Created by Grand Slam and the rest of G.I. Joe's crack team of engineers, the Mole Pods are drill tanks that allow their occupants to burrow underground.

Fiction[edit | edit source]

As the threat of the gigantic monsters emerging from beneath the Earth's surface grew, Grand Slam headed up a project to create a vehicle that would allow G.I. Joe to go underground and deal with these monsters at the source. This ultimately lead to the construction of the first two Mole Pods. While Roadblock was pleased with what Slam and the labrats had come up with, the mechanical Cybertronian Skywarp was less than impressed with them.

Loading them up with explosives, Roadblock and his team headed underground in the Mole Pods until they hit a cave. Disembarking, the team stumbled upon two of the monsters in their true, far less threatening form but after they grew into their giant forms the Joes began fighting back and doing their best to protect the Mole Pods from them.

Joe vol. 5 #6 TFWikiFavicon.png After Rock 'n Roll was mutated into a similar giant monster, he tossed Skywarp into one of the Mole Pods, destroying it, the payload of explosives it carried, and the detonation equipment for both Mole Pods' explosives.

Joe vol. 5 #7 TFWikiFavicon.png As a repentant Rock 'n Roll and Skywarp embarked on a suicide mission to detonate the remaining explosives manually, Salvo took the controls of the remaining Mole Pod and piloted it back to the surface.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Unlike the IDW version, the original version of the Mole Pod was a Cobra vehicle from the 2009 Rise of Cobra film.
