- a Crimson Guard (after seeing Ace fall to the ground while Roadblock and Gung Ho continue to retreat)
Scarlett and Wild Bill leave the palace, and Wild Bill is only slightly
concerned about getting into trouble. As they fly away, Prince Ali wishes
them luck in rescuing their friends.
Destro tells Cobra Commander in a told-you-so tone that he has underestimated
the resourcefulness of the Joes as they both watch the Joes escape. Ace
falls and the Cobra guards capture him. "I thought the Joes never leave
behind one of their own," says one Cobra agent, "Ha! Pure propaganda."
Then Gung Ho drops down from a boulder and attacks two Cobras. Ace smashes
the heads of his two guards and Roadblock knocks away the remaining Cobras'

Shooting at the ceiling in the cavern, Ace and the other Joes bring
down enough rubble to prevent Cobra from chasing them for a few hours.
The Joes turn and begin to walk through the cavern, but they reach a fork
in the cavern. Not knowing which of the two routes to take, Ace pulls out
a coin and states theat Lady Luck will decide. The coin lands on heads

guns explode and the ceiling begins to collapse, so the Joes jump into
the hole and luckily they land in a river.
After Flint nails a CLAW he wonders where in the blazes everybody is

Ace and the other Joes arrive back at the palace, climb into their Skystrikers
and fly into the air to repel Cobra's forces. The latecomers destroy a
few of the Rattlers and CLAWs and soon their enemies are retreating. As
Flint, Breaker and Flint watch Cobra fly away, Airborne grabs his head

Flint tells him that Airborne has some sort ESP (extra-sensory perception)
according to his file. When the pain has ended Airborne explains that the
Prince has been kidnapped by Cobra. Flint orders the Skystrikers into the
desert to find the prince.
As the Joes fly toward Cobra's base, Wild Bill wonders how they are
supposed to attack when Cobra could shake them to pieces. "So let's shuffle
the deck," says Ace. Landing near the same hole in the ground Gung Ho and
the other Joes were found earlier, Wild Bill, Gung Ho and Scarlett lower
a raft and themselves into the river and drive to the Cobra base.
