Skeletor decides he wants the new Wind Raider Prince Adam is flying, Trap Jaw and Whiplash fire a freeze ray that crash it into the Misty Swamps. When Cringer's tail gets caught in the sinking Wind Raider, Adam transforms into He-Man and goes into the poisonous swamp water to rescue him. Cringer sets off a tree trap that captures himself
and He-Man, but He-Man is suddenly too weak from the swamp water he swallowed to defend himself.
A young boy named Drak and his grandfather find He-Man and Cringer and release them. The grandfather decides to take He-Man to the Healing Tree to restore his powers, but Drak thinks they should offer He-Man to Skeletor in exchange for riches. Skeletor pursues He-Man in the Collector, and he decides to send Whiplash, Trap Jaw and his Hunter Robots, in two separate parties, to find him. The Hunter Robots chase Cringer, pulling He-Man in a floating bed, across an old stone bridge that collapses. Meanwhile,
Skeletor raids the village to capture slaves for his mines.
When Drak and his grandfather see the burning remains of their home, Drak realizes the true nature of Skeletor's evil. Drak captures one of Skeletor's Hunter Robots and its homing signal leads Skeletor to him. While He-Man absorbs the powers of the Healing Tree, Drak distracts Skeletor by pretending to offer him He-Man, but Skeletor discovers it is really Cringer hiding under sheets. A revived He-Man saves them, brings down the Collector, and releases the villagers inside.
