Snake Eyes & Cobra Commander: military art

What do legendary folk tale characters and mythology avatars reveal about humanity's cultural richness?

The fabled invincible English knight Lancelot is considered to be a timeless folk symbol of populist might. The fabled ominous horror film anti-hero named Leatherface is considered to be a timeless folk symbol of anti-social terror.

If such avatars represent human imagination, what can we say about the ritual place that the two fictional military avatars, Snake Eyes and Cobra Commander hold in the public courts of art?

Snake Eyes and Cobra Commander are two fictional folk legend characters in the patriot games comic book stories about "G.I. Joe," a block of daring paramilitary crusaders who battle for martial dominion over social organization. The G.I. Joes are steadily challenged shockingly by the ominous terrorist network Cobra. Snake Eyes is a bold soldier in the G.I. Joe team, while Cobra Commander is the selfish leader of Cobra.

Snake Eyes is wily and dutiful, cunning and valiant, while Cobra Commander is insidious and clever, sinister and tyrannical.

Snake Eyes and Cobra Commander symbolically serve really as war games character foils in the "G.I. Joe" paramilitary comic book universe and their obvious pairing in literature reflects artistically the psychological appeal of espionage-themed Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Army of Darkness" (1992).

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
