SNAKE EYES learned his top combat skills in missions around the globe. A tragic helicopter mission took away his voice and scarred his face. That's why he communicates with sign language and never removes his mask around others. He studied mystical martial arts with the Arashikage clan, which is also the family of master ninja STORM SHADOW. SNAKE EYES is an expert in all disciplines of martial arts and silent weapons. He can move silently and without being seen. At one time, he and STORM SHADOW were sword brothers, linked by spirit and tradition. Now that STORM SHADOW is part of the evil COBRA organization, there is no escape from a final battle between two of the world's greatest martial arts fighters.
"The ability to move quickly and silently is my greatest weapon."
COBRA COMMANDER is totally ruthless and without a conscience. The leader of the COBRA forces, he wants to destroy the G. I. JOE team. Money and power are what he's after and he'll do anything to get them. He demands complete loyalty from his forces and gives out strong punishments to anyone who questions him. He hates DUKE, the leader of the G. I. JOE team. He believes that if he can capture DUKE, then all his evil plans will fall into place.
"COBRA COMMANDER is as cunning and dangerous as the reptile for which he is named. Like a snake, he is always shedding his skin, escaping danger then rebuilding his operations overnight."
