|The G.I. JOE Team has seen big, bad-to-the-bone COBRA troopers stumble to a halt when they spot MAJOR BARRAGE steaming toward them on the battlefield. At 6'8" and 300 pounds, this massive mountain of a man can single-handedly mow down a squadron and keep on going without breaking a sweat. He's an ex-collegiate Division 1 wrestler who uses his wrestling skills in close quarters combat to take down the enemy. However, he'll go with a brute force smash of his huge fists to get the job done, which is just as effective although less stylish. Intelligent and thoughtful off the battlefield, MAJOR BARRAGE lets his two tech-enhanced shotguns do all the talking in a combat situation. The team is relieved he's on their side, since his fast temper and faster fists are legendary.|
"I don't mind taking a hit or two, if it means I can get close enough to a COBRA trooper to wrap my hands around his neck and give a little squeeze."
