IDW, the comic company that currently publishes G.I. Joe, sent a mystery image to the fine folks at Newsarama without any accompanying text or description.

The mystery man has a noticeable COBRA insignia on his lapel, and his chrome-domed head is reminiscent of Cobra Commander's most recognizable look -- Could this be a Cobra Commander re-design for an upcoming unannounced IDW project? He's striking an awfully casual pose for the evil leader of a high-tech terrorist organization.

There are elements of the design that I like a lot, but it needs just a touch more military fascism and a little less GQ. Still, this is a much cooler look than the one Joseph Gordon-Levitt sported in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.

What do you think?
