"R.I.P."[edit | edit source]
Various characters — Cobra and G.I. Joe alike — share their thoughts on Cobra Commander's death.
- The Baroness believes that the Commander will do more good for Cobra as a martyr than as a living leader.
- Croc Master thinks that Cobra and their rules are stupid, and that "meat is meat".
- Crystal Ball waxes philosophical about how death is inevitable and the only choice is how one approaches it.
- Destro sees the Commander as a man who could be reasoned with, as long as you made yourself needed by him.
- General Hawk observes that they'll need to rethink everything they know about Cobra, and isn't looking forward to what comes next.
- Agent Helix thinks it's a shame — she wanted to be the one to kill him.
- Krake thinks that the Commander was weak and obsessed with guile and influence, rather than military conquest, and thinks Cobra will be stronger without him.
- Mainframe speculates that he might still be alive, before, er, going on a tangent about Andy Kaufman.
- Serpentor sees the Commander as having ascended to a higher segment of a great snake... though Serpentor will remain always, helping others to "molt".
- Tomax Paoli admired Cobra Commander, but always found his mirrored faceplate — that only ever showed you a worse version of yourself — unsettling, and found its shattering cathartic.
- Zartan is unaffected.
