|HOT SEAT could have been a heavyweight contender. He had a left jab like a jack hammer, reflexes like liquid crystal, and the tactical mind of a 5-star general. He just wasn't too crazy about the job security or the probability of permanent brain stem damage. When asked for preferences on his enlistment, he replied, "Anything fast and furious!"|
"The Raider is a fast, heavily-armed, all-terrain, armored fighting vehicle that is perfect for modern, behind-the-lines confrontations! But a fighting machine, no matter how sophisticated, is only as effective as its operator. Hot Seat consciously works at attaining a sense of 'oneness' with his vehicle. He strives to make it respond to his will, in order to accomplish those feats which others consider to be impossible."
