You know, I remember more of these than I ever expected I would at this age. Cobra Commander and Dr. Mindbender stuck with me even when I was a wee lad. I'd always envisioned their earlier lifetimes in my play. COBRA is such an eglatarian group. You don't need a strong military background, you can come from any job and excell in their ranks.

Someone needs to make a flashback for Cobra Commander. I mean, I've got a pretty good story in my head for his used car salesman life but that doesn't mean I wouldn't love to read it in a comic.

You know, I want to put a new list up so bad, but I just can't bump this one... Really... And I won't.

It's like when Papa told me to take Yeller down, I just couldn't shoot 'im, I loved 'im too damn much. But he had to go, he'd shown his teeth to Momma...
