Bio: Sniper Thomas J. Stall was rejected by G.I. Joe for failing his psychological exam and was suspected of being involved with the disappearance of his sister. After being imprisoned, Thomas broke out of a brig at Fort Huachuca during an attack by Cobra, to whom he surrendered willingly and subsequently joined.
Disgruntled because of his younger brother Barrel Roll made the team, he turned to Cobra, where the faults that disqualified him for G.I. Joe were considered assets. All his records are sealed but it is believed that the reason for his rejection had to do with possible involvment in the disappearance of his sister, Cadet BombShell. His expertise with long-range sniper rifles is the result of his obsession with accuracy. Black Out has no natural talent for stalking or shooting, persistence and practice have resulted in a high level proficiency that is never sparked by any flashes of brilliance. Cold and mechanical, he mistakenly believes that playing all the notes correctly and at the right time is what makes a song.
