Comic Legends: The Surprising Reason Storm Shadow Joined G.I. Joe
As the creator of G. But Snake Eyes was the difference between a good brand and a truly great one. Why was Snake Eyes so popular? Well there are a number of reasons which I will go into but Hamma created him as a homage to Chuck Norris who himself was a military veteran with martial arts skills. When Norris was in the Air Force he himself was a shy reclusive airman who got involved in Tang Soo Doo as a way of getting involved. The character of Snake Eyes was exactly like that persona when he was published in Snake-Eyes with his famous symbol.
Snake-Eyes doing what he does best.
Aswell as Norris, in the origin of Snake Eyes trained in Asia to learn the arts of fighting. The reason for his training was to find inner peace with himself as a way of coping with his disfigurement. In his early days in the army Snake Eyes was on a rescue mission.
Snake Eyes face is badly burnt. As they were heading toward their destination, their helicopter collides with another in mid-flight.
All the Joes bail out, but Scarlett is trapped within. Snake Eyes stays behind to save his comrade, but a window explodes in his face, severely scarring him and damaging his vocal cords. However, another factoid was that he wasn't even called Snake Eyes prior to the accident. Marvel comics published G. Joe in the 80s and one story involved our protagonists in the fields of Vietnam. End of the line. He is a patriot towards freedom and of course a ninja!
So what's not to like? Snake Eyes offers the reader a sense of envy because deep down a number of people would love to be a ninja who is respected by all. His origin alone is a masterful one with him being the first white man to train at Nha Trang. And not only was he the first white trainer in Trang, he excelled as a master of the arts. They cannot feel pain or fear, and can shake off effects of brainwashing. He is quicker, stronger, more durable and has as above states But along with those abilities, Snake Eyes has the unanswered ability of communicating with animals.
We saw this when the Joes were on a mission in Alaska to foil the Cobra assertion of the snowcaps - which would lead to extreme flooding. The bear attacked but Snake Eyes stood firm A few minutes later Snake Eyes and the bear would seemingly communicate telepathically as a once angry bear became a calm one and walk away with Duke saying to Scarlet "How did he do that?
Another prime example is his relationship with Timber the wolf. Snake Eyes and Timber. Although Timber is no pet, he is wild but has the connection to Snake Eyes that should not happen. Timber would follow Snake Eyes anywhere forever loyal but obviously old age does occur and when Snake Eyes and Scarlet were in the their homely cabin, Timber passed. However, he fathered a litter of wolf pups who still live near the cabin to this day.
But of all the relationships that Snake Eyes has whether it's with the animals, Joe or Scarlet. There is one that is part and parcel of the imprint of Snake Eyes and that's his relationship with Storm Shadow. Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow are intertwined with each as both trained together before and after Trang. Screenrants Duran Riveria tells of the history perfectly: One night, their master was assassinated by the Cobra agent Zartan.
Storm-Shadow was implicated in the murder, but Storm-Shadow thought it was Snake-Eyes that committed the heinous act. Both are enemies and friends throughout their history. Storm Shadow himself is now an ally of Snake Eyes which gives our hero more scope. But the relationship is simaler with Wolverine and Sabretooth. Both are closely connected, have been enemies but in the end they are friends. But it's their history that is appealing to me.
Storm Shadow himself was talented but his Asian heritage got in the way of his own rise. For years, Shadow was jealous of Snake Eyes as he was surpassing Shadow in training and combat.
And in Asian culture to lose to a person in the west is dishonorable. However, that storyline was essential to the Snake Eyes lore as it's equally important to focus on his own culture and ethnicity.
