"Revolution Take A Stand"
Joe Colton is talking to Scarlett in the The Pit with Miles Manheim sitting in the corner listening and commenting.

In flashback: Joe Colton is leading his Adventure Team, which includes Miles Manheim and Atomic Man in the desert. Later, Colton and Manheim are meeting with Action Man. Many years later, an aged Joe Colton is giving the thumbs up to the current Joe team members which include General Hawk, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Flint, Duke, Snake Eyes, Roadblock and Scarlett.

Miles Manheim points out that the world has changed dramatically since all of their Adventure Team missions and that is why he is sitting in The Pit.

In flashback: several Transformers Autobots and Decepticons including Ratchet are fighting in their robot forms. Starscream is holding a ball of Energon. Optimus Prime with Bumblebee, Jazz, Ratchet, Iron Hide, and Hot Rod are standing against the Decepticons Megatron, Soundwave, Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp, and Dirge.

Manheim explains the Cybertronians where very good at hiding in disguise; they were here seeking a material only found on Earth called ORE-13, which can be refined into Energon – their fuel as well as powerful weapon.

In flashback: Optimus Prime arrived with his Autobots to protect Earth from the Decepticons but Miles and Colton are not too sure about him. Optimus Prime left Earth letting Megatron caused massive damage as he burned the world killing nearly a billion people which forced Optimus to return to defeat Megatron. Optimus leaves again and refuses to share his technology with Earth’s scientists. At the same time, a new organization came to be known worldwide called Cobra. They arrived out of centuries of being in the shadows into a full scale shooting war which leads to a nuclear strike on the country of Nanzhao. The Cobra leadership of Cobra Commander (aka Krake), Baroness, Destro, Major Bludd, Firefly, Storm Shadow and Xamot is shown on screen as Scarlett, Colton and Manheim continue the conversation. Also video footage of Snake Eyes and Helix fighting Red Ninjas is shown. Scarlett has now been promoted to Colonel and The Pit is filled with covered vehicles in the dark.

The GI Joe team has been brought into the public light, discredited and defunded cause of the failure to stop Cobra.

Miles Manheim reminds them of the return of Megatron and Soundwave. It was a deal based on trust with the Earth Defense Command and Marissa Faireborn and Daniel Witwicky but they ended up betraying humans and this time GI Joe will be there to stop them.
