This is likely to be old news to those of you already embroiled in World of Warcraft, but those of us who inhabit the world of the washed have only just discovered that He-Man and Skeletor can be found hiding out in World of Warcraft. This is thanks to a pair of trading cards baring their legally different enough to not be considered copyright theft faces.

As you can see, "Adam Eternum" and "Keldor the Lost" (names based on the original alter egos of the iconic Funimation characters) look pretty badass in their new Azeroth digs. I'm guessing that the status of parody and/or homage protects the characters from any legal issues, or perhaps Blizzard worked something outwith the license holders. Either way, everybody loves Skeletor, so WoW just got a little more cool. 

Have any of you MMO fans met these guys? Or are there any Masters of the Universe fans now signing up for a WoW subscription as we speak?
