G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra - Snake Eyes

G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra is the next installment of my childhood to get the feature film treatment with the film's release August 7. Because the 80s were such a long time ago and you might not remember who was in your staged Joe/Cobra fights in your backyard, Omnicomic is profiling each character in the upcoming film. So sit back, read on and get reacquainted with some old friends. Real Name: Unknown First Appearance: original TV show in 1984 Actor: Ray Park Specialty: Master of Martial Arts, Hand-to-Hand Combat, expert in the use of ninjato and trench knives. Expert with the use of firearms and explosives; additionally he is the G.I. Joes Hand-to-Hand instructor. Background: Much of Snake Eyes' background is unknown and he's the most mysterious G.I Joe there is. He's silent and deadly and with swift quick action he gets the drop on any opponent. In every incarnation of Snake Eyes, he has a black ninja suit with black mask and goggles, meaning you're never able to see the man under the mask. Snake-Eyes went to study the ninja arts with Storm Shadow's family, the Arashikage Clan. Not much else about his background has been detailed or discussed, making Snake Eyes an interesting character to check out. Check out the other profiles for the characters in the movie.
