    Your Joe Comic "Moment"...

    What's the one moment from the Joe comic that you just can't forget? Ok...maybe not one, you can list more than that, but let's say what are the FEW moments in the comic run that you remember so fondly--especially if you were reading it back then and absolutely did not know what was coming next.

    For me, despite a ton of good stuff coming before, my moments are all right around issue #100...a little before and a little after.

    The return of CC of course, "killing off" a bunch of Cobras, some memorable, some not.

    Destro finally revealing his face to see this almost movie-star looking guy underneath plunk his mask down onto a motel bed and embrace the Baroness.

    And of course...the SAW Viper killings. Doc being the saddest, for me. "They killed the Doc..."

    Hawk & Roadblock enter an embassy to escort out the US ambassor while the entire 3rd world city is in the mists of revolution. A looter is about to set fire to the United States flag, and Roadblock politely ask him to stop destroying US property and vacate the premises. The looter spits on his head. Roadblock proceeds to stick his .50 cal in the looters face, and threats to turn him into a fine red mist if he doesnt listen to the first request. The looter yells out, "You're crazy! There are people walking out of here with IBM typewriters and you would shoot me over a flag?" Roadblock replies . . .

    When Cobra tricked the Joes to drop enough bombs to cause the fault line under the Gulf of Mexico to become active and thus we had the formation of Cobra Island.

    Ace and Wild Weasel saluting each other after one hell of a dogfight

    The picture of Cobra Commander kicking a dog after his return from death. That always cracks me up. Sums up his whole character in one fell swoop of his boot
    Whatever doesn't make me stronger only kills me

    Yah that sucked how Overkill killed Doc just like how Draco killed Apollo in Rocky 4. What issue did Destro take off his mask cause i'd like to read it and sadly for CC in the next issue of G.I Joe he might have another long time away from the series whitch is sad.

    The one moment that has always stuck out for me was in 48 I believe. Destro checking Stormshadow's pulse after being gunned down by the Baroness. That scene has stuck in my mind through all of these years.

    Thumbs up

    Snake Eyes saving Scarlett's life by stopping a thrown sword by his palms just inches from her face. The sword was thrown by Storm Shadow in the Silent Interlude issue.

    The Soft Master (I think) disassembling some punk's .45 and then buying it from him.

    Beachhead and Scarlett (Or was it Lady J) killing a bunch of terrorists on an airliner. The scene in particular is Beachhead shushing a little girl while hiding in front of her seat.

    Those are three off the top of my head. I don't have my comics with me (in storage) so I couldn't fact check. I'm sure someone will do it for me.

    Great memories, guys!

    The issue where Destro removes his mask is #98 if I recall correctly. It has Rock n Roll on the cover.

    98 is the one where the Original Cobra Commander comes back I think you mean 97 right?
