Synopsis:
The Joe team hooks up with the original G.I. Joe to keep Cobra (disguised as Iron Grenadiers) from taking over a covert laser defense system that he developed as a private citizen for the government. Cobra steals the disks containing the needed information to control the defense system, but Joe saves the day when he targets the drone carrying the disks to Fred, and fires a laser to disintegrate it. He then tells the Joe team he was the original G.I. Joe, and Jane was his nurse when Hawk wants to make him an honorary member, to which Muskrat responds he always thought the original team was bigger than just the two of them.
