G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero #290

Set immediately after the Battle of Springfield, G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero #290 offers another single-issue spotlight. This time around the subject of the issue is the elite Russian special mission force the Oktober Guard. The severe injuries to the team's sniper in Springfield offers a look back in flashbacks to the origin of their transformation from regular soldiers to cyborgs.

In order to save one of their own, the Oktober Guard will need to raid Revanche and steal the robotic parts needed. Sadly, the group doesn't realize they are walking into a trap before it is too late. While the Guard manages to make it out alive with the parts the came for, Revanche isn't too worried about the theft as their control of the parts within the soldiers gives them an advantage for the future.
