Soft talking, slow walking, easy-going, and hard-riding, WILD BILL might have been a cavalry trooper, a real horse-soldier in another age. These days, the horse of a cavalry trooper eats jet fuel instead of oats and comes with rotor blades instead of a saddle blanket. A lot of chopper pilots won't think twice about taking you into a hot landing zone. They come in low over the treetops, flare, drop down low enough so you can jump without breaking a leg, and then they are out of there. When you need out of that LZ, when the enemy triple-A is working overtime, and when you think no pilot in his right mind is coming in for you–WILD BILL will. NEO-VIPERS get on his nerves. He thinks that anybody who goes to all that trouble to be the best at what they do should at least have the sense to know right from wrong.
"It's my job to get the boys in to do their job, and if that means hanging tough in a hairy situation, that's okay. That's what I get paid for. Heck, if it was easy, they could get anybody to do it."
NEO-VIPERs are the next generation of COBRA infantry troops. These volunteers from COBRA's VIPER unit are genetically altered to withstand severe weather. To change them, COBRA gave them bio-tech engineering that regulates their body temperatures, so that they are not bothered by extreme cold or heat. COBRA also changed their reflexes so that they can move at lightning speed in any weather condition. They are dropped into COBRA's arctic bases to perform environmental sabotage missions and work at COBRA's secret weapons factories. Because they can work anywhere, they are sent in as reliable troops to do basic-grunt duties. They are the number one enemy of FROSTBITE because they destroyed unspoiled tundra land to set up a bio-weapons research lab.
"The G. I. JOE teams are no match for us, because they'll be freezing in their tracks while we're doing marathons on the ice."
