File Name: Destro, James McCullen
Primary Military Specialty: Weapons Manufacturer
Birthplace: Calllander, Scotland
Once a major supplier of advanced weapons and vehicles and advisory to Cobra Commander, Destro now purses his own grandiose schemes. He has created a small army of Iron Grenadier troopers from his private bodyguards, and will use them to take control of the Cobra organization. A man with a conflicted sense of loyalty, he struggles to act with honor toward the man he swore to serve- Cobra Commander-- yet he feels it is his duty to remove and incompetent leader from power for the good of the organization.
"If you wish to be an Iron Grenadier, you must do your utmost at all times. I will not tolerate mediocre performance: you will be the best, or suffer the consequences."
Code Name: Iron Grenadier
Destro has built up his army of Iron Grenadier troopers from among his bodyguards. Chosen for their endurance, tenacity, and pure meanness, Iron Grenadier troopers are part of the weapon supplier's plans to take control of the Cobra organization. The Iron Grenadier force has been trained to infiltrate an area and spread panic and chaos, resulting in an increased demand for weapons-supplied by Destro, of course. An Iron Grenadier trooper is an obnoxious salesman with guns. In fact, he gets a commission on any armaments sold because of his effort, and receives incentive points for starting riots and encouraging armed revolts.
"We have no hearts, we have no fears, we'll sell you guns, we'll sell you spears...We are the Iron Grenadiers!" (part of the Iron Grenadier marching song.)
