Masters-of-the-Universe-Piece Theatre: “Cat Fight”

It’s time for another Masters-of-the-Universe-Piece Theatre photo story. The name “Masters-of-the-Universe-Piece Theatre” was coined by Kevin Beckett at the Whetstone Discord server.

Like “Held Hostage”, This is another story that features not my usual Masters of the Universe Origins figures, but the larger Masterverse figures, because I got lucky and found the Masterverse She-Ra for a good price. Once again there’s also a slightly different version of this story on Twitter.

The Masterverse She-Ra in front of Castle Grayskull.

“For the Honour of Grayskull, I am She-Ra!”

Of course, I already have a very nice She-Ra figure, but since Mattel never made any of her friends and particularly her three canonical love interests in Origins for reasons best known to themselves (especially since they did make most of the male villains), my She-Ra was a little lonely.

However, a couple of characters from the vintage She-Ra: Princess of Power cartoons did come out in the Masterverse line, such as She-Ra’s friend/rival/enemy/lover (it’s complicated) Catra.

Massterverse Catra and Schleich Eldrador shadow panther

Catra’s feline friend as a Schleich Eldrador Shadow Panther, which works perfectly in scale with her.

So now I have both She-Ra and Catra, let’s see what happens when the two former friends turned enemies meet:

In the Whispering Woods:

Catra and She-Ra confront each other.“Catra!”



“The Whispering Woods are rebel territory. You have no business here. Leave now and no one needs to get hurt.”

“Not a chance, She-Ra. If I’m leaving the Whispering Woods, I’m taking you with me as my prisoner. If I bring you back to the Fright Zone, the Mighty Hordak will reward me richly.”

“Hordak is using you, Catra. You don’t need to work for him anymore. Walk away and join the rebellion, just like me. And then we can be together again, be friends again, just like we used to be.”

She-Ra and Catra fight.

“Things will never be like they used to be, Adora. You left me. You joined the rebellion and went back to your birth family and left me all alone.”

“I’m sorry. I wanted to take you with me, but…”

“Liar! You forgot all about me the moment that He-Man walked through the door.”

“He’s my brother, Catra! Hordak stole me from my family, when I was a baby and he probably did the same to you. Why do you still work for him?”

“Because Hordak made me Force Captain, once you left.”

“Don’t you see that he’s just making you do terrible things in the name of the Horde?”

“The Horde is only doing what needs to be done. Once upon a time you used to know that. Before you turned traitor.”

She-Ra lowers her weapon.“No, Catra, I don’t want to fight you.”

“Then you’ll surrender to me without a fight? Good. That makes it easier for me to bring you in. Hordak will be so pleased.”

“We used to be friends, Catra, blast it! And while I won’t fight you, I will defend myself, if you force me to.”

Catra and She-Ra both lower their weapons.“Look, I don’t want to fight you either, Adora.”

“Then don’t. Hordak doesn’t own you. You don’t need to do what he wants. You’re your own person, Catra. You can do whatever you want.”


“What do you want to do, Catra?”

“I… I just want to kiss you.”

Catra and She-Ra kiss, while Catra's panther looks on.“I want to kiss you, too.”

“Then why don’t we…?”



Catra and She-Ra kiss.“Hordak won’t like this, you know?”

“Screw Hordak!”

“Ugh, I’d rather not.”

“Forget Hordak and kiss me.”



Yes, She-Ra is canonically bisexual and kisses girls. Live with it.

The fact that Adora likes girls wasn’t invented by the 2018 She-Ra and the Princesses of Power cartoon either. In fact, the remarkably good DC Comics Masters of the Universe run from 2012 to 2016 introduces Adora as the Horde enforcer Despara who’s a lot more evil than her counterpart in The Secret of the Sword. As Despara, Adora sports a buzzcut and shows an unusual interest in Teela and zero interest in any of the male characters. In fact, Adora’s two male love interests Bow (who never seemed very straight in the first place) and Sea Hawke don’t appear in those comics at all. Honestly, look at this panel and tell that there are no sapphic vibes here.

So yup, Adora likes girls. Will she end up with Catra or someone else? Only time will tell.

However, that’s it for today, folks. I hope you enjoyed this Masters-of-the-Universe-Piece Theatre Photo Story, because there will be more.
