SGT. HACKER was a computer specialist at Fort Leonard Wood repairing the mainframes that handle the personnel records when he heard that the G.I. JOE Team was looking for an information retrieval specialist. He immediately hacked into the Pentagon computer system and put his own name at the top of the candidate list. When he was hauled in front of GENERAL TOMAHAWK and asked how he thought such a clumsy attempt would make him look good, he replied that what he did was only to get their attention. Then SGT. HACKER laid a disk on the table that contained the general's high school records including copies of detention slips.
Much of the COBRA central computing system is hidden within a top-secret base with no external access. To hack the COBRA system, SGT. HACKER has to physically get inside the secured base, and the surest and most dangerous way is by posing as a COBRA trooper. It is believed that on one of his raids into COBRA territory he had a hand-to-hand encounter with COBRA medic SCALPEL and got the better of him.
"If it's digital and in memory someplace, I can get it. If that means putting on a COBRA suit and going where they live, then that's fine by me."
Variations: Most copies have a head originally molded in Sgt. Hacker's skin color; a few heads are painted.
