    In this episode we see a powerful magician named Montiek, who once was an ally of Skeletor. Montiek has captured an army of former evil villains that were once the most powerful beings on the universe. Some of them are Blackbeard the Pirate and the Mighty Hannibal along with his elephant.

    Montiek as heard of a man who is stronger than any living mortal and wants him in his army, He-Man. Montiek fools He-Man into thinking that there is a giant destroying his village and felds in Polonia, but really it is a test to see if He-Man is worthy enough to be in his army.

    Eventually He-Man with Orko, figures out that there is no giant and knows of Montiek's plan to capture him. He-Man takes Montiek down and lets all the former soldiers out of the dome where they were trapped.

    Meanwhile when all of this is happening, Skeletor is hoping Montiek will capture He-Man so that he can finally rule Eternia. But he knows He-Man can pass any of the tests and won't be easy to capture.

    The final moral of the episode is History.... There were famous people long ago and were very real. History is like a great adventure story and really happened as Prince Adam put it.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The moral of this episode is History. There were famous people long ago and they were very real. People we read about in history books led pretty exciting lives. History is like a great adventure story and the best part is that it really happened.

    • This is one of the few episodes to shed any insight into Skeletor's past, revealing he was once a member of a universal council of evil.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Prince Adam: Orko certainly had an exciting lesson in history today. Of course chances are most of you won't have the same opportunity to meet any of those famous people who lived long ago, but even so remember that just like you they were very real. For the most part, the people we read about in history books lead pretty exciting lives. And that's why to me history is like, well it's like a great adventure story. And the best part is that it really happened. Well, see you soon.

    • Skeletor: Impressive you boob, that was spectacular. Your army is nothing without He-Man.
      Clawful: And you are everything without him
      Skeletor: You are right, once Montiek takes He-Man away, Eternia will be mine for the taking.

    • Skeletor: (referring to He-Man) He'll know what to do. HE ALWAYS KNOWS WHAT TO DO!!
