Original material

Cold Comfort Part One

Quick Kick has stolen a Snow Cat and come to Communist China in order to find his friend Michael Anke. They were close friends long ago when they worked as stuntmen in Hollywood but time moved on. Quick Kick found Action Force and Michael found fanaticism. Michael disappeared a while ago and his wife hired a private investigator who tracked him to an abandoned monastery in the Himalayas. Then the investigator turned up dead so she turned to Quick Kick. Michael seem to have fallen in with a cult called "The Two-Headed Serpent", dedicated to overthrowing the US government. Quick Kick wonders what he's gotten into.

Suddenly the Snow Cat is attacked by two F.A.N.G.s, piloted by Snow Serpents. Quick Kick uses the weapons to destroy one, but the other destroys the vehicle. Thrown into the now, Quick Kick produces a grenade and destroys the second one. Then he hears a Ferret coming, driven by another Snow Serpent. Quick Kick kicks the driver off and then uses the vehicle to get as far as possible, before a steep climb up the mountain. He is concerned as he though the Two-Headed Serpent was an ineffective force but they are using very familiar equipment. As he reaches the monastery his fears are confirmed - the Two-Headed Serpent is a Cobra!
