What if Serpentor never happened?
In 1986 GI JOE fans got a surprise. Cobra got an emperor in Serpentor. (a clone of the ancient world’s greatest military minds.) Serpentor’s creation would lead to the revelation that Cobra was a front for an ancient society of snake people. But, what if things were different
Before the Serpentor mandate, GI JOE Story-Editor Buzz Dixon was working on a status quo shattering episode called “The Most Dangerous Man in the World.” The episode would reveal the origin of Cobra and the man whose philosophy drove them. For obvious reasons, Buzz’s episode was passed aside and vanished into the realm of “What-if.” Until now!
After 30 years of sitting on the shelf, Buzz Dixon has turned “The Most Dangerous Man in the World” into a novel to be released this Fall. I talked to Buzz about what we can expect to see in his novelization.
