of the Universe Magazine
UK. Issue #6, 1986.
This issue's strip features Orko searching for a book
on magic in the library.
Story 1: "Mind Stone"
A meteor falls on Eternia, and is discovered by the
Evoks, who find that it is a magical stone, and carbe
a statue from it. But Skeletor is spying on them, and
sends Whiplash and Spikor to get the statue. They discover
that it gives its holder the power to project their
minds. Whiplash and Spikor are about to mess everything
up, so Skeletor goes there himself, just as He-Man and
Battle Cat arrive on the scene. Skeletor takes the statue
and projects his mind into Battle Cat's body, and Battle
Cat attacks He-Man- but He-Man knocks Battle Cat onto
Skeletor, so he drops the statue and Battle Cat is free.
But then Spikor and Whiplash attack He-Man, and they
keep him occupied while Skeletor takes the statue, leaving
a fake one in its place. Skeletor then pretends to retreat,
leaving He-Man to think he has failed to get the statue-
but the Evoks can tell the difference between the fake
statue and the real one, and He-Man realises that all
could be lost. (Story continues in "Machine Wars")
This issue's letters page contains a question about
She-Ra, and Scrollos hints that there is a new She-Ra
comic coming up. (Many fans were disappointed when a
She-Ra comic finally did come up, as they were terrible)
Story 2: "Machine Wars" (Cont'd from "Mind
It is King Randor's birthday and He-Man and Man-At-Arms
are giving a demonstration of the heroic vehicles to
entertain the citizens. Skeletor, in hiding, uses the
Evoks' statue to project his mind into the vehicles,
which attack the heroic warriors. But as He-Man knocks
a Wind raider towards Skeletor, he drops the statue,
which is crushed by the raider. He and his warriors
attempt to attack the heroic warriors in their own machines,
but they are beaten and flee in the Land Shark.
Story 3: "Pact of Evil"
Skeletor suggests to Hordak that they team up, to overcome
He-Man by combining their power. They set a monster-droid
on He-Man as he passes through a marsh, and set the
demon to explode, causing He-Man to fall unconscious.
They drag him to the Fright Zone, where they intend
to use a teleport bomb to transport He-Man to another
world. But as He-Man is imprisoned, they start fighting
with each other over who is more fit to destroy He-Man,
and He-Man breaks free and destroys the teleport bomb,
then runs, leaving them to fight among themselves.
first two stories are very memorable. The Evoks (hmmm,
wonder where that name came from) would appear in several
later issues. The last story contains a flashback to
the day that Skeletor betrayed Hordak, and stranded
him on a lifeless moon.)
