UK. Issue #58,
Instead of the Orko the Magician strip, which had been
getting rather dull and unfunny of late, this issue
begins with a pin-up of Tri-Klops spying on He-Man and
Story 1: "Power Play"
The heroic warriors are about to prepare for the Contest
of Champions, a series of games which take place every
ten years, giving the winning team the right to rule
Eternia. The heroic warriors are (surprise!) set to
compete against Skeletor and the evil warriors. But
right from the start of the contest, Skeletor's warriors
and vehicles are proving more powerful than the heroes!
The warriors are confused as to why He-Man isn't present,
not realising that he is... but in the form of Adam,
wanting to see how the warriors fare without his help!
But at this moment, things sure look in favor of the
evil warriors... (cont'd in next part)
This fortnight's master mail features a question from
Graham Clark about whether Ram-Man can remove his helmet.
The obscure answer is "What? Do impressions of
his helmet? Only joking, Graham. Yes, Ram Man can take
off his helmet... but it wouldn't be wise to do so when
he is about to butt something!" Like, duh.
Story 2: "Power Play" Cont'd
Skeletor starts to cheat as he fights against Man-At-Arms
in the contest, by using magic. He is just about to
win the games, so Adam sneaks off... Skeletor sits on
Panthor in the center of the arena for moment after
moment... until the judge reluctantly decides he must
give the crown of Eternos to Skeletor. But just then,
He-Man springs into the arena on Battle Cat, and he
and Skeletor engage in a huge battle! He-Man wins, and
Randor is allowed to retain rule of Eternia!
Story 3: "Secret Files of Scrollos: The Story of
Teela, part 2"
Continued from the previous issue. Teela is struggling
in the clutches of the demon, when He-Man comes and
saves her at the last moment, and Skeletor flees. He-Man
then points out that the jewel Skeletor wore round his
neck must be connected with the new powers he boasted
about... but since He-Man wasn't present when Skeletor
said that, but Prince Adam was, Teela starts to become
suspicious! He-Man quickly disparages her suspicions
by saying that Adam had contacted him and told him everything.
They go down to the library and use the computer to
find exactly what Skeletor is using. He-Man finds that
Skeletor has the Gomon Gem, with a power that can only
be stopped by the sound of seven bells ringing at once.
So they go to the Vault of Vargonis, where there are
seven bells, and find that Skeletor is already there,
expecting them! He is about to use his staff to smash
the towers into fragments, but He-Man and Teela use
their fists to shake the ground, ringing the bells and
shattering the gem. Skeletor retreats, and He-Man congratulates
Teela, saying that she deserves a promotion for her
idea to punch the ground. Teela says that hopefully
it will mean she won't have to look after Prince Adam
any more. He-Man is saddened, and so after the promotion,
he goes to Grayskull to ask the Sorceress if he can
tell Teela his secret. Sadly, the Sorceress says the
Elders have decided that Teela can not know the secret,
but assures He-Man that she is also sad that Teela can
not yet know that she is her real mother.
Play" is pretty good since you get to see so many
warriors in action, and the concluding part of Teela's
origin is also excellent.)
