What the heck!? Whats with all the emotion! I don't think Overkill is that emotionally unstable if he plans to try to take over Cobra in the next theme.

Comics aren't the same as the cartoons.

Also, Overkill just got turned into a cyborg recently, so he's just settling into the roll.

Yeah, the Battle for Power between The Coil, Cobra, Dreadnocks, M.A.R.S. and in the middle of all that, G.I. Joe! And I thing Overkill is one of the best characters from the new series (even if he was an awesome character like the original S.A.W. Viper before!)

This issue is really great, man!

You'll have to cut me some slack, I'm still waiting to read #21. ;)

You want to know what I'm disappointed about? Devil's Due went straight to the "3.75 inch version" of Overkill!!! This means that there probably will never be a "version 1" of Overkill in the G.I. Joe comics series! (For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, check the various figs. of Overkill on this very web-site!)

I'm really bummed. I love my original Overkill with his twin guns that pop out of his chest and his freaky clawed arm. I really wish that D.D. had presented this version first before the "updated" 2000 version... (Sigh):(

Yeah, I actually have the BAT 6pack version Overkill but if you look at the chest that red thing is the gun. And the hinges on his right side make the chest openable. I think its Overkill's best version because of the hidden guns.

I like the current 3 3/4" version. I also appreciate DD's version of him in the book. I think I would have mixed emotions if Cobra did a Robo-Cop on me.

All I'm saying is that now the "original" version of Overkill does not (and never will) exist in the G.I. Joe comics universe. Silly or not, I now have an action figure that "doesn't exist"! Oh, the inhumanity!!! Why, God? Why? Have You no mercy??? :( :( :( "Oh, Overkill, Overkill, wherefore art thou "Overkill"? - "Juliet" B.A.T. v. 3.2 (high on battery acid) :cool:

I like how smooth the transition from Overkill the human to Overkill the cyborg went. They didn't just toss the character in there but showed how he was and how it was all happening.
