Bio: Hit & Run was orphaned at the age of three by a drunken driver. He grew up in a county institution, from which he often escaped by climbing down sheer walls and running for miles. He explained that he wasn't running away, he was "practicing". He enlisted in the Army once he left the custody of the county. Hit & Run became known as a fast runner, and became skilled at mountaineering. He was eventually assigned to the G.I. Joe team.
On his first mission for the team, he and several other new recruits fought to keep Cobra from claiming a newly-formed island not far from the original Cobra Island. They barely stopped Cobra before the entire land mass sunk back beneath the ocean.
Some time later, Hit & Run and a team of Joes stormed the offices of Nexus Tech -- a software company contracted by the government -- to foil a hostage situation. The mission was successful, but it turned out that the hostages and terrorists all worked for Cobra, who had made a deal with the company's owner to cover up documents that proved he was cheating the government for years.
Hit & Run's missions over the next few years included a mission to free a family being held hostage in their home in rural Iowa, and a battle with Iron Grenadiers in the jungles of Sierra Gordo. Hit & Run served on many more missions for G.I. Joe until the team was disbanded in 1994.
He was later called back to join the reinstated Joe team in its battle against the forces of a revived Serpentor on Cobra Island.
