"MOMMY I WANTS TEH BIRD MAN KAN JOO BAI FER ME"
Ostensibly he's Cobra's Falconer. Cobra Commander has the pretentions of royalty - the cap, the scepter, the throne - so why not falconry I guess.
Raptor's brilliantly crafted back story is that he was a "yuppie tax consultant" who became obsessed with birds of prey. While he was poaching on a Cobra ranch (Cobra owns ranches? Ok...) he was caught by Destro (Destro moonlights as a ranch security guard, all that special tech is expensive) and was signed up for a spot in Cobra on the spot.
It's also rumoured that Raptor was working on a genetically engineered Super Combat Parrot that was designed to take on Polly.

We should have a poll with the top 8 or so nominations from this thread and participants can pick 2...
I'm just piling on, but when I first saw the topic all I could think of was that stupid bird headed guy that made me stop collecting Joe's. Never knew his name until everyone esle said "Raptor"! I guess I wasnt alone. That was really the beginning of the end for me, as I probably bought 1 or 2 more figs after that until VvV.
So for vintage i'll go with Raptor, Serpentor (stopped watching Sunbow when he appeared), and any neon figure not named Sci-fi (saw this on the first couple pages as well).
Any Sigma Six.
For newer stuff I'll go with the ROC Scarlet that looks like Axl Rose at the VMA's with his facelift and dreads. I know I'll get killed for this, but I hate ROC Cobra Comander.
Not even sure they have any Cobra La figs, but if they do, then you'd have to add them (I think I saw the purple guy with wings at a local comic store, but I usually block out bad memories). I only heard about the movie in the last 2 years or so and watched it a couple months ago. I couldn't even get thru it and will never try :(
Anyone else down for the poll???

The worst ever...Crocmaster! What was this guys purpose??? I guess he sits by a lake, river, moat, or pond, and waits for GI Joes to show up just so he can sick his crocodile on them....?? Wouldn't a big croc do this on their own anyway...and isn't a crocodile's method of attack a surprise....So this guy is standing there telling the Joes when you come close to the water my croc is going to getcha...??
I have a feeling Crocmaster was Serpentor's "partner" who needed a job, and well, Serpentor gave one to him...

A Joe unit's encounter with Crocmaster:
Croc: Ah hello Joes. Come close to the water, I have a surprise for you!
Stalker: It is a crocodile isn't it....
Croc: ummmm NO it is a shark!
Gung Ho: But that is fresh water...
Croc: Ok Ok, it is a genetically engineered shark with a laser beam!
Stalker: Okay guys let's move out.
