Back in the wild days known as 1982, all my friends were TOTALLY into G.I. Joe. With a best-selling comic book, a fairly affordable toy line, and the brilliance of Larry Hama writing both, it was pretty much a guaranteed seller. To this day, I can remember line-for-line some of the wonderful moments in the back-of-the-package file cards that Hama wrote. Of course, while most of my friends were torn in whether they most dug Stalker (the cool Green Beret with the camo fatigues), Scarlett (the gorgeous bombshell who could knock you in the dirt in a second), or Snake-Eyes (Ninja, duh?), I found myself most impressed by one Anthony S. Gambello, the team’s laser-rifle trooper, Code-Name: Flash. If you’re asking, ‘Which one’s Flash again?”, don’t feel too bad. Most of my 80’s pals had the same question. (He’s the cool cat with the orange pads in the image up there.)
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) wassss onnnssssse a maaaaaan, asking:
Which background or secondary characters do you end up liking more than the leads?
