We have seen the very first images of the Baroness (Anastasia), much has to be explained...I have got some info on the MARVEL (Volume 1) Baroness and thought I would share this info...just put two and two together...safe to assume we could somewhat put this all together...
Very little is known of the Baroness’ past, except that she was on hand for the Tet Offensive in Southeast Asia, 1968. Visiting her brother, Anastasia is present at a meeting with indigenous relief workers that Eugene was financing. Arriving at a warehouse expected to be full of medical supplies he had donated to their cause, Eugene found nothing but questions and suspicions. When two soldiers arrive, the Baron ushers his little sister into a private office while he has words with them. Discovering they have sold his supplies for money with which to stage their offensive, Eugene is murdered. When Anastasia opens the door, she finds an American soldier standing over her brother with a smoking .45 caliber pistol.
Struck with overwhelming grief, and immediately blaming the American soldier for her loss, the Baroness is inconsolable. She is escorted from the scene as Destro (James McCullen the XXIII) and his son (James XXIV, the current Destro) enter. Destro discovers that Eugene wore a bulletproof vest, easily capable of stopping shots from Snake-Eyes’ .45 caliber handgun. He deduces the truth and clears Snake-Eyes of the crime; too late for the Baroness to hear, and far too late for her to care.
Frustrated and angered, the Baroness spends years decrying the hypocrisy of the American Government, becoming an active participant in militant revolutionary groups, eventually becoming a member of Cobra. In the time between these two events, she crosses paths with James McCullen XXIV, and the two share a romantic relationship (the extent of which has never been revealed).
As Cobra’s second-in-command, the Baroness is on hand for many of Cobra’s schemes, including the Commander’s attempt to steal the G.I.Joe MOBAT during a parade in New York City, and a tireless assault on NASA’s spy satellite rescue mission. The Baroness is also present when Cobra takes Snake-Eyes prisoner, and Dr. Venom subjects him to the Brainwave Scanner. This meeting is significant for the fact that in the years since her brother’s death, Snake-Eyes has been through so much trauma and disfigurement that he is completely unrecognizable to the Baroness. She remains unaware of her connection to Snake-Eyes for a long time after this initial meeting.

Man!!! How are they going to fit everything on screen?! Paramount will have to do three films just to explain everyone's backgrounds! Then again, they may not even try for some characters. I think that would be a bad idea, though! IMO, if you're going into detail for one, you NEED to do them all!

A terrible thought just crossed my mind.
What if... the Baroness' dead brother is actually Rex (Duke's pal)?
As in: they take him for dead, but he's not. And then he returns as CC (Duke & The Baroness ignoring his true identity at first).
It'd be like Star Wars all over again.

You mean the Original Star Wars, right? If this movie is 25% as good as the last three SW flicks, it's going to suck more than "Movie Starscream".
