She-Ra is actually Princess Adora,
the twin sister of Prince
Adam/ He-Man (Masters of the Universe).
She is the daughter of Queen
Marlena (originally from Earth) and
King Randor of Eternia. She was
born on Eternia, and was by Hordak.
Hordak took her to Etheria, and
raised her to become the Force
Captain of the evil Horde.
Adam later came to Etheria and
revealed her true identity to her.
She soon learned her other identity
as She-Ra and became leader of
the rebellion against the Horde as Adora.
is She-Ra Princess of Power?
She-Ra is a half-hour show that
was on the air from the fall of
1985 to the fall of 1986. Re-runs
played on the USA network during the
late 1980's/early 1990's. It was a
spin-off of the Masters of
the Universe show produced by
Filmation. There were 93 episodes in
all, and a toyline made by Mattel.

was She-Ra cancelled?
Apparently, Mattel was trying to
push Barbie in the 80's, and the
production of She-Ra stopped. Mattel
felt that the line was not
successful enough to continue production.
She-Ra ever be back on the air?
Maybe. It is looking a little
more hopeful. Hallmark now owns
the rights to both He-Man and
She-Ra. The shows are currently
aired in foreign countries that have
a Hallmark station. There are
many petitions on the web trying to
get the shows back on the air in the
United States on such networks as
the Cartoon Network and The Fox Family
did Adora say to transform into She-Ra?
"For the honor of Greyskull; I am
is the name of She-Ra's horse?
Like Adora/She-Ra, her horse had
two names. Adora's horse was named
Spirit, but when she transformed, her
horse became Swift Wind. Adora's horse
was really just a regular horse
that became a unicorn when he
were Adora/She-Ra's allies?
Adora/She-Ra fought with the
rebellion on Etheria for
freedom from Hordak's rule. Her most
well-known friends were
Bow, Glimmer, Angella (Glimmer's
mother), Castaspella, Double
Trouble, Frosta, Madame Razz, Broom,
Loo-Kee, Sweetbee, Peekablue,
Netossa, Spinerella, the
Twiggets, Light Hope, the Star
Sisters, and Mermista.
were some of their abilities?
Most of She-Ra's friends had
special powers or abilities. Here
are some of them:
Light Hope: He
is the guardian of the Crystal Castle and
a source of information for She-Ra.
Bow: He is an archery
expert. He has arrows with special
weapons inside of the
arrow-heads such as explosives.
Frosta:She is an Ice
Empress with the ability to freeze
objects and create snow.
Castaspella:She is a
very powerful magician.
Glimmer: She has some
telepathic abilities as well as an
arsenol of light powers given to her from
the moon crystal inside Castle
Angella: She has many of
the same powers that Glimmer does,
and she can fly.
She is a magician as well, but
her spells never seemed to work
right because she was so forgetful.
Broom: He is Madame
Razz's flying broom.
Netossa: She uses her
cape as a net to capture enemies.
SweetBee: She can make
honeycomb ladders and nets.
Peekablue: She uses her
feathers to look into far off
Flutterina: Flies and
changes into a butterfly
Perfuma: Create and
control flowers and plants
Mermista: She is a
mermaid that can transform into a
human. We had always wondered why
she had a French accent. Recently, Alex_hawkey@yahoo.com sent us this
Hi! I, like you, wish to see
She-Ra POP on the TV again. In
England as well as America! You
said that you didn't know why
Mermista had a French accent
- It is because mermaids (the
legend of) are supposed to have
originated from the Mediterranean
Ocean, around the South of France.
In French, mermaid is "serene",
sounding like "siren" in

by the Sorceress and Man-At-Arms.

because of the number of figures
that were produced, and the
availability of them, the prices
can range anywhere from $5 (loose
figure with nothing) to $100 (a
third series MOC figure or
the complete with
box Crystal Castle), and
up (ie. Spinnerella).
These figures can be hard to find,
but I can attest to the
fact that they can be found,
sometimes even at reasonable prices!
-One of our
favorite characters never even made
it to the show, Double Trouble.
We are not even sure why she never
appeared on the show because she was
one of the first action figures
-The first five
episodes of the She-Ra Princess of
Power show are actually a more
detailed version of the Secret
of the Sword movie.

have him travel to Eternia and

cancelled before he could. He was

there was an Adam figures made in
