Serpentor returns to Cobra-La, whose leader Golobulus claims to be behind the creation of Serpentor. Cobra Commander is placed on trial and is revealed to be a Cobra-La scientist who was exiled but with the mission to conquer the world for Golobulus. For his failure, the Commander is mutated by spores. Cobra-La intends to infect all humanity with the same spores once they have been nourished with the help of the B.E.T. In lieu of court-martial, Falcon is sent to train with Sgt. Slaughter and his Renegades. Meanwhile, Roadblock's unit stages a failed escape attempt, but Roadblock makes it out with the help of the mutated Cobra Commander.
