G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero #282

The Joes are called in front of a Senate Hearing to justify their actions in Springfield in saving Throwdown (AKA the new original Snake Eyes). What they don't know is that one of the Senators is a Cobra sympathizer (broadcasting the entire event to Cobra Commander) and another of the Senators is unwittingly a brainwashed sleeper agent who Cobra attempts to trigger during the testimony.

G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero #282 is certainly a step back in terms of action from many of the recent issues. What we do get is a Cobra plant attempting to sneak into the Senate chambers and activate their sleeper agent. While Sherlock (a new Joe making her debut here) is able to stop him, the truth about his mission is still unknown to the Joes and another agent of Cobra is able to clean up the mess by killing their other plant.

The disruption apparently hasn't ended the hearing just yet, or (somehow) convinced the panel of the very real threat Cobra presents to America and the world at large. That means there's still enough time for Cobra to strike again.
