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. Written by

The Joe's steal a laserdisc from Cobra the enemy. This is ironic since this movie is the only G.I. Joe episode on laserdisc. See more »
In part five, Bazooka is with the rescue team at the Terrodrome. Then it cuts back to Hawk talking to all the other Joes in the meet room of their base. As it pans over the audience, Bazooka is shown sitting in a seat. But a few moments later when the rescue team returns and walks in on them, Bazooka is back with them. See more »
I'll betcha I watched this film 25 times when I was 11 or 12. I actually didn't get into G. I. Joe at a very young age like many people from my generation. I was always more a Star Wars and Ninja Turtles kinda guy (kid). Somewhere along the line, I was introduced to the Marvel Comics G.I. Joe saga and realized just how genius and complex the storyline was. Larry Hama (whom can be found on this site for the three or four things he's acted in) is an excellent writer and I wish he'd work on more. However, the cartoon was always far less superior to the comic, and even this, which is one of the better stories for the cartoon, is not even close to the comic. Still, I believe any person who was a fan of G.I. Joe growing up might get a kick out of watching this. It is available on DVD now, though I have to wonder how easy it is to find. A little known fact about this film is that Duke originally died from Serpentor's snake. Larry Hama never liked the Duke character and Hasbro gave the cartoonists permission to kill off the character. However, the public outcry from Optimus Primes death in the Transformers film forced the filmmakers to alter the dialog so that it would say he went into a coma.
