At the end of the DD run I really, REALLY wanted to see Cobra Commander dead.
Hawk standing (... ok, um... sitting?) over him with a smoking gun, saying:
"Now it's over you sick bastard!"
And that's what they planned on doing... or something similar... but Hasbro told them 'NO!'
That's why I don't count on the new book to be free of their influence.

To keep with a moderate "realism" some folks need to bite it IMO. As long as CC stays kicking, anyone should be fair game. No cobra without him. Even though I have a feeling this reboot will wuss out a bit, it would be neat to throw some shockers out there. As for those with a fanbase, they can always wait til the next reboot to get their faves back LOL.

Killing characters for the sake of killing is a hack move to begin with. If an author can't generate drama without wiping out characters left and right they're obviously not talented enough for the job. People like that one trick pony JK Rowling who's imagination stretches only as far as her ability to steal use character deaths as a crutch, and eventually people get sick of it. Sure people can die, but it should be rare (For known characters) and there should be a good reason for it.

G.I. Joe is a military-themed creation. Using this reasoning, characters should die. In real life combat situations, it isn't the weakest or most disliked "characters" that die. Anyone can be hit by a bullet, or blown up in a building.... that being said, if anyone dies, I would like for it to be a shock - completely unexpected.
I wouldn't want to see any characters that are created for obvious cannon fodder. Same goes for creating a character with a cloud of "oh-he's-gonna-bite-it" hanging over him.
As much as Snake-Eyes is a sweet freakin character, I wouldn't mind seeing him being put out of commission once in a while... but only to return and kick some ass again, of course.

Duke. I never liked Duke. I'm a fan of Flint. Duke needs to fall off a cliff without his jetpack.

People like Raptor, Short Fuse, Sneak Peek, Zap, etc can all get offed. Certain characters should be offed in grandiose ways, such as Duke (I see a trend), Lowlight, Covergirl, Mindbender and others.

Cobra la at the hands of the commander and serpentor,too. Zantan's sister for being a bimbo and mainframe for falling for a snake.
