We definitely agree on a lot of things on this matter, I just don't view Adora in the same light. Adora wasn't written out the "stories" countless times due to being a useless character. She actually had a backstory that was thought out versus a concept that destroyed 50 plus years of amazing continuity. He-man might have taken a "backseat", but he wasn't destroyed and emasulated by a Femi-Nazi pushing a weak-ass concept.

Ass-ron gave Jane cancer as a plot device in order to give her some kind of "worthiness" characteristic showing her refusing to be cured, but willing to keep using the "Mother Storms" power (it sure as hell isn't the power of Thor anymore with Ass-ron's retconning Mjolnir's origin) despite it "killing" her.

So, I see your P.o.V. but slightly disagree with the correlation on similariites.


We were never even shown how Adam got the power sword. He was just He-man, defender of Castle Greyskull, champion of Eternia.

The He-man and The Masters of the Universe series was only on air for 2 seasons (2 years? I dunno, I didn't watch it back then...i have the dvd), before Filmation replaced it with She-Ra Princess of Power. The circumstances then was very different. So, you keep on mentioning that "Aaron did this...Jane is like this...Adora is not like this...Aaron ruined 50 years of continuity....etc.", uhhhhh....not an apples to apples kind of thing.

But here are the similarities between the situations of Thor/Jane and He-Man/She-Ra as they are now (due to the preview image above)....1) Thor and Jane both have their own hammers, He-man and She-Ra both have their power swords (sword of power and sword of protection). 2) She-Ra's sword of Protection has all of the powers of He-man's sword of power plus other powers such as changing to different weapons. Jane employs Mjolnir in different ways that Thor never did. 3) And as for Aaron's depiction, Jane using the "power of Thor" seems more powerful than the original Thor, as She-ra seemed more powerful (rarely straining in her strength feats) than the "most powerful man in the universe". Those are just about it.

Injecting "SJW", continuity...etc....is like someone commenting that two girls have similar dresses, then another comes and say "nah, one is blonde the other is brunette, one wears heels the other wears flats...".

But as far as continuity goes...the introduction of Adora as Adam's twin sister retconned some continuity from the first 2 seasons of Masters of the Universe...one, there was no mention of Adam's twin sister...at all. Second, the Power Sword was supposed to be the most powerful weapon in Eternia, followed closely (supposed to be almost equal, according to the episode) by the "Sword of the Ancients" (it was in one episode in the first season), and the two joined to be the most powerful sword in all the universe. There was no mention then of the "Sword of Protection", which is actually more powerful than the actual Sword of Power. So, in some ways, the introduction of She-ra retconned some established continuity. But that's not the reason why I said "I am getting a He-man and She-ra vibe".
