Story 1: "Man-At-Arms: Traitor!"
Skeletor has found that Man-At-Arms has created a new
super-weapon, which he wants for his own. He sends Trap
Jaw out into the woods, where Man-At-Arms is walking
with Prince Adam. Trap Jaw overpowers Man-At-Arms with
a hypno-gas, that turns him evil, so Adam sneaks off
and becomes He-Man, then frightens Trap Jaw away. As
Trap Jaw escapes, he just manages to escape with Man-At-Arms
before He-Man can save him. Skeletor tells Man-At-Arms
to build the super-weapon for him. Several days later,
they attack the Royal palace, with Man-At-Arms' new
machine and Skeletor's hovering sun-fire, but He-Man
is acting strangely, and refuses to allow the heroic
warriors to strike back. They grow even more confused
when Man-At-Arms moves the energy beam, destroying the
sun-fire machine. Skeletor flees, and He-Man and Man-At-Arms
then reveal that He-Man had freed Man-At-Arms from the
evil spell just before Trap Jaw had escaped with him.
A rather complex story!

Story 2: "Jewel of Fire"
A fisherman discovers a strange scroll that shows the
location of a fabulous gem called the jewel of fire,
that contains the secrets of the universe. He goes to
the Royal city to tell Man-At-Arms, but Tri-Klops spies
on him as he does so. Both Skeletor and He-Man end up
going after the jewel at once, leading to a great conflict.
Story 3: "Undersea Attack"
Mer-Man discovers a hole in the sea bed, which leads
into a tunnel which runs through to the river in the
Royal gardens. He goes to tell Skeletor, who is so impressed
that he says he will make Mer-Man his second-in-command
if he does another deed this good. Mer-Man decides he
will capture Prince Adam, so he will be promoted in
the army, so he swims through the tunnel to the Royal
gardens, and captures the Prince. He delivers him to
Skeletor, who tells Mer-Man he will send an invasion
fleet through the tunnel, then he will promote Mer-Man.
But when he is not looking, Prince Adam find a way to
escape, and he retrieves his sword, runs off and changes
to He-Man. He-Man destroys the submarines which Skeletor
intends to use to attack the city, then he fends off
Skeletor's henchmen, and then Man-At-Arms and Teela
arrive and force Skeletor's men into a trap. He-Man
then dives into the sea, and uses his sword to seal
the hole and close the underwater passage.
