Orphaned at the age of three by a drunken driver, HIT & RUN grew up in a county institution from which he escaped with alarming regularity, climbing down sheer walls and running for miles across the plains in the middle of the night. When asked what he was running away from, he replied, "I'm not running away from anything. I'm practicing." He went from the custody of the county directly into the United States Army. He was tapped soon after for the G.I. JOE team, where he finally found himself in a "family."
From LT. FALCON's Files:
"Infantrymen don't march, they run. They run to get to the battle, they run during the battle, and they run to get away from the battle. The Army doesn't call it running. They call the first 'advancing,' the second, 'maneuvering,' and the last, 'disengaging.' HIT & RUN calls it all running, and he's real good at it. Besides, a guy who can run in pitch darkness over dangerous terrain carrying a full load is perfect for NIGHT FORCE."
Hit & Run was available both boxed and bagged.
Hit & Run (version 3) was created using the torso and waist of Lifeline (v7) (2011), the upper arms of Shock Trooper (2011), the lower arms of Agent Mouse (2013), the hands of Footloose (v5) (2012), the legs of Snake Eyes (v54) (2011) with the modified knees of Firefly (v26) (2013), and a new head.
