As summer blockbuster season starts, many people are looking forward to the new G.I Joe movie. For this new generation, the classic characters have undergone a new millennium makeover. Dressed in head-to-toe, tight black leather gear, the characters have dumped their candy-colored costumes for a Mad Max-style look.
The classic G.I. Joe franchise started out as military-themed action figures but grew into a comic book and then later a cartoon show. Although the series ended years ago, it lived on in the hearts of many fans.
