BIG BEAR grew up in a place where the conditions are cold, wet, and nasty-every day! He can be meaner than a Siberian wolf with its leg caught in a steel trap, and wilder than a Murmansk fur merchant. After several years of service, he was transferred from the elite 103rd Guards Airborne Division onto the OKTOBER GUARD team. As their heavy weapons specialist, he carries a shoulder-launched rocket weapon with High Explosive Anti-Armor (HEAA) rockets. He has a particular way of handling any situation, especially during combat operations. It looks as if he actually savors every moment before destroying fortified bunkers, tanks and other mechanized infantry vehicles.
In all our lives, there comes a time when the power of evil becomes so threatening to world peace that global leaders must join together to stop its impending danger; COBRA is just such an evil. That's when they send BIG BEAR into the fight alongside the G.I. JOE team.
