Scottish arms dealer Destro leads the Baroness and Cobra Commander to a crash site housing alien technology. From the wreckage, they repair and reprogram both the Autobots and Decepticons, enslaving them to exact world dominion over the entire planet. In response the United States forms an elite team called G.I. Joe
There is more than meets the eye. Unaware of the previous attrition between the Autobots and Decepticons, Cobra Commander treads on icy ground by putting the two factions too close for comfort, which goes to show that knowing is half the battle.
This comic crossover series was released in 2003 by Image and surely would cater to geek fantasy if this made the next movie. Wishful thinking on my part.
