@ONLINE_209 correct...scratch that...read this:

DC Comics presents #47 is considered to be the first appearance of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe in comics. It has long been a key book that commands substantial prices in high grade. Strangely, his famous twin sister Adora has not received such prestige. There is currently no official “first appearance of She-Ra” recognized by CBCS or CGC. Some characters have an obvious first introductory appearance. Some have last page, shadowy cameos or a preview that fans argue over endlessly. The precedent for a “true first appearance” is not black and white. The market tends to pick the winner not by technical means, but by popularity. This can be can be any number of circumstances including; rarest early appearance, best cover appearance or first in standard american comic format. Depending on your personal definition, She-Ra may be one of the more complicated first appearances I have come across.

The Princess of Power action figure line was introduced early in 1985. Like MOTU, every figure came with a mini comic. This is the first She-Ra in comic form, dated 1984. Of course the He-man figure also came with these books and the market does not recognize this as his first appearance. The figures were distributed in many countries. Here is a selection of her first mini comics from the U.S, Brazil and Italy.

Issues #13-#17 are the " origin retelling " of She-Ra. (Whatever that means)

#18 is the official breakout appearance of She-Ra.

Mini comic 1st appearance? Do we really want to see another 200 word page report on whether or not this is her first appearance? Do we really want another Good Morty situation? Because that's how you get another Good Morty Situation.

I know, right? Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
