Princess of Power Magazine
Issue #3, Summer 1986.
extra large "Dear She-Ra" section (2 pages,
plus an extra column on a third) kicks off the summer
edition of the magazine. From Washington state to British
Columbia, the well-wishes and inspired fan-art just
keep coming! A 10-year-old Massachusetts girl wishes
that She-Ra could come to visit her, but understandingly
realizes how busy she is on Etheria. "The Best
of Summer" news section features an article on
Dolph Lundgren, who is busy filming "Masters of
the Universe: The Motion Picture," due for release
in summer of 1987! Dolph is quoted as being "very
excited about this movie, it represents every actor's
dream -- to be the most powerful hero in the universe."
Thanks, Dolph. The article ends cryptically: "Look
for a feature on the lucky actress who wins the part
of She-Ra in the fall issue."
Story: "The Trouble with Teasing"
While relaxing at Crystal Falls, Mermista's placid mood
is broken by the interruption of Entrapta, there on
an errand for Catra. Entrapta and Mermista exchange
snide comments, Mermista eventually comparing Entrapta
to a sheep, blindly following Catra's orders without
a will of her own. This, apparently, cuts a bit too
close for Entrapta, who runs tattling to Catra. Catra
devises a scheme to teach Mermista some respect. Entrapta,
true to form, is all too eager to follow Catra's suggestion.
Later that afternoon, Mermista comes panicking to her
friends Adora and Peekablue. The pool beneath Crystal
Falls is being drained! Adora sends Mermista and Peekablue
back to the pool to search for clues, while she searches
the surrounding woods -- as She-Ra! At Crystal Falls,
Mermista and Peekablue are too busy searching for the
cause of the draining to notice Entrapta creeping up
on them until it's too late. Held tightly in Entrapta's
braids, proud Peekablue remains silent and calm, but
Mermista, watching the level of the water falling ever
lower, pleads with Entrapta to stop this, lest her fish
friends suffer. Entrapta merely laughs, enjoying watching
the mermaid squirm. Meanwhile, She-Ra has located Catra,
and the powerful pump which she is using to drain Crystal
Falls into another pond. She-Ra deals with Catra in
a simple but clever way, by placing her on Swift Wind's
back, and having him fly her away. She-Ra sets the pump
into reverse, then hurries to Crystal Falls. Seeing
the princess of power, and noticing the water level
rising again, Entrapta realizes the jig is up, and makes
a hasty retreat. Mermista calls after the departing
Entrapta, apologizing for teasing her earlier, and suggests
that she do her own thinking from now on. She-Ra agrees
that teasing only leads to trouble, and the three friends
settle back to enjoy the rest of the afternoon.
"The Drawing Board" shows how you, too, can
draw picture-perfect pictures of She-Ra, Loo-Kee, and
Catra, beginning with a circle, two dots, and a curved
Poster #4 is another scene of She-Ra, Perfuma, and Flutterina,
enjoying the picturesque gardens surrounding the Crystal
Castle. A petulant Catra and Entrapta linger in the
foreground, looking eager to start something. The other
poster in this issue is again a special project. A family
album poster, with guidelines for collecting and listing
genealogical information. Places for photographs, birthdays
and anniversaries, and even pet information are included.
In a rare cameo appearance, Eternia's King Randor and
Queen Marlena appear at the poster's top, shown looking
through a large book of royal family history with She-Ra
princess of power for this issue is Susie Mason of Adair,
Oklahoma. The 14-year old runs her own successful business,
selling home-grown vegetables from a roadside stand.
