- This article is about He-Man's son. For He-Man's ancestor, see He-Ro.
He-Ro is the titular character in the unproduced animated series He-Ro Son of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. The character was developed in 1996 as part of a pitch by Lou Scheimer to DIC Entertainment to make a sequel to the original He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. The pitch was not used and the series never moved beyond the original show bible.
According to Scheimer's pitch, He-Ro is the alter ego of Dare, a feral child discovered by He-Man ten years after Prince Adam became king of Eternia. Dare is adopted by Adam and inherits the Sword of Power. He assumes He-Man's responsibilities by transforming himself into He-Ro and his faithful crow Craven into Battle-Bird. Cringer continues to serve as Battle Cat in He-Ro's adventures.

During a Q&A, Mattel implied Battleground Evil-Lyn's bio included some elements of Dare's story. Since the bio mentions an unrevealed son of Skeletor, and Dare's biological parents' identity was going to be an ongoing mystery throughouth the cancelled series, it's possible for him to be Skeletor's son.
UPDATE: On August 20, 2011Mattel confirmed that the son of Skeletor and Evil-Lyn was not in fact Dare.
Normally we don't spoil bio info, but for the sake of sanity and clarification, no Dare is not Skeletor and Evil Lyn's son. Two different characters. Keep reading the bios! - ToyGuru
