the global chaos myth that was Y2K. In the world of
Thundarr the Barbarian, the end of civilization occurred
six years earlier, when, in 1994, a runaway planet hurtled
between the earth and the moon, “unleashing cosmic
destruction.” Now, 2000 years later, Earth is a savage
world occupied by wizards, mutants and monsters.
. . . And one superhero, of course - the blonde, muscular
Thundarr. The title barbarian was once a slave of the evil
wizard Sabian, but he was set free by Princess Ariel,
Sabian's stepdaughter. Taking pity on the poor,
good-looking slave, Ariel gave him a magic sabre that
could send out an energy ray capable of destroying any
foe. With the help of this Sun Sword and a lionlike mutant
pal named Ookla the Mok, Thundarr and Ariel fought all
manner of futuristic enemies to save their beloved Earth.
