Series: Eighteen (2002)
Undertow (version 3) was released as part of the eighteenth series (2002) boxed in an eight-pack Exclusive to BJ's Wholesale Club and Fred Meyer stores. Also included were a reprint of Image Comics' G.I. Joe #1, Dial Tone, Roadblock, Snake Eyes, Wet-Suit, Fast Blast Viper, Firefly, and Storm Shadow.
Undertow came with a silver Sound Attack chainsaw, a dark gray machine pistol, and a black backpack.
Primary Specialty: Underwater Operations
Any frogman can operate efficiently in clean water, under optimum conditions, but the UNDERTOW are specially trained to function and fight in the murky, polluted waters surrounding busy industrial and military waterfronts. Their wetsuits are made of a nontoxic, anti-corrosive material, and their face masks are coated with silicone to repel oil slicks. They are almost impossible to capture or defeat because others cannot enter the hostile water environments in which they work.
"We swim through anything to get the job done."
No variations of Undertow (v3) are known to exist.
The same mold was used to create the original Undertow (1990) and Undertow (1990). The head from Undertow was used to create Fast Blast Viper (2001) and Fast Blast Viper (v2) (2002). The head was also modified to create the head for Laser Viper (v2) (2001).
Although Undertow (version 3) and Fast Blast Viper (v2) (2002) share the same head in nearly the same color, they are not the same. Fast Blast Viper's head has a glossier flesh tone, and Undertow's head has the whites of the eyes painted.
