Some Joes on their way to lunch are near the museum when Cobra crashes through the dikes. Leatherneck fights with Serpentor and gets the ax. From the Serpentor's face (which takes on the appearance of that part of his DNA), the Joes know that his next target is Dracula. Wet Suit goes in alone to Dracula's castle and is nearly impaled, but saved by Leatherneck. Seeking revenge for ruining his ax, Serpentor throws a dart tips with his venomous blood that ends up stabbing Leatherneck in the back. Lifeline and Wet Suit go to Serpentor's next target in India to get some of Serpentor's blood to create an anti-venom to cure Leatherneck. Serpentor finds King Tashaka's pet giant Cobra, who's venom is the pure form of the venom in Serpentor's blood. Wet Suit has to resort to letting the snake bite him to recover some of the venom. Wet Suit blows up the Cobra mothership, they return home and soon Wet Suit and Leatherneck are up to their usual antics. (Note: Hawk has the wrong voice for one line in this episode)
