This movie will be great for G.I.Joe and recreating it. Kinda like what Star Wars prequels did for that franchise. Put just enough in there for the oldschool fans and tweak a whole bunch for newer and younger fans to jump on board.
This is not a flame on the prequels or the people that love those films.

Hama is just 1 man in a flood of G.I. Joe story tellers. He usually just made his junk up a few panels in advance, so I don't really count anything he says as GOD LIKE. His stories where good and some stuck in our minds as fact. That is the reason for all the "I don't like the change" banter that is going on. It all boils down to simply having an opinion. I (OPINION) think the movie will suck for me but my son will love it.
I will also befriend Hama on Facebook as a sign of piece. (JOKE)
(THIS) is for all the people out there that cannot tell a joke if it hit them in the ars! You know who you are.....

Even though I enjoyed most of Hama's work he did so some things that was fucking wack. Like killing C.C. and bringing him back. And the creation of Cobra Island was kinda far fetched too. Just because Larry endorses it doesn't necessarily means it will be cool.
In addition, not everybody is Alan Moore. You might want to take into fact that since Larry worked with these people and got to know them, he probably doesn't want to hurt anybody's feelings.
I'm not going to downplay his endorsement of the film because it is important and it's going to sway some fence sitters towards seeing it. The question isn't whether Hama liked the film, but if given the opportunity would this had been the film he would've done.

Hama says Paris Pursuit Snake Eyes is the real Snake Eyes he wanted but needed CGI and current toymaking technology to make the character come to life.
Diogenes, one of the better known proponents of the school of Cynics, was often seen to be strolling about with a lamp in broad daylight and when asked what it was for, he would reply "I'm looking for an honest man."

I love that Mr. Hama has the humility and honesty to point out that HIS GI Joe (While an excellently crafted series that is more than just toys) is not a divine gift to humanity that is to be worshipped by one and all.
I'm not a huge movie supporter beyond the money aspect (Movie will get us more 25th down the line if successful) but it IS growing on me - the previews are getting better, and the toys are out of this world.
I would be a liar to say that Hama's words don't sway me a tad - not that I think he is untouchable when it comes to criticism, but he is an extremely important individual in the world of GI Joe. If he endorses the film, I'll give it a chance.
G.I. Joe fans are the kind of people who demand a steak dinner but will only pay for macaroni and cheese.

I don't understand why people keep bringing up "he created his stories on the fly"... as a negative... uh HELLOOOO!!! GI Joe is not a creator owned property like Todd McFarlane's Spawn. These were monthly comic books... not a Lord Of The Rings trilogy.
Only after the formation of Image Comics did artists and writers get the attention, paychecks, and creator influence which now drive the current comic book industry.
