“I am Adam, Prince of Eternia and defender of the secrets of Castle Grayskull…Fabulous secret powers were revealed to me the day I held aloft my magic sword and said…By the power of Grayskull!”
If you are able to recall first few bits from the above line and picture as well, then I am sure it will ignite a spark of thrill in you as it does to me after watching the original opening theme. It’s just you cannot divert your sight, at least for a minute, to relive with the most epic fictional comic/adventure series called He-man and the Masters of the Universe.
As you go with the opening theme, the scene proceeds with the transformation of Adam into a so-called He-man, the most powerful man in the universe, by screaming following words, “I have the Power!!!”, Where He-man along with self-transformation changes Cringer, his coward cat, into a Mighty Battle Cat. He-man together with his friends, with whom he shares his marvel, serves to defend the Castle Grayskull from the evil forces of Skeletor.
Well this is the moment where I would like to divert you attention from Marvelous He-man to the fortified Castle Grayskull, seen at the back when the Adam with his raised sword undergoes transformation to He-man. The Castle Grayskull for He-man and his friends forms a structure to be defended from evil forces and for the readers like you is what this article orbits around.

Castle Grayskull is located on the planet Eternia and is make the events in the Masters of the Universe to whirl around it.
Skeletor, Hordak and the Snake Men altogether forms the evil force which targets Castle Grayskull in a belief that the secrets the castle hold if revealed will allow them to rule the planet better known to be the Masters of the universe.
