Snakes Alive!

Plot: Kobra Khan leads Skeletor into hidden caves deep below Snake Mountain. There they free the Snake Men. King Hiss doesn't want to subordinate himself below Skeletor, but Kobra Khan advises him to follow his orders fornow and to rebel later. The snakes go out to find He-Man. Instead they kidnap Cringer. He-Man, Orko, Snout Spout and Rio Blast go after them. He-Man and Orko arrive at Snake Mountain first where Terror Claws Skeletor is already waiting for them. They fight, but the Snake Men with Cringer show up. Their intention is to make He-Man wild enough to kill Skeletor. But instead, He-Man frowns and Skeletor grabs the power sword with his Snap Dragon. Skeletor orders his once again obeying underlings to kill He-Man and scout the area. After it didn't look so good at first, Snout Spout and Rio Blast finally beat the crap out of King Hiss and Kobra Khan. Orko gets the sword back from the confused Skeletor who suddenly finds himself all on his own and beams away.

Besides, this is an average comic. Kind of a 'buddie movie' with Snout Spout and Rio Blast in the lead. And it's another story of how the Snake Men came back. Very similar to the minicomic, with the difference that Kobra Khan isn't a spy from Skeletor here, but a rebel against him!
