The new Cobra Commander has made his first move—all-out invasion of the Southeast Asian nation of Nanzhao, a center of the worldwide drug trade. As the world’s eyes turn toward the attack, G.I. Joe moves in to try and stop the invasion and they soon realize Cobra’s goals aren’t occupation—but annihilation! Cobra lays waste to Nanzhao’s opium fields, as well as to the U.N. troops directing the civilian evacuation. Chaos reigns as Cobra Commander sends the Baroness on a secret mission. Joe team members Mainframe and Scarlett attempt to make sense of Cobra’s tactics, while the Joes on the ground try to save what lives they can… but the Joes aren’t alone.
