GI Joe: The Plague

In the excellent World War III storyline that wrapped up the Marvel/DDP GI Joe continuity, a new threat was introduced to the Joe team: the Plague.

The idea was pretty cool: frustrated by his constant losses to the Joes, Cobra Commander decided to emulate their success. After all, a team of just 13 soldiers had managed to hold off the entire Cobra organization all through the '80s, so maybe bigger wasn't always better. He picked the best troopers from the various Viper divisions and formed his own elite team. So, who made the cut?

Obviously three of the members were included in the Plague Troopers vs. Steel Brigade set, and Blackout was sold by himself, but everyone else you'll have to just buy the old toys and paint them black. That's basically how they looked in the comics, anyway.
