    I didn't think he was underplayed at all in the first. He got a good amount a screen time.

    Awesome. Maybe he and Baroness will break out the Commander and Destro on the USS Flagg. That would make a nice sequence.

    Ok, I am pretty sure I know about stabbing wounds, hypothermia and whatnot, enough to say...I am quite sure that Storm Shadow died in the end. Just saying.

    No it wouldn't. Making her a villain again would be stupid.

    Ninja magic!

    Making her a not-villain was even stupider imo.

    Hrmn. Didn't really like him in the original; he was better then Snake Eyes, but still didn't feel like he had a place in the movie. Hopefully he'll be better in the sequel.

    Nothing can be worse then what they did with her character, and the execution of it.

    He will show up in OPERATION HISS and the Pursuit of Cobra line; both of which take place after ROC but before G.I. Joe 2. So he is alive.

    BTW OPERATION HISS is both a new cartoon this year AND a miniseries by IDW!

    yeah, I can't believe what they did to the Baroness. Then again, I just read an article that stated the actors had to beg for Snake eyes. Apparently, Paramount didn't really think he was a big deal and wanted to make the first movie without him.

    Really? He is definitely needed. He is the most recognizable character in the movie; NONE of the other characters were as recognizable!

    G.I.Joe has been a little lacking in the realism department since... oh about 1982.

    Anyone moaning about realism in the movie shouldn't have gone to see it in the first place, and might want to go find something else to watch when the sequel comes out.
    He was shot several times in the chest at nearly point-blank range in the comics. He still came back.
    Basically, yes. He used an Arashikage clan secret to put himself in a deathlike state and accelerate his healing. No reason he couldn't have done it in the movie.

    Cool, hope it also means more screen time for Snake Eyes.

    Unless she is "cured" of Cobra's influence, gain's Duke and Hawk's trust and is then revealed to have willingly been a villain all the time and the entire victim thing was all an act.

    That would be cool.

    Plus, they need to start calling her "Baroness" and not "Anna".

    Storm Shadow has been my #1 favorite G.I. Joe character back when I started liking this cartoon & toy line back in '88, and I felt that he was very badly portrayed in part 1 (he was not an equal to Snakeye at all, and he carries gun?). Hopefully the sequel will do him justice.
