SNOW STORM was recruited for the G.I. Joe team after COLONEL COURAGE saw him defeat an entire band of hostile revolutionaries who were trying to infiltrate a peaceful Caribbean village. Snow Storm accepted the Joe's offer but disliked his first assignment: trying to stop Cobra Vipers from attacking a science station at the north pole. He wasn't afraid of the Vipers; he just hated the cold! Nevertheless, he accomplished this frigid mission (and many others) with great success. After being given a customized, high-tech thermal suit to wear, he agreed to stay in the Arctic where he functions so well at pulverizing Cobra!
Motto: "If only I wasn't so good at my job, maybe I'd get assigned somewhere SOUTH of the equator!"
Toy Notes: Item #6779. Originally intended to be part of the canceled 1993 assortment of Eco-Warriors. Note that Snow Storm's motto makes no sense geographically.
