Yo Joe!
~ the G.I. Joe Team

G.I. Joe Team is the code name of an elite covert special mission unit operating under the control of the United States Military in the fictional G.I. Joe universe. And their purpose, to protect the nation and the world from the evil fictional terrorist organization called, COBRA led by the sinister, faceless Cobra Commander.

Background

The G.I. Joe team consists of US Army personnel, representatives from the United States Marine Corps, the United States Air Force the United States Navy, and the United States Coast Guard. A few are from other forces such as the British Army and the Australian Army. Members are selected from the best recruits who bring with them their particular skills.

History

A Real American Hero continuity

Marvel Comics continuity

G.I. Joe is the catchy moniker of the group that is officially code named as Special Counter-terrorist Group Delta. The team is covert in nature and many of their missions are highly classified. The creation of the group was spearheaded by General Flagg who felt that the current assessment of threats required a team that is capable of working around the limitations of the time. While many missions are deemed sensitive and classified top secret, they have on many occasions also taken on high-profile missions such as the daring rescue of Dr. Adele Burkhart from Cobra's clutches. However, the kidnapping was a set up by Cobra to bring the Joes to a trap. The plan may have failed but this does indicate that Cobra has known about the team's existence for some time already.

Cobra may have been the terrorist organization that has been of paramount attention to the team but the Joes have also taken on special assignments where their elite training and skills are what would enable them to get through. Missions such as investigating an apparent attack in the Arctic, sneaking a downed plane from the heart of Afghanistan, and protecting a diplomat.

Devil's Due Comics continuity

G.I. Joe Reloaded

G.I. Joe was an initiative spearheaded by Hawk and an unidentified member of the intelligence committee. When a series of bold attacks by a mysterious paramilitary organization put the United States in the grip of terror, a team was formed as a rapid response. The group would be able to work around the general limitations that conventional military strike forces are subject to. As they are facing perhaps the most dangerous enemy the world has ever seen, the members are required to give up their identity and all ties to their families and friends with no promise that they would ever have these back. Normally, most men would be hesitant to give up that which they treasure most but the circumstances seemed so opportune that these selected men and women have no second thoughts.

Most of the members have some vendetta against the evil organization, Cobra. Scarlett's uncle died from the Omega Black virus while she and her brothers almost succumbed to it. Rock 'n Roll's girlfriend was a victim of the Golden Gate bombing. Stalker's men were visually disabled permanently during a raid in the Philippines.
