Hasbro QA Renegades
1) Since Renegades is an origins reboot of the GI Joe mythos, how do the writers decide whether to pull from the comics, the previous cartoons, the filecards, or branch out in a new direction?
Answer provided by Henry Gilroy, Story Editor/ Co-Developer:
Most often, we first build a story around our core Joes, then bring in new characters – “Future Joes” we call them – based upon a specific need, situation, or setting. For example, if our Joes ended up in jail, there are several possible “Future Joes” whom they might meet. We consider all the source material, and try to pull the best from and/or expand upon what already exists in the G.I. JOE brand mythology.
