Sunbow's Wet-Suit wore his first 1986 outfit, almost always without the helmet unless underwater. He had curly brown hair, his backpack sported propellers, and he carried a normal flashlight in place of the sled. In at least four episodes, he was occasionally drawn with the generic yellow frogsuit worn by other Joes, sometimes changing from one uniform to the other from shot to shot. The series paired him with Leatherneck, and the two would constantly trade insults related to their respective branches of service. Wet-Suit's file name is mentioned in the episode Ninja Holiday.

The DiC series used the 1992 outfit, again without the sled. In the Valor vs. Venom film, his outfit most closely resembled the first 2002 version.

Seals are the guys who were too nasty to be Airborne Rangers or Marines. The Navy keeps their SEALS locked up below decks until something bad becomes worse. That's when they all get dumped in the soup on a rubber raft with a knife, a gun, and all the ammo and explosives they can carry. Wet-Suit may just as well be the roughest one of the bunch. He's wild and unruly - but he's simply the best at what he does.
"Wet-Suit may be mean to the bone, but he's also quite bright, being well-read in both the classics and the standard texts of military tactics. Pretty amazing considering that the level to which he has developed his toughness would seem to indicate full-time occupation . . . "

WET-SUIT has been characterized as being "175 pounds of mean on the hoof" and is definitely not known for his social graces. He is not the type who goes over very well at the Chaplain Assistants' Social Tea, but he is exactly the dude you want behind you when you run into a gaggle of Cobra EELS in a shallow mine field. Amazing how much damage he can do with a Ka-Bar knife and a weighted belt. Wet-Suit is the head-honcho in charge of piloting the G.I. Joe Barracuda.

It is said that SEALs are the guys who were too nasty to be Airborne Rangers or Marines. That certainly qualifies in the case of Wet-Suit. The man is a walking attitude. Fortunately, he's not a walking attitude PROBLEM like Shipwreck, but Wet-Suit is almost as hard to keep in line. The problem may lie in the fact that he loves his work a little too much. His specialty is underwater demolitions, and he tends to use too heavy a hand when asked to blow up something. The last COBRA base he took out - a floating fortress - got blasted into so many pieces that there wasn't enough left to sink.
From General Hawk's Files: "Wet-Suit is wild and unruly, exactly the opposite of the unit's commander, Torpedo, but he's not as obnoxious as Shipwreck. He's also much more intelligent than he comes across. I just wish he'd exercise more caution in his work. We could really use a little more evidence of COBRA's oceanic operations for evaluation than inch-wide pieces of metal and plastic."

He's smart as a whip, quick as a deer, and mean to the bone. Best to stay out of his way, even on a good day. Probably the reason why he's a SEAL - he has the personality of a wet fish. No wonder the Navy keeps their SEALS locked up below decks until something bad becomes worse. That's when they're in their element and they all get dumped in the soup on a rubber raft with a knife, a gun, and all the ammo and explosives they can carry. Doesn't matter how fast their target is moving - they get it every time. Wet-Suit may just be the roughest, and most precise, one of the bunch. Even the most frightful sea creatures run for cover when Wet-Suit hits their turf. He's wild and unruly - but he's simply the best at what he does.

WET-SUIT has been called "the nastiest combination of shark, eel, and stingray that you can think of." He was trained as a S.E.A.L., the toughest training in the Navy, and is an expert in marine operations and demolitions. He is not known for his social graces - you wouldn't catch him chatting with guys in three-piece suits about the latest Broadway play, but when you need someone who can take out a COBRA underwater base with just some fishing line and a knife, then he's your guy. In the Atlantis Battle, he stormed Cobra Island and destroyed a marine assault plan that COBRA MORAY had been planning for years. because of that, he is now the top target for COBRA MORAY's next attack.
