Fifty percent of any military manual consists of mathematical tables for calculating amounts of explosives needed, safe firing distances, power requirements for firing circuits, and formulas for cutting structural steel, timber and breaching various forms of bunker material. Lightfoot has memorized all of them, as well as all the conversion tables for foreign and non-military explosives. He's not taking any cahnces...
"Lightfoot has elevated being careful to an artform. You might say he's a Zen fussbudget. His eyes sweep the ground before him in measured quadrants, alert for tripwires, signs of digging, and out-of-place vegetation. He sniffs the air for that tell-tale plastic explosive smell of 'dead rubber.' Lightfoot may take twice as long to clear an area, but at least you won't get any nasty surprises.
The security number on the filecard was originally listed as 075-09-4876. Later filecards changed this to 075-0948-OC76.
The copyright stamp on the figure can be found with "Made in Hong Kong" or "Made in China" on the waist.
Lightfoot's body is completely original - all new body parts.
Lightfoot's entire mold was re-used and re-colored to create Night Force Lightfoot (v2).
