*Ron Friedman
*Ron Friedman wrote the scripts for all three miniseries, and to say that he keeps going to the same well of ideas is an understatement. In fact, the parallels between the first three miniseries are unmistakable:
+
**“[[The Cobra Strikes]]” -- [[M.A.S.S.]]
**All three start with the Joe team running a routine mission, followed by a Cobra sneak attack; Duke gets captured; there's a Cobra invention that can be used to subjugate the world; Joe and Cobra meet at three (four in the "Pyramid of Darkness" mini) separate locations with exotic names; the Joes meet a stranger along the way that helps them; one of his agents pulls a fast one on Cobra Commander in the final act; the Joes launch an all-out attack on the Cobra hideout.
+
**“[[In the Cobra's Pit]]” -- [[Weather Dominator]]
  +
**“[[The Further Adventures of G.I. Joe]]” -- [[Pyramid of Darkness]]
  +
**“[[Arise, Serpentor, Arise! (Part 1)]]” -- [[Serpentor]]
  +
**Ron Friedman wrote the scripts for all 4 miniseries and the parallels between the 4 miniseries are unmistakable. There are minor variations.
  +
***The Joe team is running a routine mission, followed by a Cobra sneak attack.
  +
***Duke is captured by Cobra in the first episode of the miniseries.
  +
***There is a Cobra invention that can be used to subjugate the world.
  +
***Joe and Cobra meet at 3 or more separate locations with exotic names to retrieve components.
  +
***The Joes meet a stranger along the way that helps them.
  +
***A Cobra agent double crosses Cobra Commander in the final episode.
  +
***The Joes launch an all-out attack on the Cobra hideout.
  +
**Cobra Commander was arrested at the end of the miniseries, yet is now ruling Cobra at the beginning of the episode with no explanation. Destro betrayed Cobra Commander and escaped at the end of the miniseries, yet here he and Cobra Commander are working together like nothing happened.
