To be honest, He-Man was always a guy with an extremely questionable wardrobe; but thankfully, Fab Ciraolo's series, dubbed Oldschool Heroes, has taken care of his outfits once and for all.

Ciraolo's Oldschool Heroes series shows off 80s cartoon characters in makeovers that show off how great they could look if they put a little effort into looking good. Remember Thundercat's Lion-O and his oddly perforated onesie? He's now actually suited up in more appropriate attire. She-Ra has ditched the dress and now looks good enough to strut around New York City during fashion week. In a way, these characters have gone from hero to hipster with their new indie-like attire.

The Oldschool Heroes series does a brilliant job of hilariously making over 80s superhero outfits with something more modern...and breathable. Stats for Heroic Hipster Portraits Trending: Older & Buzzing
