Letters Column: Postbox: The Pitt

Synopsis:
Hawk leads four generals/admirals through the Pit on an expection tour. The rest of the Joes are scattered about the area. Most are hanging around the base under which the Pit is housed. Serpentor leads a Cobra invasion of the Pit. Cobra Commander and Destro make their way down to the bottom of the Pit trapping Hawk and the four generals/admirals. During the battle the joes intercept Serpentor up top while two of the generals sacrifice themselves to save the rest. The Pit is destroyed. Destro and Cobra Commander are presumed dead. After this issue the Joes become a nomad group with no clear base of operations.
