This chapter prosecutes a cogent and detailed analysis of 1980s GI Joe Comics villain Cobra Commander, whose organization, upon closer examination, bears “more resemblance to the neoliberal ethos of the Reagan Administration itself than to its clandestine non-state opponents. The chapter explores Marvel Comics’ framing of the Joe and Cobra teams, which appears to present a striking critique of neoliberalism as an ideology – one which enshrines itself in Americana while actually undermining the values and tenets of 20th Century American values.

Keywords:   G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, Cobra, Neoliberalism, Terrorism, Hasbro
