Agent Faces came a black shotgun and a mask to disguise himself as a Crimson Guardsman.

Motto: "I'm only successful if I'm undetected, even if I do get caught out, I can still remain undercover as long as I beat the COBRA who caught me to the draw - and that's a given."
Born with a natural talent for mimicry, AGENT FACES amused his fellow recruits during basic training with his uncanny imitations of the drill sergeants and company cadre. He was doing a brutally accurate impression of the first sergeant, when that self-same top-kick caught him in the act. Instead of drawing punishment duty, AGENT FACES found himself before an evaluation board and was whisked off to a top-secret intelligence school where they taught him to sculpt masks, apply makeup, and change himself into whoever he wanted to be. Disguised as a COBRA CRIMSON GUARD, he infiltrated COBRA mountain as part of a daring mission, working with SHIPWRECK to open the mountain's hangar doors and allow the rest of the GI JOE team to storm the stronghold.
No variations of Agent Faces (v2) are known to exist.
