Day 14 is Night Creeper

File Card Info:

The NIGHT CREEPER forces are a super-secret group of high-tech Ninjas who have had a long-standing contract with COBRA to handle high-risk field intelligence operations and covert infiltration, they are extremely crafty, well motivated and have an abnormally high pain tolerance, which makes them hard to predict, hard to stop and hard to knock down and keep down. If you took a totally ruthless person, trained him for ten years in five forms of martial arts and then equipped him with all the most advanced electronic stealth and passive sensor technology, you may have an approximation of an ordinary high-tech ninja, once you strip away all of his scruples, morals and innate feelings of common decency, then you have a NIGHT CREEPER, they used their ninja skills and dexterity to infiltrate a zoo and steal DNA samples for the hybridization experiments being conducted by DR. MINDBENDER.

“There is no place you can hide where we can’t find you, no fortress that can keep us from getting to you, and no armor to protect you once we are there.”

Day ten is Cobra’s Jungle B.A.T.

File Card Info:

B.A.T.s are totally artificial robot troopers with extremely primitive logic circuits and very sophisticated targeting sensors. They can absorb enormous amounts of battle damage and still continue their missions as long as their trigger finger circuits are intact. B.A.T.s are usually deployed from low-flying aircraft without use of parachutes. This delivery system is normally quite demoralizing to opposing troops who happen to witness it.

“The new B.A.T.s, although upgraded in weapons systems, have been severely down-graded in logic and memory components, which have been deemed unnecessary for what is now a machine gun with legs. The right arm can be replaced with a modular missile launcher capable of firing a wide assortment of ordnance. The basic model has three forward gears, no reverse option, and can be recharged from an ordinary household electrical outlet.”

D’oh!!! Just looked at the card and realized that I just did a drawing of a Jungle B.A.T. in a bombed out urban setting… Real smart.

Day nine is Destro’s Iron Grenadier

 

File Name: Various
Grade: O-1 (Lieutenant)
Birthplace: Various
Primary Specialty: Infantry Officer
Secondary Specialty: Sales & Acquisitions
Motto: “Victory! Honor! Profits!”

These IRON GRENADIER officers are handpicked to be DESTRO’s personal bodyguards. They are always no further than a caber toss away from their leader at all times. In battle, their higher military acumen and desire to control others is used to command squads of IRON GRENADIER troopers. They coordinate destruction to simulate any type of potential attack DESTRO wants his customers to fear – and then make them pay through the nose to defend against it.

IRON GRENADIER officers spearhead incursions into new territory. They act as agents provocateurs, saboteurs, or outright terrorists. Their goal is to impel an unsuspecting country towards chaos and turmoil, thereby creating new markets for M.A.R.S. (Military Armaments Research Systems) weaponry where none existed before. They maintain this tenacious behavior because their pay is a percentage of gross sales.
