While the Widgets gather to celebrate the launch of the Coridite reactor that will power Eternia, one among them, Smudge, has taken to the carnival pleasures of a trickster named Melbrag. Eventually, Melbrag dupes Smudge into gambling away a sample of Coridite. Smudge replaces the lost Coridite with a sample from the mines, but a recent flood has turned the Coridite radioactive by introducing the chemical Selenium. He-Man pursues Melbrag and destroys the lost Coridite, then returns to the celebration and throws the nuclear reactor into space before its contaminated Coridite makes it explode.
