    Shouldnt King Hsss be a cobra?

    He is the king so wouldn't it have made more sense to make him a King Cobra?

    I've thought about this, too, but figured they didn't because Kobra Khan had already been out for a while.

    I think the hydra is a better choice, but if it were hydra cobras then itd be perfect imo.

    Ooooohh... King Hydra. I LIKE that...


    I'm pretty sure Kobra Khan was the reason for not making ANOTHER cobra character... and maybe something about Gi Joe trademarks or something...

    Though I think the original Serpentor look would have been an AWESOME King Hiss look... O.o

    I like to think Ssssqueeeze as an anaconda. And like Tung Lashor, who likes amphibian, Ssssqueeeze also looks part gator.

    I would think that King Hiss would be a South American Anaconda, the biggest snake in the world according to Black Dynamite.

    For the sake of argument, he has to be half snake half frog, to be a snakemen. He's a hybrid mutant.

    I don't think Cobra Commander would allow it. He's already got one power-mad snakeman in his organization. He wouldn't want another Serpentor in his group.

    But I could easily see him as this kind of cobra...

    If Hsss was anything, he'd most likely be an Inland Taipan (Fierce Snake)... Only the deadliest will suffice in this case!

    I thought he is every snake and not only one, they always colored them differently anyway.

    Thats what makes him King of all snakes and Reptiles(frogs, crocodiles...?)

    Cobras are not the most powerful snakes there is. It's just the most known. Besides, Snake Men are not any particular snake but mostly snake powered beings.

    Kinda strange because a frog is not a snake, or even a reptile for that matter. Nor does it have a tongue like that.

    I like to think that King Hiss has all snake traits at his disposal. Maybe he can flare his hood(s) we just haven't seen it yet

    200X TL was based on a Gila Monster, apparently.

    Which somewhat takes away from the 'Snakemen must be snakes' idea.

    Mattel never really did explain what makes someone a Snakeman, have they?

    that's the very first thing I thought of when I saw this thread subject. By that, I mean the "CO-BRA!" thing.

    No, not as far as I remember.
    With the vintage Tung Lashor being based on a poison dart frog and the 200X one based on a gila monster, I guess there are no realistic connections to actual animals that indicate if they are a "Snakeman".
    And that's ok, because eternian species don't nescessarily follow earth standards. That can be seen with the Andreenids (Buzz Off) and the Arachna (Webstor) who unlike earth spiders and insects are closely related to each other.

    Now a theory:
    The dragon- or dinosaur-like Caligars like Whiplash and Ceratus could be a species closely related to the Snakemen (and by eternian standards actually count as such). Their folk could have distanced themselves from the sinister snakes by their more civilized ways of living and by allying themselves with other species. The same could be said about the Reptons.

    So that might explain why other Snakeman races see them as inferior creatures and even go so far as devouring them.

    What do you think about that?

    interesting theory.

    personally, i don't see snakemen as a race, but as a "cult", give or take, in the same way the horde is an "empire".

    followers of the cult of serpos/unnamed one (as you prefer) gain the title of snakemen and increased "snake themed powers",
    but they belong to vary races: not necessarily reptilian ones.

    But they all look like snakes, well not Hiss always... Lol. Nevermind good point.
