Scott, Eric U.
Armored Vehicle Operator
Machete, Mean Dog
WILDCARD possesses an unnatural talent for breaking things. Sturdy steel machines, simple tools, delicate toys, immovable objects of cast iron, 8-piece dinner settings; nothing is immune to his uncanny destructive powers! Fortunately, that which is judged to be an abominable affliction in civilian circles can be a valuable skill in military ones!
|“||When Wildcard is driving the Mean Dog, the vehicle becomes an extension of himself; a raging engine of destruction, pulverizing all in its path. If the enemy, by sheer luck, manages to knock out the Mean Dog, they then put themselves in the position of having to deal with Wildcard directly! You could go so far as to call that a violation of the Geneva Convention!||”|
Born June 14, 1957. Growing up in Northampton, Massachusetts, Wildcard developed an unnatural habit of unintentionally breaking things. Fortunately for him, the Army gave him an outlet for his destructive tendencies. After enlisting, Wildcard became a trained armored vehicle driver. He is also one of the few Joes who is an actual chaplain's assistant (The first Pit was hidden beneath the Army's chaplains' assistants school, and the Pit III was called a chaplains assistants supply depot).
Wildcard was assigned to drive the Mean Dog heavy assault vehicle for the G.I. Joe team. When first assigned to the team, Wild Card drove the Mean Dog to the Pit in Utah, traveling with the new Desert Fox jeep, carrying Skidmark and Windmill. The Joes unwittingly gave Cobra's Star-Viper access to the Pit when the electronically-enhanced Viper snuck underneath the Desert Fox. Wildcard and the others chased the Star-Viper later that evening as he escaped with top secret electronic "black boxes." The Mean Dog's missiles destroyed the truck the Viper escaped in, but not before he could escape in his rocket plane. His escape led to the Joes' involvement in the Cobra Island civil war.
Wildcard served with the team on many more missions over the years, including fighting Dreadnoks on a highway near Broca Beach, New Jersey and helped defend the desert around the Pit from Cobra infiltrators. Wildcard later was part of an orbital insertion of the Mobile Battle Bunker vehicle into Trucial Abysmia to rescue a group of Joes ambushed by Cobra. Several Joes had all ready been killed.
The huge operation, the Battle of Benzheen soon followed. Wildcard took part in many more missions, including helping to test the Army's new railgun prototype by driving the Monster Blaster APC carrying the weapon, before the Joe team was shut down in 1994.
He is a reserve member of the team. In 2016 Wildcard was sent to Benzheen to try to win a tank contract there. During the trial, Benzheen was attacked by forces from nearby Trucial Abysmia. While operating an M1 Abrams, Wildcard assisted in driving the Trucial Abysmia forces back from the Benzheen border, although the Benzheen government was ultimately overthrown from within and Wildcard lost the contract.
