So I finally finished reading Volume 4 of the Classic GI Joe trades, and have read the first 3 issues of Volume 5, and my god, THAT is how Cobra Island came into existence? My god, Cobra Commander continues to impress me with every issue I read. I mean, months ago I made a post talking about how I could not believe how ruthless he was in the comics, but now, he seems to be the freaking smartest man in the world in this series. Not even the DDP comics showed him as being this smart. Anyway, the way they created the island and made it its own legalized nation was just jaw dropping. Eventually there is going to end up being a point where CC is going to stop impressing me.
Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

Cobra Commander is one mean man. He also has a plan for a plan. He is unique in his IQ as well as his ruthlessness. He is gifted with killer association and the means of getting the job done. Thank God that Cobra does not really exist. This world is in bad enough shape. But I have to admit that there is alot of good in this world as well. Oh kick ass customs to bro. Love the Snake Eyes.

That is one of the things that always bothered me about the cartoon. They make CC out to be a bumbling idiot when in the comics he was actually somebody to be feared.

The comics are canon. From S.S. and S.E. relationship, to Cobra Commanders intelligence, hell, the comics even made Serpentor (a little) more realistic in his creation....glad to see someone experience the comics for the 1st time...enjoy the ride...

Good for DrKain..but be warned...there are also moments of sheer stupidity in there as well. Just keep remembering back to classic moments of ruthlessness of CC and you will enjoy it.
To this day, Issues 45-49 remain my favorite issues.

My favorite part of that story was how they had the Lawyers in place and petitioning the UN as it was happening. One of the few times i really enjoyed the good guys "losing" when they have to pack it up and go home at the end.

I still say this would make an excellent sequel to Rise of Cobra. I'd love to see Cobra Island rising out of the gulf, the Joes (even the wounded) battling to knock them off before it's too late, and ending with Duke being told to pack it in and leave.
Forget it Jake, it's Hisstank.
