A compilation from the old Marvel series invokes a myraid of questions. It's called the BEST OF DUKE, yet in the first story he briefly appears at story's end to introduce him, the next story he's central yet doesn't get the big ticket (capturing CC, someone else actually does) and as far as the rest of the stories in the book...get this..HE'S BARELY SEEN IN IT. There are some instances where he appears in one panel, maybe two, but there are some stories where he isn't even in it. This is really a wrongly entitled book. I mean in the BEST OF HAWK book we actually see HAWK. I didn't have most of the Marvel series. Is this pretty much how Duke was used throughout?

They are select marvel issues put into a tpb.
These are a waste of money. Buy yourself a Stinger insted.
Alley Viper attached to the Strike Team Urban Division 82nd.
Cobra wants you! I'm looking for some ruthless Vipers to fill the ranks. Joes need not apply.

Duke was pretty much a secondary character throughout the book's run, despite getting a big "push" from around issue 22 to issue 42. His presence was due to Hasbro and the Sunbow cartoon.
In summary, here are some Duke comic book highlights:
While in command of the team, Duke let Cobra Commander escape, blew the mission to prevent Cobra Island's formation, let Cobra discover the location of the Pit and was in charge when 7 Joes were gunned down by the SAW Viper in Trucial Abysmia.
Duke was a tool and a book with some half-a**ed stories is probably the "best" of the character.
