1 Drawing for each day. I am going to start by doing one for each letter of the alphabet… Then an additional five of my personal favorite joes…

Day nine is Destro’s Iron Grenadier

 

File Name: Various
Grade: O-1 (Lieutenant)
Birthplace: Various
Primary Specialty: Infantry Officer
Secondary Specialty: Sales & Acquisitions
Motto: “Victory! Honor! Profits!”

These IRON GRENADIER officers are handpicked to be DESTRO’s personal bodyguards. They are always no further than a caber toss away from their leader at all times. In battle, their higher military acumen and desire to control others is used to command squads of IRON GRENADIER troopers. They coordinate destruction to simulate any type of potential attack DESTRO wants his customers to fear – and then make them pay through the nose to defend against it.

IRON GRENADIER officers spearhead incursions into new territory. They act as agents provocateurs, saboteurs, or outright terrorists. Their goal is to impel an unsuspecting country towards chaos and turmoil, thereby creating new markets for M.A.R.S. (Military Armaments Research Systems) weaponry where none existed before. They maintain this tenacious behavior because their pay is a percentage of gross sales.

31 Days of GI JOE – Destro

destr

I am going to be doing 31 Days of GI JOE this month.

1 Drawing for each day. I am going to start by doing one for each letter of the alphabet… Then an additional five of my personal favorite joes…

Day four is Destro

destroFile Name: Unknown
Birthplace: Unknown
Primary Specialty: Weapons Manufacturer
Secondary Specialty: Terrorist

Destro is the faceless power behind MARS (Military Armaments Research System), largest manufacturer of state-of-the-art weaponry. To Destro, war is man’s most natural state: the fittest survive and the greatest technological advances are made. He maintains a luxurious lifestyle around the world. Destro provides high-tech arms to any side able to meet his price and will incite war where it does not exist. He dons his silver battle mask (a family tradition) and enters battle himself, either with COBRA Command (Destro is their major weapons supplier) or against them if it’s better for business.

Destro respects the G.I. Joe team for their combat skills and expertise, but abhors them for wasting such skills to maintain peace. He’s totally dedicated to seeing them undermined, subverted, or destroyed! Destro respects the G.I.
