DR. MINDBENDER (v1)
MASTER OF MIND CONTROL
Series: Five (1986)
Dr. Mindbender was first released as part of the fifth series (1986). He was also available in 1987 and was discontinued in 1988.
The name "Dr. Mindbender" may have been a last minute addition. At certain early times in G.I.Joe mythos, he was referred to as "Dr. Brainwave" (in Marvel Comics G.I.Joe #44) and also as "The Interrogator" (on the filecard of Serpentor).
Dr. Mindbender came with a white handgun, a silver prod, a black power generator, a black cape (with a painted silver Cobra logo), and a black hose.
There are two types of Dr. Mindbender's cape. One has a Cobra sigil as a patch - the other is an iron-on transfer.
The thighs (or upper legs) of Dr. Mindbender were originally used to create Mutt (1984).
Other than the thighs, Dr. Mindbender's body is completely original - all new body parts.
In France, Dr. Mindbender was released as "Dr. Cortex."
