GI JOE DDP Issue #31 (var)
Duke is called into Hawk's office at The Pit, where Flint, Recondo, and Rip Cord have been briefing Hawk on the mission to Sierra Gordo that ended with capture of Destro and left Low Light and Tunnel Rat in critical condition and put Dart on emergency psych leave. The confrontation is about Duke risking the lives of his men, and without their and Hawk's knowledge. Rip Cord expresses his doubt in Duke, and references his loss of girlfriend, Candy. Rip Cord says the Duke he knew back then isn't the same Duke that has returned since GI Joe was reformed. Flint calls for Duke's resignation, and they get in pushing match that Hawk breaks up. Hawk excuses Duke for the time being.
In Kansas, Hawk, Lady Jaye, Shockwave, Roadblock, Cover Girl, Law & Order, Crosshair, Wide Scope, and Flint move the captured Destro to the UN building in Washington D.C. for the beginning of Destro's trial. Destro has requested to speak to council personally or will withdraw his cooperation.
