Synopsis and PreviewEdit
[Spoilers Begin]The Sorceress of Greyskull is awoken with visions, and summons Prince Adam to travel through a magical portal and deliver a magic sword to someone he will find on the other side. Traveling to the world of Etheria, Adam and his companion Cringer find themselves in the middle of a war between the Evil Horde and a band of freedom fighters. Transforming into He-Man , Adam helps the freedom fighters but is capured in battle by a woman called Force Captain Adora .
While Hordak , the evil leader of the Horde, drains the strength from He-Man and his other captives through magical devices, Adora is awakened by the magic sword that was sent with He-Man. The Sorceress speaks through it, revealing that Adora is actually the twin sister of Prince Adam, and that she had been kidnapped as a baby and brainwashed by Hordak's magical servent Shadow Weaver . The magic sword allows Adora to transform into She-Ra, and she rescues He-Man and brings him back to the freedom fighters in order to continue the war and defeat the Hoarde.
