I've noticed the similarities before as well.
I don't think that 80s kids were being prepared for a future with the NWO though.
In the 80s Marvel comics writer Larry Hamma created a group of commandos that were to be lead by Nick Fury's son. They were to take on Marvel's well known terrorist group Hydra. Marvel rejected Hamma's Idea until Hasbro came along.
In the 80's Hasbro looked at the success of the Star Wars toy line and wanted to relaunch G.i.Joe hoping for the same success. Hasbro approached Marvel for character design and they used Larry Hamma's ideas. Nick Fury's son became Duke and Hydra became Cobra.
