31 Days of GI JOE – Zartan

zartan1 Drawing for each day. I am going to start by doing one for each letter of the alphabet… Then an additional five of my personal favorite joes…

I really wanted to do a Joe or Cobra for every letter of the Alphabet. Turns out though that there has never been a character on either side with a name starting with Y! So instead today I give you one of the very first Joe figures I had when I was a kid…

Day 26 is Zartan

Filecard Information

File Name: Unknown
Alias: Too numerous to list
Birthplace: Unknown
Motto: “I can be anyone, anywhere. You will never know that you are talking to me, unless I wish it.”

ZARTAN can alter his skin color at will to blend in with his environment. He is also a master of make-up and disguise, a ventriloquist, a linguist (over 20 languages and dialects), an acrobatic-contortionist and a practitioner of several mystic martial arts. Very little is known of his background and origins, but most security agencies agree that he must have had European military academy training (probably St. Cyr).
