Sword against stone.

Issue four of the UK Masters of the Universe comic features one of the often-forgotten ideas for Prince Adam's transformation into He-Man. In some of the earliest canons it was stated that Prince Adam would have to strike the Sword of Power against stone in order to transform into He-Man. In this panel we can see that the text above the illustration states that his sword was struck against stone; one of the few times the UK comic acknowledged this.

Neat illustration! Wonder what Prince Adam would do in a crisis while out to sea (Ex. "Search for the VHO"/"City Beneath The Sea") ... Sorry, couldn't help that one. :) I get a kick out of phrase, "Innocent Looking Sword," too ... Is there any other kind?! :)
Thanks for reading! God Bless!
