How Kevin Smith Took Inspiration From His Own Life For Masters Of The Universe: Revolution 

Creator Kevin Smith added a huge Easter Egg in that MOTU: Revelation monologue comes from his own life, and is an apt homage.

Masters Of The Universe Revolution

Kevin Smith’s Masters Of The Universe is getting a second season, entitled Revolution. After a hugely successful, albeit divisive first season, Masters Of The Universe: (MOTU) Revolution continues the story of He-Man in a brand new direction that takes things to the next level. The season explores He-Man having to discover who he is, whether a king or a champion of Eternia. But there is a very emotional MOTU: Revolution monologue that comes directly from the creator’s own life. 

Please note that the following will feature spoilers for the first episode of Masters Of The Universe: Revolution

Masters Of The Universe Revolution Sees He-Man In An Emotional Place

The story of Masters Of The Universe: Revolution features an incredible internal conflict within Prince Adam after the loss of his father. The story focuses on how Adam deals with this, as he has to figure out how to be King of Eternia, but also its Champion. But in a very emotional MOTU: Revolution monologue, Adam discusses his feelings about the loss of his father. 

During the eulogy, Adam (Chris Wood) has no idea what kind of speech to give to the kingdom in mourning for his father. While at first, he doesn’t know what to say, he finds the right words. Adam tells a beautiful story about how when he was little, he wanted a special kind of bike. But the bike, a billow-bike, (unique to the world of Eternia) was all sold out in all of Eternia.

However, since his young son wanted it so badly, King Randor built him his bike by updating the bike he already had. King Randor wasn’t that handy himself, so the bike looked terrible, and Adam never rode it, despite the sweet gesture from his dad. But during the MOTU: Revolution monologue, Adam breaks down, revealing he would give anything to have that bike once again in his possession. The bike is a symbol of his father’s love for him. 

MOTU: Revolution Monologue Comes Directly From Kevin Smith’s Life

What’s heartbreaking is that the moving MOTU: Revolution monologue is all true. And comes from creator Kevin Smith’s own life. Smith has a very successful career as a moderator, host, and podcaster. In multiple instances, Smith has told an almost exactly similar story about his childhood. Having lost his father, Smith has told the story of his father updating his bike, which a young Smith wasn’t too happy with. But he smiled through it, given the very special gesture his father made to him by working on the bike for his son’s happiness. Smith’s story ends almost word for word like Adam’s, wishing he could have that bike back again. 

So it’s an apt homage to his father that Smith incorporated that story into that MOTU: Revolution monologue. It’s also very very heartwarming to see that what Adam is going through in Masters Of The Universe: Revolution, is something very close to Smith’s heart. As the writer of the premiere episode of Revolution, Smith brilliantly writes Adam with the vulnerability of a son who lost his father, making him question his place in the world and dealing with just how important his father was in his life. That monologue and the scenes themselves take on deeper meaning knowing that it comes from a real place of loss and mourning. 

Masters Of The Universe: Revolution is now streaming on Netflix.
