Devil Comics Review | He-Man: The Eternity War Vol. 2 [2015] Dan Abnett

He-Man: The Eternity War #7 Skeletor discovers he kidnapped Adora and traveled to the past to raise her with Shadow Weaver. We also discover Skeletor was destroyed by Hordak and his staff is his skull. Now using his staff Skeletor will travel to Despondos to settle with Hordak. 

He-Man: The Eternity War #8 Adam plans to save the Eternians by travelling to the stars and finding a new home on a distant planet. However Hordak has the Eyes of Grayskull and destroys the planet where the Eternians would have eventually settled upon. Now he asks King Adam to surrender because he is the Master of the Universe.

He-Man: The Eternity War #9 Hordak has become the Master of the Universe and takes Evil-Lyn as his Queen however he now faces the wrath of Skeletor who turns his army against him. Evil-Lyn becomes the new Sorceress of Horokoth and betrays Hordak as Skeletor plunges his sword into him. Now Skeletor becomes the Master of Death.

He-Man: The Eternity War #10 King Adam assumes leadership and leads his forces against the Fright Zone and Castle Grayskull. Skeletor sends War Wraith against King Adam and vows to rule the universe or destroy it. She-Ra escapes the Void of the Lost Souls with the help of Teela as Moss Man sacrifices himself restores the lands which was once the Fright Zone. As the forces marches towards Castle Grayskull, King Adam faces the War Wraith who is really Duncan, the Man-At-Arms.

He-Man: The Eternity War #11 We discover how Duncan survived his fall from space with the help of Roboto. He is captured by Tri-Klops and taken to Skeletor where he is turned. Now Duncan takes on Adam who is battling the Snake-Man from within Hssss, the Master of Disguise.

He-Man: The Eternity War #12 The blood of Adam courses through Skeletor and forges Hordak’s Dark Blade. Adam battles the Master of Disguise as uncertainty falls on the final page.

He-Man: Eternity War #13 She-Ra battles the Dark Riders to reach Castle Greyskull as the shield around it comes crashing down thanks to Man-At-Arms placing a bomb on Tri-Klops helmet. In Adam’s mind he takes back control from Hsss, the Master of Disguise and with him the Snake Men. Skeletor rises to become the Master of Death as Adam also rises to become the Master of Eternity.

He-Man: Eternity War #14 He-Man and the forces of Eternia hold back Skeletor and his legion of the dead. She-Ra realizes she must destroy the Eyes of Greyskull but first she must face the undead Hordak. He-Man destroys Skeletor while She-Ra destroys the Eyes of Greyskull. What’s left is a new Castle Greyskull floating above the land. Man-At-Arms exchanges his life for the life of his daughter Teela who is dying after Hsss was defeated by Adam.

He-Man: Eternity War #15 Zodac reveals to Adam that the universe is saved after defeating Skeletor and destiny has changed. Grayskull is open for everyone and not just for the Masters of the Universe. After the death of Hordak, She-Ra leaves for Etheria to find the Crystal Castle. Adam and Teela marry each other to become the King and Queen of Eternia as Evil-Lyn resurrects Skeletor. 

The series is a great ending and beginning for the Masters of the Universe closing out these versions of the stories. Hopefully after Rebirth, DC Comics will return to the world and forge new stories and new adventures of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.
