Story 1: "The Finding of Viper Tower"
With the power of the Magna-snakes (from the previous
issue) King Hiss has the power to recover Viper Tower.
At the location where Viper Tower was sunk into the
ground by the Elders, the Magna-Snakes clear away the
soil in the ground. But Mantenna is spying on the Snake
Men, and reports to Hordak. Back at Viper Tower, King
Hiss is about to use the eye of the serpent to raise
the building to the ground. Just then, they are attacked
by Hordak, but King Hiss quickly dives down and fits
the eye of the serpent in the power house, raising the
tower to the ground and scattering the Horde members!
(Continued in next issue)
The letters this time include one of He-Man's many female
fans, asking if it is okay for girls to read MOTU! The
reply is that MOTU is for anyone who loves great stories.
Story 2: "Sense of Danger"
He-Man, Moss Man and Orko are in the woods to investigate
a strange magic source that Orko has detected. Several
obscure-looking creatures drop out of the sky, and attack
the heroes. As He-Man carefully observes them, he notices
that the creatures represent the five senses. So they
defeat the creatures by using their senses against them.
As the creatures lie on the ground, He-Man, knowing
it is impossible for living organisms to survive with
just one sense, suspects that the creatures are all
part of one large creature, so he gets the warriors
to put them together. He is right, as the large creature,
who can separate his senses as they wear out, tells
them that he was knocked apart as he entered the dimensional
gate. He had been transported to Eternia by accident,
when trying out a new magic spell. He borrows some of
Orko's magic, to help him teleport back to his homeworld.
Story 3: "Secret Files of Scrollos- The First Masters!"
This secret files feature explains how He-Man got the
masters of the universe together. The origins of Orko,
Battle Cat, and Stratos are all explained here.
This issue's pin up is none other than Stonedar, leader
of the Rock Warriors!
(Yet another great issue. The stories about the rise
of the Snake Men on present day Eternia are excellent,
and have great continuity- well, the comic in general
had great continuity!)
