Description

"Legends tell that in ancient Eternia the warlord Dyr fashioned a mighty weapon called Sunbird.

With it, he sought to overthrow the Counfil of Elders and claim Eternia for his own.

But his plan was thwarted and the terrible Sunbird was dismantled into four separate components. Each section was taken to a different corner of Eternia and hidden forever from man and other races alike..."

But in present day Skeletor has found proof of the existence of the Sunbird and employs his mystic powers to send magic probes as well as his Evil Warriors to find this ultimate weapon. But this does not go unnoticed by the Sorceress who warns He-man and summons him to Castle Grayskull with great haste.

There he is shown in the Crystal of the Elders, the sum collective of their knowledge, what an immense danger to all of Eternia the Sunbird is. He-man informs the King and Queen of Eternos, along with Stratos and other representatives of Eternia, but before plans can be made the meeting is interrupted by a wounded bird-man informing Stratos that Avion is under siege!

Evil Lyn atop an Ice-Dragon is decimating the kingdom, and Stratos must hurry to the aid of his kin.

He-man excuses him and dispatches Teela, Man-At-Arms and himself to find the components of Sunbird. The desperate work of the Heroic Warriors are futile however, as the Evil Warriors need only touch the 4 components for them to be teleported into Skeletors hands, and soon all of the components are assembled...

Sunbird lives again!!

Skeletor immediately starts the launch and the weapon of all weapons take off, it's target: Eternos! He-man makes a last ditch desperate attempt to stop it, jumping trough the fire and smoke from Sunbirds thrusters, battling the wind and chill of the high altitude, finally reaching the Sunbirds control panel, ripping it off, and disarming the weapon, causing it to crash with himself still attached to it!

But when the dust cleares, the champion of Eternia still lives, his powers having been just great enough to endure the power of gravity and intertia.

The artwork is very uneven in this book, which should perhaps be expected since it employs 3 different illustrators. Master-illustrator SUPREME, Earl Norem handles the cover-duties and does so with an almost UNBELIEVABLE skill, producing one of the greatest visuals in the history of the Masters of the Universe.

Although the interior-illustrators Gonzales and Carrillo sometimes do a decent job, they seem almost puny in comparrison, after such an opening. Some pages have obvious problems with both anatomy and perspective, but there is equally as many moody and striking illustrations as well.
