In this issue's comedy strip, Orko tries a spell to
conjure up sea lions, but instead conjures up felines.
Story 1: "The Return of Man-E-Faces"
Man-At-Arms is in the process of inventing a new weapon
which will save Eternia from doom. But he must try to
make sure that the evil forces do not gain it, or Eternia
will be doomed. Outside the city wall, Man-E-Faces,
who is working for Skeletor, overhears what Man-At-Arms
is saying and goes to investigate further. Several weeks
later, Man-At-Arms has finished the machine, but it
has so much mass that it can not yet be launched into
orbit. Man-E-Faces overhears, and goes to report to
Skeletor. Orko follows him, and overhears a conversation
between Man-E and Skeletor. Orko returns to the palace
and tells Man-At-Arms that Skeletor has been using a
spell to read Man-E's mind, and get a mental image of
the machine so he can make a copy for himself. Adam
changes to He-Man, and he, Man-At-Arms and Orko take
Man-E to Grayskull. The Sorceress agrees to help them
and Orko thinks up a plan, which he shares with the
Sorceress as He-Man and Man-At-Arms leave for Snake
Mountain. (cont'd in next part)

Story 2: "The Return of Man-E-Faces", Cont'd
He-Man, Orko, Man-At-Arms, and some other warriors advance
on Snake Mountain, just as Hordak begins to attack it.
He has stolen a copy of the energy machine Skeletor
made. But Skeletor emerges and reveals he is aware of
Hordak's scheme, and that Hordak has forgotten the energy
core, without which the machine is useless. Skeletor
has a perfect copy, and he fires it, and the warriors
watch in horror, believing Eternia's downfall has come...
but Orko has taken care of everything, and instead the
machine is totally destroyed. Back at the palace, Orko
explains that he used his magic to interfere with the
mental waves Man-E-Faces was sending to Skeletor, which
made Skeletor press the wrong buttons, so the machine
exploded instead. Skeletor, therefore, has assumed the
machine was simply at fault. Next day Man-At-Arms fires
his rocket into space, to convert the blocked sun's
rays into usable light, and Eternia is saved.
