Feature Story 1: "Into the Volcano" (English translation of the German comic "Im Schlund der Vulkanhölle" from Ehapa)
At Castle Grayskull, Zoar returns from a mission, seriously wounded. She becomes the Sorceress again, and explains that Hordak has found out that she is Zoar, and has fired an arrow at her made of black alder wood, a material which can harm her. Only Tronyx, the Stone of Life, can heal her, but it is held within Fire Mountain, and Hordak is heading there for the stone. Adam and Cringer become He-Man and Battle Cat and set off for the stone, with some other warriors. Meanwhile, Hordak and King Hiss, who for unknown reasons are working together, are using a Lavaton Machine to tunnel inside the mountain. (Cont'd in next part)
A question on this fortnight's letters page asks if Skeletor was ever a man. The answer is that "Skeletor has always been the nasty, bony object that he is today".
Feature Story 2: "Into the Volcano", Cont'd
Having spied the heroic warriors approaching, King Hiss and Hordak send their warriors after them. He-Man fends some of them off, and Orko creates noises which frighten others off.

Feature Story 3: "Secret Files of Scrollos: Grizzlor"
The origin of Grizzlor. It explains that Grizzlor comes from a jungle world named Jungulia, on the outer edge of the spiral arm of the N24 galaxy. By the age of 428, Grizzlor had developed a savege anger that shocked his family. One day in a cave he found a box which contained incredibly powerful weapons. Grizzlor saw them as toys, and played with them that way, but they terrified his family and friends! When in orbit over Jungulia, Horde Prime's Sata-Spies detected Grizzlor and mistook him for a powerful evil warrior, and reported him to Horde Prime, who decided the warrior should be recruited into Hordak's Horde. He contacts Hordak and orders him to go to Jungulia. He does so, and when orbiting above, he beams aboard Grizzlor and wipes away all memories of Jungulia from his mind. He was impressed by the weapons Grizzlor had, and believed that Grizzlor had a huge mental genius! Of course, he was later to find that Grizzlor was a totally useless warrior!
