Another day another reason why G.I. Joe: Retaliation will be great. 36 more to go!

Continuing his roll over on Twitter, Twitziller has come up with Reason #37 why G.I. Joe: Retaliation will rock as we march on towards…well… March.  The film hits March 29th, a mere 37 days away.

#37:

One of the most unheralded G.I. Joe characters in the 30 year history of the brand, Flint has always been one of my “go to” guys when it came to my G.I. Joe roster.  Sure, he got some great face time in the Sunbow animated series, but I never felt like his character was captured perfectly.  To me, the indelible vision I have of Flint is the sequence from G.I. Joe #53, where a squad of Cobra Eels is sneaking in to sabotage the PIT, and as Flint tells Lady Jaye to run for it, he dives head first into the entire squad, taking them on hand-to-hand.

Flint’s battle prowess is only matched by his intelligence, being a Rhodes Scholar, and I’m excited that he appears to be a major player in G.I. Joe: Retaliation.  I’ve enjoyed DJ Cotrona in other things I’ve seen him in, and I’m looking forward to his take on Dash Fairborne.

  1. Let’s hope Flint dons the beret at some point in this movie. Unique uniforms are what make the GI Joe roster interesting.

  2. Flint is a great character from the Joe universe and I think he hasn’t gotten the focus that he is due. He has one of the coolest uniforms, coolest bios of any character and he is a helicopter pilot to boot.

  3. Always been a stand out character and figure toy to me.

    I’ll say that this “reason” is something that has me interested in Retaliation being cool, as well.
