G.I. JOE: A REAL AMERICAN HERO #168 A team of G.I. Joes lead by Iceberg have arrived on the North Polar Icecap to investigate an old Russian ice station. The station, however, looks to have been cleaned out of all its equipment and the Joes are quickly surrounded by Cobra agents. Outgunned and outnumbered, Iceberg's team is taken in by the Cobra agents... but Blizzard, who separated earlier from the team, remains undetected and plans to set the Joes free! Meanwhile, Mainframe is in New York, helping Joe Colton re-calibrate a satellite weapon for G.I. Joe. But the repairs may be cut short by Firefly and Crystal Ball, who plan on infiltrating the facility and wreaking havoc.
