Star's first relatively coherent storyline, Adam realizes
that he is sick of being He-Man because he has to act
so irresponsibly all the time as Adam to keep his secret.
He reasons that, because there are so many heroes now,
he is not needed. He decides that he will return the
sword to the Sorceress the following day, but he doesn't
get a chance, since Skeletor invades the palace and
takes Man-At-Arms and him prisoner. Skeletor then sets
up a device that will detonate upon detection of He-Man's
brainwave pattern, sending him 30 years into the future.
Adam's thoughts start the clock and he barely has enough
time to throw his sword at the bomb to stop it. Unfortunately,
the bomb takes the sword into the future. Man-At-Arms
uses a device to send Adam into the future to retrieve
the sword, but Adam must keep a homing device so he
can return. He arrives to find that Skeletor has captured
Eternia and He-Man is no more. After finding his various
friends dead or captured, he comes across Adam, his
future self, leading a resistance against Skeletor.
Along with him is Teela, who has become the Sorceress,
Andras, who has become Man-At-Arms, and Clamp Champ.
In the middle of town, he finds He-Man's tombstone,
put there by Skeletor to rob hope from the people. Adam,
however, has a plan...
