Action-packed panels!

The Masters of the Universe minicomic "The Battle of Roboto" featured an amazing amount of panels on each and every page. Even more astounding was the fact that these panels were often highly-detailed and full of action! This brief action sequence featuring He-Man, Skeletor, and Two-Bad shows just how action-packed they were. And believe it or not, there are more panels to be found on this page of action! I just removed them to focus on these ones.

Two Bad argues amongst himself like he does in "A Christmas Special." :) In the image of Two Bad attempting to capture He-Man, He-Man makes a face like he does in the close-up shot from "Colossor Awakes," when Skeletor attempts to push He-Man out of The Collector! Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)

Aside from the artwork, there are two great things about this sequence - Two Bad being presented as a more threatening villain (even though He-Man deals with him with ease), and He-Man & Skeletor sword fighting - Skeletor wielding what looks like the Power Sword even though this mini-comic owes a lot to Filmation ideas and continuity! :)

Yeah, nice action in that comic. But He-Man's battle is nothing compared to Teela's struggle against Roboto who nearly even killed her! Worth mentioning is also Skeletor pink bat at the beginning, which seemed weird since one would've expected such a creature shown in a Horde comic.

Hey hey, Two Bad uses his signature move, the Two Bad hug! Wouldn't it have been nice if Mattel had named the action features and then mentioned them in the mini-comics and cartoon. Some of them might have become part of mainstream pop culture slang by now.

Probably the only time in the entire run in the 80's that Two-Bad was given the treatment he deserved! He's my favorite of Skeletor's warriors and seeing him attack he-man head on w no hesistation is badass!! Two-Bad needs more appearances period!!
