Hit & Run
Hit & Run is the G.I. Joe Team's light infantryman. His real name is Brent Scott, and his rank is that of corporal E-4. Hit & Run was born in Sioux City, Iowa, and was first released as an action figure in 1988.
In 1991, Hit & Run was released in Europe in Tiger Force colors, and he received a 25th anniversary style figure as part of the "Assault on Cobra Island" 7-pack. In the UK Action Force series, Hit and Run's real name is Bryan Scott and he is from Basildon in Essex, England.
Hit & Run's primary military specialty is infantry, and his secondary military specialty is mountaineering. He was orphaned at age three by a drunken driver, and grew up in a county institution. He escapes from the institution regularly, climbing down sheer walls and running for miles across the plains in the middle of the night. He claimed that he was not running away from anything and merely "practicing"; he joined the Army directly after leaving custody of the county.
In the Marvel Comics G.I. Joe series, he first appeared in issue #80. He assists other Joes in stopping Cobra forces on Cobra Island from claiming a nearby land mass. He takes part in an attempt to rescue hostages, which turns out to be not what it seems; the terrorists and hostages were all Cobra agents. It was part of a deal made with Nexus Tech, the company involved, to cover up tax problems.
Later, he deals with a legitimate hostage situation, where an isolated farmhouse is taken over by two criminals, but problems arise when the criminals are initially misidentified. In the next issue, he joins with Tunnel Rat, Stalker and the rookie Scoop to battle Iron Grenadiers, in the fictional country of Sierra Gordo. Scoop earns the team's respect by defeating an enemy in hand to hand combat.
In the Devil's Due series, he is one of the Joes assigned to invade Cobra Island during their second civil war.
