Skull Squad Trooper











Previous character: Coil Trooper
Next character: Snow Serpent Commander

 

Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, Skull Squad Troopers were never animated.

Headcanon

The Skull Squad are a dozen troopers whose skill sets mirror those of Hawk's original G.I. Joe team, assembled by Major Bludd in 1993 for missions that required greater expertise than could be had from rank-and-file Vipers. Their appearance is represented by Version 1.

The SKULL SQUAD represents the most talented, highly trained, and notorious freelance mercenaries known in MAJOR BLUDD's shady circle of operations. They are an international cadre of clandestine operatives. Each member has been hand-picked for his specific skills and use of unorthodox tactics, and further trained personally by MAJOR BLUDD in his unique close quarter combat techniques. Their sole purpose is to track down and dispose of specified targets. Although they are essentially bounty hunters with little regard for ideological, national, or political considerations, they can always be counted on to get the job done—if the price is right.
Each member of the Skull Squad has his own devious methods for locating targets, but as a group they are able to put their differences aside for a common monetary goal. Their special talents will be put to the test in determining the location of the most intense G.I. JOE training camp, code named "The Slaughterhouse." Disposing of the top drill instructor SGT. SLAUGHTER is another matter—regardless of any bonus MAJOR BLUDD has promised them!
"Always strike at the top; then you can watch as the rest crumbles in defeat!"
