Shockblast was the youngest member of the Detroit Police Department S.W.A.T. Team and the holder of two citations for bravery when he signed up for, and was accepted by, G.I. Joe. Having proven his qualifications through two previous units, he was chosen to be the squad leader for the G.I. Joe S.W.A.T. detachment. Every special weapons team needs a “door-kicker”. He´s the guy who crashes through the barricade first with all weapons blazing to find out how bad the situation really is. This requires an individual who is not only absolutely fearless, but once an entry point is breached he must also be sharp-minded enough to instantly distinguish the enemy from innocent bystanders. Ultimately, he calls the shots, whether to press the attack or retreat – usually in pure darkness and surrounded by smoke, gunfire and explosions!
Shockblast often uses rappelling devices to drop into the middle of hostile situations. While this does help him avoid booby-trapped doors and windows, he nonetheless is plunging directly into the heart of established enemy territory, with virtually no chance of backing out. But, will his nerves of steel be enough against titanium skin?
