The other has him with black hair, a 5 a'clock shadow, and shooting a pistol.This leads to thinking that CC's real name might be Fred and the Seigies might be made to look like him.
By the way, was that issue #100 you took the photocopy from?

CC as the model for the Freds doesn't cut it for me.
When Fred VII took his place, he unmasked in front of the Baroness on Cobra Island so she could verify his identity as she was the only one who knew what he looked like.
I prefer the Snake Eyes Declassified look. Just come average looking everyday guy.

There was one issue in which a state trooper recognized Cobra Commander. If he was wearing a fake mustache and wig then how did he recognize him? And as it was pointed out, in one of the last issues CC unmasks again and he has the ponytail.

It's all based on the artist's preference in the comics, so he changed a bit. Same goes for us. I like him as the mustache-wearing car salesman, but the DD version is fine with me too. And even the Fred makes sense, but something about it I just don't care for.
Wasn't Cobra Commander BALD in one of those 25th anniversary comic pack comics? He was wearing a trenchcoat, hat and sunglasses but I couldve swore he was bald, which I didn't care for.

I think him looking like Fred was brilliant - and would have created some amazing stories. Think about it: no one know which one was the real you. But being CC, he would then constantly fear one of them usurping him (just like one Fred did), thus he would change his own appearance slightly to make sure people inside his circle could tell. If you go back, the beatnik thing was a disguise, but later it is clear that the artists began to accept it as his appearance. Maybe this is just part of the genius of CC: no one really knows his real appearance?

Since the comics painted CC as sort of a "psycho libertarian", I like to think that he looks like Ron Paul
But I like the concept of his evolving looks and how we never really see his "true" face. Something that the new "Origins" series seems to get-- in this new "Chimaera" character turns out to be CC.
I think it was Alfred Hitchcock who said that something's much scarier if you DON'T show it. Where it's left to the audience to decide just how spooky the unseen threat is. This is a great concept and terrific hook for the audience.
One example of this is the original Predator movie. For 75% of the flick, we don't know or see what's stalking Arnold, Jesse and the boys. We see as much as they do. Really sucks you in as a viewer and probably why all the sequels stunk-- there was no mystery.
