SCRAP IRON loves to disable vehicles, using weapons that go "bang" loudly and make a huge mess. His specialty is laser-guided anti-tank weaponry and armor-piercing munitions. He is methodical and precise, plotting out moves, countermoves, and counter-countermoves as he heads toward a wall of G.I. JOE vehicles. Whatever happens, he wants to have a plan in place to defeat the enemy. He irritates everyone with his demands for perfection, but he is tolerated because he always gets the job done. SCRAP IRON is also a product designer for the armament company owned by DESTRO. To field-test his designs, he sets up de-commissioned COBRA B.A.T. robots on a field and blasts away at them.
