After that, the story took in the ''G.I. Joe: Cobra Civil'' War a major turn as the various leaders of Cobra, which up till then focused on maintaining a low profile, tried to prove themselves worthy of the mantle of Cobra Commander by striking against G.I. Joe and against each other. These various attacks cause major damage to the Joes and cause political pressure to force them to downsize. A new character called Krake won the prize, and the story ended with the appointment with a new Cobra Commander. A new series called ''G.I. Joe: Cobra Command'' was published detailing the reign of this new Commander. Whereas the previous Commander insisted on secrecy and stealth, focused on subversion and behind-the-scenes manipulation and secret technological development, and was willing to tolerate some independence among his subordinates, the new Commander is far more militaristic, controlling and openly aggressive. He launches Cobra into the limelight first by using Cobra's massive arsenal to conquer and effectively destroy an entire nation, and then by exposing G.I. Joe to the world.

The story is still on-going.

Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Deep-cover operative Chuckles and his handler Jinx try and infiltrate Cobra. Jinx is discovered and Chuckles has to kill her(after falling in love with her) to prove his loyalty to Cobra. Eventually Xamot reveals that he knew Chuckles was a Joe all along, and basically forced him to kill her [[ForTheLulz just for the hell of it.]] Chuckles, however, eventually impresses Cobra Commander enough that CC hands him a loaded rifle and gives him permission to shoot Xamot. Chuckles mutters "Yo Joe", then swings around and kills Cobra Commander, then finishes off his mission by detonating a Cobra warhead and destroying the base, costing them hundreds of millions of dollars in materiel and personnel. While this does put Cobra into flux for a while, it's a ''bad'' sort of flux, where all the top rank are battling for control, and when one of them eventually becomes the new Cobra Commander, he's ''much'' less concerned with Cobra's public image and begins to take the fight to G.I. Joe in a big way.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Compared to the cartoon, hoo boy. All members of G.I. Joe, with the exception of General Hawk, are listed as KIA and are all officially dead. The Joes regularly use lethal force when necessary. Cobra soldiers are shown to be quite capable of killing the Joes in return. Cobra is shown to be an effective organization that regularly uses torture, psychological manipulation, death, and even weapons of mass destruction when doing so will further their goals. Characters on both sides die. All of this is justified since the Joes are highly trained black-ops soldiers, and Cobra is a terrorist organization. Issue #6 retconned Cover Girl's backstory; she is now said to have given up being a model because she would much rather do something she was good at - kill people. Not a motivation you would have ever seen in the original cartoon series of early comic books in a character who is not a member of Cobra.

There was also a mini-series called G.I. Joe Cobra, which revolves around Chuckles, the Joes' undercover agent, as he infiltrates Cobra. His story continued in G.I. Joe: Cobra II, culminating in Chuckles, through his own efforts, as well as being a pawn in the schemes of the various factions within Cobra, assassinating the Cobra Commander in a major plot-twist.

* FromNobodyToNightmare: Krake. A poor rural boy from the country of Nanzhao (apparently the stand-in for Burma/Myanmar) who rises to become a member of the High Command of Cobra, to the Commander himself.

Monk is shaping up to be this for Duke specifically; from ordinary(if trigger-happy) U.S. soldier to brutally sadistic head of Cobra's New York division, and oh yeah, he's spent years messing with bank records to make it look like Duke's on the take.
