The Technohol 13 Alphabetical Character Roster: W
War Tiger: an elite Nicaraguan military officer, the War Tiger came into conflict with Spitfire when she tried to rescue a reporter he was supposedly holding captive. Little did she know that he had some sort of advanced, anti-MAX gear waiting for her! Availability:
Warriors of Thor (Typical): while many Warriors of Thor are perfectly mundane humans, lacking ascendant abilities of any stripe, a few are a bit more... special. Some of these carry high tech implements, and others wield actual clerical magic! Availability:
Warrior Woman: Julia Frieda Koenig Lohmer was a deviant Nazi torturer - at least, she was until she used a portion of the American Super-soldier Serum on herself. Reborn as the Warrior Woman, the terror she instills in others has been amplified to a global level! Availability:
the Warthog A.I.F.V.: a replacement for the Joe's old A.P.C., the Warthog Armored Infantry Fighting Vehicle fulfills much the same purpose, albiet in a smaller, mor heavily armred and armored capacity. This makes it more suitable for small, 'special missions' style operations and the like. The Warthog A.I.F.V. comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Wastriliths (Tanar'ri): the so-called Water Lords, wastriliths are solitary stalkers of the deep. They prefer solitude in their cold, undersea lairs, and cheerfully attack and devour anything dumb enough to intrude upon their (huge) territories. Availability:
the Water Moccasin: Cobra's Water Moccasin is a medium-sized air boat that's light and fast despite its heavy arms and armor. Cobra typically uses this vehicle on fresh water assaults, and it comes in very handy in swamps or river basins! Availability:
the Wave Crusher (Gi Joe): a small clandestine craft used by the Gi Joe team (though mainly Depth Charge), the Wave Crusher is a water sled that can be converted into a Cobra jet ski, allowing its operator to sneak into the ranks of those terrorists without them realizing it. The Wave Crusher comes in Classic and Saga styles!
the Weapons Transport Vehicle: this small vehicle has a specialized purpose in the Gi Joe arsenal: the safe delivery of heavy ordnance from one location to another. Though not of much direct combat use, it is nonetheless an important part of the team's vast equipment catalog. The Weapons Transport Vehicle comes in Classic and Saga styles!
the Weather Dominator: devised by Destro, the Weather Dominator allows Cobra to weaponize the weather itself! Though initially suffering range constraints, the addition of the GI Joe team's laser core extended the Weather Dominator's effects worldwide! Availability:
Wedge: despite his inexperience, Wedge's infectious spirit inspires others. He's thus drawn together the Build Team, more experienced warriors and engineers who look up to Wedge, both for direction and inspiration in the fight against evil! Availability:
Wendell Wherever: Wendell Kirks got his start by studying the hyperspatial powers of Charlie Chicanery. Using the knowledge he gained to build his own space craft, Wendell eventually became a high tech adventurer across space and time - for fun and profit! Availability:
Wet Down: Daniel grew up around the Norfolk naval grounds, and fell in love with all things Navy as a child. Naturally, he enlisted in said armed force as soon as possible, and not only excelled but was one of the youngest recruits to pass the S.E.A.L. training program! Wet Down comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Wet-Suit: loud, arrogant, and seething with attitude, Brian basically forced his way through Navy basic, and even his S.E.A.L. training. He then performed his saboteur duties with a gleeful passion, which got him a job on the Joe team - his destructive joy made him very good at his job! Wet-Suit comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Wheeljack: while he's officially the Autobots' chief engineer, they usually think of Wheeljack more as their resident mad scientist. Sure, he makes their lives better with his inventions eventually, but helping him work out their bugs can be lethal! Availability:
the Whirlwind Twin Battle Gun: this device is essentially a set of hard core, rotating 20mm gatling cannons paired together. Mounted on a reconfigurable wheel base, this weapon can fired either while being towed or when mounted in a stationary position. Availability:
White Out: Leonard was recruited onto the Joe team after the highly publicized rescue of twelve skiers buried in an avalanche. Enjoying skiing for a living after his publishing career tanked, Leonard began using his impressive skills against evildoers world-wide! Availability:
Whizzer: Robert Frank was bitten by a cobra one day, and would have died if not for his father. Knowing the mongoose was a deadly enemy of the cobra, he injected mongoose blood into his son, which inexplicably caused him to be reborn as the Whizzer! Availability:
WARS: the most antagonistic of the Spychangers, WARS is also one of the group's most daring warriors. Actively advocating war against the Predacons, WARS would like nothing better than to crush the Autobots' foes under his robotic boot-heel. Availability:
Wide Scope: Larry K. Kranseler is Wide Scope, one of the Gi Joe team's few S.W.A.T. and urban combat specialists. Despite the harrowing nature of Wide Scope's job, the man is unflappable, and only ever gets riled up when someone teases his dog, Lamont! Availability:
Wild Bill: William Hardy is one of the single most friendly people you'll ever meet, not to mention the greatest helicopter pilot youll ever know. He's crashed more aircraft than most pilots actually fly, but then he's also seen more combat than them, as well! Availability:
Wild Card: the military appreciates Eric's unparalleled destructive capability, they really do, it's just that they wish he could save it for the bad guys. Something about the man though, it causes everything he touches to bend, break, fall apart, or otherwise disintegrate. Seriously! Wild Card comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Wild Weasel: a self-made man bearing loyalty to no nation, Wild Weasel gleefully supports Cobra as long as the checks keep coming. Widely considered Cobra's best pilot, Wild Weasel is infamous for his seemingly supernatural mastery of the Rattler! Availability:
Wind Sheer: Wind Sheer is the opposite of Skyfire in character; while his fellow Decepticon aircraft is all business on missions, Wind Sheer boasts of his aerial superiority to the point of ridiculous excess, irking the ire of enemies and allies alike. Availability:
Windcharger: impulsive and impatient, Windcharger is physically incapable of standing still for any length of time. His inability to dawdle helps him make important decisions in a snap, which is rather important in the middle of a firefight. Availability:
Windchill: an avid hunter and ski mobile rider, Jim Steel was attempting to qualify for the U.S. Olympic Biathlon team when he was instead recruited onto the Gi Joe team by Blizzard himself. Tempted by promises of high-octane thrills, Jim has indeed seen his fair share of action ever since. Windchill comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Windmill: a former Army Flight Warrant School instructor, Edward Roth also doubled as a helicopter test pilot. It was in this capacity that he mastered the experimental Skystorm X-wing Chopper, and thus earned himself a place on the Gi Joe team - and one for his new ride, as well! Windmill comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Wing Po: a sea-going man of ill repute, Wing Po makes his living by seeking opportunities for riches on the high seas. Unlike his nemesis Dave Dean however, Wing Po doesn't have a problem with killing others for a shot at a choice bit of loot. Availability:
the Winter Soldier / Bucky / Captain America 11: though brainwashed by Soviet operatives into being their premier assassin, James 'Bucky' Barnes overcame their mental conditioning and fights for what he believes is right once more! Availability:
Without: thanks to the bumbling of two super-villains who were trying to give themselves ultimate power, Annah Harrington wound up getting it instead, when they inadvertently transformed her into a psionic omnimind, the one and only Without! Availability:
the Witness (Golden Age): after a botched suicide attempt, this former police officer was cursed by a higher power to become... the Witness! Final arbitrer of Justice in the world of mortal man, the Witness has seen terrible, terrible things over the years. Availability:
the Witness (New U): temporarily blinded by the White Event, Nelson Kohler was left brain-dead as a result of the subsequent automtotive accident. He perished shortly after, but his mind lives on, as his paranormal power allows it to exist without flesh! Availability:
the Wolverine: a durable armored missile carrier, the Wolverine is essentially a treaded missile launcher, carrying a bay of twelve surface to surface projectiles on its back. While slow, the Wolverine's armor makes up for it being an easy target. Availability:
John Wraith: a member of the original Weapon X program, John Wraith (if that's his real name) is a powerful teleporter, though hardly anybody knows this; he uses his mutant ability to and vanish when least expected - almost... wraith-like! Availability:
Wreckage: explosives expert and jungle warfare master, Dillon L. Moreno has trained countless Army operatives in a variety of combat techniques over the years. As a Gi Joe Tiger Force team member, he brings his expertise to many anti-Cobra operations! Availability:
