"Call me Snake"
Rebel and rule breaker Snake Plissken appears for the first time at John Carpenter's movies "Escape from New York" and "Escape from L.A.".
In 2002 Snake stepped on the page of comics at the Hurricane Entertainment graphic novel " John Carpenter's Snake Plissken Chronicles". The first issue was written by William O'Neil and Tone Rodriguez.
"F..ck you, I'm going to Hollywood..."
Snake is considered a war criminal, he's the one who dares to stand against the System. But what can one man do?
The lone wolf , a man with a strong character and specific sense of humor, he became a legend, a myth. Some even thought he was dead or in prison for life, but Snake had a talent to escape from even the worst disaster.
He is a former US Army lieutenant, he was Special Forces, part of Team Black Light, awarded two purple hearts, and the youngest soldier to be decorated by the president for bravery during World War III against the USSR. He turned to a life of crime shortly after. It was thought to be because of the betrayal of the government during the Leningrad ruse. Snake had partners; Harold Hellman a.k.a Brain, and Fresno Bob.
In Kansas city Hellman let Plissken and Fresno get cornered by the police, who brutally beat and tortured Frenso Bob and Plissken.
In 1997 he was arrested and was sentenced to life in the New York city maximum security prison. However, when the president falls into peril, only one man can save him: Snake Plissken. Robert Huke offers Snake a full pardon for everything he has done if he agrees to rescue the president. He accepts and they put a killer virus into his blood stream as insurance. Snake had forty eight hours to get the president before the virus killed him. He succeeded with the help of Harold Hellman, Brain's helper Maggie, and a taxi driver named Cabby.
Sixteen years later snake was called on again for a similar mission, this time sent to Los Angeles which separated from the US in the year 2000 and was turned into an island for people exiled by the United States. Snake had to retrieve a black box which the president's daughter, Utopia, went into LA with. The president says he doesn't care if she is returned or killed, she is a traitor to his country. Snake refuses but is injected with the plutoxin 7 virus and will be dead in several hours. So his hand is forced once again, this time to retrieve the black box. Snake retrieved the box and returned it to the president. But when the president tried to activate it he learned it wasn't the real box. Snake is the one with the real box and uses it to deactivate all the technology in the world.
In a world full of chaos and turmoil, Snake will probably feel right at home.
