Once resigned to slither back into the shadows and live out the rest of his life coiled in quiet solitude, an encounter with four heroic AUTOBOTS - extraterrestrial robots from the planet CYBERTRON -changed OLD SNAKE's vision of retirement. Gone was the reverie and aimlessness, cut down by the sharp return of an ambition for absolute power. With the incarceration of crime lord Victor Drath, a power vacuum in the underbelly of society gave OLD SNAKE access to the perfect collection of condemnable and reprehensible individuals whome he could use to shape the new face of COBRA. For true muscle in the new day and age, however, he still needed something with the might to challenge any adversary, be it G.I. JOE, EARTH DEFENSE COMMAND, or AUTOBOT. Focusing on his expertise in experimental weapons technologies, OLD SNAKE set about building the next COBRA army with steel plates and circuit boards rather than flesh and blood.
"OLD SNAKE is hatred and evil wrapped up in years of bitterness and acerbity. He is not to be underestimated nor his unscrupulous tendencies underrated. Even as he advances in years, he is still one of the most dangerous men alive!" - MARISSA FAIREBORN, EDC
