That’s the word from Unexplainable.net, a website devoted to exploring why aliens and UFOs are actually the demons and fallen angels of Christian legendry.
Next, we watch Adam turn into He-Man by drawing his power sword and absorbing the lightning signifying the power of Grayskull. This, we are told, is really the power of Satan from Luke 10:18, the same passage other biblical nincompoops tried to say was “Barack Obama” in Hebrew: “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.” The context of this sentence is completely different from that of Daniel and comes in a passage about exorcisms. Similarly, Revelation 13:13, also said to apply to He-Man, is from yet another context: “And it performed great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to the earth in full view of the people.” The “it” is the second beast, with horns on its head. He-Man does not have horns.
This same evidence, incidentally, is used by Neo-Nazis (I’ll spare you the links to white supremacist websites) to proclaim He-Man Ayran propaganda since he is “obviously” wearing the German Iron Cross. In this reading, He-Man’s lightning stands for the SS, which used lightning bolts as its insignia; his Battle Cat is “obviously” a Nazi panzer (panther) tank. “Man-at-Arms” must also be an SS officer, since his name is an English translation of the singular of Shutzstaffel. Also: He-Man’s a blond barbarian superman. Skeletor, Neo-Nazis agree, represents Jews since he carries a ram’s head staff, like the ram’s horn and staff of Moses; uses black magic; obsesses over ancient texts and scrolls; and tries to suck all the wealth and goodness out of Eternia to enrich himself.
Returning to our fundamentalist author, we read that the sorceress of Grayskull violates biblical prohibitions against sorcery, such as those of Jeremiah 27:9, Malachi 3:5, and Revelation 21:8. Our author sees Skeletor much like the Neo-Nazis, recognizing his ram’s-head staff as an “occult” symbol and accusing him of stealing the “powers of Eternia” through Snake Mountain, symbolic of Satan, that old serpent from Eden. Our author accuses Skeletor of idol worship, expresses shock that he performs pagan yoga positions during magic, and objects that he visited ancient ruins in the shape of pyramids, which are obviously anti-Christian since pyramids on earth are associated with pagan gods, whom we know from 1 Corinthians 10:20 are actually Satan’s minions.
At least the Neo-Nazis have a small grain of truth in their version: Since He-Man was inspired by Robert E. Howard’s Conan stories, he carries with him some of Howard’s racist attitudes—although Mattel actually made He-Man into a blonder, more Aryan figure than Conan, who was a blue-eyed, black-haired, muscle-bound proto-Celt. Howard imagined the ancient (rather than the current) white race as pure and manly and noble and rising up from barbarism after the destruction of the decadent brown-skinned ruling peoples of Atlantis, a race of evil sorcerers headed by Skeletor’s prototype, Skull-Face, also called Kathulos.
