It's just too bad that Tri-Klops saw the crash as well and after fighting Man-At-Arms, where he got a lucky shot in, our hero was brought to Hordak to be tortured by the mystical Slime Pit............which holds a bit of nostalgia for me because it's partly due to this playset that I wasn't allowed to play with slime as a kid.......... I guess instructions back then didn't say "don't put slime on cat" or "don't put slime in VCRs." The Slime Pit makes people become mindless slaves and I guess after Skeletor told Hordak to suck it by shoving a sword into his chest, he decided to put Man-At-Arms to work in bringing him the blood of He-Man.
After this flashback, we move into the present where Teela has rescued She-Ra from Despondos, thanks to the magical connection that Adora has with Swift Wind and now that our Princess of Power is back on the game board, we just might have a chance to see our heroes win this war........ That is if they ever catch a break. Yeah, instead of Teela and She-Ra regrouping with the soldiers of Eternia and maybe resting and coming up with a plan of attack, they're confronted by the recently Sorceress-ed up Evil-Lyn, who seems determined to bring on the Age of Horokoth. Teela gets She-Ra and Swift Wind to fly off in hopes of finding Adam, while she takes on Evil-Lyn, Sorceress e Sorceress.
In the end, we head back to where we left off in the previous issue and see Man-At-Arms, playing the role of War Wraith going up against King Hiss, playing the role of King Adam. Yeah, nobody's who they're supposed to be in this title anymore, but that's half the fun of it because I never thought that any of this could ever happen and seeing it is some kind of awesome. Anyway, after a long monologue about how much Duncan actually hates Adam for his weakness, Duncan gets the shock of his life when he gets the King Hiss multiple snake attack and goes down.......... but hopefully not dead and our issue closes with King Hiss writhing in pain even though he won the fight because it appears that somehow King Adam has survived his ingestion from the former ruler of the Snake-Men.
That's it for this issue of He-Man: The Eternity War and this is an awesome issue because of everything that it gives us. Yeah, I'm a fan of a straight forward type story, but here we get caught up on a whole bunch of things that have been lingering for awhile. We've got She-Ra out of Despondos and back in action, the mystery of what happened to Man-at-Arms solved and a revelation that King Adam is still alive and fighting...........which is pretty obvious for a title called He-Man, but I've seen so much from this series so far that I never expected, I wouldn't put it past these creators to kill off our title character, at least for a little. My biggest complaint is She-Ra getting under used because of how powerful she is and now that she's needed again, having a very simple resolution to get her out of Despondos and back in the game. Really, though it's a bunch of epicness after epicness and I don't know which story I should be more excited for because it's all off the wall awesome. Like the story, the art is strong as hell....... like most readers of this series have come to expect and I can't wait to see what comes next.
