Notes: Sunbow's Cobra Officers wore the 1982 outfit, but with simpler chest straps colored white. In the first miniseries, the chevron and Cobra insignia were red, and the gloves were grey. Thereafter, the chevron was black, the insignia was white, and the gloves were black or absent. Early ads for Marvel comics gave the officers blue masks and gloves, and yellow belt and straps. The 1989 Python Officer outfit appeared very briefly in DiC's Operation Dragonfire.

Cobra Officers were first deployed in April 1979, during the Iranian operation that first brought the Cobra organization to light. Their appearance is represented by Version 7 from 1979 through 1984, whereupon they were replaced by the similar Cobra Squad Leaders. They reappeared among Cobra's ranks when the organization resurfaced in May 1991, with their Version 10 appearance, changing to Version 11 in 1993. They were the highest ranking non-specialized fighters in the "Cobra Trooper" family, and other types such as Night Watch Officers, Ninja Troopers, and the higher-skilled vehicle drivers (HISS Drivers, Stinger Drivers, WORMS, Cobra Coils, and Decimators) were generally selected from among Cobra Officers.

The COBRA Officers are "officers" in name only. The only real rank they have is over their own little squad of Cobra Troopers. They are among the meager handful from the teeming ranks of COBRA Troopers that, for some reason, whether it's previous experience, personal ambition, or dumb luck, manage to show some level of initiative, organization, or leadership skills. Ultimately, somebody has to keep the ranks together and moving with a purpose, so that even these bottom-of-the-barrel COBRA forces achieve their given objective, because nobody else wants the job.
From General Hawk's Files: "Calling these jerks 'officers' is an insult to ever commissioned officer that ever served in any reputable military organization. The ones we've captured are as dumb as bricks, but not as pleasant to have around. Unfortunately, they've got just enough skill to keep a squad of COBRA Troopers together and moderately organized . . . at least well enough to cause the kind of chaos that COBRA likes to make."
Motto: "I'll be there when COBRA conquers the world!"

The Cobra organization has legions of troopers who perform the basic, day-to-day functions of a secretive, quasi-military organization. They are expected to be loyal and obedient no matter what their function, whether it's battling the G.I. JOE team as a frontline trooper or chauffeuring COBRA COMMANDER, as is the job of this scar-faced, COBRA officer, whose facial disfigurement tells a tale of a dark and dangerous past. Like most COBRA officers, he was probably a criminal or mercenary before joining COBRA as an infantry trooper then working his way up the ranks.
"So, the mighty DESTRO thinks he's gonna fix my wagon, huh? Well, I've got something for him. . ."

COBRA officers are front-line fighters who lead COBRA attack units into battle. Many are also believed to be operating as spies at major military and industrial locations. All are martial arts experts and masters of disguise, deceit, and demolitions. They are qualified experts in all military rifles, pistols, and submachine guns currently in use by military forces around the world. Certain officers have received advanced training to lead assault squads in extreme environments; this officer is a desert region specialist deployed on a highly classified COBRA mission.
"COBRA officers are dedicated to destroying G.I. JOE and the American way of life. Beware...they are extremely dangerous enemies!"

These front-line fighters lead COBRA attack units into battle, but they are "officers" in name only. The only real rank they have is over their own little squad of COBRA troops. They are among the meager handful from the teeming ranks of COBRA troopers that, for some reason, whether it's previous experience, personal ambition, or dumb luck, manage to show some level of initiative, organization, or leadership skills. Ultimately, somebody has to keep the ranks together and moving with a purpose, so that even these low-level COBRA forces achieve their given objective.
"We are dedicated to destroying the G.I. JOE team and will be there when COBRA conquers the world!"

COBRA OFFICERS are in charge of assigned squadrons of COBRA TROOPERS. These hardened officers have risen from the ranks to reach a position of relative authority. The qualifications for promotion include documented missions of obvious success and an iron-fisted attitude that is merciless and demanding. They are the first to be punished for the failure of the team; they are also the first to accept any rewards when their team succeeds in its mission. They are proven leaders with tactical skill who wield their precious portion of power with cruel expertise.
"Some say a true leader is one who inspires rather than intimidates. I say - whichever method gets you the cooperation and results you're after, use it."
