G.I. Jon and Nightcrawler Part 2: The Battle at the Roof of the World

I was traveling in a C-5A Galaxy with a squad of Joes led by Flint. We were heading towards the Arctic Circle where a pod containing one of the scientists went down.

“It’s too bad about Duke,” I said.

“Yeah, who could’ve seen it coming,” Flint replied. “He bumped his head while in Springfield and fell into another coma.”

“I’m surprised he’s not a drooling vegetable by now.”

“Duke’s a tough cookie,” Lady Jaye asserted. “He’ll pull through.”

“Yeah, he always does,” Flint chuckled.

“Get ready for landing,” Wild Bill called over the intercom. “Yeeehaww!”

The cargo plane slid to a halt on the ice and we quickly unloaded the Snow Cat and Polar Battle Bears. We then made our way to rescue the scientist.

Suddenly laser fire filled the air around us.

“Hiss tanks and FANGs dead ahead!” yelled Snow Job. “It’s an ambush!”

“It seemed pretty obvious that we were heading into one,” Wet Suit replied and returned fire.

“That’s what we get paid the big bucks for,” Iceberg added as he joined the firefight.

“Evidently you haven’t been looking at your paycheck lately,” Snow job quipped.

“Yo Joe!” the team called out as they worked their way through the Cobra forces.

“Cobraaaaa!” the terrorists yelled as they continued to engage our team.

“Over there, it’s Major Bludd!” yelled Lady Jaye. “I’d recognize his ugly mug anywhere!”

“Don’t come any closer Joes!” the Australian mercenary held up a remote control. “There’s enough explosives under Dr. Brown to send her back into orbit. One push of a button and boom, mates!”

Suddenly the ice beneath Bludd’s feet cracked and he fell straight through into the frigid waters. Wet Suit popped up from under the water.

“Let’s see you push the button with your thumb frozen,” the SEAL said.

I quickly ran over to the scientist. “Are you alright, ma’am?”

“Ye-yes, thanks to you guys,” she replied.

“Quick, let’s get her out of the cold and back to where she’s safe,” Flint ordered.

Lady Jaye quickly escorted the scientist into the cab of the Snow Cat. More laser fire rained down on us.

“Cobra, attack!” Major Bludd yelled. “Attack!”

“How’d he get out of the water so quickly?” I asked.

“I don’t know,” Snow Job replied. “Time to send him back. Yo Joe!”

“Yo Joe!” the Joes called out once again in unison.

“Time for the Cobras to go skiing!” Iceberg called out from the Snow Cat. He fired the two ski-mounted missiles at the HISS tanks. Cobra Snow Serpents dove from their armored vehicles and scattered as the tanks erupted into large fireballs.

“Those FANGs have got some bite,” Flint said while firing up at the airborne Cobras.

“Well wait until they get a taste of this!” Lady Jaye threw her javelin at one of the gyrocopters. As it also exploded, the pilot dove from his seat and landed with a splat in a snowbank.

“I’ll get you yet, you bloody dingoes!” Major Bludd shook his fist at us, then turned and ran away. The rest of his crew quickly followed suit.

“And we’ll be ready!” Wet Suit called back at the retreating forces.

“Hey get a load of that.” Flint pointed up towards the sky.

“It’s the Aurora Borealis.” Lady Jaye looked up at the phenomena. “Isn’t it romantic?”

“You bet,” the warrant officer replied. “You know what else is romantic?”

“No, what?”

“Blowing up Terrordromes,” Flint answered. “Let’s head back to Springfield.”

“Yeah, let’s get them slimy snakes!” Snow Job yelled out as he stood next to Lady Jaye.

I just wondered how the Joe team that Nightcrawler was accompanying was doing.

Thousands of shots fired and not one person hit. No wonder they can stay so glib.

I'm sure Nightcrawler is fine... unless he's been disintegrated.
