Masters of the Universe: New Champions of Eternia

cover35This 25-page picture book (1985) presents a mystery that reveals the origin of Queen Marlena and three of Skeletor’s evil henchmen. The reader can solve part of the mystery by decoding these names written as anagrams: Nyvelli, Abstanem and Potskril. These three and Queen Marlena are from a planet far from Eternia (which happens to be Earth). They were traveling in a spaceship and fell into a “portal” leading to Eternia. Marlena was rescued by King Randor and became his wife. The other three, Evelyn Powers, Biff Beastman and Dr. Scope joined the evil side and were transformed into Evil-Lyn, Beast Man and Tri-Klops, respectively.
