Once again, it’s a great reason to look forward to the film.  In the Sunbow animated series, Flint was one of the cornerstone characters.  Frequently , he was seen leading a team of Joes into all manner of dangerous situation and yet he always managed to bring his team back intact.  (Granted, it was a kids cartoon and so there were no character deaths but let’s just run with this, okay?)  The inclusion of Flint in the cinematic G.I. Joe universe is a welcome sight and another sign that director Jon M. Chu is staying more faithful to the mythos than Rise of Cobra did.
