Bad guys are cooler than good guys. It’s an unrefuted fact. COBRA commandos look way cooler than the generic soldiers of G.I. Joe and Stormtroopers are way more badass than bathrobe-wearing Jedi. No, I don’t believe in what they stand for, but they are snappy dressers with the best toys. As a child of the 1980s, I grew up seeing bad dudes rocking AK-47 rifles. If they were seriously bad, with the ultimate evil machine gun: the notorious AKS-47.
