    Hardcore Joe fans should be happy with the Adventure Team and Sgt. Savage and the Screaming Eagles appearing.

    That's a different Bulletman (James "Jim" Barr).

    Seems like a pretty awesome issue for Joe fans. I can\'t wait.

    Joe fans are either gonna love this or *hate* it.  The retconning of Stalker to have been the previously-unnamed black Adventure Team member is brilliant, as is drawing a line between Joe Colton and Sgt. Savage.

    His last name is Savage, his rank is Sargent, so his code name is Sargent Savage.
    Not much of a code name, is it?

    Bulletman is WWII vintage.

    Only Stalker already has appeared as a Joe member in previous comics. Though this could be viewed as another Stalker.

    This doesn't contradict that. The timeline in issue #1 dates the Adventure Team to the '80s (despite it being a '70s toyline), and Stalker is explicitly very young here. So he'd be in his forties and fifties during the Joe stories, which isn't implausible.

    Having just looked his name(I haven't really familiarized myself with some of the Joes names), your right.

    Though I feel a big time retcon might be needed here, given how Stalker was a part of the initial Joe roster in Origins.

    Well, I mean, it's retroactively weird that nobody ever mentions him being in the Adventure Team, but an AT veteran being recruited for G.I. Joe does make sense in-universe. Asssuming the other AT guys were probably in their 30s, he'd be the only one who wasn't already in his fifties when the Joes were being put together in 2006.

    Yeah, Stalker was a member of the RAH Joes, the guys who fought Cobra. Here, he's being retroactively identified as a previously-unnamed member of the 1970s "Adventure Team" line.

    (TLDR there was a black Joe figure from the 70s who never got a name beyond "Adventurer" and this comic says "No, that was actually Stalker!")

    By, previous comics, I was referring to the previous IDW comics.
