Or he'll do an insane stunt like this.

From G.I. Joe #98. After a long absence away from Cobra and presumed dead (murdered and replaced by Crimson Guardsman Fred VIII), Cobra Commander returns with a vegeance. Mindbender and Raptor find out when they're ambushed when the later shows the former where Cobra Commander's body was buried.

After revealing what he's been doing this entire time (making an insane ammount of money via arms deals secretly, keeping a low profile, and planting all his most loyal troops by his side and in Cobra for a coup) he decides it's finally time to return to Cobra and be back on top as defacto leader. But first there's some unfinished business to attend too. Namely Fred VIII, Zartan, Billy, Croc Master, Firefly, and some others bickering (an Iron Grenadier General and two others who I have no idea) over if the current Cobra Commander amongst them is an imposter. Suddenly:

Amusingly during this next page which I had to cut Billy figures out Zartan killed the Blind Master. Also this act attracts everyone on Cobra Island watching the once landlocked freighter go into the volcano.

Of this act only Zartan, Billy, and Firefly survive. The first two dig their way out and barely just live to tell the tale as mostly everyone on board the ship perished due to food poisoning. Firefly was presumed dead until turning up very much alive much later on.

The bastard escaped by finding a stash of B.A.T.s (Battle Android Troopers) in the Freighter and activated them. They dug a escape route for him while he laid back relaxing not telling a soul of his discovery. He then uses the corpse of Serpentor as his stand-in so nobody would be the wiser.

Dr. Mindbender died and only returns due to a clone Cobra Commander created via the man's research and realized that even though he was a traitor, he needed Mindbender's genius for further Cobra projects.

I just thought about this. How many quasi-ninjas and Martial Artists do G.I. Joe and Cobra have?

Cobra: Storm Shadow, Firefly, Zartan

G.I. Joe: Snake Eyes, Jinx, Quick Kick, Scarlet, Billy and the Green Power Ranger

That's all I can think of. Although I'm not sure if Firefly's Ninjitsu is from Hama or JB added it in in the second series put out by Image.

There are more (http://www.guru-planet.com/gijninfor.html) in fact a complete sub line of them. They were all over the place, a whole family bucket of ninja's as it were.

Slice, Dice (but alas, no Julienne), Bushido, Dojo, and the generic Night Creeper

Oh man, I purposely blocked out the existence of Ninja Force. NOW IT'S BACK IN MY HEAD.

Sorry about that, I have a friend in the US who was fanatical GI Joe fan, he actually sent me some of the world's only dayglo ninjitsu.

Yeah, I'd love that. I only have the first 50 issues still and I stopped around issue 100 after the Cobra Civil War until the new series came back.

Have to say, this really was some magnificent bastard-isity from Cobra Comander here!

Also, I'm surprised no one has made a sexual orientation joke about Cobra Commander "going straight"... I mean, this is S/D right?

Oddly, most of the time I never got any sort of sexuality vibe off of Cobra Comander, even AFTER Billy was a featured character. Did we ever meet his wife?

Maybe he made him in a test tube?

I can almost imagine him during that meeting with some champagne. Say what we will, he does have a certain panache when it comes to getting rid of enemies.
