s sword or possibly riding on the back of Battle Cat.
