Eternia (Just Outside Snake Mountain):
Skeletor’s Forces have just beaten back an attempt by The SnakeMen to retake Snake Mountain. Beast Man (as per Skeletor’s orders) is scouting the edges of the battlefield in order to be certain that the SnakeMen did actually retreat and not merely regrouped. When he comes upon the Serpent Staff.
King Hiss must have dropped this during the battle, thinks Beast Man I could turn it over to Skeletor…or a could use it to increase my power over animals.
After Beast Man finished scouting the area he takes the Serpent Staff to his chambers in Snake Mountain. After several hours of trying to figure out what to do with the Serpent Staff, Beast Man finally decides to just attempt to reach out to the Serpent Staff with his telepathic ability to control animals. After several minutes of trying unsuccessfully to get some type of response from the Serpent Staff, Beast Man growls in frustration and slams the bottom of Serpent Staff on the ground. Unbeknownst to Beast Man this action allowed The Serpent Staff (simply because it like Snake Mountain was created by King Hiss) to tap into the magical energy of Snake Mountain.
“All Right,” snarls Beast Man “One more time!”
Beast Man then again reaches out to the Serpent Staff with his telepathic powers, this time however due to the fact that the Serpent Staff was tapped into the magical energy of Snake Mountain and the fact that Best Man was not a magic user (Nor were his telepathic powers magical in nature). A temporal portal opens and sucks Beast Man into it. After which The portal closed and the Serpent Staff fell on the floor of Beast Man’s chamber.
Earth (A Tavern somewhere In what is now Europe, during the Hyborian Age):
A Tavern serving girl is busy preparing the Tavern to open in order to serve morning travelers who are either entering or leaving town. Once everything has been made ready she goes into the back room where the wine barrels are kept and discovers a large orange creature. The serving girl then screams.
Having no idea where he was Beast Man had been looking at the various barrels in the room when he hears a woman scream, Irritated by the noise Beast Man (Not bothering to even look in the direction of the noise ) grabs a wine barrel and tosses in the general direction of the noise. The wine barrel soars harmlessly over the serving girl’s head and shatters against the wall.
Upon seeing Beast Man effortlessly throw (not to mention shatter) the wine barrel, the serving girl proceeds to run out of the back room screaming.
Outside the tavern:
Conan had just arrived in town and was looking forward to resting in the local tavern and enjoying the wine there, when the serving girl runs out of the tavern screaming. Conan intercepts the serving girl and asks.
“What is wrong?”
“A…monster…is in the tavern.” says the serving girl, the panic clearly evident in her voice, “he is destroying the wine.”
“I’ll not stand for this!” shouts Conan “Leave this creature to me.”
Conan then stalks into the tavern and upon hearing the sound of smashing. Quickly heads for the back room.
Beast Man had just smashed the last wine barrel when Conan entered the room.
Conan looks around and sees the shattered barrels as well as all the wine on the floor. Conan then shouts.
“I know not what manner of creature you are, but by Crom I will have your hide!”
Conan then draws his sword and takes a fighting stance.
Seeing this Beast Man replies.
“Then you’d better be even stronger than you look.”
Beast Man then unfurls his whip and cracks it an intimidating fashion.
So Who Wins: Skeletor’s Savage Henchman or The Barbarian of Cimmeria?
