The problem with your poll list is that you're combining officers and enlisted personnel as if they're interchangeable. Stalker, Beachhead and Scarlett would never be put in charge of the team. They would serve as NCOs and could be placed in charge of small teams and lead missions, but the command of the team should be given to an officer.

if they did kill off duke and continued for a 3rd season, i'm sure Falcon would have taken his place

Two outside options:
1- You guys are going to hate this, but Sgt. Slaughter. The cartoon version would have been a great Joe commander.
2- Scarlett- A tough female in charge would be awesome!
With everyone saying Falcon, Bechhead and Flint, I wanted to throw 2 different ones out there. Just thinking outsiode the box (I didn't read the whole thread, so if someone already mentioned these, sorry!).

Like the real Army, they'd bring in some douchebag Pentagon chairborne ranger from Fort Mangina and he would come in changing stuff to prove he's the boss. All the Joes would hate him and wish they had Hawk and Duke back.
this new guy, We'll call him D-Ring, would have a Dunkin Donuts coffee mug hung off of his LBE by a steel D-Ring. He would chew the butt of any Joe that had a D- ring on his LBE. The only good thing would be that this guy's wife, a Major in her own right, would work in the Intel shop and would develop crushes on some of the Joes due to dissatisfaction with her husband's inadequacies. She would boost morale by sending these guys boxes of fresh- cooked brownies when they were in the field...
wait what the hell? flashback????

Yeah so what I meant to say was I think the Cartoon lays out Beachhead, and Stalker is a good old Joe but he's pushing retirement. I think a new officer should step up. It may be the next senior, but not necessarily. Command positions are selected, one does not just fall into place. This is because many officers simply do not belong in command, or let's say they may not be "ready" for command.
SO who are our Officer Choices? Torpedo has been a lieutenant for 25 years... Ace is an officer. Who else? I don't have the filecoards with me over here...

But like Freedom said earlier, guys like Ace, Steeler, Cutter, etc. wouldn't be placed in charge of the team, just their respective crafts. Someone like Colonel Courage, Capt. Grid-Iron, or Lt. Falcon would be more qualified to lead the team as a whole. And, if we consider Torpedo a lieutenant, he wouldn't be a bad choice. As a Navy SEAL, he's more than just a diver.

The first time you see this, copy it into your signature on any forum and add 1 to the generation. Social experiment

Yeah if you do a poll you would have to include Falcon. Like him or not many tankers do. I figure in reality the Joe team would be smaller and thus led by a Captain or Major. However my Joe team is larger so I have a few Generals.
But say Hawk and Colton retire, so Flagg III and Courage becomes overall Joe Commander and XO.
If Stalker and Snake-Eyes retire too and Gung-Ho, and then I'd say Beachhead. Otherwise the job of First Sgt belongs to Stalker. That was what Hama had in mind before Hasbro created Duke.
I like to imagine the Joes would have several field commanders each with his own XO and Sgt Maj or First Sgt.
Sure Fire (0-5)
Bullet-Proof (0-4) XO
Mercer (E-9)(Lead NCO)
Jungle Ranger Team
Big Brawler(E-8) (Lead NCO)
Special Force ODA team
Flint (WO-4) (XO)
Beachhead (E-9)(Lead NCO)
SEAL\Force Recon team
Wet-Down (WO-5) (XO)
Gung-Ho (E-9)(Lead NCO)
Major Storm (0-4)
Steeler (0-3) (XO)
Sgt Slaughter or Dodger or Hot Seat (Lead NCO)
Major Barrage (0-4)
Long Range or Short-Fuse (Lead NCO)
Other Joe Infantry Officers who may get teams
