Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, Skull Buster was never animated.

Headcanon

Danny Miranda, born July 10, 1960, in Furnace Creek, California. First cousin to Scalpel. In early 1992, in an effort to streamline its command structure and facilitate loyalty, Cobra designated a single leader from within each of its troop types, a villainous role model to be in command of and accountable for the entire unit, though holding no special rank over other Cobras. Skull Buster, commander of the Range-Vipers, is represented by Version 1.

SKULL BUSTER worked his way up through the ranks of the RANGE VIPERS by being twice as mean and three times as nasty as the rest. He is the ultimate survivor; there is no creature that crawls, slithers, or scuttles on six legs that he will not cheerfully dine upon. SKULL BUSTER actually thinks of himself as the predator at the top fo the food chain. In spite of this attitude, he does have a practical side. Taped to the inside of his locker door is a picture of G.I. JOE HEAVY DUTY, inscribed with these words, "Know your enemy." RANGE VIPERS are expected to operate behind enemy lines without communications or supplies. Trained to live off the land their only source of ammunition is whatever they capture from troops they defeat. This makes them extremely resourceful and tenacious. One squad of RANGE VIPERS made it through their survival course by gnawing on a carcass that had already been picked clean by vultures and jackals. SKULL BUSTER would have eaten the vultures and jackals.
"Any wimp with a scout handbook, a Swiss army knife, and a compass can survive."
