She’s conniving, murderous, and will stab you in the back in a heartbeat. She’s the Baroness -- and lucky for her, women in black leather and librarian glasses are irresistibly sexy. This probably explains why she hasn’t been gunned down by the forces of G.I. JOE, or strangled in her sleep by her metal-clad lover, Destro!
In the original G.I. JOE A Real American Hero animated series, her heavily-accented voice was sent across the airwaves into our pre-pubescent earholes by none other than the talented Morgan Lofting. Decades have passed since the cartoon was originally on the TV, but the Baroness has managed to stay an integral part in every incarnation of the franchise from comic books to toys, and even the live-action feature film… but we won’t open THAT can of worms! All that aside, Morgan Lofting will be appearing at this year’s G.I. JoeCon, and now’s your chance to creepily tell her all about that childhood crush you had on her cartoon avatar!
