Snow Serpent Officer











Previous character: Cobra Diver
Next character: Cobra Paratrooper

 

Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, Snow Serpent Officers were never animated.

Headcanon

now Serpents were introduced to the Cobra forces in late 1982. Snow Serpents ranked in the top tier of Vipers, alongside Morays and Ice Vipers and a step above the Eels from which they were selected. Teams of Snow Serpents were led by Officers whose appearance is represented by Version 1 until late 1986, when Officers were given the same uniform as other Snow Serpents.

Candidates for the SNOW SERPENT unit are selected from the ranks of the elite EELS (COBRA frogmen) cadres. They are screened for optimum strength, endurance, and motivation then subjected to a grueling and dangerous training program with over a fifty percent dropout rate. In order to graduate, traines must complete a HALO (High Altitude Low Opening) jump in a blizzard, ski cross-country fifty miles carrying a hundred-pound pack, hit over 95% of pop-up targets on the combat range, and swim a hundred meters in freezing water while carrying fifty pounds of ammunition. To become an officer in this unit, a SNOW SERPENT TROOPER must also survive three weeks in a remote polar region with nothing but an ice pick and snow goggles.
"Extreme cold is an adversary that only the strongest and most disciplined troopers can survive. The only thing colder than an Arctic night is the blood in my veins. Cold as ice: no mercy."
Toy Notes: Sold in an Internet-exclusive boxed set with Scrap-Iron (08/II), Tele-Viper (08/II), two versions of Cobra Viper (08/II, 08/III), and two copies of Snow Serpent Trooper (08/II).
