Story 1: "Into the Volcano"
At Castle Grayskull, Zoar returns from a mission, seriously
wounded. She becomes the Sorceress again, and explains
that Hordak has found out that she is Zoar, and has
fired an arrow at her made of black alder wood, a material
which can harm her. Only Tronyx, the Stone of Life,
can heal her, but it is held within Fire Mountain, and
Hordak is heading there for the stone. Adam and Cringer
become He-Man and Battle Cat and set off for the stone,
with some other warriors. Meanwhile, Hordak and King
Hiss, who for unknown reasons are working together,
are using a Lavaton Machine to tunnel inside the mountain.

A question on this fortnight's letters page asks if
Skeletor was ever a man. The answer is that "Skeletor
has always been the nasty, bony object that he is today".
Story 2: "Into the Volcano", Cont'd
Having spied the heroic warriors approaching, King Hiss
and Hordak send their warriors after them. He-Man fends
some of them off, and Orko creates noises which frighten
others off. There is a battle between He-Man, Orko and
Hordak and King Hiss, resulting in fire mountain exploding,
but the crystal is safe and is used to save the Sorceress.
Story 3: "Secret Files of Scrollos: Grizzlor"
The origin of Grizzlor. It explains that Grizzlor comes
from a jungle world named Jungulia, on the outer edge
of the spiral arm of the N24 galaxy. By the age of 428,
Grizzlor had developed a savege anger that shocked his
family. One day in a cave he found a box which contained
incredibly powerful weapons. Grizzlor saw them as toys,
and played with them that way, but they terrified his
family and friends! When in orbit over Jungulia, Horde
Prime's Sata-Spies detected Grizzlor and mistook him
for a powerful evil warrior, and reported him to Horde
Prime, who decided the warrior should be recruited into
Hordak's Horde. He contacts Hordak and orders him to
go to Jungulia. He does so, and when orbiting above,
he beams aboard Grizzlor and wipes away all memories
of Jungulia from his mind. He was impressed by the weapons
Grizzlor had, and believed that Grizzlor had a huge
mental genius! Of course, he was later to find that
Grizzlor was a totally useless warrior!
