As one the the 1980s most popular properties, G.I. Joe often
way beyond its own series to appear in a handful of other places and to
be parodied in many others. Here are just a few of examples of this. If
anyone knows of any other examples, please contact
me. The Joes' crossovers with the Transformers are covered on their
own separate page, here.
The Amazing Spider-Man
#268 - September, 1985
Though G.I. Joe was usually considered separate from the
rest of the
Marvel Comics universe, the Joes did manage to sneak into it during
Wars II", a multiple-series crossover including nearly all of Marvel's
superheroes. This issue of The Amazing Spider-Man includes a Army unit
led by a sergeant who looks remarkably like Duke, though he and the
are never referred to by name. Click the below for scans of two pages

Boris the Bear #9
- April, 1987
Dark Horse Comics' Boris the Bear often parodied
books and one of them was G.I. Joe. The ninth issue of the series had a
cover based on the cover from G.I. Joe #53,
complete with Boris dressed as Snake-Eyes and many more Joe look-alikes
around the border.

Deadpool #42 - May,
This comic issue parodied G.I.
JOE #21 -- "Silent Interlude" -- in both cover, story and even
title ("Silent, But Deadly Interlude"). On the cover, Deadpool (named
Real American Zero") recreates Snake-Eyes' pose, and inside, the story
is for the most part, silent.
