This strip features Orko messing up yet another spell
when trying to make his room weightless.
Story 1: "It's A Zog's Life"
The Zog from the previous issue, who wants to join Skeletor's
army, returns to Eternia in his tiny spaceship, and
lands in Snake Mountain. He creates, with his ship,
an image of a warrior, who just manages to persuade
Skeletor that he can destroy He-Man for him. Meanwhile,
in a small village, He-Man is presenting a young boy
with a medal for bravery. But then Skeletor attacks,
with the strange warrior, who assists Skeletor's warriors
with knocking He-Man unconscious. Skeletor then begins
to attack the young boy, but the Zog is shocked at seeing
Skeletor trying to hurt someone of his own age, and
makes the warrior change sides, and attack Skeletor.
He-Man then recovers, and he and the stranger make Skeletor
retreat, then the Zog lands his ship in He-Man's hand,
the stranger fades away, and the Zog explains that he
has changed his mind about working for evil, now that
he has realised how evil Skeletor is.
The letters page this issue features someone curious
about Man-At-Arms' lack of a moustache in the first
few issues, and an explanation that these stories took
place before he decided to grow one!
Story 2: "Return of the Great Beasts"
Hordak uses a time portal machine to bring beasts from
ancient Eternia to the present day. He uses them to
attack a village. A villager rushes to Eternos and warns
the heroic warriors, and they start to fire at the beasts
as they march on Eternos, but their weapons have no
effect. So He-Man uses his sword to tunnel underground,
and emerges in front of Hordak's machine. After a brief
battle with a time creature, the beast accidentally
activates Hordak's laser weapon, which blows up the
machine, and the beats vanish.
Story 3: "The Children of Eternia"
The Children in Eternos city all mysteriously vanish,
and Stratos reveals it has happened all over Eternia.
Even worse, he has sighted a huge army on the northern
plain. He-Man, Teela, Stratos and Man-At-Arms set out
to find this army, and eventually find them- being led
by Skeletor! Skeletor reveals that the army ARE the
missing children, who have been aged by Evil-Lyn's spell
and brain-washed to obey Skeletor, using the Light of
Zor. So He-Man leads his warriors to the Cave of Doom,
where the spell was taken from, and after a struggle
with Skeletor's minions, Stratos retrieves the Light
of Zor, and the spell is broken. The warriors walk back
to Eternos city, and find the children making their
way back too.
