Subj: There were some "SJW gimmicky bs" going on with She-ra as well.

Difference being that people actually like Adora and there was no SJW gimmicky B.S. behind her introduction into the MotU universe nor a replacing of Adam.

I found it silly that compared to He-man, who was supposed to be the "most powerful man in the universe", She-ra seemed to be a tad stronger (rarely straining whenever she would do some strength feats, unlike He-man), and her power sword would have the basic powers of He-man's sword, but it can also change to various other weapons.

In terms of the villains, Hordak was Skeletor's Master, and the latter villain was just the apprentice. In the show, She-ra would always remind He-man that the evil horde were more of a threat than Skeletor and his evil minions. Whe Skeletor and Hordak face off, Hordak always seemed more powerful.

As for replacing Adam...well, she did in a way. She-ra replaced He-man as the lead in the show. Yes, I know she was in Etheria, and He-man was in Eternia, but the "Princess of Power" show replaced "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe". If you read the Dark Horse Complete Classic Animation Guide book, the Princess of Power series count as Seasons 3 and 4 of the Masters of the Universe series, and there were constant guest appearances of He-Man and the other denizens of Eternia, with She-Ra as the main hero.

As for people liking Adora....well, I don't. I accept no substitutes. I like the original. I refused to watch later episodes of She-ra just because I do not like He-man playing second banana to his "twin sister" and he sword of honor (ugh! A stupid retcon...there was no hint of another sword from Greyskull and no hint whatsoever of another child by King Randor and Queen Marlena in the Masters of the Universe series).
