"Croc Master spends his leisure hours dozing in a tub of tepid bath water with only his nose breaking the surface. He dreams strange green dreams while grinding his teeth and clenching his powerful jaws. He has a hunger that never leaves him . . . "

Lurking in the savage swamps of COBRA Island reside some of the fiercest sentinels you can imagine—the COBRA crocodiles. Any potential invading force must have a plan for dealing with these creatures, or face the consequences of having their troops become dinner for these ravenous denizens of the deep. While scaly skin, foul breath, and a nasty disposition describe your typical crocodile, they apply ten-fold for their trainer. Using mannequins dressed as G.I. JOE Team members, CROC MASTER trains the gators to attack and destroy, unafraid to wrestle unruly crocs into submission to exert his dominance. After the original CROC MASTER perished in the freighter during the COBRA civil war, a succession of new individuals have assumed the mantle. It's not easy to maintain a grip on the position, with hungry crocs on one side and power-hungry trainees on the other, both waiting for the first opportunity to turn on their master.

A casual visitor to COBRA Island might find his access to certain areas blocked by a maze-like system of shallow canals. These interconnecting waterways are abundantly stocked with ravenously hungry crocodiles that have been deliberately conditioned to be especially hostile and fast. The man responsible for these ultra-aggressive reptiles is CROC MASTER, a former alligator wrestler and burglar alarm salesman who founded Guard-Gators, Inc. in an effort to commercialize the use of alligators for home security.
