Ileena and her father Zicran have traveled to Eternia to demonstrate the Transmutator. Teela and Ileena decide to go for a ride on horseback, just as Orko warns them that Jarvan has escaped from the prison mines. In the Geyser Field Jarvan keeps Teela and Ileena away by starting the geysers that knock Teela unconscious. He-Man and Battle Cat race to aid Ileena and Teela. Jarvan sees a weakness in Ileena and uses her to get to the Transmutator, by making her dependent on a drug. Disguised he gives her a ring with which to summon him, and a potion which makes her feel good. Ileena takes Adam out in her father's Air-Car, and ends up nearly killing him and herself in the process. Jarvan won't give Ileena any more potion until she hands him the Transmutator. She does so, but is shocked when Jarvan appears in true form. He-Man fights Jarvan and the Transmutator and wins. Ileena summons Jarvan back to the Royal Palace where he tries to escape, but she captures him.
