This story carries a PG to PG-13 rating as it contains violence including character death as well as some adult language.
Continuity: This story follows the continuity of the classic Masters of the Universe storyline with bits of the re-launch storyline mixed in for clarity. The G.I. Joe continuity is a mixture of the comics and cartoon favoring the comic portion. Joe fans should also note in my storyline Storm Shadow is once again a Joe member.
At the center of the universe, the very spot where the "big bang" occurred, there exists the planet Eternia, a world were myth, sorcery and technology intertwine creating a realm of scientific wonder and magical splendor. But the peace of this realm has fallen victim to the ravages of Skeletor, a tyrannical leader bent on the conquest and enslavement of the entire universe. Skeletor needs only one thing to achieve this goal… the all mighty powers of Castle Grayskull.
In order to protect Grayskull and the innocents of Eternia, a great power has been bestowed upon what seems the unlikeliest of candidates; Prince Adam, heir to the throne of Eternos. But when the seemingly cowardly prince holds aloft the magical Sword of Power, he is transformed into He-Man, the most powerful man in the universe!
Along with his allies, He-Man has managed to defend all of Eternia for years. But the armies of darkness do not rest. And the capture of Grayskull is ever most in their minds. For to those who control Grayskull will come, the power. The power to be supreme. The power to be all mighty. The power to be Masters of the Universe.
In another part of the universe, far out on the western arm of a spiral galaxy, known to some as "The Milky Way", lies another unique planet known as Earth. Here there exists another type of heroes known as G.I. Joe. G.I. Joe is the codename for a daring highly trained special missions force. Its purpose; to defend freedom against Cobra. A ruthless terrorist organization determined to rule the world.
While they would seem to be completely different, these two groups of heroes are about to discover they have more in common than any of them could possibly imagine. And that the fate of the universe will rely on their combined forces…
