The Autobots and Decepticons are now acting of their own free will. GI Joe and Cobra now find themselves caught in the middle of the Cybertronian ages old conflict. The Jugglers are moving forward with a nuclear attack to eliminate the alien threat, and anything else on Cobra Island. What they don't know is that such an attack with high concentrations of Energon may not only destroy the island, but half of the planet in the process.

Full Details

The G.I. Joe invasion force approaches Cobra Island by air, but what they see on their approach isn't what the expect - Cobra forces apparently fleeing some sort of combat on the island!

The Joe Blue Group lands, deploying AWE Strikers, Brawlers, a Wolverine, and of course, Wheeljack and Bumblebee. Meanwhile the Joe Red Group deploys via hang glider...

Hawk leads the assault team up the beach, taking out gun emplacements as they go. Before long, though, they run straight into a giant robot melee - Thundercracker and Skywarp, tussling with Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, and Cliffjumper.

Back in Washington, the President gives the final confirmation to launch the nuclear strike on the island.

Meanwhile Megatron and Soundwave activate the SPS Satellite, and a brilliant light emerges from the centre of Cobra Island. The device works - it begins filling the Energon cubes with enough energy to power an army of Decepticons!

Outside, the battle rages. The Constructicons merge into Devastator, and blast Hound; Bumblebee and Wheeljack try to tackle him. Elsewhere Snake-Eyes comes face to face with Starscream, who thinks he can capture the commando. Snake-Eyes has different plans, though, and attacks the Decepticon! He slashes the robot across the left eye with his sword, and then aggravates the wound by punching it! Starscream loses his balance and topples over a waterfall. Finally, Storm Shadow, still in his SNAKE armor, manages to take our Trailbreaker while Cobra Commander escapes.

Not far away, Optimus Prime, still not fully recovered from his fight with Megatron and Soundwave last issue, struggles to his feet. He knows Megatron must be stopped. He transforms and crashes through into the Cobra stronghold, where he threatens to blow them all sky-high by shooting the Energon cubes. Soundwave and Ravage attack, followed by Reflector, and although Prime easily defeats them all, Megatron manages to escape.

Meanwhile, Hawk receives the word from General Flagg about the incoming nuke. He tells the Autobots and Joes they must do everything the can to get rid of the Energon before the nuke hits, but even if they manage that, there's no way any of them will escape the blast...
