G.I. Joe


Spy Troops

A Special Weapons and Tactical specialist might seem redundant in a unit as elite as the G.I. JOE team, but not if you consider the degree to which his skills are specialized. If there is a locked door behind which there are an unknown number of armed hostile individuals and innocent civilians, it is up to WIDE SCOPE to kick the door down and let his canine go in first. Then he must assess the situation, choose an appropriate course of action, and carry it out, all in the split second between kicking the door down and firing the first hostile shot.

WIDE SCOPE is an extremely mellow, easy-going type of guy. He never seems to get excited about anything, maintaining a consistent, level attitude through the most disturbing and frightening situations. However, the one thing he is extremely sensitive about is his K-9 partner, Lamont, to whom he has bonded intensely and will never leave his side.

Are you saying my dog has a sissy name? What's so sissy about Lamont? Well? I'm waiting.
