    Who is your favorite Cobra character?

    Who is your favorite Cobra character from G.I. Joe? I'd have to go with Cobra Commander. I loved Chris Latta's voice for him. Other favorites of mine: Major Bludd, Storm Shadow, and Firefly.

    Mine has always been Serpentor, not sure which but I love his armor and his story was one of the most intriguing things in the Joe-verse (DD version and RAH)

    Cobra Commander, closely followed by Destro and Zartan. I think the Cobra's are the greatest, best developed bunch of villains of all the 80s properties.

    Serpentor is my least favourite character, from anything, ever.

    My favorite has got to be Storm Shadow. Everyone in the Cobra organization recognizes that he is the baddest mf'er on the team. I think he could follow or disregard any order given to him (if he wanted to or if his honor allowed him to) without any real fear of reprisal. I've always had a thing for the characters of few words who just stand back, look menacing and kick butts when prodded. As Storm Shadow stated once: "Anyone can use a weapon but a ninja is a weapon." Firefly comes a close second (I love the city camo look) and Destro third.

    I don't know about that certainty. Don't get me wrong. I mean I love me some Cobra but I think the Decepticons are pretty good themselves. I would at least say that they are equal if not better developed than Cobra simply because they were more individuals in the Decepticon ranks than the Cobra ranks.

    I'm in total agreeance with 66.6% of this statement. Storm shadow by far is my favorite Cobra. He and Snake-Eyes were the only reason I was interested in the actually figures (I was more impressed with the vehicles). Firefly was also my second. A very "ninja like" character that was an expert at explosives? Got to love 'em. However my third favorite Cobra were the B.A.T.S. not only because I loved robots but I finally had an enemy that could be shot/blown up without having to be removed from the little continuity I had going on in my head.

    I picked Zartan. He was my first Cobra toy as a kid, I love his look, and the Dreadnoks rock. I would have picked Storm Shadow but I don't feel he was a true Cobra. I've always considered him an anti-hero who did bad things in the name of justice.

    Hottest Cobra: Baroness

    Guilty Pleasure Cobra: Serpentor (so cheesy he's cool)

    Most Underrated Cobra: Major Bludd

    Zartan and the Dreadnoks for the win! Baroness is still sexy as i remember her but, Zartan and the Noks were just kick ass. I'd have voted other for Battle Android Troopers (B.A.T.S.) but the Dreadnoks are a little bit cooler than those awesome androids.

    Cobra Commander will always be my favorite, but mostly because I didn't watch much of the toon and I made him sinister as all heck. My favorite toys of all time, though, are any and all B.A.T.s.

    Zartan of course. Loved the figure as well the character in the cartoon. He could dress and be just about anything. Then it would be storm shadow.

    my favorite character on that list is Storm Shadow but as I've made clear several times I prefer Stormy as a Joe so he is not my favorite Cobra character.

    My vote therefore goes to Cobra Commander.

    It would definitely be Techno-Viper. He was my first G.I. Joe figure as a kid and has been my favorite all these years. Croc Master comes in at #2.

    Dr. Mindbender was - and still is - my fave G.I. Joe figure.

    Firefly. I remember he had one of the coolest filecards. I liked Zartan too.

    I like Cobra Commander best, although The Baroness is great, as is Destro, Firefly and, of course, Storm Shadow.

    Oh, that's a hard one. I've always liked the Baroness( ). But as I've watched the animated series recently, I like Cobra Commander a lot. He's just so arrogant and when he has a fit, he's hiliarious! That fit he had in Flint's Vacation had me laughing to the point of tears.

    Cobra Commander. Before attempting to take over the world he was a used car salesman. The man was pure evil from the start.

    OK tough one. Went for Destro, he was always my favorite as a kid. The best character from the show though is the Commander.
