    Plot - From his base on the planet Luvan, Zaygon attempts to destroy the Herculoids' planet by launching a series of missile attacks upon it. The Herculoids travel to Luvan to stop the attacks.

    Herculoids in trouble - none

    Special artistic mention - winged robot sentries

    Dishonorable plot mention - Zandor deduces from metal found in the missile fragments that it was launched from Luvan, the only source for the metal. However, he ignores the possibilities that the metal could have been mined on one planet, that the missile could have been manufactured on another planet, and that it could have been launched from a third planet. Finally, for a planet which can mine metal, use it to build missiles, and launch the missiles to another planet, Luvan has surprisingly few beings ready to resist the Herculoids' counterattack. Zaygon could learn a lot from the Mutoids. In his home planet, he could only muster himself, one assistant, and six winged robot sentries to defend against the Herculoids. In addition, he could only launch one pitiful missile at a time. Never coming close to hitting the Herculoids' treehouse home, the missile's only apparent impact was to create blemishes on the surface of the planet, missing major population centers and fault lines. However, notwithstanding having one of the lamest villains in the series, the action was still reasonably good.

    Grade - B-moreless
