I can't stand what they have done with the look of Cobra Commander. His action figure looked so cool and evil.
I liked the hood. Apparently they didn't go with it because it was too reminiscent of the Ku Klux Klan's attire.
Erm, GIJoe fans will know that Cobra Commander also wore an awesome silver shield/helmet thing over his face. The KKK doesn't use those.

I just think Hollywood has an avertion to completely masked cinema characters. With Darth Vader an exception, I find these days masked characters spend little screen time with their face covered. Just look at Spider Man. He can't keep his friggin' mask on for more than a few minutes.
