"I’ll say it. It’s the greatest crossover of all time. This is the new standard by which all crossovers will be judged. What a rare privilege in comics to begin something and to end it exactly as you envisioned. To create a universe and then torch it in the most explosive way imaginable. In the end, the creative challenge is the only thing that matters. When you push the limits, the world gets bigger. We wanted to see just how much juice you can squeeze out of these concepts and out of the comics page itself. How much story can fit into a comic book before the staples pop out? I look forward to seeing how the next generation of cartoonists builds on these innovations, the way we built on the work of those who came before us. I look forward to seeing the inevitable movie adaptation of this comic." -- Tom Scioli

"I wonder if there is an example of a really good mask reveal in fiction. Snake Eyes, post-surgery Baroness, Cobra Commander, Destro in the old comic were all let-downs. Darth Vader under the mask was okay, I guess, but still a let-down. Boba Fett was lame. I thought Kylo Ren was a good way of approaching the problem and just saying, 'underneath all these masks is a face.' It can be argued that the best option is to just never show what's under the mask, like V for Vendetta. I don't agree.

"So here is the gauntlet thrown. I think this issue has the top three under-the-mask reveals of all time."

The What If? it posed was the victory of Cobra.

That came with the defeat of G.I. Joe, with precise usage of weather dominating technology.

The answer that followed was how Cobra Commander felt.

First, happy; later, bored. )

"I always saw us creating a new universe with this book, that goes from the distant past to the far future. It's a whole universe with eons of unwritten history. I want to explore and create and plant flags in the dark unexplored corners of this universe. I live for that." -- Tom Scioli
