Duke and any of the joes, really.
I only bought Hit N Run, Snake Eyes for the joe force.
But I'm a fan of Cobra.

will bill is a useless character, he's a goofy ass s.o.b better fit to be a ranch hand or bull rider.

I have hated Dr. Mindbender since they introduced that sucker in 1986.
Seconds, thirds, and fourths are Crystal Ball, Raptor, Big Boa, and Croc Master.
I guess Hasblo was going on an animal motif that year.
I hated them all equally. They are all equally worthless.
When the 86 lineup and thereafter came to being, the concept of Cobra characters took a shift towards these eccentric weirdos. It is my belief Hasblo hired new writers/toy designers for this stuff.
85 on back had Zartan, Firefly, Wild Weasel, Scrap Iron, even the Crimson Twins.
These guys were cool and could stand their ground as a true villan which could be believable. The guy (hope you are reading this thread) who made those characters needs to be given a medal.

Snake-Eyes as super ninja. I liked him as a more mysterious, possibly crazy guy who was great at martial arts, but would just as soon shoot someone, whatever is easier. Commando Snake Eyes was like a navy seal or solid snake, and just like wolverine, works best on a team as a supporting character, so their cool moments have a chance to shine.
Otherwise, I'm ashamee to admit I never cared for most of the 85-86 line-up. I wasnt into Joes during that period and so many characters seemed like replacements or copycats that it gave me sort of a bootleg feeling back then. New leaders, and these new cobra troops were ripping off my Commander's head gear! New marine, even a new roaeblock and snake eyes showed up!
25th gave me a chance to appreciate them as new though!
Seaslug always rubbed me the wrong way too.
