Why wait for the newsletter?

I figure that there are so many bits and pieces of information out there that may or may not be fit for an entire article, so we’ll start throwing some of them up here on the site as they come.

Today’s:

Joe Colton (the name given by Hasbro during the Marvel Comics run for the original G.I.Joe figure) was named after the son of Kirk Bozigian, Colton Joesph Bozigian.  Unfortunately, our offer to puchase Colton for display was rebuffed by Kirk.  icon wink G.I. Joe trivia tidbit.

Kirk at the con this year mentioned that his daughter was originally going to be the name of Baroness, but they wanted to keep the character more mysterious.

True. His daughter Courtenay went on to be the inspiration for the name of Covergirl.

I remember when this was revealed in the comic. It sent us into a scramble because we had used Clutch’s last name as G.I. Joe’s real name, and had grown very accustomed to it!

So to keep things ‘kosher’ (yes, that was intended), we said that ‘in order to protect his family’, Joe used the last name ‘Colton’ as his alias.
