Wings of Wickedness!

In a section titled "The Masters of the Universe Revealed:" from the 1981 Masters of the Universe Licensee Book one of the most interesting character changes is discovered when we learn that Stratos was originally planned to be an Evil Warrior! Amusingly in the accompanying illustration Stratos' expression does look particularly evil!

Whoa, that's freaky! The cartoon series kind of pulled this off in "Reign Of The Monster," when Skeletor used a mind spell to put Stratos under his control, in addition to creating clones of Stratos, to attack the Heroic Warriors! Shocking info, James. :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

Hey James!
Yeah this is an old post, it's been a long time since I've been through this blog... SHAME ON MEEE!

At any rate... THIS would explain why Alcala drew Stratos with Skeletor and Beastman in the minicomic, He-Man and the Power Sword. So Stratos WAS at one point early on, meant to be evil.

You probably knew that already. :)

Best!

Nate.

Was Stratos the first "non-human" good guy?
