It’s my favorite time of the week! Time to veg out with some saturday morning cartoons!
This week, we’re going back to 1986 to check out the birth of the Cobra Emperor in Arise, Serpentor, Arise!
After yet another defeat inflicted by G.I. Joe, the immediate subordinates of Cobra’s leader, Cobra Commander, have finally come to the end of their patience with his apparent incompetence and his inability to achieve real victories. The leader of the research and interrogations wing, Dr. Mindbender, receives a dream showing the solution. His plan is to collect the genetic material of great warriors and military leaders to create a composite clone that would be the perfect leader for Cobra. Now they set out to put this scheme into motion, and G.I. Joe has very little time to learn of this plot before Cobra becomes that much more a dire threat to the world.
Hard to believe that it’s been almost 40 years since this first aired! No, I don’t feel old at all, really (lol)!
Serpentor has always been one of my favorite characters, as there’s just so much imagination put in to his backstory. The original ARAH toy was always a go to in my collection, just as the Classified version is now.
Enjoy your Saturday, my friends!
