In war fathers bury their sons...



I wanted to post both of Billy's deaths but comixology does not have the final part of DDP's World War III storyline. In it Billy is captured by Cobra, and the Commander gives him the, "join or die," option. Billy tries to assassinate his father, but instead takes out a body double, and as Billy dies from a toxin, Cobra Commander gloats how he has won over his own humanity: for he loved Billy once, and now he feels nothing.

Posted below is one page from G.I. Joe America's Elite #34 which shows the ceremony with which that Cobra Commander treats his son's body, and then how the Hama-verse version reacts to news of his son's passing in GI Joe A Real American Hero #172, and #174.

"The fun is in taking that iteration of those characters out of that timeframe having them interact in a darker and more modern story structure." - Larry Hama

--I'm still going to tag this with char: Megatron, though Jetfire would have made more sense in context. Also this issue has a cover date of June '87, the last issue of G.I. Joe and the Transformers was dated April '87... I think this was Larry's subtle way of saying the Transformers only existed as toys in the G.I. Joe world even though that would later prove false .
