A Scottish weapons dealer/manufacturer descended from a long line of magnates, JAMES “DESTRO” MCCULLEN began M.A.R.S. Industries as a competitor to Cobra, until M.A.R.S. was acquired by COBRA COMMANDER in a VERY hostile takeover. As “punishment” for crimes against the “Snake”, JAMES “DESTRO” MCCULLEN is forced to wear an irremovable metal helmet. He now serves Cobra with his technologically-advanced designs and business acumen, all while biding his time until he can overthrow COBRA COMMANDER and regain control of his family business.
From the Hub – He learned the hard way not to go up against COBRA. Arms dealer James “Destro” McCullen started M.A.R.S. Industries to compete with COBRA … until COBRA took it over by force. Now COBRA Commander makes Destro wear a metal helmet he can never remove, and he uses Destro’s tech skills and weapon designs to keep COBRA strong. Destro’s just itching for revenge.
