As I was afraid, they want to turn Sean into the new Snake-Eyes. :snakes2: can remain dead if that's what Larry wants, the character already had a great run, but Sean should either be his own character or at least be his own Snake-Eyes, not a copy with the whole burns and muteness.
Legacy characters work better when they still have noticeable differences from their predeccesors: Wally West is more extroverted than Barry Allen was, Dawn Granger is more proactive than Don Hall, Tim Drake is more of a computer geek than Dick or Jason, Cassie Sandsmark is less serious than Donna Troy, etc.

How old are some of the characters in Larry's stories?

I mean some of them must be knocking on a bit, even facing retirement age, if they're old enough to have seen service in Vietnam.
More news, as its made, from new Action Force!

Technically, the stories were supposed to pick up immediately after the original series ended in 1994. That being the case, at the most, we should be in 1996 by now at the latest. Unfortunately, there have been many references to modern day (c. 2015) events and items (like cell phones) and there was even a "2012" placed on a gravestone in one issue.
(sigh)
That being said, the Red Shadows were only on 2 pages for this comic. They were around long enough for the Black Major to blame Red Laser for the destruction of the robot in Olliestan. Red Laser makes it clear that it wasn't his fault that his leaders were unaware of a bigger, more dangerous robot being built by the Joes. At this juncture, everyone is in the dark and Cobra Commander wants to find out who the person was that sabotaged the Red Shadows' giant mech. It doesn't take him long to realize that it is "Sean Collins", the adopted son of "Fred II" (Wade Collins), a former Crimson Guard who served with Cobra back in the '80s.
