Motto: "Big and bad doesn't impress me. Everything has a weak spot, and when you have the patience to know when to strike and the skill to hit your mark at a mile's distance, ALL will fall."
BARREL ROLL has spent the better part of his adult life preparing for each shot to be the one that counts the most. He understands the seriousness of his role on the G.I. JOE team and trains constantly to be ready at a moment's notice to do what must be done, as the lives of civilians or his fellow soldiers will be on the line. A strong love for country and team was infused into him at an early age by his father, who served in the Navy as a navigator on a P3 Orion. BARREL ROLL's father taught his children the strength of family and teamwork. This made his brother's betrayal all the more bitter.
In simpler times the Stall family would spend summers together at Dale Hollow Lake camping, shooting, and cliff diving. Now, those memories have been erased by a rash decision on a training mission that ultimately drove BARREL ROLL's older brother BLACK OUT into the grips of COBRA. At first he hoped to bring his brother in, but after learning of his complicity in the diabolical kidnapping of their younger sister, he is now prepared to do whatever it takes to make sure BLACK OUT never hurts anyone again - no matter what toll it takes on his own soul.
No variations of Barrel Roll (v4) are known to exist.
