Motto: "With me, it's not so much wanting to hit the bulls-eye as really hating to miss."
A marksman needs to control the high ground, but he also has to have the means to get there totally unnoticed. BARREL ROLL uses specially modified COBRA personal gliders combined with COBRA battle armor to penetrate enemy territory. BARREL ROLL jumps from a plane at an extremely high altitude, above enemy radar range, and free falls with an oxygen mask. At the last moment, he deploys his glider system and flies low to the ground below enemy radar until he lands at a suitable position where he digs in and stays motionless for up to three days before he takes his shot. BARREL ROLL has been practicing all his life to be what he is. Even as a kid, he could stay stock still for such long periods of time that teachers would think he was sleeping with his eyes open, until he blinked and faithfully repeated everything that had been discussed in the class. He was a whiz at math, which is essential for calculating trajectories. BARREL ROLL was the absolute best at anything that had to do with accuracy.
No variations of Barrel Roll (v1) are known to exist.
The body was modified from Barrel Roll (2003). Note that the forearms and the calves sport connection pegs for blocks.
