How will Destro be introduced in renegades?

Will he be Destro with McCullen flashbacks on how he became Destro?

I think thats safe to assume now that Baroness has named dropped Destro.

What do you guys think?

I’m a bit unclear as to Destro’s name situation. I looked it up, and found his name to be Laird James McCullen Destro XXIV, that Destro is the clan name. I never realized this, I had assumed he adopted the name Destro as a kind of code name. So can the pre-mask version of the character be referred to as both McCullen AND/OR Destro, or what?

I’m really curious to see whether Destro is a free agent upon his introduction, or whether he and MARS are already under Cobra’s dominance. If MARS is still independent, than maybe Destro sees in the Joes an opportunity to gain info that he can use against his rival, Cobra. Perhaps he could provide the Joes a safe haven, or even provide them weapons, in the hopes of gaining their info, or that they will actually manage to expose and bring down Cobra themselves. Cobra determines that the Joes are being aided by MARS, reveals this to the media, and attacks MARS (both militarily and via a PR smear campaign). MARS is crippled, Cobra absorbs them.

Hence, Destro could be accused by CC of having sold weapons to both sides (both Joes and Cobra), just like Destro’s ancestor had done, who’s punishment was to wear a metal mask.

it seems there isn't much interest in Destro's introduction to the show

I dont know , i cant decide yet.I was looking on the renegades web page and at the character pics and it shows him with his mask on.So what im thinking at the moment is , we will see im masked and all and at some point in the episode or maybe a following episode there will be a flashback to show how he came about wearing the mask.But either way its gonna be interesting to see as Destro is one of my favorite characters.To tell the truth im kinda tired of tryin to guess whats goin to happen lol.

LOL - I'm interested, man!

I have always preferred Destro as a free agent, that is associated with Cobra but does his own thing when it suits him. I can't stand it when he's portrayed as a lackey to CC.

Personally, I'd say having Destro being forced to be a lackey but still an independent person at the core of his character would be very interesting to watch.

I went with the first option. Before the part in Homecoming where Baroness corrects herself in referring to him as McCullen I would have guessed we'd see him sans mask. Now, I think we'll see him in the mask, as Destro, first. Then we'll get his story in flashbacks. Jmo, though. No matter which way they do it, I can't wait. They are setting him up to be an awesome character.

I'm interested to see how they handle the mask. From what I've seen, it looks like it has some special jaw articulation, so I assume they will treat it as actual rigid steel, and not a thin layer of metallic paint on the guys head, like it appeared in Sunbow.
