A former U.S. Army nurse who served with the original G.I. Joe team during the 1960s.
After her time with G.I. Joe, Jane went back to school for her doctorate in a physics, and eventually began working in the field of laser weaponry. She led a team of scientists in the development of a power laser weapon for the government's top secret Strategic Defense Initiative installation hidden in New York City's Chrysler Building.
Joseph Colton -- the original G.I. Joe -- had long since retired, but became head of security for the installation. In 1988, the SDI facility came under attack by a large number of Cobra Vipers. The current G.I. Joe team sent a group to assist in the defense of the laser. Colton met Hawk, the Joe team's commander and together they fought off Cobra's attack. Hawk was so impressed by Colton's leadership in the situation, he made him an honorary member of the team. Joe was so amused by Hawk's offer that he revealed his and Jane's true identities.
Years later, Cobra again attempted to take control of the SDI building. Joe and Jane teamed up with the G.I. Joe team once again and used portable battle copters to fight off the terrorists. Cobra managed to fire off one shot with the laser, which was only used to destroy a ship running drugs into their town of Broca Beach.
Years later, after the Joe team was reinstated, General Colton came out of retirement to help the Joes by filling in as their commanding officer in the absense of Hawk, who was shot by Cobra Commander and lay in a hospital bed, paralyzed. Jane joined him, having all ready helped set up the communications equipment at the team's new headquarters.
