So a G I Joe Pitch

New Joe Pitch

Modernized Reboot where great plots of the past never happened and the characters are moved forward and de-aged to the start of the saga.  The story starts in the wake of World War One as all other G I Joe series really do.  In the wake of World War One and the chaos of the Soviet Anarchies that struck across Europe, Nationalist Socialism (or Fascism in Italy) rises with the lower classes demanding Socialist Revolutionary Governments along Nationalist (In Europe at that time it also means Ethic) lines.  This become the spring boards for Authoritarian governments taking over European governments.  This would lead to World War Two and the mass deployment of an entire spectrum of Special Mission Forces in the conflict and following the war the retention of core cadres of special mission capabilities by the victorious powers.  In the reboot, another set of threads is brought to the forefront, the fall out of the collapse of the Ottoman Empire and the European Mandates.  It is this that sets the playing board for the modern Middle East conflicts that are on our headlines today. 

Don’t Worry, this will not get preachy!  At certain points, we will have to touch on history in order for set ups to make sense.  Unless the exposition is absolutely needed for the story, a text block with a “Look up #######, for more information” will appear to encourage readers to do the further reading on their own. 

Now the G I Joe Story will begin again just before Vietnam with the story of Second Lieutenant Joseph Colton and his “Action Team” special missions gaining the nickname “G I Joes.”  Fast forward to the 2000’s and the Global War on Terror.  As the reach of global radical jihadist networks touched more and more lives, reactionary and secondary reactionary groups start to form.  The militant rightwing of the nineties was giving way to reactionary militant leftwing groups and that forced the remilitarization of the right.  Violent Militant Islamic groups triggered the creation of militant Anti-Islamic militia groups.  As these groups begin go after each other, and innocent civilians, governments are forced to start dedicating more forces to combat these groups.  Of course this had a Darwinian effect meaning that only the “Best” survived and started grow and thrive.  Some of the groups started fielding platoons of uniformed armed and equipped infantry soldiers and the companies and then battalions.  The US and allies end up putting together Special Mission Teams tasked specifically try to contain and end the “Terror Wars.”

Groups and Factions:

-G I Joe: A collection of US Special Forces, Law Enforcement and Intelligence teams tasked with dealing with Cobra, Iron, SKAR, Tahara, Red Shadows, and so on.

-SAF: A British and Commonwealth assembly of teams to deal with Terror War players such as Cobra, Tahara, Red Shadows, and so on.

-Action Force: A EU sanctioned collection of teams to deal with Terror war players.

-Athena Group: A M.A.R.S. subsidiary that provides training to government security forces around the world for a fee.

- Cobra: An Authoritarian Leftist “Nu-NAZI” group bent on uniting the world under a single rule free of the corruption of Western Decadence!

-Dreadnoks: Mercenary outlaw biker cartels, known as terror for hire by groups who want mayhem without direct trace back to them.

-Headhunters: A South American Narco-terror cartel that has overwhelmed and dominated many of cartels in South and Central America and is powerful enough to have shadow governments running rural and inner-cities

-Iron: Anti-Government Right Wing Neo-Confederate/Neo-NAZI group operating in and around North America

-Iron Grenadiers: A mercenary group suppling weapons and training to farm league terror groups in order to turn them into real threats.  They continue to supply customers after the end of startup packages.

-M.A.R.S.: The Military Arms, Research and Support group, INC.  The number 2 Military Industrial Complex mega corporation in the UK or the EU with subsidiaries in just about every country in the world.  Official headquarters in New York US, Soul SK, London UK, and Edinburgh Scotland but in reality the real headquarters is the McCullen estate in Callander Scotland.

-Nightcreepers: A Far East mercenary group of spies, thieves, and assassins that are styled as “Ninjas” even though they seem to originate from South East Asia not Japan.

-October Guard: A Neo-Soviet terror network that was formed from a “Rogue” Russian special forces team that officially is wanted as traitors by the Russian Federation government…

-Red Shadows: A European Right wing NeoNAZI group that determined to purge Europe of the “Un-European” and establish a new global order

-Sayf Allah: A Militant Islamic supremacist group intent on creating a global Caliphate under their rule, Enemies of Tahara

-S.K.A.R.: Society for Khaos and Anti-government Revolutionaries. A Pan European Rightwing Anti-EU nationalism group

-Tahara: A Militant Islamic supremacist group intent on creating a global Caliphate under their rule, enemies of Sayf Allah

 

Nature of the Narrative

While they story will cover epic battles and conflicts it will be told in small conversations.  Anyone who has served in military service knows the universal truth of “Hurry up and Wait” in the military.  Anyone who has served is also familiar with the tendency of Service Member being story tellers, an off shoot of being subject to “Hurry up and Wait.” 

As such the events of the stories will be told as personal narratives after the fact.  Tone will be as humorous as possible and maybe even a bit absurd to the point of possibly be a white lie tossed in for dramatic effect.

The terror network will not have overpowered massive vehicle inventories, but rather will be small batches staffed with many people.  Let’s be honest building tanks and fighter jets gets a lot off unwanted attention.  Where they do develop and deploy are things like technicals and remote controlled quadcopter, cars, small boats and minisubs, but not humanoid androids like the classic B.A.T.s from the cartoons.

Characters

All of the military Service Members will conform to Military Height and Weight standards.  On duty personnel in garrison will wear standard uniforms.  Off duty they will wear civilian clothing that matches situations.  On operation they will wear camo military gear for the missions.  Most of the time the field members will be allowed a free pass in regards to grooming standards, but will have to clean up when standing down for long periods.

A number of villains will end up being disgraced friends since Major Bludd was formerly a member of the Australian Special Air Service and he is not the only former Western service member who is now a Cobra agent according to the toy file cards.

caught a cold so haven't had any time to write really... but had that idea earlier and wanted to post it.
Gorel - 9/22/2018 2:33 PM
If anyone has any ideas on where they would like Satyr Silliness to go, let me know.
The Comedian - 9/19/2018 12:53 AM
The Dr. Diabolical stuff is really great. Loving all the America material, the character pairings feel really fresh.
Master_Kind - 9/18/2018 1:26 AM
Loving the Dr. Diabolical additions Special K Alpha, will add more soon. :)
JimmyKasche - 9/16/2018 2:08 PM
but you could use whomever obviously :P
JimmyKasche - 9/16/2018 2:07 PM
couldn't decide who to actually make the deputy mayor but had the idea of Mojo trying to hype that he's doing this for a good cause :P was debating between like Silver Sable or She-hulk
Gorel - 9/14/2018 10:25 AM
Hmm, wondering if anyone is interested in resurrecting an old story or two.
Master_Kind - 9/13/2018 1:12 AM
SpecialKAlpha, love the new chapter! Will add more soon! Jimmy, love that idea as well - will likely be giving a bimbo voice to PG in the near future.
JimmyKasche - 9/12/2018 6:22 PM
late on this but for the Saw thing maybe something to make Supergirl or Power Girl sound like bimbos... (not necessarily changing their iq's or anything but everything run through a bimbo filter)
Master_Kind - 9/12/2018 1:26 AM
Also had another idea re: duplicate Dicks - maybe the failsafe Reality Gem shard-powered device Nightwing finds retroactively creates a duplicate of him that is still affected by the MPC (the one at the wedding).
