COBRA COMMANDER is totally ruthless and without a conscience. The leader of the COBRA forces, he wants two simple things: to take over the world through his COBRA organization, and to destroy the GI JOE team. Money and power are what he's after, and he'll do anything to get them. He demands complete loyalty from his forces and gives out harsh punishments to anyone who questions him. He likes to be in the thick of the action when his forces go up against the GI JOE team. He hates DUKE, the leader of the GI JOE team. He believes that if he can capture DUKE, then all his evil plans will fall into place.
