The Baroness is a cold-hearted killer of a woman that serves as Cobra’s intelligence officer and lieutenant to Cobra Commander. The quintessential femme fatal, this ruthless black-haired beauty has for long been a thorn in the side of G.I. Joe.
Although the character wasn’t in the original G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero release back in 1982, the Baroness is however in fact the first character to make the crossover from the comic books, into the animated series and then finally into the toy line, making her debut as an action figure in the 1984 series.
2009’s blockbuster G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra brought the Baroness to life, with a black leather-clad Sienaa Miller tasked with dishing out the pain. However, this version of the Baroness is a far step from the comic book version with a twisted past that actually paints her as originally being one of the good guys – and the girl of Duke of all people!
