Coil Trooper











Previous character: Cobra Mortal
Next character: Skull Squad Trooper

 

Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, Coil Troopers were never animated.

Headcanon

When Destro rejoined Cobra in 1991, Overlord gathered the remnants of the Iron Grenadiers, those not trusted enough to return to Cobra, and formed the rival mercenary organization The Coil, which continued to operate after Cobra's defeat in 1994. The appearance of Coil Troopers is represented by Version 1.

COIL TROOPERS are the most vicious and ruthless of all sub-armies in the extended COBRA Empire. They range from former VIPER agents to expatriated soldiers tired of playing by the rules. Because of their mutually secret origins, they tend to be a more tightly knit and better disciplined organization than most of COBRA's fodder, and adhere to a strict join-for-life policy. Swarming over their enemies with far more violence than is required, they pursue the goals of their leader, OVERLORD, with absolute devotion. Rumors that this loyalty is chemically induced have yet to be substantiated, though they range from aggression-causing additives in their food to derivatives of SERPENTOR's blood in their drink!
The troopers of the COIL army are driven to help their leader win COBRA COMMANDER's mercenary challenge by eliminating SGT. SLAUGHTER. Some look forward to the opportunity to crush the legendary G.I. JOE Drill Instructor because of old COBRA grudges, some because of the rough treatment they received before "washing out" under his tutelage!
"No one escapes the crushing might of the COIL!"
Toy Notes: Six copies were boxed in a Convention-exclusive set with Maj. Bludd (06), Overlord (06), Cobra Mortal (06), and six copies of Skull Squad Trooper (06). Both the cartoon and the comic have featured rival organizations to Cobra called The Coil.
