Sure Fire grew up on the proverbial poor side of town, in a neighborhood so rough that the street signs were covered with banners that read "Get Out While You Still Can!" While other kids were running numbers and hanging on street corners, Sure Fire was studying the martial arts with such skill and determination that he earned a black belt in Shoto-Kan Karate-Do on his sixteenth birthday. Seeing so many of life's injustices at such an early age made Sure Fire vow to defend the rights of others at all costs. After graduating from the Police Academy—where to this day, he still holds the record for not missing a single target—he joined the special investigation unit of the FBI. There he was first introduced to the workings of a terrorist organization called COBRA Command, having been assigned to investigate several of its high ranking members. His keen eye and sharp attention to detail didn't go unnoticed by the G.I. Joe Team. Recruiting was cinch once Sure Fire found out that extensive target practice took place every day before breakfast. He did them one better . . . those jelly doughnuts didn't have holes in the middle until Sure Fire loaded his gun!

The evil acts of COBRA are many, and the United States military needs a specially trained force to get all the information they can about COBRA. SURE FIRE is a special agent for the Army's Criminal Investigation Division. At the CID, SURE FIRE is part of the Military Police, trained to look into criminal activities and stop them. He grew up in a rough neighborhood and saw a lot of serious criminal acts. Those experiences made him determined to defend the rights of others at all costs. He went to the U.S. Army Military Police School and completed specialized training. Now he has joined the G.I. JOE team and is dedicated to fighting criminals as an arm of the law and a soldier on the battlefield. In one investigation, SURE FIRE came up against COBRA SLICE. His finely honed military and police skills got the better of the sword-wielding ninja—and made him COBRA SLICE's bitter enemy.
"If evil is being done anywhere in the world, I'll find out about it—and stop it."
