I liked how Serpentor immediately started to get the soldiers to like him by getting into combat in the comics.
He got respect for what he did, not who he was (like Cobra Commander did).
In the Cartoon he was just loud and noisy and annoying to me and he definitely overused his catch phrase, which got even more annoying.
"Cobra Commander get out of my way, This I command!"
"Zartan what is the status tell me now, This I command!"
"I am sitting down now, where is my throne, I demand to know where my throne is, This I command!"
Shesh, command less you dolt and do it yourself instead.

I liked the character in the comics, but the cartoon version ruined it completely for me. And while I liked the character, his costume was just too ridiculous for me to accept; a Marvel Universe reject. Proof that cocaine and marijuana use was rampant in the 80s.
Matter of fact, when I get a moment, I'm pulling the head off my Serpentor figure and sticking it on some large-bodied figure...maybe my Python Patrol Copperhead or an EEL figure, and THAT will be my Cobra super-soldier with the name Serpentor.

ALTHOUGH on retrospect, after viewing "Arise Serpentor, Arise!" I actually enjoyed that better than many of the multi-part series that came before. "Pyramid of Darkness" makes Serpentor's story seem epic. The only thing I'd have changed? That "AS,A" would have ended with Serpentor's destruction , thus making him a one-story character instead of CC's replacement.
