"There's no place where G.I. Joe can run or hide when I'm flying above them!"
WILD WEASEL learned his trade flying for COBRA operations in every hemisphere in which the evil organization conducts its corrupt business. His knowledge of close support aircraft ranges from jury-rigged civilian conversions to state-of-the-art flying weapons platforms. When the COBRA ground forces are engaged in battle, WILD WEASEL swoops in to take out the enemy's armored vehicles. Whatever craft he's flying, he makes the most of the plane's capabilities. As wild and unpredictable as his code name, he'll sometimes buzz his own troops just to cause them trouble. He cut his teeth in the bush wars of South America and Africa, and it is rumored that a mouth injury inflicted during a strafing run was the cause of the characteristic sibilance in his speech pattern.
Wild Weasel first encountered the Joe team when he was ordered by the Baroness to track down Cobra Commander. His partner was Firefly. Together they confronted several Joes in in the Florida swamps and dealt with Zartan.
Wild Weasel was called to sit upon the mock trial of Billy. The boy, the son of Cobra Commander, had tried to kill his own father.
Wild Weasel had a rivalry with the Skystriker pilot Ace. This rivalry began with one of the Rattler's earliest appearances, when Wild Weasel (and Co-Pilot/Gunner, Baroness) ambushed Ace (and co-pilot Lady Jaye), initiating a dog fight over suburban New Jersey.
Later, Wild Weasel lead a group of Python Patrol Conquest Fighters against a team of Joe members in the skies over the Central American country of Punta del Mucosa. He was shot down by the Joe pilot Dogfight. He survived and continues to work for Cobra until they seemingly disbanded.
In 2010, Wild Weasel flew in the Cobra attack that destroyed the Fort Hood Pit.
