A total creep

That is fucking stupid. If I had a partner like that, they're going to get "We should see other people" before they realize it.To make partner even betterer?
Fair enough, but it should be a natural evolution, two people sharing their lives adapting to each other's quirks and idiosyncrasies, instead of one or the other forcing the other to fit some fantastic idyll. As you say, the latter is personally insulting and an immediate sign that the relationship isn't going to work out.Well, there is some matter of compromise when you decide to share your life with someone. This much is normal, not everything should just go your or their way.
Some people disagree, and some of those people feel like their partner has "potential" and is a fixer-upper. This is pervasive enough to br a trope found in media. I Can Change My Beloved - TV Tropes
Personally, I find that offensively disrespectful, but I'm not the relationship police.
I have no real investment in the He-man and the Masters of the Universe franchise. I'm actually more familiar with the 2002 reboot series, as that was on when I was a kid. It was cool, but never really one of my favorite things.So, the new He-man is finally out, and it's apparently even worse that was feared. It's already being compared to the Star Wars sequels, in terms of how insulting it is to fans and the franchise as a whole. He-man himself is killed off within the first five minutes, and things just get progressively (Hah!) more terrible from there.
You're talking to someone who cared so little about Star Wars for decades (even before the prequels and sequels), that he used to confuse it with its parody, Spaceballs; whether or not something is considered a "big deal" almost always comes down to a matter of perspective. A lot of people remember He-Man fondly from their childhoods; don't be dismissive towards that, unless you want them to be dismissive towards your passions.I have no real investment in the He-man and the Masters of the Universe franchise.

That said, I can kind of understand the feeling of being baited-and-switched if you did have nostalgia for HM&tMotU and were looking forward to Looking at the episode summaries, it's all "Teela goes..." "Teela finds..." "Teela and her friends...". He-man is no longer the main character of his own franchise. From what I hear it's not quite fair to say he just dies in the first episode, since he's not dead dead. But I know if there was, say, some kind of Avatar the Last Airbender reboot where Aang wasn't really the main character, I would be mad as hell.
So the response to Revelation is kind of predictable. Like, come on, Kevin Smith. Weren't you smart enough to know what the response would be to going in this direction? Maybe not. Though at the same time, part of me is like, come on. It's He-man. How sacred can a cheesy 80s cartoon be? Let's not pretend this is as big of a deal as something like Star Wars going off the rails.
