|The Superpower Potion|
|Original Airdate||Dec. 12, 1985|
|Written By||C.H. Trengove|
Vultureman invents a Super Power Potion, which gives him incredible magical powers and strength, enabling him to mesmerize and defeat Tygra. Vultureman then makes a deal with Mumm-Ra that he will share the potion in exchange for Mumm-Ra's secret to everlasting life. Vultureman asserts his authority over the other Mutants, putting Slithe in a trance. He attacks and defeats Panthro as the latter searches for Tygra. Slithe recovers and commands the Mutants to search for the potion. As they discover it, Mumm-Ra materializes and confiscates the vial. Meanwhile, Vultureman challenges Lion-O and is about to defeat him when his super powers wear off. Mumm-Ra appears and denies Vultureman's plea for another dose of super power. Lion-O destroys the potion and Vultureman slinks away defeated.
Lion-O: "No potion can make you less evil, Vultureman. And evil always loses out in the end."
Animation Mistakes and/or Technical Glitches
- Tygra's whip is in his right hand, but when Panthro catches sight of him in the Thundertank, the whip is in his left hand.
- In the close-up shot of Tygra after Panthro finds him, his upper arm past his sleeve's cuff is pale, not orange and striped as it should be.
Inconsistencies/Continuity Errors and/or Goofs/Oddities
- In the previous episode The Mountain, Mumm-Ra threatened to exile Slithe, Monkian, and Jackalman if they failed in their task, but here he is shown never to have carried out that sentence even though they did fail.
- Vultureman: "I'll rattle that mummy's bones 'til he surrenders Third Earth to me."
- Vultureman: "Might is right, Thundercat. And you might as well give in now."
- Lion-O: "You should have known better than to strike a bargain with Mumm-Ra, Vultureman."
- Tygra: [of Vultureman ruling Third Earth] "Can you imagine what that would be like?"
- Panthro: "I'd say that idea is strictly for the birds." [everyone laughs]
