G.I. Joe #3- "The Trojan Gambit"
Summary: After raiding a Cobra stronghold, a deactivated Cobra robot is hauled away to the Pit for examination. Breaker, Clutch and Steeler examine it on the fifth (deepest) floor, while Snake-Eyes, Stalker and Flash pack up weapons on the 4th floor. Meanwhile, Hawk and Scarlett schmooze the crew of Fort Wardworth at a tea social, on the ground level in the Chaplain's Assistants Motor Pool. Surprise, surprise, the robot is remotely activated through chemicals and begins rummaging through the Pit. Due to all the shielding in the Pit, the robot has to make it to the surface where it can give out a homing signal to draw in Cobra Commander's assault force. Pretty whimsical time, as the story serves as a "guide to the Pit". The robot bursts into tiny bugs and the final one makes it to the floor grate of the Motor Pool. Scarlett conveinently squashes the bug to save the day. Running low on fuel and with no expcted signal, the Cobra force is forced to return home.
