What is the Plot of ‘Snake Eyes’?
Tts premise serves as an origin story of the character Snake Eyes.
In the G.I. Joe comics published by Marvel, Snake Eyes was a Vietnam War vet who served in the U.S. military with Storm Shadow. Upon their return stateside, Snake Eyes learns his family was killed in a car accident.
Left without a home, Storm Shadow took in Snake Eyes to Japan, where they trained together as ninjas in the Arashikage clan.
Snake Eyes excelled in his training, currying favor with Storm Shadow’s uncle Hard Master. This created a rift between Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes, who fight on opposite sides of the G.I. Joe/Cobra Command conflict.
Before joining G.I. Joe, Snake Eyes lived a secluded life in the High Sierras with his pet wolf, Timber. In an early mission for the Joes, Snake Eyes’ face was disfigured, leaving him to conceal himself behind a balaclava.
His vocal cords were also damaged, which explains why Snake Eyes never speaks. Among the G.I. Joe team, Snake Eyes develops a relationship with Scarlett.
Little else is known about Snake Eyes’ identity, including his real name. He has been shown to be a blonde, Caucasian male with blue eyes.
