GENERAL MAYHEM is a former Spetsnaz (Special Purpose Forces) commander for the Russion Army. For years, he carried out deep reconnaissance missions and blitzkrieg-style attacks with flawless efficiency for the motherland. Followed by a devoted cadre of soldiers that shared his vision of ruthless conquest and utter destruction of the weak, his arrogance inevitably was his own downfall. After a particularly terrifying campaign of merciless interrogation and elimination of alleged enemies of the state, he and his comrades were stripped of rank and incarcerated. Escaping before they could be tried, they fled to the criminal underground where they remain wanted for crimes against humanity, relentlessly pursued by the OKTOBER GUARD (a Russian counterpart to the G.I. Joe® Team).
Resurfacing several years later under the guise of GENERAL MAYHEM, this effective but cruel leader found a welcome home with DESTRO's® IRON GRENADIERS. His apparent viciousness is barely tempered by his sheed military brilliance, oftten formulating bewildering attack plans that appear totally chaotic and disorienting to his opponents, but ultimately come together in an idomitable orchestration of troops and artillery - truly the work of a mad genius. While their methods may be different, DESTRO® appreciates a general who is not afraid to make unpopular decisions and take the blame - or take the credit as GENERAL MAYHEM puts it!
No variations of General Mayhem (v1) are known to exist.
