‘G.I. Joe’ Villain Cobra Commander Takes Over American City With Mayor’s Blessing

Springfield, Ill. Mayor J. Michael Houston gave the nefarious villain the key to the city ahead of a ”G.I. Joe“ convention

Where’s a Real American Hero when you need one? Cobra Commander just took over an entire American city.

In a shocking turn of events, Springfield, Ill. mayor J. Michael Houston has given a key to the city to the dastardly “G.I. Joe” villain.

No, the mayor was not under the influence of some sort of mind control device. It was a publicity stunt for a “G.I. Joe” convention the city is hosting between April 9-12.

Cobra Commander, dressed in his trademark blue uniform, said in a statement, “Springfielders near and far, I accept your Mayor’s generous gift. And let it be known that I too bring a gift for every man, woman and child of this city that is so near and dear to my heart; an invitation to join with me. Join Cobra!”

Cobra Commander has been the primary antagonist of the G.I Joe team for decades, going all the way back to 1982.
