Fearless Photog was a character created for The Masters of the Universe series. He had the ability to ‘focus in’ on his enemies and drain their strength. His chest plate displayed silhouettes of his defeated enemies. [1]

In 1986, a contest was held for children to send in designs for new characters. Five finalists were chosen, and people were then allowed to vote for their favorite. In the last page of the Spring 1986 issue of The Masters of the Universe Magazine, they announced 12-year old Nathan Bitner as the winner of the contest with his submission of Fearless Photog.[2] Nathan was awarded a scholarship for 100,000 dollars, plus a five-day trip to Disneyland.[3]

Despite the contest's premise, however, Fearless Photog never actually went into production until his 2012 release in Masters of the Universe Classics. There, he is revealed as Jey, apprentice of Gwildor. During the presentation of his invention, the Photog Emulator, a miscalculation led to a flux overload that merged Jey with his invention, leaving him with the ability to drain his enemies' energy and display their defeat on his chest.
