Springfield, IL Willingly Gave Cobra Commander The Key To The City


We’ve seen some bad political decisions in the past, but few can compare to this.

Springfield, Illinois mayor J. Michael Houston just handed over the key to his fair city to Cobra Commander. Residents can all rest well with that little bit of knowledge.

It was done to promote the upcoming JoeCon being held April 9-12—or that’s the story at any rate.

As many of you probably know, Springfield was the location of a secret Cobra base in the cartoon and has been a part of G.I. Joe lore ever since. At one point in the series the whole town was filled with agents in disguise – wait a minute. Now it all makes sense. The mayor is in on whatever Cobra is plotting!
