Made in 2005. We discussed lesser known roles of David Hasslehoff, which led to the thought "We don't have enough S.H.I.E.L.D. agents!" After a quick discussion, we decided lacking the proper accessories for Hasslehoff(Pam Anderson, and K.I.T.T.), we would need to pick someone else to start with. Reviewing the agent list, we settled on G. W. Bridge, Mike decide he wanted to take a stab at his first solo fig and here's the result.... Also pictured here is a dr Strange head on the fuure body of G.W Bridge,just to show the figs height.

Here is his backstory.
Little is known about George Washington Bridge's early youth. He prefers to call himself "G.W." to avoid any jokes about the George Washington Bridge. Years ago, G.W. was a highly skilled mercenary, part of the Wild Pack, a group of mercenaries gathered by Cable. Other members included Theodore Winchester (Grizzly), Domino, Garrison Kane and Eugene Eisenhower "Ike" Canty (Hammer). After several successful missions, the Wild Pack was hired by Tolliver, an arms dealer, under the condition that they changed their name; agents from Silver Sable had let them know that the name "Wild Pack" was taken. The team renamed itself Six Pack and went on the mission. The mission turned out to be disastrous: They encountered Stryfe, Cable's archenemy. Cable left the team to pursue his own vendetta, shooting Hammer and sacrificing Kane. Bridge, Domino and Grizzly managed to escape. Kane and Hammer survived, but were heavily injured. Hammer would be confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life, while Kane would receive cybernetic replacements for the arms he lost.

Bridge joined S.H.I.E.L.D. and worked his way up to Commander. When Cable joined the New Mutants and turned them into X-Force, S.H.I.E.L.D. asked Bridge to investigate the team. Despite the grudge Bridge carried against Cable, he still felt that he owed Cable a warning, but it was ignored. Working with the Canadian Department K, Bridge formed Weapon P.R.I.M.E., a group of superbeings who all carried a grudge against Cable. Weapon P.R.I.M.E. included Garrison Kane, now known as Weapon X, Grizzly, Rictor, Yeti (originally identified as Wendigo) and Tygerstryke. They attacked X-Force, but found out that Cable had just left the team. Unwilling to fight his former teammates, Rictor joined X-Force. Also, Tygerstryke was wounded during the fight and the team fell apart.

G.W. Bridge returned to S.H.I.E.L.D. duty. He met with Cable shortly afterwards and after a short fight, the two made peace. Over the next few years, Bridge would inform Cable and his allies in X-Force and the X-Men on any mutant-related problems S.H.I.E.L.D. encountered. Bridge warned Cable about Operation: Zero Tolerance. When Cable's mutant powers began to dramatically increase, Bridge started to distrust Cable again and formed a new Six Pack, this time funded by S.H.I.E.L.D. to investigate Cable. Cable defeated the Six Pack and convinced several members to take his side, but not Bridge. Shortly afterwards, Cable was defeated by the Silver Surfer.

Bridge and Domino reappear as they are hired again as mercenaries. Apparently Bridge has left S.H.I.E.L.D[1].

Most recently, Bridge returned to S.H.I.E.L.D. action at the request of Jasper Sitwell, looking drastically different physically and is shown to have converted to Islam. He was contracted to take down Frank Castle, the Punisher. However, G.W. was unsuccessful in apprehending the Punisher, despite cornering him in close quarters. In light of these events, Bridge has resigned from active S.H.I.E.L.D. status because he believes that he will never have the freedom under S.H.I.E.L.D. command to use necessary force to take Frank Castle into custody. He has been immediately re-hired by Sitwell as an independent contractor, feeling this move will give him the proper ability to use whatever means necessary[2].

I concur, however this would be my recomendation make every other 2 pack of shield agents have a girl and a fatter body like DumDum Dugans, and the regular two pack have two generic figs the first one kind of a spiderman build and the other one a little taller like Bridge, Cable, Hammer Etc. That way you have a great and non clone army. plus we customizers have 4 bodies to work with.

Hasbro should make a bunch of SHIELD agents with Variant heads so you can get a bunch but still really only issue 2 figures. 1 Male body and 1 female.
