I still like CGI, but must admit that Lady J belongs Flint

I think we can all agree that the cartoon show at that time was crazy. It was aimed at a younger audience, but in changing it they ruined it in a lot of ways.
Lady Jaye certainly belonged with Flint. That was always true in the Comic book and true in the original Cartoon show. Even more so than Scarlett and Snake-Eyes, I think Lady Jaye and Flint belonged together.
His uniform not withstanding, I don't think there's a serious fan among us who can't say that Captain Grid-Iron is a character with great credentials and qualifications, and we need all the combat officers we can get.
Some of us just have more problems with his uniform than others...
I still think he's not bad at all, and his uniform is a heck of a lot better than Tracker, Hardball, the Fridge, Psyche-Out, etc. There's just a lot worse out there, and if I had the opportunity to go back and fix one Joe, there are a lot on that list way ahead of Captain Grid-Iron.
CGI is, in my opinion, a lot like Chuckles. Some people love him, and some people hate him = but he was important enough that it's hard to ignore him. His uniform never bothered me at all - in fact, I kind of liked it. What sold me on the character was the specialty/qualification. We need more covert/Intel guys, and we need more combat officers under the rank of Colonel.
Why aren't there more Joes from the Deep South?
And would it kill Hasbro to give us a Marine Corps Officer?

Flint was cuckolded by Lady Jaye with Gridiron. I wrote all about it in one my fanfictions.

Eh... I'm in the middle on this. Yeah, he has the creds to be a great character, but the football shtick makes him look like a goofy meathead (Bazooka could pull it off because, well, he kinda was a goofy meathead... who could kill tanks). Football grenades, while a novel concept (long bombs anyone?), aren't too practical nowadays that the marines are sporting M-4 launchers that can accurately deliver 8 grenades down a 400m range in under 6 seconds (Futurweapons rules!). I don't care how good CGI's throwing arm is, give a regular blueshirt one of those bad boys and the Cap's losing that battle BAD. I'd still buy a 25th fig of him, if only to put him and Flint in a Thunderdome set.
