Inside Cobra Mountain
Cobra Commander sat bored in his command throne, staff in hand. He was watching a data feed of the recent Cobra infiltration on Joe HQ. Thanks to that mission, Zartan and a single Night Creeper had been captured. Burnout had returned with a Joe data-disk, but the information on it had only clued slyly to an ‘infiltration operation,’ and said nothing else.
“Cobra Commander?” asked Destro, who’d recently returned from a mission. “What is wrong?”
“I’m bored. My master plan is going too slow! We need to speed it up!”
“Of course, Commander, but with the recent Joe infiltration, it will be hard.”
“I don’t want excuses, Destro!”
“NO! Get Mindbender on it, now!”
“Yes, Commander, it shall be done.”
Destro walked away. On Cobra Commander’s other side, Storm Shadow stood quietly, swords in their sheaths. Storm Shadow had rarely stood this long without moving into action and cutting something up.
“Do you want to do something, Storm Shadow?” he asked.
“Well, my Ninja Troopers and Night Creepers do need training–”
“Then go, before I change my mind.”
Storm Shadow turned to go to the dojo. On the way, he found Firefly standing, blocking his way. Storm Shadow tried to scoot around him, but he leapt into the path of the ninja.
“Move, unless you wish to lose an arm!”
Storm Shadow growled, and Firefly grinned before standing aside. He watched Storm Shadow go, but even after he turned the corner, he did not move. He hated that ninja so much…he was going to have to show him he wasn’t someone to mess with.
Zarana and Burnout crouched behind overturned tables and fired at targets. The training room was filled with Cobra troops, but these two were the only ones of any importance. They were also the most accurate shooters. When they were out of ammo, they stood and walked to the Dreadnok bunker, where Ripper and Torch were no doubt arm wrestling or thumb wrestling…or just wrestling. When they arrived, they found the two others eating pizza and watching TV. Rolling her eyes, Zarana sat down.
“This is pointless,” said Burnout. “We should be planning the rescue of Zartan!”
“No way am I breaking into a Joe base for our so-called ‘fearless leader!” said Torch.
“Neither am I!” said Ripper.
Burnout rolled his eyes, grabbed a slice of the pizza, and sat down to join them.
Chameleon sat in her room, unsure of what to do. How long did she remain in hiding before she broke cover and returned to the Joes? When did she show her half-sister, the Baroness, who she truly was?
“Chameleon, are you in there?”
Speaking of Baroness…
“What is it?”
“I needed to see Mindbender and Destro. Do you want to go?”
“Uh…sure, I’ll go.”
She stood. It would definitely need to be soon, before her half-sister was asking her to go to target practice…
Cobra C.L.A.W.S. Commander and a blue C.L.A.W.S. wrestled on the floor of the troopers’ bunker. They pushed at each other, hoping to get the upper hand. Neither of them could defeat the other, because Cobra C.L.A.W.S. were usually of the same strength. But Cobra C.L.A.W.S. Commander was not a normal C.L.A.W.S.
“Point for the commander!” said a Heavy Water.
Whirling, Cobra C.L.A.W.S. Commander pinned the Cobra C.L.A.W.S. to the ground and pushed his leg into the air.
“Victory for the commander!” said a Neo-Viper.
Cobra C.L.A.W.S. Commander grinned and let go of his trooper.
“Hit the showers!” called Blackout to the C.L.A.W.S.
Firefly ambushed Storm Shadow just before they reached the dojo. Growling, Storm Shadow drew his swords, but seeing Firefly unarmed, he immediately put them away. Taking a defensive posture, Storm Shadow prepared to duel his arch-rival. Firefly made the first move, and the two troops were locked in unforgiving combat. The punched, kicked, and chopped at each other, landing blows that no normal trooper could have absorbed without falling.
“What’s going on?” exclaimed a Ninja Trooper.
The two fought their way into the dojo, forcefully trying to gain the upper hand. Anger began to seep into Firefly as he began to lose ground, and he immediately returned to his offensive position. Storm Shadow was pushed back, and he doubled his assault.
“You’re…good…Storm Shadow!” growled Firefly. “But I’m…better!”
Finally angered, Storm Shadow leapt and kicked Firefly in the face. Falling to his knees, the saboteur groaned and was out cold.
“Yes!” hissed the Ninja Troopers.
“Get him to the Medi-Vipers,” said Storm Shadow.
Destro sat in front of Headman. They were the same in some ways – forceful businessmen, violent and unforgiving. But they were much different, in other ways – Destro was a very strong, muscled man, while Headman was scrawny and preferred to use his henchmen to fight his battles.
“Headman,” Destro said, “I’ve got some advice. Get used to fighting your own battles! You won’t be a professional businessman if you hide behind your men. That’s why I make it my business to make, sell, and use my weapons. You must do the same. If you only use that tommy gun for defense, you’re going to die. Fast.”
“Thanks for the advice, Destro.”
“Destro,” called Baroness, “Mindbender needs you in the lab!”
“Of course, Baroness.”
As Destro left, Headman leaned back. This was going to be a long, unfortunate war, and he was on the right side. But if Cobra Commander thought he was going to just sit by as a lapdog, he was dead wrong. Headman had his own reasons for joining Cobra. He stood and walked to another Cobra, Skull Buster.
“How is their plan going? I want to move soon.”
“Don’t worry. Mindbender says it’ll be time soon.”
“That’s good, very good.”
