While Eternia is in celebration, Evil-Lyn plans to take control of Grayskull. Realizing that Skeletor is a failure, she travels to Etheria to meet up with Hordak, instead. He betrays her, so she disappears and he decides to take control of Grayskull himself. Soon a dimensional gate opens and Hordak emerges, riding the Mantisaur. He confronts Grayskull, but the Rock People who guard it stand ready to defend the castle. They prove to be no match for Hordak, who imprisons them in a mystic cage. He-Man, piloting the Wind Raider, attacks Hordak, but the Mantisaur summons swarms of insects to distract He-Man. Hordak, using the hurricane mace to fly, knocks He-Man to the ground. Hordak recovers the Power Sword, but it has its own will and destroys his hurricane mace. Evil-lyn then frees the Rock People, who capture Hordak. Soon after, he is sent back to Etheria.English/German/Italian/French quadrilingual version in Europe:
