Firefly is awesome but I don't consider him one because he wasn't a ninja until one day "oh lol j/k he's a ninja" yeah whatever, and those other ninjas are stupid and you're dumb for liking them.

So, the question is, who is the best GI Joe ninja?

The best one was the one with the action figure that turned clear when you put him in the freezer. Stealth action bitches.

What about Jinx?

I put her in the poll. She falls under the umbrella of "The stupid ones" :cool:

I'm allowing multiple votes because I accidentally clicked it because I'm smart, but I made it intentionally public so we're on the honor system here. Honor like, you know, ninjas have? Wait that's samurai. It's okay GI Joe never really drew a distinction.

I always wanted a TMNT/Ghost in the Shell team-up. Donatello "does machines," and "in A.D. 2029, people love machines." I think the crossover appeal should be obvious!

Also, Jinx was always the best. Yes, she's a ninja warrior, but she always took the time to paint her nails because you can't fight evil without looking beautiful. (Check the figure, nail polish is one of its few paint apps.)

The latest TMNT comics series from IDW has Donatello as a forum-lurking nerd whose username is "Duz_Machines_84".

Haw!

I was about to say there was some really creative math going on with the percentages... then realized that, yes, you're literally not counting the stupid ones. Good show, sir.

One of the options is there simply because I writing "T'Jbang" makes me laugh.

I mean, how do you say that? Tuh-juh-bang? Juh-bang? Teegeh-bang? T.J.-Bang?!?

Thank you for ruining everything ever, Parish.

Let's not overlook option C: Hiro Yamato, the greatest ninja ever released with an O-ring.

Like the thread title says - the choice is really between Storm Shadow or Snake Eyes. All of the rest are inconsequential. Snake Eyes win because Storm Shadow is always getting punked out by everyone. That's what happens when you try to be a ninja while wearing white (unless there's snow on the ground).

I mean, how do you say that? Tuh-juh-bang? Juh-bang? Teegeh-bang? T.J.-Bang?!?I'd say TJ Bang.

(To the GI Joe cartoon theme):
TJ Bang!
His name's really hard to saaayyy.
TJ Bang's his name.
TJ Bang!

Shit, I think this guy wins by default as he actually looks like a ninja and isn't in some stupid gimmicky outfit.

I just can't take Snake Eyes seriously.

Conversely, I can't take the ninja in white who's portrayed by a Korean pop star seriously

I think the thing that saves Snake Eyes for me is he doesn't talk. Muffuckas don't shut up nowadays, so I appreciate that kind of characterization, regardless of how weird it is

I maintain that the movie is underrated, i.e. it is not as terrible as the Transformers films but seemingly regarded much worse

it's also better than the animated movie

and no lips in the sequel

I never saw the G.I. Joe movie, but there is no possible way in any universe that it's worse than the Transformers films.

So...Go Joe?

Few movies are worse than the Transformers films, and I say this as someone who finds the '80s Transformers cartoon and comics unbearably dumb. They are simply completely terrible pieces of filmmaking.

So that's kind of a low bar to clear.

The G.I. Joe movie was fairly tolerable as far as dumb popcorn flicks go. It didn't make me want to die, which puts it ahead of the majority of summer action blockbusters.

Rise of Cobra, man, I dunno. I watched that for free on the netflix my old roommate paid for and I'm still not sure it was worth it.

The new GI Joe picture, on the other hand, I will line the fuck up to see Bruce Willis, the Rock, and Titus Pullo shoot shit for two hours.

All's I know is that in GI Joe: The Atlantis Factor you get Storm Shadow first, and by the time you get Snake Eyes most of the POWs have been taken.

Correct.

Yeah but you get Wet Suit before that. Also, I forget but I'm PRETTY sure you can get Snake Eyes first? But they're in roughly the same portion of the game, I remember that...I don't know, I just always played as Hawk/Duke/Wet Suit since you get them first and you can pimp out of their gun levels and whatnot.
