Kobra?

In the He-Man Ladybird book "A Trap For He-Man" the writer gives name to the snake-headed staff that Teela wields, Kobra. In this story Teela demonstrates its ability to fire blasts, communicate with the animals of Eternia, and contact other Heroic Warriors. This particular story seems to focus heavily on the powers that Teela possesses whilst in possession of her Kobra staff. It is actually a shame that other canons did not follow this minor plot point. I for one would have enjoyed seeing this take place in the cartoon at certain points. That said eventually She-Ra would possess the ability to talk to the animals of Etheria.

These were great powers, they show what she will be able to do in a lower level when she becomes the Sporceress (in some way) at least that's how I see it.
Too bad they only show up in this book.

Teela's whole personality was actually pretty different in the Ladybird books; she was shown to be a lot less hot-headed and more mystical, perhaps more like The Sorceress (who very rarely appeared in the Ladybird books). They definitely had a lot more focus on her as a mystical character, living up to the 'warrior goddess' tag that Mattel marketed her under.

Lets nor forget the great drawing of Beastman with an unconsience Teela slung over his shoulder! :)

Very beautiful illustration of Teela ... Her face is drawn similar to her cartoon version.

For me, Teela seemed more like the way she was portrayed in the cartoon ... I would have rather seen an episode where a completely new female guest character displayed such power, in the He-Man series ... Maybe a Zilora (From "The Time Corridor") look-alike or even a woman modeled after the Teela toy/comic character, with the armor included :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

Oh man I would have LOVED seeing this ability utilized in the cartoon.
The staff could have been used in many occasions and given Teela that extra bit of "special powers" :D
