I also do not want Cobra to be derived from Cobra-La. I didn't really like it at the time. However, I now appreciate H.P. Lovecraft and could see the Cobra-La concept introduced as a standalone faction.aceofknaves wrote: ↑Tue Nov 16, 2021 4:07 amI don’t want Cobra Commander getting saddled with a Cobra-La back history. Nope nope nope. “Used car salesman not snake man” is my “trukk not munkey” cause.
That said: Cobra-La figures were awesome back in the day and would be even more awesome now. I frigging LOVED those things: they were my entry point to learning to love the fiction of H.P. Lovecraft, seriously. I feel like Classified Cobra-La would be incredible. Nemesis Enforcer with interchangeable big-ass wings and Cthulhu tentacles!! Come on!! I need a legion of creepy guards with organic-y scimitars and big cloaks!
Modern take on G.I. Joe issue #2. In 2026 incredible life-saving therapies similar to gene editing technology CRISPR is developed by joint Russian-American research into something found in the formerly frozen Arctic area. When something happen at the remote lab station Joes are dispatched and find dead Spetsnaz and scientists.
A Cobra Snow serpent team infiltrated the facility and made off with the "Golobulus spores." So, Cobra use the Lovecraftian/John Carpenter material from the thawing arctic to make Cobra-La type things that go awry and evolve into their own faction hostile to all humanity.
