GI Joe Retaliaion and Snake Eyes
GI Joe: Retaliation is an action movie being released in 2012 as a sequel to G.I. Joe: the Rise of the Cobra. In the movie the GI Joe Team and their most popular member, Snake Eyes, will conflict with Zartan, Storm Shadow, and Firefly who currently serve under the newly released Cobra Commander. Zartan (who is last seen in disguise as the President of the United States) frames all G.I. Joe operatives as traitors and wipes most of them out in a sneak attack. Zartan and the Commander now have all the world leaders under Cobra's control, with warheads headed towards innocent populaces. Badly beaten, outnumbered, and outgunned the Joes make a desperate plan to expose the truth and stop Cobra from taking over the world.
Snake Eyes Bio
Snake Eyes is a fictional character from the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero toy line, comic books and cartoon series. He is one of the original and most popular members of the G.I. Joe Team, and is most known for his rivalry with Storm Shadow.
Snake Eyes is the code name of a member of the G.I. Joe Team. Much of his history and information, including his real name, place of birth and serial number, have remained classified throughout all depictions of his origin. All that is known for certain about him is his rank: originally U.S. Army Sergeant and eventually reaching Master Sergeant, he has undergone Drill Sergeant training, and is a former U.S. Army Special Forces Delta operator. Very little about his past has been revealed. He was originally billed in 1982 as a commando, but in the pages of Marvel Comics, it became clear that he was also a full-fledged ninja master.
Snake Eyes is quiet in his movements and is a swift and deadly master of multiple martial arts. He is an expert in the use of a Japanese sword and spike-knuckled trench knives, but is equally qualified with and willing to use firearms and explosives. He is also the team's resident hand to hand combat instructor. Making him even more dangerous is that he rarely relies on one set of weapons to the exclusion of others. Snake Eyes did give up much of his ninja training in later issues of the G.I. Joe: America's Elite comic series.
He usually wears what could perhaps best be described as a black "military ninja" bodysuit, along with a balaclava and visor to cover his face, which was disfigured in a helicopter explosion. Since then, Snake Eyes has had extensive plastic surgery to repair the damage to his face; he still has a few scars left, but his vocal cords cannot be repaired. When shown out of his uniform, Snake Eyes is a six feet two inch tall Caucasian with an athletic build, blonde hair, and blue eyes. He has a pet wolf named Timber that has appeared several times in toys, comics, and animation.
Snake Eyes has been shown in many of the continuities of comics and animated series to at some point being romantically involved with fellow G.I. Joe member Scarlett. He has also had several apprentices, including Ophelia (dead), Kamakura, Tiger Claw, and Jinx. His personal quote is: "Move with the wind, and you will never be heard."
