Notes: Sunbow's Wild Weasel wore his 1984 outfit with no Cobra insignia on the right shoulder. The blue under his neck was usually drawn as a cravat worn over the flight jacket. His appearance in Valor vs. Venom is somewhat obscured by his vehicle's canopy and motion blur, but he appears to be based on the first 2004 version.

Burt Devall, born August 7, 1945, in Wellington, England. Having previously fought for hire in Paraguay, South Africa, and Rhodesia, Wild Weasel began flying for Cobra in September 1981, with his appearance represented by Version 8. All Cobra air divisions answered to him, and he personally selected Vipers applying for the highest ranking positions. He continued working for Cobra after the organization's re-emergence in 1991, with his appearance represented by Version 2, changing to Version 4 in 1993.

Wild Weasel cut his teeth in the bus [sic, should be "bush"] wars of South America and Africa during the last decade. His knowledge of close support aircraft ranges from jury-rigged civilian conversions to ultra state-of-the-art flying weapons platforms. A mouth injury inflicted during a strafing run is rumored to be the cause of the characteristic sibilance in his speech pattern.
Wild Bill says: "He may be a back-shootin', low down snake in the grass, but the boy can fly like nobody's business. You gotta respect the skunk for that! Hey - what did Voltaire say? To forgive our enemies their virtues - that is the greater miracle."
Variations: The panel on Wild Weasel's right leg is reversed on some figures.

WILD WEASEL learned his trade flying for COBRA operations in every hemisphere in which the evil organization conducts its corrupt business. His knowledge of close support aircraft ranges from jury-rigged civilian conversions to state-of-the-art flying weapons platforms. When the COBRA ground forces are engaged in battle against G.I. JOE troops, WILD WEASEL swoops in to try and take out the enemy's armored vehicles. When he's in the cockpit of the RATTLER, he makes the most of the plane's capabilities for flying low and slow. As wild and unpredictable as his code name, he'll buzz his own guys just to cause them trouble.
"There's no place where G.I. JOE can run or hide when I'm flying above them!"
Toy Notes: Boxed with the Toys 'R Us-exclusive gold Rattler vehicle. Item #53182. The Wild Weasel pictured on the Rattler box has an original torso with a holster and backpack straps in place of the chest panel.

WILD WEASEL is proud of his new COBRA RAVEN jet because it's a double threat. It can attack from the air, and in SPY TROOPS mode, converts to a hydrofoil for water missions.
"Fighting for COBRA forces to create lots of trouble, on the land and sea or air WILD WEASEL is there!"

When the COBRA ground forces are engaged in battle against G.I. JOE troops, WILD WEASEL swoops in to try and take out the enemy's armored vehicles.

As wild and unpredictable as his code name, he'll even buzz his own guys just to amuse himself.

Much of the COBRA air-to-ground arsenal is state-of-the-art "Fire-and-Forget" weaponry that home in on engine heat or are directed by radar. These can be defeated by exhaust baffles and electronic jamming. The real test of a ground support pilot is whether he can deliver unguided weapons with accuracy. WILD WEASEL has an unerring eye for judging distance and speed, a steady hand on the joystick, and the nerve to keep his sights on the target while being shot at with both ground fire and heat-seeking missiles. WILD WEASEL is a total loner and has no friends even among his fellow COBRA troopers. He always tries to steer conversations around to "trajectory calculations" and "wind deflection," which might be interesting to other people who drop things that go bang from fast moving aircraft, but is yawn-inducing to everybody else. He doesn't realize that people shun him because he's weird. He thinks they are in awe of him.
"I love to look through my bomb sights and see G.I. JOE vehicles lined up in row. Even more, I like to see them after I've bombed them into twisted hunks of metal."
Toy Notes: Carded in a two-pack with Gung Ho (04/II). Item #55995.
