With new movies and TV shows in development I figured the most iconic pair of 80s siblings this side of The Reynolds Girls deserved their own thread. (Indulge me, I'm quite the fan.) The Masters of the Universe toyline launched in 1982, with the meme-spawning Filmation animated series following a year later. Original comics and story books established the cast of characters as a cross between Conan the Barbarian and Star Wars, with the animated series adding a Clark Kent-esque secret identity and a further fleshed out backstory. The show revolved around mild-mannered Prince Adam as the son of an alien king and an astronaut from Earth, living a dual life as He-Man, the Most Powerful Man in the Universe. He and his colourful friends defended the planet from future gay icon Skeletor and his Evil Warriors, each with their own exciting action feature. In 1985 the series was retconned with the launch of She-Ra: Princess of Power, which revealed that Adam was actually a twin. His sister Adora was kidnapped by Skeletor's mentor Hordak as a baby and raised to be evil (yeah, that old chestnut) on the far-off world of Etheria. She-Ra's series was always more interesting to me, as she lived on a world where the Evil Horde ruled with an iron fist, with most citizens of the planet living in slavery and a Great Rebellion made up mostly of women in neon leotards being their only chance of freedom. Other incarnations of the saga include a 1987 live-action film starring Dolph Lungdren and a fresh-faced Courtney Cox, a short-lived 1990 spinoff which sent He-Man and Skeletor into the far future, a 2002 reboot which revealed Skeletor was actually Prince Adam's demon-possessed uncle, and a recent comic book series from DC which took elements from all of the above and added a sizeable dose of Game of Thrones grit. A new live-action He-Man movie has supposedly been in development since the turn of the millennium, so goodness knows if it will ever happen. Apparently the success of Wonder Woman has meant studios are dusting off old She-Ra scripts, so it is likely that she will hit the big screen before her brother. Dreamworks have a Princess of Power animated series in development, but complicated rights issues mean she may end up a completely separate brand to her brother, which sucks. I hope they are able to sort things out.
