Some people say that Ninjas own the night. If that's the case, SNAKE EYES owns the whole twenty four hours. Anybody who isn't a mouth-breather has a reasonable chance of sneaking up behind a sentry in the dark. SNAKE EYES can do it at high noon on a gravel path with no cover. A qualified expert with all NATO and former Warsaw Pact small arms, he is proficient in twelve martial arts systems and a master of the same Ninja Clan (Arashikage) that produced STORM SHADOW. His one known hobby is collecting spike-handled trench knives. At one time SNAKE EYES and the COBRA Ninja STORM SHADOW were sword brothers, but circumstances forced them apart and led STORM SHADOW down the evil road to COBRA. Although others see them as bitter foes, SNAKE EYES looks at the COBRA Ninja and see only the best friend he ever had, so he dreads the day he may have to draw his sword against him in earnest.
No variations of Snake Eyes (v17) are known to exist.
Snake Eyes (v17) has an entirely new body sculpt. The mold was reused to create Snake Eyes (v19) (2004).
