|James "Destro" McCullen|
James McCullen XXIV
Destro is the codename of Laird James McCullen XXIV, weapons supplier for Cobra.
James McCullen is the current head of the arms dealing clan of McCullen. Going into the business himself as CEO of M.A.R.S Industries, he sold to both sides: first to NATO, then to Cobra. As a leading arms dealer, he made a fortune. The funding for the company is believed to be coming from the McCullen clan. He has a relationship with the Baroness and feels threatened by Duke taking every opportunity to insult or aggravate him.
After his face is disfigured by Duke when he tried to use a flamethrower only to have it backfire by Duke firing the Baroness' pulse weapon at him, Cobra Commander heals his face with nanomites, giving his face a silver metallic appearance, and he re-christens McCullen "Destro" , the right hand of Cobra Commander. The name Destro came from his ancestor who also had his face burned and was forced to wear a iron mask for the rest of his life. The name means destroyer of worlds, as explained by Destro, who owns the very iron mask his ancestor was imprisoned in. He has since been arrested by G.I. Joe, along with Cobra Commander.
Destro works for Team Bara, aka Cobra during the war.
