Bio: Altitude was a full-blooded Apache and the some of a famous Hollywood stuntman. He was gifted with a photographic memory and a talent for drawing. His first career as a cartoon animator was cut short by the collapse of syndicated cartoon programming and decided to enlist in the Army.
As a recon scout, Altitude can make detailed maps and sketches of military installations while in the field when electronic surveillance may be inappropriate. He occasionally worked with the G.I. Joe team before it was shut down in 1994.
He was called back to the team when the reinstated team fought the forces of a revived Serpentor on Cobra Island. Today, like many Joes, Altitude is a reserve member if the current Joe team.
