Long Summary

Heavy Metal, Flint and Lady Jaye take the mauler past Stonehenge in into the Salisbury Plain, passing an old hippie on the way.

The 'old hippie' calls for a COBRA airstrike, and two F.A.N.G.s rise from the treeline. ACTION FORCE is able to defeat the two F.A.N.G.s, the second with their new anti-helicopter missile.

The 'old hippie' changes out of his disguise - it was Destro! Destro vows to obtain a round of the anti-helicopter missile and copy and sell it to Cobra Commander, as well as two new F.A.N.G.s!
