G.I. JOE: A REAL AMERICAN HERO #169 A team of G.I. Joes led by Iceberg arrived on the North Polar Icecap to investigate an old Russian ice station, but were quickly taken prisoner by Cobra Vipers. Luckily, Blizzard escaped capture and set up an ambush to cause confusion in the Cobra ranks that allowed the Joes to get free. Thanks to Mainframe and Joe Colton's secret weapon, they manage to escape on a Cobra cargo plane and turn the tables on Cobra. But Mainframe and Joe have problems of their own, as Firefly and Crystal Ball attempt to infiltrate the secret facility in the Chrysler building and cause some havoc for G.I. Joe!
