Memorable quotes

  • None yet.

Other notes

Errors

  • On page 11, a word balloon about T'Jbang, Nunchuck and Snake-Eyes points at T'Jbang.
    • Made even worse by the fact that T'Jbang has taken a vow of silence.
  • When Stalker shows his authorization, his hand is white.

Items of note

  • First Appearances: Slice, Dice, Badger, Battle Wagon, Brawler, Cobra Battle Copters
  • Trans-Carpathia is named for the first time.
  • Destro and Baroness' tour of the Silent Castle pretty much follows the path Snake-Eyes took in issue #21.
  • Stalker is back in his green uniform.
  • It's not clear who the other Joes in the Battle Wagon and the Brawler are, but in the next issue they're revealed as Ambush, Big Ben, Roadblock and Rock 'n Roll.

Dossiers

Real-world references

  • "The children of the night," in reference to wolves howling, comes from Bram Stoker's Dracula.
  • Destro's chess set was sculpted by the same guy in Brooklyn who does holograms for Credit Cards - a common safety feature in the late '80s and early '90s.
    • It's also a reference to Bill Merklein, who sculpted many of the A Real American Hero toys, and also did work for credit card companies. Basically, Destro's chess set uses the same G.I. Joe toys kids were playing with.
  • The go-word to trigger Baroness' brainwashing is Manchuria.
  • The four Red Ninjas Destro and the Baroness fight are armed with a katana, a bo staff, a pair of sais, and nunchucks - the same four weapons used by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
