Although he is more likely to be wielding a soldering gun than one that shoots bullets, HI-TECH can be depended on to pitch in during a real fight, by taking control of any number of complex technological weapons systems used by the G.I. JOE team as they battle the nefarious forces of COBRA. A good-natured soul who can't bring himself to say "no," HI-TECH spends most of his off-duty time repairing the personal vehicles of G.I. JOE teammates, fixing their TVs and stereo systems, and troubleshooting their PCs and laptops. He doesn't mind it a bit. He says it's all good practice for when a key piece of a weapons system fails during a real fight. His latest work involves developing technology that can remove the animal hybridization venom that has been developed by DR. MINDBENDER to create more powerful and dangerous COBRA troops.
"If it isn't alive or art, I can fix it."
