The Technohol 13 Alphabetical Character Roster: B

Made to hate airplanes after years of exposure to their loud noise and bright lights, he enlisted to get a job in the Army blowing the things up! Backblast comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Backfire: a nondescript guy before the White Event, George was a hard up loser. While the Event gave him impressive reflective powers, he's still a loser, endlessly perpetrating his raunchy personality upon the Web during its many paramilitary actions. Availability:
Backstop: though he's been run out of every sport he tried, from hockey to wrestling to boxing, Robert has finally found his home in the Gi Joe team. The man is brutally competitive, and has a habit of leaving broken opponents in his wake (and that's just his friends!) Backstop comes in Classic and Saga styles!

A modified, heavily armored Jeep, this lemon-colored off-road vehicle is great for leading the charge against any Cobra infantry in the field - no matter where they're hiding out! the Badger comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Doctor Lucian Ballad: assigned to the Remsen children after their parents died in a bombing, psychologist Lucian Ballad was amazed to find out that both were paranormals, and convinced them to use their abilities to help others. Availability:

In Tibet, he encountered a reclusive ninja master who helped forge him into a weapon that could decide his own destiny. And Robert has since decided to become a Gi Joe ninja! Banzai comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Bar-lgura (Tanar'ri): strong resembling conventional orangutans, bar-lgura aren't much smarter than those mundane creatures. Of course, normal animals don't bear an arsenal of demonic powers, much less such sullen, blinding blinding rage...! Availability:
Barbecue: thrill-seeker and all around party animal, Gabriel became a fire fighter for the sheer fun of it - not to mention the ability to chop things down with an axe on the job. The only dedicated fire fighter on the Gi Joe team, he tends to be placed on missions with the flamethrower experts... Barbecue comes in Classic and Saga styles!

the Baroness: after her brother was seemingly killed by an American soldier, the girl who would become the Baroness was consumed with a need for vengeance, and her foray into international terrorism ultimately led to an association with Cobra. Availability:
the Barracuda: an incredibly small vehicle, the Barracuda is in effect a one man submarine.

The Barracuda comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Barrel Roll: Dwight E. Stall comes from a family with a long tradition of military service. He is the first of three siblings to complete the Gi Joe training course, and has proven to be the most capable Joe in his family (save where his brother Blackout beats him in sheer depravity). Barrel Roll comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Barricade: an urban combat expert by trade, Phillip was trained long and hard in his art - which made joining the Gi Joe team almost easy for him. A late comer to the group, he nonetheless works hard to prove his mettle - and to protect his fellow Joes when he leads them into a hostile city...! Barricade comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Louis 'Treetop' Barrington: this somewhat shady man was a Huey pilot doing covert op troop insertions / extractions during Vietnam, but resorted to taking any job from the highest bidder afterwards - until Mark Hazzard helped him to see the light. Availability:

the Battle Copter (Cobra): after the Gi Joe team developed small, man-portable helicopter vehicles to provide emergency aerial capability in a pinch, Cobra decided to get in on that action, and 'appropriated' a few examples of their prototype rides. The result is, of course, the Cobra Battle Copter! Comes in Classic and Saga styles!
the Battle Copter (Gi Joe): while the Air Commandos can get somewhere in a hurry and do so in a quiet manner, they're admittedly at the mercy of the weather somewhat. Keeping this in mind, the Gi Joe team built a powered alternative to their gliders, in the form of this backpack helicopter! the Battle Copter comes in Classic and Saga styles!
the Battle Wagon: a large offensive vehicle, the Battle Wagon lives up to its name. It looks like a giant, oversized pickup truck with a missile launcher mounted where the bed should be. And, well, with laser guns and a strange cab with a freaky grille. But you know. the Battle Wagon comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Bazooka: a former tank jockey until his sudden epiphany about untrained yahoos immobilizing million dollar hardware with two hundred dollar handheld rockets, Bazooka instead became a missile specialist himself.

Beach-Head: one of the hardest, meanest Rangers ever to come out of Fort Benning, Wayne is a perfect addition to the Gi Joe team, as his never-ending quest for personal perfection tends to rub off on others - even if it does so in a somewhat abrasive fashion...!

Big Ben: an elite British S.A.S. soldier, David is just as competent as your average American Special Forces trooper. Though trained differently, he's just as good as his fellow Joes are in the eradication of Cobra forces, no matter what the nefarious terrorists are up to...! Big Ben comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Big Brawler: with his dual specialty in Army intelligence and jungle survival, Brian proved more than effective at rooting out jungle-based terrorists. This made him an excellent fit for the Gi Joe team, as Cobra has a tendency to hide their bases in the thickest, nastiest jungles they can find! Big Brawler comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Big Lob: a true basketball fan that may or may not have played in a professional capacity before enlisting, Big Lob showed he was a true athlete upon hitting basic training.

Blast-Off: the single greatest fire fighter the state of Missouri ever knew, Jeffrey D.

Blizzard: Gregory is tough because he has to be, for he knows that with his job as a cold weather soldier - much less the instructor of other like soldiers - he will become a statistic if he goes easy on himself... and his charges will as well, if he goes easy on them. Blizzard comes in Classic and Saga styles!
the Blockbuster: a large 6WD vehicle, the Blockbuster is designed primarily for Arctic combat, but can be deployed in just about any environment (though its white paint job may hinder that some).

Blocker: after driving a cab in Boston for several years, David enlisted in the Army in order to get a ride with which he could shoot back at the opposition.

Blowtorch: Timothy joined the Army to master the most ancient weapon: fire! Though he wields the stuff like a demon in battle, Timothy is probably the biggest proponent of fire safety on earth, knowing full well what it's capable of. Availability:
Bludgeon: something of a schemer, Bludgeon is the rare, grandiose sort of villain who can back up his talk with muscle. He's strong and tough on top of his mental brawn, and had he not joined up with Scourge, he'd have founded the Destructicons himself! Availability:
Blue Blade: riding away from his destitute farm during the Dust Bowl, Roy Chambers decied to become rich and famous - no matter the cost. And how else to do this than do what everyone else was of late: donning an ostentatious costume and doing good deeds! Availability:

the Brain-wave Scanner: Doctor Venom's single greatest invention, this device gives Cobra access to the very minds of others! Capable of probing or controlling minds, use of the Scanner is itself torture, as it inflicts undue agony while operational. Availability:
Brainrave: a telepath with a severe electronica fetish, Comyna is a happy go lucky adventurer whether or not she's currently working with Mindwatch. She's as likely to go clubbing as she is stomping on Mindwatch's enemies, mind you. Availability:
the Brawler: a large, self-propelled gun, the Brawler's main feature is its' 77mm Howitzer cannon.

It really lives up to its name! the Brawler comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Brawn: a braggart boastful about his sheer physical power, Brawn is more than ready to back up his claims with results. While he's smaller than most Autobots, Brawn's definitely one of the strongest and toughest brawlers in that group's roster! Availability:
