Hydro-Vipers are qualified EELs (Cobra Frogmen) who volunteer to be surgically altered to withstand nitrogen narcosis and other side effects of deep diving. Synthetic webs are implanted between their fingers and subcutaneous fat production is stimulated by chemical injections to provide natural insulation. The long term effects of these procedures is known to be psychologically destabilizing...
"I'm sorry, those guys just aren't human anymore. They have a handshake like a dead mackerel and they leave damp spots on all the furniture. I realize that they are virtually unbeatable in underwater combat, but so is a great white shark—and I'll bet the shark is friendlier!"
Toy Notes: Item #6519. The hoses included are too short to attach securely to the mask and backpack. The prototype shown in the 1988 insert catalog had a black vest and purple flippers.
