However because of Gayskull's sexuality, his spell turns Pando into She-Man, a gay superhero who rides a butterfly into battle.

Comments: Played by Joey de Leon, She-Man is a Filipino comedic satire of He-Man (like you couldn't have guessed that) and Panday, a national hero. It helped rocket comedian de Leon to the top of the Phillippines box office.
