    Danger Girls

    After Abbey Chase and Sydney Savage failed to retrieve the Atlantean shield from The Peach, Johnny was asked to join the Danger Girls in infiltrating the Peach's Switzerland party. When Sydney introduces him to Abbey, she makes it clear that she does not like his womanizing attitude and that he is "a legend in his own mind." Their younger team mate, Silicon Valerie, adores him though. Even writing bad poetry in his honor.

    A Peachy Party

    Johnny agrees to attend the party with Abbey posing as guests. In the meantime, Natalia Kassle and Sydney arrived ahead of them as waitresses. When they are discovered Johnny, Natalia and Sydney distract the Hammer agents at the party while Abbey steals the shield. Abbey and Johnny then escape with the shield using a snowmobile and hide in a log cabin. Johnny then uses the time alone with Abbey to try and seduce her.

    Just as he is about to kiss her, Sydney arrives to rescue them. As they return, Sydney mocks Abbey for nearly succumbing to Johnny's charm. Valerie informs them that she has located another item and Johnny joins them as they head to England to retrieve it.

    Enchanted Eddie

    Johnny and Danger Girl then headed to England and the seaside home of "Enchanted Eddie" a Dungeons and Dragons fan who had one of the pieces, a helmet, in his collection. When Eddie showed them the helmet, the Hammer, led by Major Maxim ambushed them. As Natalia, Sydney and Johnny battled the Hammer operatives, Abbey tried to escape with Eddie, Valerie and the helmet. In the struggle, Johnny and Sydney are captured by the Hammer and taken to Hammer Island!


    While Abbey got away, Sydney and Johnny were captured by the Hammer and taken prisoner on Hammer Island. It was there that they learned of the feeble Fuhrer's scheme to use the Atlantean artifacts to turn himself into an unstoppable Aryan warrior and of their team mate, Natalia's betrayal.

    While in their cell, Sydney (much to Johnny's disbelief) convinced the guard she needed help unzipping her costume to use the bathroom as her hands were behind her back. As the guard unzipped her, staring at her chest, she karate kicked him. She took his keys and freed herself and Johnny.

    The pair battle their way through Hammer Island, pausing to share a kiss, before be interrupted by an amused Abbey. They join her and go outside to find the Fuhrer's transformation ritual in progress.

    Sydney and Johnny battle the Hammer's henchmen as Abbey and Natalia take on the out of control Fuhrer. The island begins to flood as a result of Abbey's efforts to defeat the nazi leader, but just as hope looks lost for Sydney and Johnny they are rescued by Deuce and Valerie.

    With the Hammer's schemes defeated, for now, Johnny joins the others in welcoming Abbey as a fully fledged Danger Girl! 

    Other Versions 

    Danger Girl/G.I. Joe 

    After the acquisition of the Danger Girl  characters by IDW  it was decided to first launch the characters under the IDW banner with a crossover with one of the major properties at IDW, G.I. Joe  (as they are owned by the same company it seems possible that these characters exist in the same continuity, though this is never confirmed.)  The series starts off with a dog chase involving Scarlett  and Flint  and they are soon shot down.  It is revealed that they were providing escort for a shipment of rediscovered missiles with great destructive power.  They are soon shot down though and the missiles are taken by Cobra , who also take the two prisoners.  Once in Cobra custody they come across Abbey Chase  who is acting undercover, though the two members of G.I. Joe do not know this.  Elsewhere the American president arrives to the USS Flagg  and informs the Joe team to stand down and to not seek to free their teammates.  General Flag orders them to stand down.  The remaining female members (Cover Girl , Lady Jaye  and Jinx ) come up with a plan where they will contact the Danger Girl team (Cover Girl had previously met Johnny Barracuda .)  The team shows up and exposes the U.S. president as Zarana  in disguise.  Soon enough it is revealed that the Danger Girl team already has an operative in place and she informs them of the plan.  Firefly  is to head to Moscow  and detonate one of the missiles while Major Bludd  is to go to Beijing  to detonate another.  Three teams head out, one to each of the two cities and the third to the Cobra base.  By now Abbey is under suspicion of BaronessDestro  and Cobra Commander  and is captured by Zartan  when she attempts to free Scarlett and Flint.  While they are trying to escape a team of Low LightSnake Eyes  and Stalker  arrive to free them.  Meanwhile in Beijing a team of Jinx, Johnny Barracuda and Sonya Savage  stop Major Bludd while a team of Sydney Savage , Cover Girl and Roadblock  stop Firefly.  It is soon revealed that there is another missile which is headed for the homing beacon which Zarana has placed on the USS Flagg.  Silicon Valerie , Duke and Lady Jaye quickly deal with it.  Meanwhile at the Cobra base Storm Shadow  has arrived to stop the Joes and he engages Snake-Eyes in combat.  Eventually this group is also able to escape, while blowing up the base and they are all reunited on the USS Flagg.
