She knows the secret, too?

In the 1986 Masters of the Universe Annual one of the more unique stories is "Silvanos Threatened". Firstly we meet King Randor's cousin King Sullei, the hot-headed ruler of Silvanos. His sister appears later in the story; an elderly lady with an incredible inner-strength named the Prophetess. In the story it is revealed that the Prophetess is old friends with the Sorceress, and most strikingly of all, that she also knows that He-Man and Prince Adam are one and the same! Although this annual suffers, due to some odd-looking artwork throughout, this story is the book's saving grace.

On this occasion, He-Man looks effeminate and The Prophetess has a masculine looking face!

I remember this story well, it was definitely the best in that particular annual. I like the idea that there are wise folk and important mages throughout Eternia who are silently aware of He-Man's secret.

I have this annual, and you are correct that while the art is not the best, it did have some very interesting stories :-)
