Feature Story 1: "The Defeat of He-Man"
Continued from "The Finding of Viper Tower" in the previous issue. As Viper Tower rises to the ground, Hordak knows he must destroy it before King Hiss regains the power to rule Eternia. He sends Dragstor towards the tower, but Dragstor is attacked by the Magna-snakes. Just then, He-man, Extendar and Rio Blast are patrolling nearby, when they hear the sounds of battle and rush towards them. As Hordak sees them approaching, he retreats, refusing to waste his power by fighting two armies at once. The Snake Men then catch the heroes in a venom shell! (Continued in next issue)
Questions on Mekaneck, Leech, and the Snake Men feature in this issue's master mail, along with a complaint about the comic's regular practice of putting posters on the other side of stories (always very annoying).
Feature Story 2: "The Third Moon"
He-Man and Moss Man are relaxing on the battlement of Grayskull, when they see something very strange in the sky- there are three moons! They decide to investigate, and take a star shuttle to the third moon. They find an odd structure on the moon, which turns out to be the head of a giant creature. They blast off again, and see that the whole moon is in fact a large bird-like creature, that was hybernating, and when it was curled up it looked like a moon. They return to Grayskull, and He-Man finishes off with a classic line taken from the classic movie "The Thing": "Keep watching the skies!"
Feature Story 3: "Monster in a Bottle"
Two traders, who make money from being swindlers, find a strange bottle amongst their stuff. When they open it, a strange creature emerges and appears to be about to attack them! But one of them wishes it was back in the bottle... and at that moment, it goes back in the bottle. They decide to sell the bottle to Hordak, who could make good use of the monster. But Hordak has already found out from Mantenna, who was spying on them, and he buys the bottle from them. He unleashes the monster upon He-Man, Teela and Mekaneck, but it turns out to be a friendly monster. Angrily, Hordak chases after the traders, but one of them holds a lucky charm, which causes Hordak to fall into a pit, so they can get away.
(An okay issue, but it's noticeable at this point that the comic is going through a stage of rather unattractive artwork...)
