Im thinking to the mid to late 80's when Cobra was straying slightly from "military" and doing some fantasy stuff..i.e. Croc Master, Raptor, Big Boa, Crystal Ball, Mindbender etc etc...it kinda seems the direction they were going in you would see a Cobra "Zombie"..perhaps re-creations of fallen Vipers. Or a Cobra Vampire...those are REALLY easy storylines and file cards. I wonder if they ever came close to charecters like that?
I know some of you hate those "Cobra-Circus" charecters..but I like Croc Master ALOT and Raptor too...Crystal Ball and Mindbender..ehh? I thought they just "looked" crappy. They couldve made some horror based charecters and done well with the look..I think people that dug the Mindbenders of Cobra may have bought them up as well........Just a question...

Going from Raptor/Crystal Ball/Mindbender/Croc Master to a Zombie or Vampire is a HUGE leap.
Even going from cloning to a zombie or vampire is a HUGE leap.
Croc Master, Raptor and Big Boa; there's nothing fantasy about them. Crystal Ball is a hypnotist, the only "fantasy/sci-fi" element about him was the spinning disk. Mindbender wasn't bad either except for the cloning. None of that stuff was even anywhere near the realm of zombies/vampires.

If I remember correctly didn't Cobra get a zombie when the Eco-Warriors line came out in the 90's? The Toxo Zombie or something like that?

If it were purely biological (Seven Days/Weeks/Years/etc Later) and somewhere in the realm of scientific possibility, then I could see Mindbender creating something like that. It might be a little dark for what Hasbro typically does though.

I suppose in a way Serpentor is a zombie... Just kidding. I don't think zombies have a home in the GI Joe universe.
