- Darklon is an Iron Grenadier character.
"Get in my way and I'll squash you like a gnat on my windscreen!"
The man known as Darklon was descended from a long line of mercenaries and war profiteers, and he was as greedy and amoral as any of them ever were. His family's ancestral home was an imposing castle in the tiny nation of Darklonia.
Darklon became involved with Cobra in 1989, shortly after Destro took control of the organization. Darklon was selling surplus Cobra and G.I. Joe vehicles, and Destro wanted test subjects for Dr. Mindbender's Pythonizing process, which rendered vehicles invisible to radar. Darklon sold Cobra a number of vehicles, testing them by sneaking over Darklonia's border with Wolkekuckuckland.
Eventually, Darklon joined with Destro's Cobra and took over the leadership of the Iron Grenadiers when Destro and the Baroness took time off away from Cobra. When Cobra began occupying parts of Sierra Gordo, Darklon led an attack on nearby Punta Del Mucosa. Later, he led a small army of Grenadiers against the country's native Tucaros, who were allied with a team of Joes and the Oktober Guard. After Destro severed his ties with Cobra, Darklon returned to his business interests in Darklonia. Years later, when Cobra took over neighboring Borovia, Cobra Commander brainwashed Destro into service and commandeered his castle in nearby Trans-Carpathia. When the Commander suggested Darklon was a threat to them, Destro casually launched a missile at Castle Darklon. The resulting explosion destroyed much of Castle Darklon and presumably killed Darklon himself.
Darklon, however, was not killed, and survived in a bunker beneath his castle. Rather than present himself as a new target, however, he let the world believe him dead while he slowly re-built his small weapons-manufacturing empire. In 2015, Darklon finally revealed himself, trying to undercut Destro's alliance with Cobra by offering more customized equipment at better prices than MARS. However, soon after Darklon was captured by G.I. Joe, and held at Autobot City.
