MotU Tri-Klops addendum

A side note for today's Masters of the Universe Tri-Klops review.

While I enjoy the fantasy aspects of MotU, and am pleased that so many characters carry swords and axes, I can't help but think such weapons seem rather silly in a world that has laser rifles and cannons and whatnot. Of course, MotU is a perfect example of a marketing department attempting to throw together everything young boys like - robots, guns, lasers, monsters, animals, swords - all the trappings of both science fiction and fantasy. Call it "science and sorcery." But from a realistic point of view, the swords remain superfluous, unless one makes a fannish argument that Eternians have stronger biological constitutions and can withstand laser blasts and whatnot with minimal harm, but the swords are somehow more dangerous.
