Notes: In the first miniseries only, Cover Girl wore a green jacket and pants and had long, blond hair. Thereafter, she had her 1983 outfit, with hair ranging from brick red to burnt orange, and her boots were sometimes black. Early ads for Marvel comics and her brief appearances in G.I. Joe: The Movie gave her longer hair.

AGENT KRIEGER was a cover girl and fashion model in Chicago and New York prior to enlistment. She grew disillusioned with the shallow world of modeling and joined the military to take her life in a more meaningful direction. Now instead of being swathed in silk, she is covered in grease, and couldn't be happier. She is proficient in diesel mechanics and gas turbine technology, and can perform diagnostics, maintenance, and repair on any AFV that rolls into the vehicle bay, as well as fabricate new parts from scrap metal in the field. This glamour girl turned grease monkey is totally in her element talking about compression ratios and internal combustion over donuts and coffee. The only time she needs a stiletto heel is to loosen a rusty lug nut.
"People realize I'm more than just a pretty face when they bring in a busted up vehicle and I give it back to them running smoothly and ready for battle."
Toy Notes: Carded in a three-pack with Spirit Iron-Knife (06), Hannibal: Reborn (06), and a reprint of Devil's Due #16. Item #13023. Agent Krieger's backpack hole is only half formed and is covered by her jacket. Also, she has a pop-off head to allow her jacket to be removed. This figure is considered a high-demand item.
