This goes to gi joe in general, I think he really should be cobra's ninja but at times he could be a good guy like in America's Elite.

(If we're talking about Resolute) I think the new origin story made it pretty clear he's going to stay Cobra.
Originally he didn't know who killed the Hard Master, he was framed for the crime and he joined Cobra to find the real killer.
This time around it seems as if he orchestrated the whole thing.

What do you mean worthy opponent? Isn't Ninja Zartan worthy? That mohawk alone would break Snake Eyes' sword and slice him in half!

I say keep Storm Shadow the way he is, torn between the two sides and build up Firefly for Cobra

Ninjas just aren't meant to be good guys.
They are trained assassins.
Snake Eyes apparently lost his way when his master was killed.

I love Storm Shadow to death. One of my favirote charecters of all time. One of the huge reasons I love him is that serving Cobra, being a Joe, siding with SE and also fighting against him, plus his constant inner conflict as to where he belongs and the loyalty to his past.....I can almost NOT give a straight answer here. In the early Marvel days, the fact that CC had a ninja as a bodyguard was the coolest damn thing ever, I thought anyway.
As the story and origins unfolded, I challenge anyone to argue the fact that his story line doesnt rival ANY of the other Marvel greats.
Even the Sunbow stuff was cool..when he let Spirit out of the prison in "Countdown For Zartan" because he knew it was such a lowely death for such a formidable advesary. Showing respect for the enemy..even though he is employed by a snake like CC (thats the Flint in me talking). Cool stuff.
Figure wise..hmmm, for me, original SS all the way, though none of them dissapoint. Its the original all the way. BUT!! When the hooded "Joe" SS came out I loved it, and love it now..and I think that filecard says it all. Something along the lines of if Snake Eyes asks very nicely he will help the Joes out.
I celebrate SS past and when you 1st think SS, you think...Cobra guy. In my "perfect" Joeverse...I like to think Stormy is in seclusion, at peace with all the drama that went down. He is constantly studying to be a better martial artist and ninja. He is still a champion of the Arashikage. The personal matters with SS and FF are over, as they are with SE. When Snake Eyes needs help, or the past rears its head..they team up (America's Elite? I know).
So thats about it, I keep him somewhat neutral and an entity of his own, when SE needs him he is a Joe. Other then that he is Arashikage Clan, his Cobra days are done.
Yeah I know...all that typing and I still didnt give you a straight answer.
Man its gonna piss me off when the movie comes out and he looks like a toolbox.

G.I. Joe. I'm open to all the new continuities of G.I. Joe that aren't tied to the Marvel run but the Marvel run has always been my favorite.
Storm Shadow has a lot of depth, he is a noble figure, a tragic hero. He was never evil. Sure he had his flaws, and he had inner demons and turmoil to fight off, but he was always a heroic character. He had to live a lie to find the truth, and that lie was that he was evil, which in reality he wasn't. Once he found the truth, he didn't need to be with Cobra any longer, so I prefer him as a joe.
Sure he was with Cobra sometimes afterwards but only because he was brainwashed. The key aspect of him is that he is a hero who must live a lie to find the truth, and he isn't perfect, he has flaws which he must face. Take away all of that, and he's just a generic evil ninja in white.
