|"I remember crossing the Alps on Elephant-back, outflanking the Maginot Line, and marching 'cross the Rubicon. What hopes then have mine enemies?"|
After his encounter with four Autobots rekindled his lust for domination, a washed-out terrorist tracked down the discarded body of a Sweep and used it as a recipient for data from an old Cobra project to combine the military acumen from the greatest strategic minds of Earth's past. The EDC disrupted the operation, but in the process General Clayton "Hawk" Abernathy was knocked into a Brainwave Scanner and his personality uploaded to the amalgamated consciousness. The result is a being who, normally, identifies with Cobra and their occasional allies, the Decepticons, and yet finds himself sympathetic to the cause of the Earth Defense Command, which he remembers founding and leading. This dissonance hampers his otherwise brilliant tactical mind, but even his divided processor is capable of generating ruthless, inventive plans of incredible subtlety. Carries a twin-barreled "Strike" attack gun and a laser-powered heat ray, capable of instantly heating any metal to 3200 centigrade.

Serpent O.R. Parts Information
Serpent O.R. Additional Info
Serpent O.R.'s bio references Old Snake and the season 3 Generation 1 episode Only Human, and the origin of Serpentor from the episode Arise, Serpentor, Arise, in the G.I. Joe cartoon. In that episode Cobra used Sergeant Slaughter to fill in for a missing gap in their collection of military minds - given how Old Snake was formerly Cobra Commander, this means he has a bad run of luck when it comes to getting the minds of Joes uploaded into his super-soldiers.
The bio also suggests, at least as far as the Fun Publications Transformers Timelines extended continuity is concerned, that the Earth Defense Command featured in the third season of Generation 1 is a successor organization to G.I. Joe.
