UK MOTU Comic Magazine Canon:
Hordak and Leech destroy the magic orb of the Cat-Niks, in their small village. Hordak enslaves the Cat-Niks, forcing them to build him a new, flying, solar-powered fortress. He uses it to attack Castle Grayskull, which was being guarded by He-Man, Mekaneck and Sy-Klone. A mighty air struggle follows, and the three Heroic Warriors combine their powers to fend off Hordak, and free the Cat-Niks. The Cat-Niks return to their village and use the solar power fortress they built, as their new power source.
