Storyline

After yet another defeat inflicted by G.I. Joe, the immediate subordinates of Cobra's leader, Cobra Commander, have finally come to the end of their patience with his apparent incompetence and his inability to achieve real victories. The leader of the research and interrogations wing, Dr. Mindbender, receives a dream showing the solution. His plan is to collect the genetic material of great warriors and military leaders to create a composite clone that would be the perfect leader for Cobra. Now they set out to put this scheme into motion, and G.I. Joe has very little time to learn of this plot before Cobra becomes that much more a dire threat to the world.

Cobra Creates a New Leader
17 April 2000 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Due to Cobra Commander's continued incompetence as military leader, Dr. Mindbender and Destro hatch a plot to create the ultimate tyrant by combining the DNA of history's greatest conquerors (a concept which predated the similarly-themed Jurassic Park by a decade). The Joes launch an all-out defense of the crypts of Genghis Khan, Sun Tzu, Alexander the Great, and even Vlad the Impaler (Dracula), amongst others, taking them--as usual--all over the world to thwart Cobra's plans.

Unlike the previous G.I. Joe mini-series, this one tends to become somewhat redundant in the second act, as Joe and Cobra clash fangs time and again at grave after grave. Save for that minor liability, the story is intense, replete with humorous dialogue and memorable action sequences.

From the opening showdown against Cobra's new Battle Android Troopers (BATS) to Serpentor's megalomaniacal assault on Washington, D.C., this G.I. Joe adventure more than satisfies. In a cartoon filled with fascinating characters, with admirable heroes and redoubtable villains alike, the new Cobra leader is a welcome addition.
