Cobra Commander G.I. Joe Retaliation


Storm Shadow is Snake Eyes arch enemy and greatest adversary. After being accused of murdering his teacher The Hard Master, the arashikage and his childhood friend Snake Eyes cast Storm Shadow out where he became bitter with his hate and began his quest for revenge. He is on a mission of self-discovery and seeks the truth behind the circumstances of The Hard Master's assassination. In this film, he is brought to face justice--captured by Snake Eyes and Jinx and turned over to face The Blind Master himself with great many questions surrounding the Blade of Justice.

Am I the only one that thinks they look like toys?

They're based off toys so is that a compliment?

Now we've got a proper character profile.
Thanks!
Cobra Commander's is rather short and Storm Shadow, there are loads of facts missing. I mean loads...

Under Cobra Commander's history it says " While not physically intimidating, Cobra Commander inspires tremendous fear " :D

@Wildaniel

Traditionally Storm Shadow has always been innocent. It was Zartan, under the orders of the man who would become Cobra Commander, who murdered The Hard Master. It's why Storm Shadow chose to infiltrate COBRA in the first place. However, the movie turned him into more of a sociopathic dick than he's been portrayed as. Maybe they'll play the whole Cobra Commander's paranoid brainwashing angle to spin that after he's resurrected.
