Cobra Commander ok's the attack on PIT III by Dr. Mindbender as a diversion while Destro and the Dreadnoks free the Baroness, as Spirit falls(?) to stop a lone B.A.T. armed w/explosives set to blow up the PIT. Snake-Eyes is freed from the late Dr. Venom's control by Storm Shadow using the Arashikage mindset, returning his sword brother back to normal (Snake-Eyes failing his own attempt last issue by way of Venom's actions inside his mind via the scanner), but Billy is still under Venom's influence.
