Skeletor appears to celebrate a touchdown in this ad for the Masters of the Universe Atari 2600 game

May 30, 2013


“The Power of He-Man” was one of the many Atari 2600 games that I wanted as a kid, but wasn’t blessed to have. I had to content myself with the simple bottom-to-top wizardry of the Spider-Man game, which locked him in a Groundhog Day of repeated Spider-Death. Alas. (Oddly enough, the other hero game that eluded my young grasp was the Atari game for fellow hero and occasional He-Man sparring partner, Superman.)

This ad would have been much better if Stinkor and Trap Jaw were backing up Skeletor instead of Tri-Klops and Beast Man. Just my opinion.
