"He-Man and the" has been removed from the name of DC's upcoming Injustice/He-Man crossover. The series, which is scheduled to debut July 18, will now be titled Injustice vs. The Masters of the Universe.
He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was the full title of both the 1983 and 2002 cartoon series based on Mattel's Masters of the Universe toyline. The two animated series and the toyline all have separate storylines.
The publisher gave no reason for this change.
Here is the updated solicitation:
