Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, G.I. Jane was never animated.

Headcanon

Born November 20, 1941. During the late 1960s, G.I. Jane assisted the original G.I. Joe agent on many of his missions as described on her filecard, conducted military research in obscurity through the 1970s and 80s, and reappeared as Gen. Colton's "personal assistant" (actually lead scientist) in 1990. Her work was so secretive that she was unknown to Hawk and the rest of the Joe Team until they and Colton conducted several missions together in 1993 and 94. Jane's appearance during those missions is represented by Version 1.

G.I. JANE was a military operative whose cover was as a combat nurse. In missions around the globe, she provided her medical skills and scientific expertise in strategic defense technology. When G.I. JOE formed his covert team, he recruited her as a scientific specialist while maintaining her official cover as a nurse. She eventually "left" the military to get a Ph.D. in physics; while she no longer appeared in the active roster, she had, in fact, moved to deep cover operations. When G.I. JOE "retired" from the team and became head of secret military defense installation, he brought G.I. JANE onto the team as the lead scientist. Through her work in high-energy particle physics, she was instrumental in the development of a rapid-pulse electron beam to be used for global defense initiatives.
"It takes all kinds of soldiers to fight COBRA. I battle them by developing scientific technology. Of course, when I'm up to my ears in COBRA thugs, just throw me an M16 and get out of my way."
