introductory Scroll of Scrollos in this episode states
the first news about an upcoming live-action MOTU movie.
This issue's brief comedy strip features Orko accidentally
making his hat disappear on stage, but the artists cop
out and refuse to show him without his hat.
Story 1: "The Mightiest Warrior"
After winning the Eternian games, He-Man suddenly starts
to vanish before Teela and Orko's eyes. He is teleported
to an alien ship, which is owned by a strange man called
the Collector, who captures heroes from all over the
galaxies and imprisons them. He intends to eventually
make them all fight one another to see who is the mightiest.
Back on Eternia, Man-At-Arms traces He-Man's whereabouts,
and teleports himself to the ship. He breaks past the
Collector's robotic servant, and frees He-Man, who in
turn frees the other captives. The Collector flees,
and the heroes return to their own worlds, then He-Man
and Man-At-Arms return to Eternia.
Questions about Two Bad and Skeletor and Hordak's homeworlds
feature on this issue's letters page.
Story 2: "Taming the Dragons"
Prince Adam and Man-At-Arms have been visiting a nomadic
tribe who have been attacked by dragons. Just then,
the dragons attack the Nomads' camp. The arrogant chief
forces Adam to fight the dragons, but Adam is sprayed
by hypno-mist, which causes him to wander through the
desert like a zombie, eventually collapsing. Elsewhere
in the desert, Skeletor is planning to take the dragons
for himself. Prince Adam is found lying uncsonscious
in the desert, just as a nomad comes and tells the chief
that the camp was attacked by a skeleton riding a giant
mechanical spider. Adam sneaks off and becomes He-Man,
and finds Skeletor, who has stolen the dragons. He-Man
defeats both Skeletor and the dragons.
Story 3: "Demon Attack"
Prince Ter'ryl from the Kingdom of the Outer Lands is
visiting Eternia, and Orko is trying to show off his
magic to him. But he accidentally opens up a hole in
space, which sucks up him and the Prince, while a demon
called Krrylak emerges from a second hole. He goes to
Grayskull and attacks the Sorceress, imprisoning her
in his orb of darkness. His demon horde then attacks
Eternos, but Skeletor spies what is happening, and realises
that if Krrylak wins, Skeletor will fall against his
power. Therefore he has no choice but to help the heroic
warriors. Meanwhile, He-Man uses a Lode-stone to make
his sword magnetic, so it attracts Krrylak's metal ring,
and the Sorceress is freed, and she transports Krrylak
and his warriors back to their homeworld, just as Orko
and Prince Ter'ryl re-emerge on Eternia.
(Another average issue. "The Mightiest Warrior"
is the best story here, bearing a resemblance in plot
to the cartoon episode "Castle of Heroes.")
