I'm sure many of us would agree that the on-again/off-again relationship between Snake Eyes & Storm Shadow was one of the comic's most intriguing aspects. This dichotomy was great. In your opinion, when was the relationship between them at its best?
Was their relationship most 'right' when they were sworn enemies or when they were 'brothers?' Were they meant to be brothers and it was tragic when they were against one another? Or were they meant to be enemies, with transitory times of peace between them?
I'll probably disagree with most here & say it was best when they were close friends. Storm Shadow sending Snake Eyes off on his mission at the end of issue #103 with the Arashikage mindset encapsulates it for me.

SE and SS and all things ninja Arashikage are by far my favirote aspects of the Joe-verse. I voted as sword brothers...but, I probably would never love G.I. Joe so much if it wasnt for the early stories in both the cartoon and comic where they rivaled each other.
Having said that, I was a huge Ninja Force fan, especially in the comic book..SS being leader of his own Joe team, working side by side with SE was awesome though and won me over.

I hated the SE/SS relationship and it dominated. At times it ruined the comics for me.
Could have done without it.

According to the comic universe, they were always Sword Brothers. Even when Storm Shadow was working for Cobra, he was doing it to find his Uncle's killer. Once uncovered he became a Joe and stayed that way until getting brainwashed a time or two (first from Firefly and later Cobra Commander). When in his right mind, Storm Shadow was a good guy.

Storm Shadow will always be a Cobra. I never bought him as a Joe. Even in Ninja force, he was still a bad guy.

Storm Shadow should always be a bad guy. When I was a kid I always used him as a bad guy and ruthless assassin.

This is pretty hard to speak on because I am not so familiar with the history yet based on the cartoon series, storm shadow is the man....let them be enemies, let spirit jump in and help snake eyes out cuz storm shadow is that much of a threat........

Best as brothers. Storm Shadow was never an evil character. Flawed, but not evil. His character and story had a lot of depth, and I'm glad Jerwa finally made things right with Master and Apprentice Vol. 2 by DDP, where Storm Shadow finally frees himself from the brainwashing and is granted leadership of the Arashikage Clan as the Phoenix Master.
You take away all that, and just leave him an evil ninja then all you have is a generic ninja in white. For that matter, I didn't even like how he was evil in Resolute, nor was I happy with him being a bad guy in the movie(though in the superior characterization in the IDW comic adaptation, he tells Snake Eyes that he did not kill the Hard Master...just imagine if that had happened onscreen RIGHT before Snake Eyes stabbed him...one hell of a cliffhanger and it would evoke a much more powerful emotional response).

I like them as friends, but after watching the box set it really seems like Storm Shadow has more random animosity towards other joes, like Spirit? and Quick-Kick? instead of SE.
But yeah, he's the baddest of bad guys when he's on that side, and a pretty stellar good guy when he's good. I like the two ninjas when they're brothers, and team up to super glue kamakara's locker shut and peak in the joe girls dressing room.

I agree Storm Shadow is not "evil"...victim of circumstance yes. Gotta do what ya gotta do..yes.
Anything he may have done that could be charecterized as bad or evil...if you follow his history, he has been more honorable then anything else.
Storm Shadow and SE...I wish they had theyre own monthly comic book that spotlights the awesome, in depth history both of these guys have.
Storm Shadow for Mayor.
