The Thundercats are enjoying the hospitality of the Nai people when the festivities are interrupted by the appearance of a Sea Dragon. Cheetara distracts the dragon long enough for Lion-O to use the Sword of Omens on it. To everyone's surprise, the creature turns out to be Mumm-Ra in disguise. He vanishes, swearing vengeance, and the Thundercats return home to the news that the Thunderkittens are missing. They reappear from out of nowhere and it is Snarf who realises that this pair are not WilyKit and WilyKat, because they have blue eyes.
Written by Dan Abnett
Mumm-Ra stirs up Mongor to take vengeance on the Thundercats for his defeat at their hands. Later, Pumyra is out flying with the Thunderwings when she is attacked by a Skycutter that has no pilot. Meanwhile, Bengali and Tygra are using Stiltrunners when they too are attacked by a Mutant vehicle, a nosediver this time. Alerted to trouble, Lion-O gets on the case and tracks Mongor down to the Field of the Dagger Rocks. Sure enough, Mongor is holding Tygra, Bengali and Pumyra as his prisoners. Lion-O and Mongor fight, giving Panthro the chance to free their friends, and soon all is well again.
