Motto: "You only get one shot at me. When it's my turn, you'll crash and burn."
Ace would rather fly than do anything else. He's a legend in the sky with an outstanding mission record. Ace joined the G.I. Joe team after serving as a Senior Instructor for the U.S.A.F.'s Fighter weapons squadron (a.k.a the "Aggressors"). Put him in the cockpit of any high-powered craft, and he'll be performing daring aerobatic maneuvers that other pilots would consider impossible. Suffice it to say, he's an expert - qualified to fly the F-5E, F-16, XP-14F and Ghost Striker X-16 jet. He thought he had reached the top, until the change to fly low-level ground attacks presented itself. Flying the A-10 Ground Attack jet introduced him to a whole new area, and Ace was ready for the challenge. Gliding just above the trees for a bombing run on a COBRA outpost is almost as fun as winning five straight hands at his favorite card game, poker. Gambling would ordinarily disqualify any applicant from the team, but since he NEVER loses, it isn't really gambling.
From General Hawk's File: "Ace is a fast thinker with great judgement. His knowledge of air-combat and dog-fighting skills is extraordinary. A man you can trust anytime except at the card table. He has what it takes to accomplish the mission and bring himself and the aircraft home in one piece. If I didn't trust his skill, I wouldn't ride along with him."
There is a variation with Ace's feet. Some feet are molded in brown plastic with the boots painted black, while others are molded in black plastic with the pant legs painted brown. Additionally, some figures came with one of each type, making for a total of four variations.
Versions of Ace
In 2008, Ace was renamed "Capt. Ace." So while there are multiple names, they are all based on the character "Ace."
