The 7 Most Unintentionally Hilarious G

Joe is back with a vengeance this summer, and really what could cheap replica michael kors be cooler than a group of constitutionally questionable quasi mercenaries with killer nicknames and laser rifles fighting a snake themed international terrorist organization? Nothing, that’s what.

Most of the characters had reasonably developed backstories as well, provided by the ubiquitous file cards on the back of each blister packed action figure. But for every great Joe, there was some sad bastard with a glaringly crippling deficiency that rendered them almost useless in battle. Such as.

At first glance Captain Terrence Lydon’s resume seems pretty solid. Top 10 at West Point? Check. Army War College to get in on the real action? Check. Took the code name Grid Iron and wears battle gear specifically designed to remind everyone that he was the quarterback of the West Point football team like a decade ago? Check fucking plus.

That’s right, Grid Iron’s entire gimmick is letting people know how awesome he used to be at football. This somehow translates into success on the battlefield.

Most cheap Michael Kors Telling Quote From File Card:

“If he would only stop trying so hard to be likable . . . Joe Fish Fry Football Game!” That’s right the Joes don’t even let him play football.

Football shaped grenades. Outfitted as he is, it’s only a matter of time before Grid Iron relapses into his glory days, drops back in the pocket and fires one deep to an unwitting Duke or Scarlett, giving the surviving Joes yet another reason to hate his guts.

Crowning Moment (of Ignominy):

Rather than killing him, Destro recruited Raptor with cheap michael kors handbags the intention of using the man’s unhealthy obsession to breed a bird big enough to attack the Joes. Joe team is armed with a flame throwing laser bazooka. Raptor didn’t seem to mind though, as long as he can dress up like a bird and practice animal husbandry. cheap Michael Kors See, he’s really into birds.

Most Telling Quote from File Card:

“The bottom line for Raptor is his non taxable profit margin.” That’s the bottom cheap michael kors bags line for most of us, actually.

Raptor doesn’t carry any weapons, though his costume allows him to fly so long as everyone turns around and doesn’t look when he does it. Also, he comes with a falcon. See, he’s really into birds.

Crowning Moment (of Ignominy):

Raptor witnessed the turncoat Crimson Guardsman, “Fred VII,” shoot Cobra Commander in the back and helped bury the body, but then exposed Fred VII to Dr. Mindbender and took the doctor to the gravesite. As it turns out, Cobra Commander was neither dead nor impressed, and rewarded Raptor for his loyalty by burying him in a sealed freighter beneath a volcano.

D’Alleva was reborn as Cesspool, and teamed up with Cobra discount michael kors Commander in his quest to make the earth as ugly and scarred as he is. We’re not sure we can follow his logic of joining forces with the person responsible for his disfigurement to wreak havoc on a nebulous target that had absolutely no involvement in his tragedy, but we’re pretty sure that was also Two Face’s motivation in The Dark Knight so we’ll let it slide.

And here he is in his grainy MySpace photo.

Most Telling Quote from File Card:

“Armed with an acid assisting chainsaw, he’s taken his knowledge of high level dirty dealings and corporate subterfuge straight to the organization that will make the best use of him!” Because nothing says “espionage” like the mechanized roar of an acid spitting chainblade.

Really, it’s the chainsaw. We understand the imagery of a weapon designed to both deforest an acre and scorch the earth beneath it, but seriously, Cesspool is behaving like replica michael kors the Earth was some velvet clad pimp that slashed his face with a razor after a slow night of trickin’ rather than accepting the fact that he was blown up by freaking terrorists. Maybe instead of a weapon, he should carry a mirror. Look at it, Cesspool that’s the real enemy here.

Crowning Moment (of Ignominy):

Depending on the version of the continuity ascribed to, Cesspool either dies alone of cancer in his suburban home after all his assets are seized by the government, or he gets shot in the face by Crimson Guard Commander Tomax during a breakout from a maximum security prison. Both storylines seem to agree that he dies like an asshole, though.

Darklon is actually a distant cousin of Destro, though through no fault of his own amounts to little more than the K Mart version of his famous relative. For example, while Destro is descended from a long line of mercenaries and weapons suppliers based in Scotland, Darklon hails from a long line of mercenaries and weapons suppliers based in the kingdom of Darklonia, a nebulous Eastern Bloc nation sharing its borders with Borovia and Madeupbullshitistan.

Also, Darklon wears a green fishnet shirt, which presumably is a hand me down from Destro that cheap michael kors purses stokes the fires of his resentment.

Most Telling Quote from File Card:

“His telephone solicitors have been known to drum up business for his mercenary army by offering ‘reasonable hourly rates’ and cash rebates!” So he’s Destro armed with an autodialer? Is that seriously what we’re trying to convey with this?

We’re inclined to go with the autodialer, but Darklon has another primary weapon in his vehicle, the Evader. Basically a souped up motorcycle, the Evader features a “ballistic deflection shaped canopy” with “minimal ballistic entry canopy vision ports.” Michael Kors handbag outlet Also, it doesn’t have any doors, and we’re pretty sure the machine gun attachments require him to take both hands off the wheel if he feels like cheap michael kors firing.

Doubtless the Evader serves as a constant, lumbering reminder of Darklon’s inferior mercenary lineage.

After his years of loyal service to Destro and Cobra, Darklon returned to his family’s ancestral castle to putter around and supply local insurgencies with weapons of mass destruction. Cobra Commander suggested to Destro that Darklon could be a threat, so Destro responded by casually blowing up Castle Darklonia, incinerating Darklon along with any chances of a reconciliatory family picnic.Articles Connexes:
