Honestly, the text on that image sums up my feelings exactly. Sure, over the span of the comics we met up with General Joe Colton who was the original “G.I. Joe” but the franchise was always about more than one individual. It was about a dedicated team of individuals who come together to face insurmountable odds in order to protect the freedom and liberty of others. Whether in the comics or the animated series (or even the big screen), the Joes were always the ones standing between the average person and harm– and they did it without hesitation. They are and always have been heroes and it looks like G.I. Joe Retaliation has the same firm grasp on that concept as the fans do. The clips released thus far show the G.I. Joe team standing up against impossible odds because it is what they do. After all, as Roadblock says in the trailer: “World’s not saving itself.”
