Action Force #4 was released on 22nd March 1987.

Original material

Coils of the Serpent


Snake-Eyes af1

Snake-Eyes infiltrating the castle.

In the Balkans the Destro line has had a castle since the time of the Crusades, ruling from here and selling arms throughout the centuries and regularly shifting alliances with the castle carrying the Swastika and Imperial Eagle emblems in the nineteen thirties and forties, but is now bedecked with Cobra serpent symbols.

Cobra Commander and Destro arrive by helicopter, unaware that Snake-Eyes was clinging to the rear.[1] Snake-Eyes sneaks into a tunnel, silently overpowering a Cobra Trooper, and finding his way to the air vent for the strategy room. Inside the room Cobra Commander, the Baroness and Destro discuss the castle and Cobra's aims, with Cobra Commander explaining that Cobra aims to destroy the existing world order and rebuild it with Cobra succeeding free will and death delivered to all those who oppose. He announces that tomorrow the Eiffel Tower will be attacked as the first demonstration of Cobra's power. He leaves to organise the campaign.

Left alone Destro asks the Baroness if all Cobra members share their leader's ideological passions and she replies that he has their lives and souls to do what he will. Destro is critical as he believes Cobra Commander's vision is destructive and there must always be a choice, whilst power is "no more than a position, a situation of control", not the mystical thing Cobra Commander seems to think it is. Destro explains that he hopes to hone Cobra Commander into an effective weapon and if not he must be disposed of.

Outside several Cobra Troopers spot Snake-Eyes, who guns them down and flees. Cobra Commander orders the Dreadnoks to be sent after him!
