There aren't enough adjectives for "cool" to describe Beachhead. He threatens to chew on his enemies.

But in the regular comics he was once a used car salesman who felt that the government was out to get the little guys like him. He became excessively paranoid and ran out on his wife and took his son with him. He built up Cobra from the small town of Springfield and recruited those who felt like him, and built an empire through illegal pyramid schemes. Cool stuff.
Same in Reloaded, he was a car salesman, who got screwed over by the IRS, taxed to hell, went bankrupt, his wife divorced him and ran off with her lawyer, so he faked his death, blew up his dealership and went Cobra.
And that is a really well-executed scene. It's entirely from his perspective, and he's not the most reliable narrator, but it's one of the few times there's no question at least he believes what he's saying. He also gives these great little televised pep talks throughout the Reloaded series. I'm especially fond of the one he made before Cobra tried to run off with the Constitution.
Yeah, I can see why Hollywood wouldn't want to use him as their little buddy-film's main villain. He's three-dimensional. </cynicism>
