Role in the transition to Cobra
Red Laser is one of a handful of Red Shadow characters incorporated into the storyline that accompanied the transition to Cobra in the mid 1980s. The change in direction saw a storyline [ [http://www.bloodforthebaron.com/Blood/World%20Enemy%20No.%201.html World Enemy No. 1] storyline courtesy of [http://www.bloodforthebaron.com Blood for the Baron!] ] where Ironblood betrays the Red Shadows, leaking information about their bases and intentions to the UN. As the Shadows are wiped out, Ironblood goes into hiding and constructs a new identity for himself, becoming
