Orko has transformed himself into a toadstool by mistake
in this issue's comedy strip.
Story 1: "The Fastest Laser-Gun on Eternia"
He-Man and Sy-Klone are investigating a fallen meteor,
when they are attacked by a gunslinger. He-Man knocks
him back with his sword, and they ask him which evil
army he is working for- but then they notice a badge
on his chest, which shows he is a member of the Starband
Marshalls. He tells them that his name is Rio Blast
and he is the last of the Starband Marshalls. His world
was smashed by a meteor, just as he was working in an
Astro-Jail. A small chunk of the meteor hit him, and
knocked him onto Eternia. He says he only attacked He-Man
and Sy-Klone because he was confused. He tells them
he believes that Horde Prime who attacked the Starband
by sending the meteor, so he decides to stay with the
heroic warriors to strike back at Horde Prime.
This issue's letters page features an interesting one
from one of the reader's mothers, wanting to see more
stories about the everyday life on Eternia- once again,
proves that MOTU is more than a kids' thing!
Story 2: "Spring-time for Skeletor"
A green, rabbit-like creature lands on Eternia, to bring
spring to the planet. When Skeletor sees him trying
to make the land around Snake Mountain bloom with flowers,
he gets Spikor and Two Bad to capture him, and shouts
at him for vandalizing his land. The spring creature
says he is expected at Eternos, so Skeletor makes him
lead him back to his ship, and board it, forcing his
captive to fly it for him. At Eternos, the ship lands,
Skeletor emerges and freezes Randor, Teela, and Man-At-Arms
with a freeze spell. Adam sneaks off and becomes He-Man,
then the spring creature gives him some seeds to sow,
that trap Skeletor and his warriors in flower stems.
The spring creature then uses an egg to destroy the
freeze spell, Skeletor flees, and then the spring creature
leaves to see to other worlds.
Story 3: "Comet Catastrophe"
A comet has crashed on Eternia, and the heroic warriors
are trying to help people who were affected by the comet.
Inside a tall tower, they find a scientist called Mikar,
who is working on a serum which gives the user incredible
mind-power. Skeletor has heard about it, and wants it
for himself, so he attacks the tower- but is very angry
when he sees He-Man inside! So he blasts He-Man with
his staff, then engulfs the tower in molten lava. But
He-Man, Extendar and Snout Spout help to save the day.
Story 4: "Two Bad's Master Game"
A one-page comedy strip starring Two Bad. Two Bad's
heads are playing Blocker (the Eternian version of chess)
with one another, (arguing of course) and Webstor comes
in to boast about how good he is at the game, then Beast
Man introduces an interesting new Blocker player...
