Even though they're a ruthless terrorist organization determined to rule the world, the villains of Cobra sometimes find it within them to share their dreams of global conquest with other like-minded individuals. In IDW Publishing's recently announced "Street Fight X G.I. Joe" miniseries, Destro and the forces of Cobra will get cozy with the villains from the "Street Fighter" franchise.
As revealed by ComicBook.com, Cobra will join up with Bison and Shadaloo, forming an "unholy alliance" that will only be stopped by the combined skill and strategies of G.I. Joe and the World Warriors.
The crossover series, which will pit Street Fighter against G.I. Joe in a secret tournament, comes from writer Aubrey Sitterson and artist Emilio Laiso and will feature a heavy-hitting roster of iconic characters (Ryu, Snake Eyes, Guile, Scarlett, Chun-Li and Duke, to name a few). IDW Publishing's miniseries event kicks off in February 2016.
