Switch Gears

"That karate stuff is too complicated for me. I just keep punching with one hand until it gets tired. Then I switch to the other."

Switch Gears can handle anything that has tracks or bogie wheels, especially if it comes equipped with reactive armor and lots of offensive hardware. Although armored vehicles are his main thing, he has no reservations about slipping out of the escape hatch to find out what the opposition is up to. Although he is a qualified expert with Assault Rifles and Heavy Machine Guns, he would just as soon go one-on-one with his bare knuckles. Solidly build, immense strong, and blessed with an extremely high pain tolerance (He always refuses Novacaine at the Dentist), he makes a formidable opponent no matter what the choice of weaponry. The concept of giving up is totally alien to him.


Canonical/Pre-MUX/Theme History:

U.S. Army Sergeant Jerome T. Jivoin was born in Bogota, Columbia. he is a reserve member of the team. Switch Gears was on of the many Joes who participated in the conflict known as World War III.
