Billy's death was handled disappointingly. It just seemed like "hey that kid is DEAD", and it is quickly passed over. Maybe it was like that due to time constraints, I'm not sure.

IMO I didnt like that at all... I never have liked CC, but your not supposed to.
The only thing about it, is that CC had compassion for his family. The hole reason CC started Cobra, was the loss of his brother. The fact that he killed his son, just shows that he was incompetent to lead, or the writers hit a wall....

There was no "change", it was an evolution. It was Cobra Commander letting go of the last of his "weaknesses" and becoming the complete terrorist. It was a way of showing just how far this guy had come from being a car salesman to the person that ordered the launching of nuclear missiles and destroyed the city of Boston.
This was the Commander saying that there was nothing that would stand in his way.

This was a man that had lost his ideals a long time ago. He no longer cared about anything. Killing Billy was letting go of his old life completely and embracing his new.

I agree with Troynos posts, just too lazy to quote it all..you gotta remember, towards the end old CC was even freaking out some of his most loyal followers, i/e Tomax(Xamot, i forgot which one was in a coma) He lost it so much the he ordered the murder of several Cobra agents held by the Joe's...including Monkeywrench (bloody hell, i nevah e'en got to get a grape soda to go!) Even Major Bludd/Zartan (whoever was the one that saw the hung billy) couldn't believe how far the commander was slippin..i mean, let's be honest, CC was predictable to a point..the last few issues of the DD run..not so much, including
poisoning and killing his son...and i liked it far better then the stumbling,bumbling,oafish,grandstanding CC that he was...
I bet if old Snake Eyes tried to freak him out of leaving turcial abysma.. with his mindset now, he'd probably go one on one with snake eyes! that;s how I saw it.

No kidding, this CC is unhinged, dangerous, and completely ruthless.
Just the way an evil terrorist should be. When you thin about it, many terrorists start with an ideal, some even noble, but when they give over to fanfaticism and become misguided, that's when they go from freedom fighters to terrorists.
I hereby submit to you, America's top home-grown terror leader, Cobra Commander.
