I'm pretty new to the Tank and have noticed that A LOT of people are not too excited about the Joe movie. So this leads me to my question.
If you had the chance to write the Gi Joe movie script, what would it be about? Would it hold true to the comics or cartoon, or would you go outside the box and create a brand new storyline? Would favorite heroes die? Would the most trusted of Joes actually be an agent of Cobra?
So this is my question. What story would you write?
I know there are a lot of creative fans on this board and I look forward to hearing your stories. Sorry if this question has already been asked

I would go outside the box for the most part. I think you would have to keep some of the back stories for the characters, but I would make a whole new storyline.
I like the idea of Cobra working with today's terrorist, and having GI Joe fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. I would make the movie very reality based, think "Blackhawk down", or "Clear and present danger", kind of a movie.

Funny I was just talking about this in another thread. I wrote my version about ten years ago think I would have to re write it now.
Basically my version visits the Joes about five years after the team is disbanded. Everyone thinks CC is dead, but Billy ends up taking on the hood himself because of a near death accident and a little of Dr. Mindbenders work. So it follows the aftermath of the comics.
Maybe I'll do some revamps on it and post it on here sometime see what everyone thinks.

Outside the box. The comics and cartoon don't hold up as well over time. The core concept remains the same. Would lose alot of the connections for the characters (the SE, SS, Firefly would be about it, no CC connections to SE).
And I'd majorly tone down the size of Cobras armies, make CC a political mastermind. Cobra would be a behind the scenes kind of force. They'd have their hands into everything. There wouldn't be a conflict in the world that didn't have Cobras hands in it somehow.
The Joes would be a smaller force, rapid deployment, highly skilled. Total black ops unit. Completely independent. They gather their own intelligence and deal with it how they want.
Cobra would be a complete shadow force. Behind the scenes, whispered about but never seen. CC has his own plans for the world and no one can follow his plans. Some conflicts he works to stop, some he works to start. Some he'll get to a certain point and then pull out his backing.

i would have Cobra stumble upon a secret society of ancient serpentine like creatures who are mad at the fact man has evolved and ruined their kindom, and then have these creatures plot to de-evolutionize mankind. I'd start with CC being turned into a snake and going around sahying he wasssssss onncee a man
