The Commander during the Dragon*Con parade this year. I got to happily drive the air-conditioned vehicle.
The Commander’s adventures at this year’s Dragon*Con. He was sick during this time, but was insisting on “partying away” the illness. It didn’t exactly work.
The Commander vs. The Red Shadows! He took a bullet in the gut but we’re okay now, safe in Springfrield’s local hospital. But don’t tell anyone I said that. He’s in good spirits, he always is, but this feels sincere.
The Commander getting nostalgic in his old age, still suffering from his mysterious and calculated illness. This was the beginning of the end. When he confronted the enemy head on, and so did I.
Oh, how the times change! Still going down memory lane, the first picture is from my first outing with the Commander, the second one is from my first outing with the new PR Intern! He’s a good kid, got a great work ethic. Reminds me of myself in many ways!

On a slightly lighter note, I can look back fondly on all the time the Commander and I spent together at this past Comic-Con. Including a surprise picnic I attempted to have with him. But the Commander hates surprises, and I can’t say that this outcome wasn’t a possibility. He is surprised I took the hand of the trooper at the end there though!
We had lunch later that day and didn’t speak of the picnic.
The Commander has been quarantined. He had a rough night previous to this, but seems to be in good spirits, though that could mostly be because of the painkillers. Defiant as ever, I hope we can start to make more progress soon and find out who did this to him. I’d also like him to remember me.

The Commander’s condition has taken a turn for the worse. It is clear to us now that his illness is a deliberate and calculated attack. On Cobra Island, every citizen is imbued with nanotechnology meant to bolster our immune systems. The Commander’s has been hacked and compromised. He is in stable condition now, but his short term memory is still shot.
Cobra Commander is sick. He’s trying to sleep it off today. Despite being sick he remains quite tenacious, though I’m not surprised.
Attention, nations of the world: this is Cobra Commander!
In the last twelve hours, Cobra has launched an all-out assault on your energy resources. Witness the final phase of Cobra’s plan to stop the world!
Governments of the world, the choice is yours: surrender control of your nations to Cobra, or face the nightmarish prospects of a new dark age!
Hey, I remember when the Commander and I saw that on TV.
He got such a kick out of that. See more at the Commander’s Facebook!

Just in case anybody ever wondered what Cobra Commander’s personal bathroom looked like…
Not that I would know from first hand experience, but the Commander does have a Roman shower with the Cobra symbol in tile on the wall, but nothing around the toilet.
