Rangers lead the way: Lonzo is the highest caliber special forces Green Beret.
Stalker is the proven truth when it comes to Army Special Operations; ready to deploy by land, air and sea anywhere in the world at a moments notice to respond to the latest contingency or crisis. This Green Beret has executed the most critical special missions of direct action, hostage rescue, clandestine night fighting, air field seizure, infiltration and advanced Recon. Missions so critical his superiors , superiors can't even talk about them. The perfect warrior and epitome of the Ranger Creed.
The field commander of the original G.I.Joe team which consisted of Rock N Roll, Short Fuse, Scarlett, Breaker, Grunt, Zap, Grandslam, Snake Eyes and Flash.
Stalker has been in the OA1 top five figures since 1982, his first appearance.
Me and Stalker has destroyed all my neighborhood friends teams of Joe's.
We firecracker ed their guys, won their vehicles and took home their weapons. Alpha Fight stands undefeated.
I still have multiple versions of the figure. Their a little rough for wear but who doesn't have battle scars? Here's one or two from my collection, I added in a few new one's with my old ones and a couple of custom jobs too just to let you know were ready to roll if that's what you want to do (just saying).

Stalker was always prominent in the figure realm and has a multitude of action figures. In the G.I.Joe comics and cartoon though he had no true presence. After the first season of the cartoon he wasn't included at all. Roadblock was the big strong Black guy that spoke everything in rhyme, that always bragged about being a gourmet cook. He's the African American that is G.I.Joe spotlighted not the multilingual medic bad ass Green Beret.?. Don't get me wrong, I like Roadblock and I chalked it up to Stalker and Duke are figuratively the same guy; the leader, the main character, the most interesting character to build around. So they couldn't have two (riiight). Add in that later the word stalker became a socially used negative descriptive word. Still, no excuse not to use Stalker the G.I.Joe in the mainstream (unless you have no creative talent).
Well Stalker was cool when he was in the cartoon.
Stalker could easily move right into his own individually mainstreamed verse in the world of G.I.Joe. With his own supporting cast of joes to go along with him.
His squad would be Beach head, Gung Ho, Airborne, Shipwreck,
Doc (Carla Greer) and Bomb strike.
Duke's team is usually Roadblock, Scarlett, Flint, Lady Jaye and Stalker
Snake Eyes support team is usually Storm Shadow, Jinx, kamakura, Quinn, the Hard master and the Blind Master. sometimes Stalker.
So these guys can cameo when it's Stalkers time to shine.
I'd back up Lonzo's 1st team with
Spirit, Snow Job, Recondo, Bullet Proof, Dial tone and Alpine.
But this is a OA1 dream production so who knows who might show up.
the October Guard would for sure.
