A graduate of West Point, G.I. JOE rose through the ranks and distinguished himself as an outstanding soldier. He was recruited by Special Forces and became a Green Beret, participating in covert missions in trouble spots around the world. Soon he was the most sought after expert on secret operations and successfully led many of the most challenging missions ever conducted. With the rise of the COBRA organization, it became apparent that a special team was needed to fight this dangerous threat. G.I. JOE was chosen to form this elite force, and the GI JOE team was born. G.I. JOE himself "retired" from the team and disappeared from the official military roster. But unofficially, he is the head of a secret strategic defense initiative installation whose lead scientist is non other than G.I. JANE.
"Duty, honor, country. They're not just words; they're the way to live your life."
No variations of G.I. Joe (v2) are known to exist.
G.I. Joe (version 2)'s torso, waist and legs were previously used to create Wild Bill (v9) (2004) and Wild Bill (v10) (2005). His arms were previously used to create Barrel Roll (v3) (2005) and S.A.W. Viper (v3) (2005). G.I. Joe (version 2)'s head was originally used to create Sgt. Stalker (v4) (2004).
Versions of G.I. Joe
