Storyline

The G.I. Joe Special Missions Force must contend with COBRA who, after a successful raid for a special broadcast satellite, now threatens the world with a revolutionary device called the MASS device which can snatch anything seemingly out of existence around the world as well as normal teleportation. GI Joe finds the original designer of the device who advises that the only way to counter that weapon is to build a MASS device of their own. However to do that, three rare catalytic elements are needed to power the device properly. Now the team must race around the world and find those supplies, while battling COBRA who has the same need for them as well. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Trivia

Most of the vehicles from both G.I. Joe and COBRA were based on actual military vehicles. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the first cliffhanger, Ramar the Giant Slave swings his arms and knocks down two stone columns (a preposterous notion in and of itself); as the second episode opens, a large overhead shot now shows the two columns that he knocked down about 50 yards apart. In order to knock them down, Ramar would have needed a wingspan of about 150-160 feet! See more »

Quotes

Ace: Uh-oh. What we got here is a game of dirty pool. With a capital "D" for Destro!
[points to the volcano's side]
Ace: He's undercutting the lava in the crater!
Airborne, Ramar: When that crater wall breaks we could have us one *humongous* blowout!
