The KKK excuse has got to be the lamest thing I've heard in a long time. He's a fucking genocidal madman, the KKK thing...yeah, that's the least of the dude's problems, but that's the point: He's fucking insane! Come on, why couldn't they use the silver metal mask or the armor from the comics? What's up with the escape from a toxic-waste dump Cobra commander.

Bet they didn't keep the "Used car-dealers fucked by the Feds" origin either.
That cuts it, if the guy doesn't understand why the KKK suggestion would actually be a good thing when you're creating a villain, I have no interest in seeing the villain he ended up filming.

I'm not a huge GI Joe fan (I watched the show in the '80s and barely remember anything other than Snake Eyes), so I don't care if they change the designs a bit. But that lame excuse is a real buzz kill for me.

I'm only going to see this if the reviews are really, really good.
