I liked Serpentor in the comics.. in the cartoon he got on my nerves and I still thought CC was more badass in both cartoon and comic... but as a Kid I did LOVE The toy. Thought it was the most cool thing.
I hate the new Version all three attempts suck.. the DVD is better but it still sucks. I'm working on two Custom Serpentors as we speak.

The problems with Serpentor were:
His figure was too regal. Didn't look like someone who'd get in the thick of battle.
He didn't do anything in the comic, appeared in like, 11 issues or so. His big plan was selling Terrordromes or some such nonsense. Lame.
He didn't do anything in the toon, well, save Favorite Things and Sins Of Our Father, two stand out episodes. I did enjoy him drawing the beast away from Cobra Island to protect Cobra, something CC would never have done in his shoes. He was also more pro active in the Movie, I'll give him that.
The pros of Serpentor is:
A enemy who can can battle GIJoe himself. Supernatural strength, control over snakes, the live snake spears were cool.
Making Cobra Commander into a schemer trying to regain control of Cobra. CC is cool as an underdog.
His speech when he took over Washington DC was great stuff.

Serpentor in the comic was great... in the toon he was cool... yet annoying with his "THIS I COMMAND!!!" schtick. The comic though, especially during his first 10 issues or so was actually a really, really good leader for Cobra. Inspiring in issue #50 when he was at the head of the battle leading the charge.
... makes me want to read it again!
I'm working on a custom right now that's looking pretty sweet... I'll share when he's done. If I do another Serpentor custom, it'll be that first appearance look from the comic. Saw one here yesterday that was inspiring!
