Let’s Talk About Destro For a Minute

Guys, this is Destro:



Destro, these are the guys.

For those of you who are only familiar with him in his role as COBRA’s favorite arms dealer, it might surprise you to learn that there’s more to him than just being the best-dressed Scotsman in comics:



Destro is a lover…



and a fighter.



He’s known for thinking deep thoughts…



…and offering sage wisdom to his associates.



He’s kind to animals…



… on occasion.



Sometimes, he looks like Telly Savalas.



Sometimes, he hires the world’s most vicious mercenary to go out into the woods and give him a relaxing deep-tissue massage.

And sometimes–not always, but sometimes….



…He shoots guys with his wrist-rockets while teaming up with a criminally insane ex-dentist to steal a Goddamn mummy for cloning purposes.


Truly it can be said: Destro contains multitudes.
