One Christmas Eve Frostbite and Footloose were stationed in the Norwegian Arctic Circle where they prevented a squad of Snow Serpents from destroying the base. At a Christmas meal around a campfire, the only food coming in bar form, Frostbite revealed he didn't like the turkey, stuffing and brussel sprouts bar but ate up because plum pudding was coming.[1] Later Frostbite and Iceberg were stationed at the Apogee Base in Greenland when it was attacked by Destro and a squad of F.A.N.G.s. The attack was fought off and Frostbite remained at the base whilst Iceberg and Flint pursued Destro.[2] Frostbite subsequently became part of Tiger Force and was present for an early mission to Jordan to destroy a shot down Phantom X-19 and rescue Ghostrider and Scarlett.[3]
