Hawk having been shot in back by Cobra Commander lies on ground apparently dead. Then a series of dream like moments happen: Hawk retires, Hawk recalls a wife he had, Cobra has been defeated, GI Joe is disbanded, and Cobra Commander is in prison. As well as a memory of leave on mission to return and find out his fiance is dead. All of the dreams happen in the span of a minute. Hawk survives but is paralyzed with an unretractable bullet lodged in his spine.
-Wraith back up story.
-A finance of Hawk's is introduced; the time frame in which she was alive is yet to be determined.
-Storm Shadow appears in a dream sequence in the group of Joes in his urban ninja gear, a reference to the days when he was part of GI Joe during the Marvel run.
