The Technohol 13 Alphabetical Character Roster: S
Salvo (Gi Joe): David is quite like to Rampart, having joined the military to indulge in his favorite hobby. The difference is that while Rampart blows things up as a part of his love for computerized gaming action, David prefers a more 'low tech' approach! Availability:
Salvo (New U): Michael Crawley is a stereotypical nerd, more interested in science than in people. When the White Event 'blessed' him with the ability to blow things up with his mind, his lack of social skills hindered his ability to mesh with fellow paranormals. Availability:
Saxon St. John: an insane genius in the employ of the Club, Saxon had developed advanced, cybernetic armor paradigm. Of course, since he could find no volunteers to undergo the surgery to tie them to the armor, Saxon had to improvise... Availability:
Satan's Little Elf: an ill-tempered lout, the pixie known only as Satan's Little Elf has learned how to grow himself to about half a normal human's size, a trick he uses to engage in a petty and relentless crime spree posing as one of Santa's little helpers. Availability:
Scar-face: one of Cobra's elite officers, Scar-face has extensive espionage experience, which helped himo get far in Cobra's hierarchy. Through no fault of his own, however, he wound up getting on Cobra's bad side, and paid the price for his allegiance! Availability:
Scarlett: having trained as a martial artist since she was nine years old, and then being put through more 'dirty tricks' training in the Army, Shana's combat prowess and ability to gain intelligence on various Cobra operations is second to none! Availability:
Scavenger (RiD): once one of countless Vehicon drones built by Megatron, this mechanoid was brought back in time by Optimus Primal, and given an all new Spark by the Matrix. He now has free will, but Scavenger is still driven by his primary, destructive purpose. Availability:
Sci-Fi: Seymour excels as a laser operator in that he does everything slow; no matter how hard you try, you simply can't get the man to hurry anything along. Of course that's what you want in someone who has to focus a beam of light onto a target miles away... Sci-Fi comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Scoop: with his degrees in electrical engineering and journalism, Leonard Michaels could've easily become a member of any network news team he wished to. However, he enlisted in the Army to use his skills to get at the 'real' stories out there, and documents them alongside the Gi Joe team! Scoop comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Scourge (RiD): most powerful of the Decepticons save for Galvatron himself, Scourge was originally an Autobot who was turned to evil, thanks to the power of Megatron's diabolical Spark. Of course, he gained ambition along with Megatron's evil, so watch out! Availability:
Scrap-Iron: originally just an employee of Destro's MARS corporation, Scrap-Iron joined Cobra in an effort to field test his latest armament designs. The never-ending opportunities to destroy the imperfect are simply a fringe benefit of the job! Availability:
Scrunch: after encountering two insane paranormals, Mr. Lovejoy was himself swept up in their mania. Of course the fact that his own powers made him incredibly dangerous when subject to his new friends' emotion-controlling abilities was exploited by them at times... Availability:
Scuzz: abused child and general hooligan Dennis Cuzinski was on the fast track to a life of crime when the White Event cursed him by making all of his bodily fluids acidic. Naturally, this didn't help the disposition of 'Scuzz' a bit! Availability:
Seamus Shish Kebab: after a chance encounter with a particularly tough and inquisitive human, Seamus Shish Kebab decided to learn more about them, and now wanders the highways and byways of the world while meeting (and occasionally pranking) them! Availability:
Secundus (Modron): the very existence of the four secundus is something few are aware of, as they only associate with the nine tertians below them - and Primus itself. Each secundus oversees four quartons (and thus, sixteen of Regulus' cogs). Availability:
Sedara: a young Mujahedin warrior with the parability of teleportation, Sedara Bakut used it to devastating effect against the Soviets. After her own father betrayed her to the enemy, she decided she was done with that war, joining Psi-force instead. Availability:
Seņor Surly: after a life of abandonment and betrayal, lesser men would've descended into abject self-pity and despair. Enrique Gutierrez did no such thing however, instead becoming a college student and vigilante, and later a member of the Crazy Hate! Availability:
Septons (Modron): the forty nine septons primarily serve as messengers, relaying commands between hextons and octons. However, several septons also toil within the tower of Primus, where they perform special duties as assigned by the hextons. Availability:
Sgt. Misha: drawn from the ranks of the Soviet Union's elite Spetsnaz units, Sgt. Misha was recruited onto the Oktober Guard after most of the original team met its demise. Misha is very well-read, and often waxes philosophical on the battle field. Availability:
Sgt. Slaughter: a veritable force of nature, the Sarge was born on Parris Island, and raised to become about as tough and as mean as is humanly possibly - a perfect Marine! The ultimate drill instructor, the Sarge is who the Joes rely upon to keep themselves on their toes! Sgt. Slaughter comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Serpentor: built from the genetic remnants of earth's greatest military geniuses long past (and a few more, recent ingredients), the being known only as Serpentor was naturally inclined to take command of Cobra for himself, and in time, that's just what this charismatic conqueror did! Serpentor comes in Classic and Saga styles!
the Seven Dimensional Man: Horace Bison was one of Mindwatch's most arrogant - yet most effective - field operatives. His hubris ultimately got him booted from the group when he used his powers on a fellow Mindwatcher for personal gain. Availability:
Shamash: the god of the sun, Shamash illuminates the earth on his daily journey across the sky. From his vantage point over all, Shamash can see the wrongs committed by man, which helps him to judge both truth and justice when necessary. Availability:
the Shark: instead of using his revolutionary submersible technology to aid humanity, Stephen Morgan wielded it as the Shark, a dread undersea pirate, one whose crimes against the seven seas were only halted by Electro: Marvel of the Age! Availability:
the Shark 9000: Cutter's latest ride is smaller than his original, but has similar capabilities. The Shark 9000 is a heavy duty patrol boat armed with a water cannon and a dual torpedo launcher, which can pursue an opponent on the water or - if necessary - on land for short periods! The Shark 9000 comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Derek Shiningstar: a close friend of Emmett Proudhawk's, Derek entered government service with him. Derek subsequently sold Emmett and his work out to the highest bidder to secure a piece of the psi pie for himself, which would ultiamtely prove his undoing. Availability:
Shivowtnoeh (Animal): formerly a Russian high school student, the White Event was not kind to Irina Mityushova. Transformed into a slavering, bestial terror, Irina has slowly, but increasingly lost her tenuous grip on her remaining humanity. Availability:
Shockwave (Gi Joe): showing true bravery as a member of the Detroit S.W.A.T. team, Jason Faria wanted to use his skills for even more good, and applied for a position on the Gi Joe team as a result. Being accepted, he was trained up in the S.O.P. and made one of the Gi Joe team's experts in urban combat! Shockwave comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Shockwave (New U): Kathy Ling was a spoiled rich girl who felt like a freak after developing her parability. Hating it at first, Kathy eventually grew to revel in her telekinetic might when she'd had enough of being hounded by various interests intent on using her. Availability:
Shooter: leading a spiritual and charitable life outside of the military, few would guess at SFC Jodie Craig's actual Army job. A highly decorated sniper, she was one of the original members of the GI Joe team - even if they didn't even know it! Availability:
Short-Fuze: coming from two previous generations of Army guys, it was only natural that Eric would himself enlist. His natural mathematical capabilities made him a demon with a mortar, a skill which made him a candidate for the new GI Joe team! Availability:
Shrage: a former East German infantryman, Shrage was drawn into the Oktober Guard thanks to his spotless record and unique personality profile. While not big on things like 'words' or 'talking', Shrage definitely says what he means as a man of action! Availability:
Side Burn: youngest of the Autobot Brothers, Side Burn is rambunctious, enthusiastic, and powerful. He's also impulsive, not to mention recklessly obsessive about red sports cars, a bizarre fetish that has gotten him into trouble on many occasions. Availability:
Side Swipe (RiD): crude and blunt, Side Swipe is a curious member of the Autobot team; while he has a good heart, he's more aggressive than most of his opponents. When not fighting, he relieves his combative urges by competing in demolition derbies...! Availability:
Sideswipe (G1): about as competent in a scrap as is his fraternal twin brother, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe is a lot more likable. Having a tendency to bend the rules far beyond their stated intention, Sideswipe is known for getting results unconventionally. Availability:
Sideswipe (Gi Joe): Andrew always wanted to help others, ever since he was a child, and wound up becoming a doctor in time. He joined the Army to become a field medic after he'd graduated from medical school, and quickly became one of the Army's most respected medical personnel! Sideswipe comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Sidetrack: after a particularly adventurous uncle took him on safari as a wee youth, Sean found he could no longer enjoy urban environs. He began camping and hiking shortly thereafter, eventually joining the Army (and later, the Gi Joe team) as an all-terrain survival specialist! Sidetrack comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Sidetrack 2: loud and belligerent, John started out as a pro wrestler, but felt something was missing. Leaving his job to enlist in the Army, he found what he was looking for: armed conflict! His enthusiasm for mayhem naturally led this Ranger to an eventual Gi Joe assignment... Sidetrack 2 comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Sideways: an ultra-efficient Autobot scout, Sideways was summoned to earth to help the Autobots there locate the mighty Fortress Maximus, who (though immensely large) was continually eluding the Autobots and the Decepticons who wished to control him! Availability:
Silhouette: an extraplanar expatriate, the enigmatic Silhouette has written several works of 'fiction' based on her real life adventures. The fans of her work have made her plenty of money, and quite famous, which only helps her to adventure more! Availability:
Sillatochca (Force Point): though he abhors violence, Leonid Vishnevesky was forced by the KGB into joining the Red Sun combat team after his parability became known to them - though his peaceful ways were a constant thorn in their side. Availability:
the Silver Mirage: this small, fast vehicle is a replacement for the venerable yet still effective R.A.M. The hue of its namesake, the Silver Mirage is a lightweight motorcycle with a heavily armed side car, and is equipped with four tiny missiles it can use to total small vehicles. The Silver Mirage comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Silver Scorpion: secretary Betty Barlow made a heroic costume for a ball one night, and wound up using it as an real crime fighter: the Silver Scorpion. While a competent martial artist, she eventually added a silvery exoskeleton to her arsenal! Availability:
Sir Tophat: after disappearing in order to seek his Purpose in life, Barnaby Clay was lost to human memory. He resurfaced years later as the one and only Sir Tophat, Voodoo Houngan extraordinare, a powerful mage determined to protect America from harm! Availability:
Six-fingered Tommy: an apparent mutant since birth, Tommy had been treated badly by his peers in school. Later, Tommy's peers became his fellow D.A.A. vigilantes, who not only don't beat him up for being different, but appreciate his uniqueness! Availability:
Skid-Z: like Side Burn, Skid-Z is built for speed. Furthermore, he possesses incredibly accurate reflexes that allow him to handle better than any other Autobot out there, making him a great scout - when he's not obsessively participating in races... Availability:
Skidmark: Cyril seems a perfectly tempered young man with an uncanny attention for detail and propriety - at least, until you put him behind the wheel of a vehicle - any vehicle. That's when you meat the real Cyril, and learn just why he received his curious code name! Skidmark comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Skids: though something of a scatterbrain and definitely slower than his fellows, Skids is definitely a valued member of the Autobot team. This because, in his role as their theoretician, he's always got some data useful against the Decepticons! Availability:
the Skipper: a friend of Emmett Proudhawk and ex-wife of Colby Shaw, it was inevitable that the Skipper became involved in the lives of Proudhawk's psionic charges. Though friendly to them at first, his attitude changed after they got Colby killed. Availability:
the Sky Hawk: handy when standard air support and cover simply isn't practical and/or possible, the Sky Hawk is a small, lightweight vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft that can easily help the Joes attain air superiority! Availability:
the Sky Raven: a super sonic aircraft built by Cobra but captured by the Gi Joe team, the Sky Raven has been retrofitted with the Sky Patrol's new radar invisibility tech, and made even harder to detect than before! The star of their equipment roster, it can spy with ease - and fight like a fiend! The Sky Raven comes in Classic and Saga styles!
the Sky Sweeper: Knockdown's ride is an advanced anti-aircraft vehicle, with an optional stand-alone sentry post that can be installed either by itself or as a part of the Battle Force 2000's Future Fortress. It also lets Knockdown deal with his phobic aversion to aircraft of all kinds... Knockdown's Sky Sweeper comes in Classic and Saga styles!
the Sky Sweeper Jet: something of a miniature stealth bomber, the Sky Sweeper Jet is a small, flying-wing style aircraft built for stealth. Instead of dropping bombs however, it can deploy a micro-jet with Cobra markings in order to infiltrate its air force! Availability:
Sky-Byte: Sky-Byte is both incredibly intelligent and incompetent at the same time, being simultaneously a first-rate sycophant and a neurotic wreck. One should never underestimate him though, for Sky-Byte's not Megatron's right hand 'bot for nothing! Availability:
Skybreaker: an arms smuggler before the White Event, James acquired the ability to fly shortly thereafter, and that - combined with his underworld skills - made him an excellent choice to assist the Medusa Web in its clandestine operations. Availability:
Skydive: leader of the Sky Patrol, Lynton goes out of his way to push them to be 'all they can be', wanting to prepare his men for the worst they may encounter in the field, far away from support. This is, of course, when he's not being dropped off in the wilds with only a knife in hand... Skydive comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Skyfire: one of two fighter jets in Megatron's employ, Skyfire finds that he generally has Autobots at a disadvantage in combat, since most of them couldn't fly at first. Efficient and deadly, Skyfire doesn't waste time with witty banter. Availability:
Skymate: though he isn't the glider fan that Cloudburst is, Daniel T. Toner makes use of the man's works as a high flying, silent weapons combatant. He hails from the Australian S.A.S., and lends his skills to the Gi Joe team in their fight against Cobra's thuggery! Skymate comes in Classic and Saga styles!
the Skystorm X-wing Chopper: a revolutionary prototype, the Skystorm is a stopped-rotor aircraft, meaning it can take off and land like a helicopter, but its rotor can stop in mid-flight to let its jet turbines take over - which means it's a helicopter and a fighter jet at the same time! The Skystorm comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Skystriker: Alexander Russo, the Gi Joe pilot known as Skystriker, was born to fly. His father ran a Maryland Air Force base, and he became a fighter pilot himself after watching them flying over head for so long. He's so good the Joes snatched him up for their elite Tiger Force unit! Skystriker comes in Classic and Saga styles!
the Skystriker: GI Joe's first high-speed combat aircraft is a modified Grumman F-14 Tomcat. This swing-wing, super-sonic fighter jet was adopted by the Joe team after Cobra upped the ante, so to speak, when using their own high speed craft in terrorist operations. Availability:
Skywarp: Skywarp excels in the Decepticon ranks thanks to his unique ability to teleport short distances. Of course, being that he's not too creative, he often resorts to performing violent, yet juvenile pranks on others with this power. Availability:
the Slaggregator: an unrepentant burglar, the earth-native dwarf known to the authorities as the Slaggregator is their worst headache ever. There seems almost no treasure safe from his depredations, and the man scoffs at the very idea of jails! Availability:
Slapper: a Predacon who can transform into an oversized horny toad, Slapper is rather well-equipped for amphibious operations. Slapper enjoys scrapping with the Autobots, at least when he's not sampling all of our planet's beers...! Availability:
the Sledgehammer: most often operated by Heavy Duty, the Sledgehammer is basically a delivery system for a dual missile launcher. It can be configured in a treaded, off-road mode or a wheeled configuration for use on more level terrain. Availability:
Slipstream: computer hacker and video game addict extraordinare, Gregory also developed a love of flying as a youth. As airplanes became more computerized, this only helped Gregory, as all of his loves converged into a single whole, and he proved more than adept with most futuristic aircraft. Slipstream comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Slow Jim: an Atlantean altered by toxic goo at birth, Slow Jim was found and ultimately sold to a circus to serve as its greatest freak. Eventually breaking free, he worked as a mercenary before finally joining the mysterious Variety Show! Availability:
the Slugger: the Slugger is an exceptionally large (175 mm) cannon mounted on top of a big ol'diesel engine. Weighing in at around 29 tons, this massive hunk of metal is one of the most powerful artillery pieces in the Joe arsenal! Availability:
Slythor: the bizarre alien creature known only as Slythor is one of the Manimals, expatriates of the Lunartix Empire that have found themselves in our own Milky Way galaxy. This, of course, means that Slythor drops by earth to cause mayhem every once in a while... Slythor comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Smokejumper: an amazing tactician, the high-flying Smokejumper is also rather light on armament. Since he's so focused on doing his job, the high-ups thought it a good idea to team him with the heavily armed, if not too bright Dreadwind. Oddly, this worked. Availability:
the Smoke Screen Transport: the aptly named Smoke Screen Transport looks like a combat truck, but is in fact a delivery mechanism for a small, vectored thrust spy craft that it houses. When in position, its drivers can launch the craft to spy on Cobra! Availability:
Snake-Eyes: a singularly mysterious man, the commando known only as Snake-Eyes has experienced nothing but tragedy in his life. However, he's persevered through the years, and become a true force to be reckoned with - as would any other ninja master! Availability:
Sneak Peek: growing up with a love of nature in eerie Bangor, Maine, Owen King joined the Army as soon as he could. Using his wilderness skills to become a fully qualified Army Ranger, Owen has since gone on to become one of the Gi Joe team's greatest reconnaissance operatives! Sneak Peek comes in Classic and Saga styles!
the Snow Cat: the Snow Cat can traverse the nastiest of icy terrain thanks to its half track design, in even the coldest of Katabatic winds. Armed with surface to surface / air missiles and ground based 'ski torpedoes', the Snow Cat commands winter battles. Availability:
Snow Job: an olympic contender, Harlan decided best training that he could get, for cheap, could only come from of the Army. Expecting him to compete, you can imagine how unhappy the military was when he instead accepted a job with GI Joe! Availability:
Snow Storm: originally a Cuban native, Guillermo works in about the last place you'd expect him to - the polar ice caps! He hates the cold, but he wound up being so darn good at hunting Vipers in the snow and ice that the Joes talked him into keeping at it! Snow Storm comes in Classic and Saga styles!
the Solder Monkey: though he looks like a primitive brute, the degenerate known as Bolivar Tweed is cursed with a super human intellect. Pushed to the edge by humanity's rejection of his simian aspect, Tweed intends to destroy them all - as the Solder Monkey! Availability:
Soundwave: the sadistic Soundwave seemingly hears all. Cementing his place as Megatron's right-hand 'bot thanks to habitually blackmailing his fellow Decepticons, Soundwave is despised by just about all of them, save for his many cassette minions. Availability:
the Space Boy: built by Wendell Wherever and Little-Spore-Resting-On-The-Squishy-Lakefront, the Space Boy is a quirky vehicle that can traverse space and time. They built several copies of the thing, since the duo leaves them all over the place. Availability:
Space Shot: an inexplicable interstellar freighter pilot with a stubborn streak a mile wide, George A. Roberts was recruited onto the Gi Joe team despite the activities of his mysterious benefactors. He's been put to good use since the day he survived the Gi Joe entrance exam! Space Shot comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Sparks: Alex Verdi was General Flagg's assistant and a liaison between GI Joe and the rest of the military - at least until the General's death. He retired for a time, but came back when General Colton personally requested his return! Availability:
Spasma: Spasma is one of the single most volatile Manimals of them all, particularly where humans are concerned. He just doesn't like the hairless apes one bit - and it's all Duke's fault! Whenever he makes his way to earth, watch out - he might have you for lunch! Spasma comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Spearhead & Max: an incredibly likable and persuasive insurance salesman, Peter Millman gave all that up to join the Army, possibly because he felt guilty about fleecing so many people of their hard-earned money. He proved just as charismatic in the military, and makes a great leader! Spearhead & Max come in Classic and Saga styles!
Spider Queen: wanting vengeance for her husband's murder so badly that she hooked up with several traitors to get it, Sharon Kane's life has taken several turns for the worse. This is why she's descended into a life of crime upon getting out of prison. Availability:
Spirit: a psychologist and Vietnam veteran, Charlie is an expert woodsman that brings considerable talent to GI Joe. His fellows fail to understand him now and then, but they respect his skill and his ability to keep them alive! Availability:
The Spirit of '76 / Captain America 3: the patriotic William Naslund became a costumed vigilante known as the Spirit of '76. After his hero's untimely demise, William was chosen by the United States government to fill Captain America's shoes! Availability:
Spitfire: given an emergency transfusion by the Human Torch after she was bitten by the vampiric Baron Blood, Lady Jacqueline Falsworth was forever changed, the two artificial influences within transforming her into the startling Spitfire! Availability:
the Split Fire: essentially a weaponized pickup truck, the Split Fire is a sight to behold. It's as if someone crammed as much armament into one as is physically possible, while still retaining the available cargo space and mobility they're so famous for! Availability:
Spotty: a would-be villain, the thug known as Spotty was a two bit hood before the White Event, and got even worse once he gained a horrific appearance and subtle illusion generating powers. He tends to perpetrate various crimes with his pal, Pinhead. Availability:
Stalker: though he started out as an urban warlord in Detroit, Lonzo cleaned up his act and joined the Army, quickly becoming one of its very best operatives. A qualified Ranger, helicopter pilot, and field medic, Stalker is an invaluable GI Joe operative! Availability:
the Star Brand: the Star Brand is an artifact of infinite power, one which requires a sentient being to contain and command its energies. Taking the form of a star-shaped tattoo, the Star Brand can be moved about one's body, or transferred to another, at will. Availability:
the Star Brigade Armor: as they began their ascent into space in pursuit of Cobra terrorists, the Gi Joe team developed basic space combat armor for use by its nascent Star Brigade team. These suits are powerful, versatile, and proof against the extremes of vacuum! The Star Brigade Armor comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Starduster: originally a circus acrobat, Edward was recruited onto the Gi Joe team when Duke saw his act and thought it'd be even better with a jet pack. Somehow convincing Edward of this logic, Duke got him onto the team, where he's been wowing his fellows in the air ever since! Starduster comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Starscream: skilled, powerful, and (in his own mind) dashing, Starscream feels that he would be a better choice to lead the Decepticons to victory. And, ambitious to a fault, Starscream continually plots and schemes to seize control from Megatron. Availability:
Static Line: an expert in both demolitions and aircraft maintenance, Wallace is great at not only making sure the Sky Patrol's gear gets them to missions, but in making sure that enemy explosives don't go off in the team's face once they've been deployed into the field from above! Static Line is available in Classic and Saga styles!
Steam-roller: Averill has always enjoyed driving the big rigs, from huge cargo cranes on the Great Lakes to earth movers in the Appalachian strip mines. Of course, he joined the Army to get at their immense rides, a career path that put him behind the wheel of the Mobile Command Center! Steam-roller comes in Classic and Saga styles!
the Steel Brigade: the Gi Joe team excels in all areas, but sometimes it comes in handy to have a local angle on domestic activities. When the Joes need such a specialist, they make a call to the Steel Brigade, their reservists and experts in local matters while active in the U.S.A.! Steel Brigadiers comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Steel Hawk: terrorist, mercenary, and mass murderer, this dangerous man is one of the Club's elite enforcers. Though he claims to do what he does to liberate his country, Arun Bahkti enjoys the devastation left in his wake far, far too much. Availability:
Steeler: Ralph has an affinity for large, mechanized vehicles, and loves blowing things up. Once he passed the unbelievably tough GI Joe entrance exam, Ralph served on the team with distinction, having a proper outlet for both of his predilections. Availability:
the Stellar Stiletto: the Stiletto is Cobra's first mass-produced vehicle to reach an all new territory: outer space! While they've wielded various shuttle-like craft in the past, Cobra designed this with space combat in mind - and it works okay in the atmosphere, too! the Stellar Stiletto comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Sticks McLellan: a priestess of Nike with a predilection for extreme violence, Danielle McLellan was chosen by Mike 013 to be one of his special investigators of the bizarre - even if, more than anything, she smashes her way through most crises. Availability:

Stormavik: a Moscow native, Stormavik was raised in an environment brimming with patriotic imagery, and grew up as a highly motivated patriot as a result. This has allowed him to excel in the Soviet military, which easily earned him a place in the Guard! Availability:
the Storm Eagle: the latest in a long line of experimental Gi Joe fighter jets, the Storm Eagle is advanced in both aeronautics and offensive intent. It primarily makes use of a high-power laser cannon to down enemy jets, along with (of course) a small brace of missiles. The Storm Eagle comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Storm Jet: having quite a temper, the aptly named Storm Jet is nonetheless a professional, taking his responsibility as the Autobots' aerial support on earth very seriously. He likes putting his foes in their place, but doesn't go nuts doing it...! Availability:
Storm Shadow: Tommy Arashikage, Cobra's greatest ninja, didn't originally start out with evil aims. Thanks to the machinations of Cobra Commander, however, he was swept into a life of crime and terrorism, one that continually comes back to haunt him! Availability:
the SDI Laser Emitter: this experimental weapon was, obviously, a laser emitting device developed by Krotze International for the Department of Defense's Strategic Defense Initiative - you know, Reagan's whole 'Star Wars' concept. Availability:
the S.L.A.M.: the Strategic Long-range Artillery Machine (or as you may have guessed, the S.L.A.M.) is a self-propelled weapon of immense destructive potential. It has the same firepower as an Armadillo mini-tank while being even smaller - and is loaded up with missiles, to boot! the S.L.A.M. comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Stretcher: a former Olympic weight lifter, Thomas found he needed a new calling - and source of income - after the games were over. The Army proved good for both, and proved himself as a field medic time and again in a N.A.T.O. unit, his efforts eventually earning his place on the Gi Joe team. Stretcher comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Strongman: Percy van Norton worked hard to acquire vast sums of wealth, in order to turn the tables on his his bullying tormentors. When his money gained him a shot at a miracle drug cocktail, Percy took it, becoming incredibly strong - and dim! Availability:
Agent Dale Sturm, FBI: a Quantico, Virginia FBI academy graduate, Dale Sturm quickly ascended to a top position in the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Possessing incredible physical and mental skill, he made short work of the nation's criminals. Availability:
Sub-Zero: Mark's an angry man. He just enjoys being mean to his fellow humans. As such, when he joined the Army he felt the need to become a cold weather specialist because, since he hates the cold, it only serves to make him angry all the time. The trick is getting him to save all that bile for Cobra... Sub-Zero comes in Classic and Saga styles!
the SHARC: a mainstay of the GI Joe naval arsenal for over twenty years, the SHARC - or Submersible High-Speed Attack and Reconnaissance Craft - is a vehicle ahead of its time, in that it is a submarine that can take to the air at a moment's notice! Availability:
Succubi (Tanar'ri): eerily beautiful seductresses, succubi journey forth from the Abyss to exploit the dark passions of mortals. Succubi feed upon their energies directly, or often just abduct them to the Abyss to serve as slaves - or worse, food. Availability:
Suicide: running back for the New York Smashers, Thomas 'Suicide' Smythe is one of Jack Magniconte's many pals that helped him to form Kickers, Inc. Something of a practical joker, the young-at-heart Suicide is mostly in it for the adventure. Availability:
Sunstreaker: something of an egotistical sociopath, Sunstreaker's a violent Transformer you'd generally expect to be a Decepticon. He's on the other side of the Cybertronian civil war however, and thus fights the good fight alongside the Autobots. Availability:
Super Trooper: Paul got into West Point the hard way - right out of Basic. Having made his way in despite the odds against him, Paul then became the top graduate of a brand new, covert ops school that combines advanced technical ability and a curious dose of public relations skills. Super Trooper comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Sure Fire: though he grew up in abject poverty in an urban crime zone, David made it a point to escape the blight he was trapped within - legally. Having done this, he then became a member of the L.A.P.D., the F.B.I. - and then the exclusive Gi Joe team, his diligence finally paying off...! Sure Fire comes in Classic and Saga styles!
SEA Legs: submersible vehicles designed to be controlled by a singular operator, the SEA (Surprise, Engage, and Attack) Legs can transform into walkers to assault targets on land - which makes them brilliant for ambushes, if not for extended combat missions. Availability:
the Swampmasher: a small, twelve wheeled vehicle (having three wheels in place of a regular tire), the Swampmasher is designed to navigate thick and muddy terrain. It doesn't drive so much as almost 'paddle' through most muddy ground, doing so at a slow yet reliable pace. The Swampmasher comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Jenny Swensen (before the Pitt): the first Spitfire, Professor Jenny Swensen became an armored heroine after recovering her late father's MAX suit from evildoers. After this, Jenny began to help the government battle the proliferation of MAX gear. Availability:
Jenny Swensen (after the Pitt): after her exposure to Pitt-Juice, Jenny Swensen was forever altered. This mutagenic compound rendered her paranormal, and she developed an organic steel skin to replace the MAX armor she'd lost to the government. Availability:
the Swinging Sultan: a would-be bounty hunter with a robot fetish, Ed volunteered to be one of the Electronicists' League's first cyborg guinea pigs, and miracuously survived. Donning a 'sultan' costume, he then began to make quite a name for himself! Availability:
Switch Gears: incredibly strong in both mind and body, Jerome is a perfect addition to the Gi Joe team. Skilled enough to obliterate opponents with a tank or sneak into their headquarters to grab new intelligence, this tenacious guy is a force to be reckoned with! Switch Gears comes in Classic and Saga styles!
the Synergy Cyborgs: developed by Saxon St. John, this system of integrated armor is a generation of robotics beyond MAX technology: cybernetic armor. Of course, as it requires a permanent graft to a living body to function, Saxon's upgrades had few volunteers. Availability:
Synthetic Sapien: having always felt he was meant to be more than human, Edgar Lockwood has dreamed of becoming a robot all his life. Thanks to the encouragement of his Anthropist 'friends', he's finally found the motivation to make this happen! Availability:
Syphon: Thomas Boyd was a damaged youth from a bizarre household, one that only grew wierder after he accidentally killed his sister. When his powers manifested, he was shaped into a killer by Derek Shiningstar, but eventually struck out on his own. Availability:
the System: Neutralizer - Armored Kloaking Equipment: designed and built by Doctor Venom, these battlesuits make an ordinary infantryman as powerful as a tank. Additionally, Brainwave Scanner components in the armor allow a remote operator to seize control of its pilot. Availability:
