GI Joe: Sailor
Join Date: Feb 2009
I was just glancing at a picture of the old Snakes Eyes and thought how modern he looks. So my question is this: How ahead of the time was GI Joe? Is it still valid?
Now green shirt joes are behind, IMO. But a lot of the other Joes are still pretty advanced and some are modern now compared to when it first came out. I find GI Joe still very relevant in modern America. I do feel that if Cobra were an Islamic terrorist group that Hasbro would get put out of business, even if I think it would add to the whole theme: American heroes fighting terrorists. I am enjoying Chuck Dixon's take on GI Joe and I am curious as to where the film will take the license.

Joe was never ahead of the times. Unless you count the weird use of lazer weapons. I think they we're in-line with the world at that point.
Welcome to the tank.

Cobra wants you! I'm looking for some ruthless Vipers to fill the ranks. Joes need not apply.
