Next week sees the publication of the first comic book issue of Masters Of The Universe: Revelation ahead of the Netflix TV series, working as a prequel to the show, by Kevin Smith, Rob David, Tim Sheridan, and Mindy Lee. In the lead-up to release, one panel from the comic book on sale on Wednesday has already leaked to the interwebs.
Masters Of The Universe: Revelation #1 has the first appearance of the First King of Greyskull. And to make it easy to remember, his name is King Greyskull. And apparently, he has the power…
In the 2002 version of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe cartoon, King D'Vann Grayskull or King Grayskull was king of Eternia, ancestor of King Randor and Prince Adam, considered one of the greatest leaders of the government of Eternia, around five hundred years before the time of the rule of his descendant King Randor.
Upon his death, King Grayskull transferred his mystical energies into his Power Sword which now forms the basis of He-Man's power, and explaining the cry "By the power of Grayskull!", refers to the king, not the castle. If this is a redesign of King Grayskull, or another ancestor is not yet known. Might he be appearing in the TV show too? UPDATE: Apparently so. Dennis Haysbert was announced yesterday as as voicing King Grayskull. So there you go. Maybe not entirely a big spoiler then.
