There are at least 3 times we've seen Stormy use a gun, other than what's been mentioned. One was Yearbook 3, when Storm Shadow & Scarlett rescue Snale Eyes from the Cobra Consulate. The next is issue 96, part of the "Snake Eyes Trilogy", and the last was in DDP'S #38. Obviously, SE has used a gun far more than SS. Tommy was usually portayed as a more "traditional" ninja.

Issue 62 - The picture at the time was 15 years old.
Trying to figure out the timeline makes my head hurt...
Firefly was a Koga Ninja first, Onihashi's Assistant second, and then became known to the Arashikage as the Faceless Master. And since Firefly worked for Cobra Commander before Storm Shadow, he is technically the first Cobra Ninja.
I always thought it would have been cool if Firefly was just one of Zartan's many personalities.

So let's see... Firefly was a Koga Ninja then the assisstant, then Snake-Eyes joined the Ninjas and CC contacted Firefly to kill him.
So how'd CC know about Firefly?
Man, it's too damn confusing...

Thanks for the scans daremo. Like Troynos, I'd always just assumed that the guy with the blurred face in the Arashikage family photo was Zartan (I stopped reading the Marvel comic around issue #102 or so).
So I guess it is officially Firefly. Still, it seems like Zartan being that guy would have been a more streamlined and less convoluted plot development.

This is directly from issue #126 on the letters page-
" Many readers assumed the faceless man in the family portrait was Zartan. He claimed he was at the ceremony where Onihashi the Master swordsmith presented the clan with an art sword and "somebody took a picture". Everybody in the group photo was eithier a family member of direct decent or a Master- Zartan was never a master of the Arashikage clan! It is doubtful they would have included an apprentice in the portrait.
The formal Arashikage family portrait known to most readers is the one that the Blind Master whips out in G.I.Joe #62, page 10. This was an EARLIER portrait and the Blind Master refers to the blurred man as Onihashi's assistant and an adept practitioner of the Koga ninja style. Zartan was never an adept of the Koga style! This, therefore was the assistant who preceded Zartan. I've been saving this one up for years!- Larry"
Hope this clears it up.
