G.I. Joe #12 "Three Strikes for Snake-Eyes"
Summary: The Joes are once again pursuing a Cobra contingent. This time, it's in midtown San Francisco and the Cobras are escaping with a crate of missile guidance chips. Clutch, Scarlett and Breaker are pursuing a Cobra van with markings for the Naja Hanna video company. The van crashes and a scar-faced Cobra officer makes a break for it with a briefcase. The Joes chase him on foot, but Breaker runs into some bikers who start beating the crap out of him. The Cobra, Scar-Face, grazes Clutch in the knee and gets away. But Scar-Face let it slip that this whole caper wasn't just about guidance chips. The Joes survey the van wreckage and salvage part of a crate: adressed to "Senor K. Winn" of the Naja hanna Computer Corporation in Rio Lindo, Sierra Gordo. Later, Hawk and General Flagg meet beneath the Pentagon and decide to send in an undercover unit to Rio Lindo. Breaker and Stalker go in, disguised as business men in banana shorts, while Gung Ho and Snake Eyes wait in the treeline as support. Breaker and Stalker knock on the door of the Naja Hanna building and meet Dr. Venom. Their sham doesn't work, as Venom quickly exposes them as Joes and the shit hits the fan. Snake-Eyes had been watching from the trees and immediately stormed in when he saw Dr. Venom. Gung-Ho and Snake-Eyes arrive to save the other two, but that's when "Senor K.Winn", otherwise known as Kwinn the Eskimo, appears with his Browning .50 Cal machine gun. Kwinn's currently working for Cobra and easily disarms the Joes.
Stalker, Gung-Ho and Breaker are tied up and loaded onto a Cobra boat, while Dr. Venom pistol-whips Snake-Eyes. Believing he's killed Snake-Eyes, Venom tosses him into the Naja Hanna building and lights it on fire. The Cobra boat then motors up the river to a fortified island bunker. Halfway there, Venom realizes that Snake-Eyes has tricked him, once again, with that "fake death" thing. After some antagonistic words with Kwinn, Venom arrives at the Cobra bunker, to conduct a toxin exchange between Scar-Face and the Baroness. Cobra has a bio-terror plot to ferret out the location of the Joe HQ. The Joes in the boat break their bonds and prepare to storm the bunker, when Snake-Eyes suddenly appears and orders them to finish the mission and get the chips back to HQ. The Baroness flies away in a sea plane, leaving Kwinn, Venom and Snake-Eyes on the island. Venon is about to shoot Kwinn in the back, but Snake-Eyes jumps Venom and starts beating the living shit of the doctor. The Baroness fires a missile at the escaping Joes (who jump overboard and avoid it), then doubles back and bombs the bunker. Kwinn appeared to be pushing both Venom and Snake-Eyes into the bunker.. but it appears to the three Joes that Snake-Eyes is really gone, this time.
