Story 1: "My Friend No More"
This is the greatest story ever to be printed in this
comic series. Two young athletes, called Theydon and
Doodon, are running in an important race, and are way
ahead of the other runners. Suddenly, Doodon slips and
falls into some quicksand. Theydon dives forward to
rescue him- and loses the race as he does so. Doodon
is grateful for how his friend gave up the race to save
his life. But just then, Leech and Modulok spring out
and capture them both, dragging them to the Fright Zone.
Hordak subjects them to his evil experiments, and turns
them both into new warriors for his Horde- Extendar
and Dragstor. But Extendar has somehow retained control
of his mind, and so he assumes the same has happened
for Dragstor. In the night, he wakes Dragstor up, telling
him they must contact the heroic warriors- but his heart
is broken when he sees that Dragstor has been turned
evil after all, as he summons Hordak. Extendar escapes
from the Fright Zone- but Hordak sends Dragstor after
him..... (cont'd in next story) Puzzle Instead of the
master mail, this issue features a puzzle taken from
one of the activity books- you have to help the Sorceress
through a maze to Grayskull.
story 2: "Battle of the Fright Zone" (Cont'd
from previous story)
Dragstor uses his incredible speed to catch up with
Extendar, and begins to fight him- but Extendar can
not bring himself to fight back, knowing that Dragstor
should be his friend. Luckily, Buzz-Off sees them fighting,
and he deals with Dragstor by picking him up and throwing
him into a river. Dragstor retreats back to the Fright
Zone, and Buzz-Off, intrigued by what Extendar tells
him of Dragstor's hold over him, takes him to the royal
palace to see Man-At-Arms. Extendar tells Man-At-Arms
his story, and Man-At-Arms guesses that Hordak's experiment
didn't work on him because his mind was too moved by
how Dragstor had saved his life. Back at the Fright
Zone, Dragstor has returned, and when he tells Hordak
that Extendar has escaped, Hordak realises that Extendar
will tell the heroic warriors about his equipment, and
so he teleports it to an underwater dome, guarded by
sea demons. Just then, He-Man and Extendar arrive at
the Fright Zone, hoping to find the equipment to change
Dragstor back to normal. They fail to find the laboratory,
but He-Man uses his sword to tell him where the equipment
is hidden. So they leave the Fright Zone, and dive into
the sea, where He-Man forms an air bubble with his sword
to keep them safe. They reach the dome- but Extendar
gets a shock when he sees that Hordak has left Dragstor
to guard it, knowing that the warriors would not endanger
Dragstor! There seems to be no way they can smash the
dome open without detsroying Dragstor..... (cont'd in
story 3: "Dome of Doom"
He-Man uses his sword to fend off the sea creatures
surrounding the glass dome. Then they make their way
closer in the air bubble, and try to think of a way
to get inside without harming Dragstor. But an evil
fish that is watching them goes and reports to its master,
Mer-Man, who reads its mind and decides to destroy He-Man
before he can accomplish his task. He summons a huge
army of sea demons, and sets them on the glass dome.
They smash through, endangering Dragstor! But Extendar
stretches out one arm, and pulls Dragstor inside the
bubble, just as the sea demons start to steal the machinery.
He-Man gets the bubble back to the surface to get Extendar
and Dragstor safe back on land, then he goes back after
Mer-Man to destroy the equipment. He-Man defeats Mer-Man's
sea creatures, as Extendar just manages to keep control
of Dragstor. He-Man is then about to destroy the machinery,
but Mer-Man does the job for him, believing that He-Man
still wants to use it. Mer-Man escapes, thinking he
has beaten He-Man, and He-Man returns to the surface.
They attempt to hold onto Dragstor, but he escapes back
to the Fright Zone. Extendar vows to never rest until
he has freed his friend from Hordak's curse, so He-Man
welcomes him to the masters of the universe.
