Heli-Viper











Previous character: Air Devil
Next character: General Flagg

 

Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, Heli-Vipers were never animated.

Headcanon

Heli-Vipers were introduced to Cobra's forces in early 1988. Fitted with high-tech airtight, pressure- and temperature-adjustable suits, they could operate Battle Copters at altitudes only certain jet fighters could reach and were lethal in dogfights with superior aircraft. They ranked in the first and highest tier of Vipers, alongside Snow Serpents and Ninja Vipers, and above Astro-Vipers and Aero-Vipers.

HELI-VIPERS are a fearless unit of Cobra agents trained for the most perilous aerial missions. They are the elite of the elite in Cobra aviators. A Cobra interested in becoming a Heli-Viper is personally selected and screened by Cobra Commander himself! One segment of their training involves performing extremely risky aerobatic maneuvers under live fire, blind-folded and without any weapons. Needless to say, any candidate who does not pass this portion of the training is out of the program . . . permanently!
Toy Notes: Item #6756. The prototype shown in the 1992 insert catalog has purple eyes.
