The Baroness (Baroness Anastasia de Cobray) is Cobra's chief intelligence officer. She is a master of disguise, has a romantic relationship with Destro, usually tries to off the Cobra Commander, and is universally considered to be excessively hot. This is mildly disturbing when one considers that her card bio mentions she's a burn victim.
Marvel Comics continuity
On Cobra Island, the Baroness watched while Cobra Commander berated Zartan for allowing his Dreadnoks to reveal Cobra's interest in Power Station Alpha. Later, she flirted with new Cobra leader Serpentor over some quail (much to the disgust of Destro), and watched as Doctor Mindbender seized control of Power Station Alpha. After Serpentor and Shockwave struck a Cobra-Decepticon alliance, the Baroness departed the island in a Rattler and met with secret Cobra conspirator Senator Barbara Larkin in Washington, D.C. for a nice cup of tea. Larkin was unhappy about her involvement in the Power Station Alpha affair, but the Baroness curtly dismissed her concerns. Back at Cobra Island, she saved Mindbender from their treacherous "ally" Bombshell and went to Seattle where Cobra and G.I. Joe had entered into an alliance to stop Power Station Alpha, which was now under Decepticon control. The Baroness grudgingly teamed with Scarlett and Goldbug to plant explosives on the power station, to be detonated if and only if the Decepticon control of the station could not be overridden...but the Baroness blew it up anyway. Later, she had Senator Larkin shot. Man.
She tortured Flint using decades-old tools.
As G.I. Joe and the Autobots' combined army approached the Cobra fortress, she and her secret lover, Destro, came together to overthrow the Commander. She murdered the Commander using Megatron's gun mode and was arrested by Scarlett.
