From within their temple in Japan, the Arashikage Clan has spawned some of the world's most elite ninja warriors. Many famous techniques were developed and mastered over the centuries by the Arashikage. These techniques, through countless hours of repetition, have made the Arashikage ninja a very formidable and proficient human weapon. Over time, many masters have taken charge of developing these warriors and leading the Arashikage Clan. Eventually this duty befell the individual known as the HARD MASTER.
Years later, an assassin was sent by a young COBRA COMMANDER to the Arashikage Temple to assassinate the Young Master's rival. Mistakenly, the assassin's arrow landed in the Hard Master rather than the intended target. The clan mistakenly blamed Thomas for his uncle's murder, which led to his defection from the clan. Thomas eventually joined the COBRA organization and adopted the moniker of STORM SHADDOW while his rival became known as SNAKE EYES and would later join the G.I. JOE team. These two warriors would continue their storied rivalry, which began many years ago on the grounds of the Arashikage Temple.
Iceberg grew up in hot weather, and he hated it. As soon as he was old enough to enlist, he signed up for duty in Alaska. The cold is his element - he's not happy until the mercury drops well below zero. Iceberg possesses both the knowledge and ability to endure freezing temperatures. This is not to say he's impervious to the lethal effects of hypothermia, hence his specially insulated uniform with synthetic fur. He respects the cold and uses it to his advantage.
Keep checking the mailbox, Iceberg is shipping out to club members. Check out all the Iceberg images after the jump.

Looking 200-300 years in the future, Cobra, a ancient secret society whose list of historic leaders/Cobra Commanders include Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Genghis Khan, and Hitler, finally succeed in taking over the world through the massive use of nukes.
Survivors of that nuclear holocaust find themselves cast into a future dark age under fuedal law with Cobra dominating every aspect of their lives. It's a high tech cyber punk industrial wasteland world.
For those who choose not to live as a subject of Cobra, their only choice is to escape into the Badlands, vast areas of nearly uninhabitable wasteland, where they live as outlaws, bandits, pirates, and or freedom fighters.
