COBRA COMMANDER leads the evil forces of COBRA in their quest for world domination. He has no conscience or honor, and he will stop at nothing to achieve his terrible goals. He has built a large network of spies who supply him with information about governments and businesses around the globe. He uses this information to expand his empire and increase his power. The one group stopping him from complete victory is the GI JOE team. He despises their sense of justice and honor. In the mind of COBRA COMMANDER, he is sure they will fail and he will win. Why? Because to him, you don't rule with kindness and decency; instead, you force people to obey you with threats and fear. The fact that he is wrong has never occurred to him.
"I learned long ago how to get what I want. Take it by persuasion, by force, by any way you can. No one else matters. That's how you win."
No variations of Cobra Commander (v23) are known to exist.
