Dial Tone served as a telecommunications expert for years before volunteering for duty with the G. I. Joe team. He can tune in on enemy transmitter frequencies, locate their coordinates, then attack with pinpoint accuracy. An expert electronics repairman, he also holds the record for setting up a mobile satellite transmitter under battlefield conditions in less than three minutes. Dial Tone's main responsibility is to stay in touch with H.Q. and get the team to the correct extraction site. In environments where there is no radio contact, no reinforcements or evacuation, you're just a sitting duck. That's not a problem for Dial Tone, since he always delivers the message loud and clear.
Here's a guy that has to man the radio and be part of a firefight, in a place where you can't see ten feet in front of you. It takes a soldier with keen instinct and ability. Lucky for us–he has both.
He's the same superb, spirited leader with a different name and a new mission. A recent unprecedented collapse in G. I. Joe's top secret, personnel data system forced the issuance of new code names to several top G. I. Joe brass. Hawk was one of them. Known for his distinguished and exemplary military service and leadership qualities, Gen. Tomahawk now commands a highly trained, undercover special ops unit whose mission is to penetrate COBRA's sophisticated defense network and sabotage their efforts to control the world wide web. Clicking and dragging may be new battlefield strategies, but Gen. Tomahawk is up for the challenge. Anything to make that serpent's evil existence as miserable as possible.
Gen. Tomahawk's career spans over three decades. Guts and glory are synonymous with his name, no matter what he's called. His unique brand of leadership mixes battlefield instincts with a dash of cunning that keeps COBRA dazed and defeated, even beyond the peripheral bounds of cyberspace.
