Being a full-blooded Apache Indian and the son of a famous Hollywood stunt man, Altitude had a lot to live up to. Altitude was gifted with both a photographic memory and a talent for drawing. After his budding artistic career in the animation industry was shortend by the collapse of a syndicated cartoon programming, he decided to embark on a new career in the military. He´s the first G.I. Joe ever to combine two totally different specialities – reconnaissance and combat artistry – and make them work.

“The principle job of a scout is to bring back information. The more detailed the information, the better. Altitude can sneak up on an enemy installation, thoroughly observe it for a few days and not even be spotted. After he has gathered enough information, he quietly leaves his observation post to return to headquarters. Once there, he uses his recall abilities to sketch the installation in exact detail. He is so good that the Sky Patrol uses his sketches instead of maps because they´re that precise.”
