Other notes

Errors

  • The climactic battle takes place on what seems to be a completely deserted stretch of land, but Staten Island is heavily populated. Physical details of Fort Wadsworth which have been seen in other issues, such as the water towers and barracks, are nowhere to be seen.
  • Tripwire is mistakenly called "Torpedo" in one panel.
  • The next issue box promises "an unusual tale by Larry Hama" - obviously the famous "Silent Interlude." But that was pushed back one month for some reason, and issue #20 wasn't written by Larry Hama at all.

Items of note

  • First appearances: P.A.C./R.A.T.S.; S.N.A.K.E. battle armor; G.I. Joe pre-fab fortress (the toyline's Headquarters)
  • Cobra weapons systems are pre-programmed not to fire at anything painted "Cobra Blue." That shows an unusual level of forethought on Cobra Commander's part.
  • According to the filecard for Chameleon, that's not really the Baroness Major Bludd saves.
  • Deaths of General Flagg, Scar-Face, Quinn and Dr. Venom.

Real-world references

  • The image in the upper left hand corner of the cover is fill-in editor Linda Grant in an army helmet, surrounded by explosions.
    • All the Marvel Comics books this month were part of "Assistant Editors' Month," and most had light, comical stories. G.I. Joe bucked this trend, going all-out for the conclusion of their first major storyline.
  • With this issue, Marvel has now featured every character and piece of equipment from the first two years of the A Real American Hero toys (save for the F.L.A.K.).
