Originally Larry Hama came up with an idea for a story that involved Nick Fury's son running an offshoot of SHIELD that operated in the Marvel Universe. Well, when Marvel Comics got the rights to do a comic series for the GI Joe toyline, Hama's idea evolved and the character that was meant to be Nick Fury's son became General Hawk and that offshoot of SHIELD became GI Joe.
