Safe Haven
By Ferg Handley
Art by Cosmo White, Hat Nicholson & Will Lucas

The Thundercats are resting in the Badlands when they notice some Lizardmen encroaching on them in a Pincer movement to force them into a strange forest. That evening the Thundercats wandering through the strange forest when they encounter some fellow Thudnerians and they invite our heroes to their campsite, where they explain how they escaped the destruction of Thundera and how they found this area, with a constant light source from a crystal.

Lion-O and the others agree to train up the Thunderian civilians and build up an army of sorts to deal with Mumm-Ra and his forces. After the team are taken to a quiet area to rest. Later Snarf detects something wrong and wakes up the others and they find the new Thunderians attacking them, intending to kill them.

Wilykit tries to use her flute to see if it can affect the Thunderians, and it does, it dazes them and makes them change form briefly, their leader Tiberus stops her from playing by knocking out her flute. Lion-O and the others noticed the sudden change, and Lion-O has a theory that the crystal that provides light to the cavern is responsible, so he uses the Sword of Omens to destroy it. Once the crystal is gone, all the Thunderians take on their true insectoid forms, and Alba, whom is now their leader explains that they are the Darva Clan, and are shapeshifters. They were trapped in the forest by a Necromancer who once controlled them with the crystal. Days ago Mumm-Ra contacted Tiberus and made a deal to free the Darvans if they kill the Thundercats, which is why the Lizardmen drew them to the forest before.

Alba apologizes and give Lion-O an ancient amulet for helping them, Lion-O accepts it and they leave, unaware that Mumm-Ra is watching them through his magic cauldron, and comments about how sometimes there are traps within traps....

The End?
