Great news for fans of the Marvel books.

Have you been viewing the approach of Stephen SommersG.I. Joe with trepidation? Dread, even? Well, rest easy, soldier — we’ve got some news that should brighten up your day.

In an exclusive report, Latino Review has announced that Larry Hama — the writer described as “like the Stan Lee of the G.I. Joe universe” — has joined the film production, “most likely as a creative consultant.”

As Latino Review notes, Hama is the creator of Snake-Eyes, Storm Shadow, and Destro, among others, characters he developed while he was at the reins of Marvel’s G.I. Joe title. From the article:

Hama said in a 2006 interview that he was given the job by then editor-in-chief Jim Shooter after every other writer at Marvel had turned it down. Hama at the time had recently pitched a Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off series, Fury Force, about a daring special mission force. Hama used this concept as the back-story for G.I. Joe. He included military terms and strategies, Eastern philosophy, martial arts and historical references from his own background. The comic ran 155 issues (Feb. 1982-Oct. 1994).

Okay, so this doesn’t take away the fact that Sommers is making a movie out of a line of toys — or the comics and cartoons that were spun off from those toys, if you want to get specific — but it’s still got to be good news for Joe fans who have been worried about the film. Right?
