DC enjoys fanservice these days, that much is clear. As of late, there have been so many crossovers that have caused many nostalgic grins. And today, we have another big piece of news that will get those who grew up in the ’80s excited.
DC is announcing a brand new Digital First comic book series taking place in the Injustice universe. With whom are they crossing over? Well, it’s He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.
Even in my wildest imaginations, I would have never thought I’d see Batman talking to a ’80s action figure. Injustice vs He-Man and the Masters of the Universe will bring together Nightwing‘s Tim Seeley and Freddie E. Williams II, now known for Batman/Teenage Mutants Ninja Turtles. Williams is turning into the crossover king!
“I have the power!”

Six-Issue Miniseries Brings Together Characters from the Popular Digital First Comic with the Fantastic Heroes and Villains from the Classic Mattel Toy Line
DC Entertainment and Mattel are joining forces to bring fans of the INJUSTICE Digital First comics and anyone who’s ever screamed “I Have the Power!” at the top of their lungs—an epic quest for the fate of a world in INJUSTICE VS. HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE.
This six-issue miniseries will be written by Tim Seeley, who’s no stranger to writing high-octane adventure stories at DC as the writer for DC titles such as GRAYSON, NIGHTWING and GREEN LANTERNS. Seeley teams up with fan-favorite artist Freddie E. Williams II, himself no stranger to the action and dangers of Eternia, having provided the art for 2016’s HE-MAN/THUNDERCATS miniseries. Williams’ distinctive art style has also thrilled fans on other crossovers like the smash-hit BATMAN/TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES in 2015 and its follow-up sequel in 2017.
Believing He-Man and the Masters of the Universe defeated, a robotic impostor has seized control of Eternia—but not for long! After freeing his kingdom from this strongman’s rule, He-Man learns not everyone is pleased to see the pretender deposed—but Adam knows the value of freedom. When heroes from another dimension ask his aid in deposing a superhero turned dictator, he agrees. Teaming up with Batman against the Superman of the Injustice Universe, He-Man and his new allies face dangerous and familiar enemies in a battle where no world is safe!
INJUSTICE VS. HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE #1 arrives at comic book retailers and via digital download on July 18, 2018. Check out the website at www.dccomics.com or the DC YouTube channel for the latest news on this crossover blockbuster and the latest from the DC Universe.
