Orko tries to help King Randor find his crown in this
issue's comedy strip.
Story 1: "The Flower of Life"
Teela is dying from a disease she picked up on a mission
to an alien world. He-Man has gone to find the rare
Flower of Life, the only thing that can cure her. Over
barren land, He-Man has found the flower and is speeding
back to Eternos in the Road Ripper. On the way, he comes
across the body of a man. He quickly puts time aside
to investigate, and finds that the man is still alive.
The man tells him he collapsed when looking for water,
and leads He-Man to his village, which he tells him
was destroyed. But as He-Man observes the village, the
man seizes He-Man's sword, and transforms into Hordak!
He-Man kicks the sword out of his hand- but then is
seized by the claws of the Monstroid!
An interesting question on this issue's letters page
asks if Prince Adam broke his leg, would He-Man also
be handicapped by that injury? The answer is that the
power of Grayskull would heal Adam's leg as he changed
Story 2: "The Flower of Life", Cont'd
The Monstroid flings He-Man over a cliff, but He-Man
uses his sword to stick into the side. He then makes
his way back up, and fends off the Hordesmen, then knocks
the Monstroid over the cliff. He then returns to Eternos,
and uses the flower to save Teela's life! She walks
in the royal garden, feeling well once again, thanking
He-Man for saving her.
Story 3: "Secret Files of Scrollos: Sy-Klone"
The much-requested origin of Sy-Klone finally features!
It explains that Sy-Klone was once an athelete called
Dash-Shel, who lived on the planet Snave, where he could
outrun the fastest robots of the planet! The one day,
Snave was attacked by the Horde, and Dash-Shel set about
thwarting their scheme to overtake the world. But he
was fatally injured in battle with the Horde, and almost
died- but his father, Thom-Shel, a brilliant scientist,
saved his life by making him into a super-powered cyborg
warrior called Sy-Klone! With his amazing new powers,
Sy-Klone blew up the Horde ship and rid Snave of the
Horde- but he learned of the battle going on on Eternia,
and bade farewell to his family and friends, and set
off for Eternia to help the heroic warriors against
the Horde! Since then he has become one of the greatest
of the heroic warriors, but hopes that someday he may
return to Snave.
very enjoyable issue. Sy-Klone is given a classic origin
story, depicting him as one of the most powerful and
energetic of all the warriors!)
