Shooting Whiplash!

As I have said before "The Clash of Arms" minicomic is quite possibly one of the most violent stories ever told within the Masters of the Universe series, and yet it is one of my favorites because of the action! When He-Man enters the fight we all expect him to save Fisto; but not by shooting Whiplash in the face with a laser gun! This is not the He-Man from the Filmation cartoon, but this part of the minicomics line were higher in violence than most...

Err... he shot him in the chest.

You can say that again, James! Usually, He-Man would go for the "Pull the rug out from under them" trick (Ex: "Orko's New Friend"/"Secret Of The Sword"), instead. :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

'The Clash of Arms' is one of my favourite post-first to waves minicomics, for several reasons.

I too liked that it was a big rougher and tougher than what much of MOTU had become by that time (even though I could never get used to He-Man using a laser gun).

I also liked that much of the story focused away from He-Man; part of MOTU's appeal for me is it's wide and varied characters, and it was nice to see Fisto and a few others getting the spotlight for a change.
