"Battle of the Cats" #1

One of my favorite stories from the UK Masters of the universe comic has always been "Battle of the Cats" which appeared in issue thirty-four. The idea of Beast Man using his powers to control Cringer had been addressed in the episode "A Beastly Sideshow"; Beast Man stating that he was unable to gain control of the creature. However, the UK comic decided that Beast Man could control Cringer, leading to this unique story. One of the most interesting aspects of this story is the fact that Panthor has the ability to talk. Something I often muse over, as in the animated series Panthor witnessed Prince Adam transform into He-Man in "No Job too Small". For the time being, enjoy this exciting story. Here are the first five pages...

Maybe Panthor doesn't tell Skeletor because ol' skullface keeps giving his pet bad food!

Beast-Man's opening line is the same as Prince Adam's from the "Golden Disks of Knowledge" episode. :) Until Two Bad showed up, this story reminded me of a Season One He-Man episode, on account of the way that Skeletor and Beast Man interact with each other! Beast Man's insult towards Cringer, after he is captured by the villains, is hilarious too. :) Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)
