Mr. Eternia

Here is a little piece of history.  Back in 1975 there was this bodybuilding contest for Mr. Eternia.  It was an epic battle between up-and-comer, He-Man and the reigning champion, Skeletor.  Skeletor won the contest, left Eternia and became a huge action star.  He-man became a tv star and can be seen at comic conventions all across the country.  Anyways, here's a drawing of a simpler time, when our heroes were super, super pumped up!


  1. Awesome! Another piece of history: did you know that He-Man was originally intended to be a Conan the Barbarian toy, but the manufacturer lost copyright, so they changed all the characters' names? Apparently Cringer came from a line of nature toys!

  2. I did not know that Austin, but now it all makes sense.
