SPEARHEAD was the youngest and most successful insurance salesman in the Pacific North West. It was said that he could sell a term policy to a dead cow. Everybody liked him, trusted him, and bought more insurance from him than they could afford. He denies that guilt was a factor in his decision to join the Army-he simply felt that somebody had to do it. This determination to put the mission before his own needs made him a natural for the G.I. JOE team. When NIGHT FORCE conducts attacks against COBRA bases, SPEARHEAD and his nocturnal pet bobcat "Max" always lead the unit to give it an added punch through the enemy's defense lines!
From LT. FALCON's Files:
"When some guys try to lead a combat assault, they jump up and holler, 'Follow me!' and charge full tilt at a bunker. Halfway there, they look back, and no one's behind them! Of course not-the guy was a jerk. SPEARHEAD could jump face first into a vat of rabid hyenas and fifteen guys would follow him. No hesitation. They'd jump SMILING. And of course, that feral feline he trained would always be a source of inspiration."
Spearhead was available both boxed and bagged.
