and while we're on the subject I'd like to take this opportunity to say... I'm Spartacus! I'm also Brian and so is my wife!

Got seven lists!  Only a week and a day until the end!  Lets see more lists (though there are a lot of disparate choices, I'll say there's some interesting overlaps I didn't expect.  This is going to be a fun one).

At this point it should go without saying, but I am a huge procrastinator. You will definitely get a list from me, though it may be at the last second.

I need another week to think of entries I might have forgotten! And forget some entries I might have already thought of!

I will be disappointed if you left The Shredder and Cobra Commander off your list Pak.

Hell yeah! And vaguely related, I recommend this comic book every time I can. Cobra: The Last Laugh is one of the best books ever written. It's a neo-noir with this guy Chuckles going undercover in Cobra. It's one of the greatest works of all time.

If you haven't seen the OneWallCinema riff of the animated GI Joe movie, do so. Or just watch the movie itself. Cobra Commander's origin story is so stupid, they pretty much just ret-conned the whole thing.

My absolute favoritest thing about the GI Joe movie is that they were going to kill Duke, but after the backlash from the death of Optimus Prime they tacked on this line at the very end about how Duke's gonna come out of his coma (His coma from being stabbed directly through the heart, I guess).

I would argue the death of Optimus Prime was actually a good thing for kids growing up in the 80's. His death was I would dare say very cathartic. Not to mention that when invincible superheroes somehow die, we're subconsciously reminded of our own personal vulnerabilities, the brevity of life, and love for this character because when it comes to facing death, things get really emotional when you loved that or those characters so much and that tends to lend a lot of weight to the dramatic impact in the art of story-telling.

Still waiting on more lists.  8 is OK but I'm hoping we get a lot more!
