Notes: Sunbow's Maj. Bludd wore his 1983 outfit but with white or light grey chest armor, gloves, and boots. His dog tags were absent, and his helmet was various shades of blue or dark grey. The collar was usually blue. Also, his armor covered the whole right arm except the elbow. Despite fan theories that the arm is artificial, his bare right hand is visible in Cobrathon. Early ads for Marvel comics gave him blue armor. In the DiC series, Bludd wore his Super Sonic Fighters outfit, but that figure's jet pack never appeared on the show.

Bludd received initial military training in the Australian Special Air Service. Later joined the French Foreign Legion.

Bludd has a tactical mind like a steel trap. Qualified Expert: All NATO and Warsaw Pact small arms.
Major Bludd writes poetry...badly: When you're feeling low and woozy/Slap a fresh clip in your Uzi!/Assume the proper firing stance/And make the suckers jump and dance! (from The Attica Gazette).
Note: A few filecards give a less violent poem, as follows: A mercenary's job is a heartless one/I'm a soldier for hire like a pawn-shop gun/My ruthless tactics keep you on your toes/'Cause I fight 'em all, whether friends or foes!
Toy Notes: Originally available via the Free Mercenary mail offer, which required receipts dated Jan.-Feb. 1983. Featured in the F.A.N.G. commercial. Despite occasional rumors, no straight-arm version of this figure was ever released. Bludd's right arm is only articulated at the shoulder; whether this is armor or a bionic piece is a matter of ongoing debate.

MAJOR BLUDD is a total mercenary slime who would think nothing of renting out his own grandmother as a tackling dummy. Wanted on three continents just on general principles, he is adept with plastic explosives, long-range sniper rifles, garrotes, blunt instruments, poisoned ice picks, Saturday Night Specials, and anything with nasty spikes sticking out of it. When he heard Cobra had invented the ultimate in sonic weapons, he promptly went out and stole his own private arsenal.
"Major Bludd writes really bad poetry. Rhymes that get rejected by PRISON newsletters, limericks that miss the beat, haiku with sixteen syllables, and free-form couplets about assault rifles and bayonet lugs. Those who have received manuscripts from Major Bludd would have preferred letter bombs..."

A mercenary's job is a heartless one, and MAJOR BLUDD continues to prove that his heart was lost long ago. He has been on the COBRA payroll numerous times, but it's his freelance activities that have given him the "bad" reputation. His latest endeavor calls for him to recruit an international group of the most cutthroat soldiers-for-hire, send them to the four corners of the world to track down the latest location of SGT. SLAUGHTER's secret training base, and remove the drill instructor - permanently.
