Bio: A leader is always in the position of making the tough calls and hard decisions. DUKE, as the head of the G.I. Joe team, understands the burden of leadership all too well. When it's the duty of the team to respond to a thread against the world, DUKE must be the one to make sure that the priroities are clear: the mission comes first and everything else comes a distant second. He demands a lot from his team, but doesn't ask anything of them that he isn't willing to give himself. His hard-won experience and unflinching determination have earned him the respect and loyalty of his team. "We're the G.I. Joe team. Now we show COBRA why it's a mistake to go up against us."
This newly sculpted version of the Duke is from the upcoming "G.I. Joe: Resolute" webisodes, which will focus on a much more realistic, mature-themed G.I. Joe and Cobra conflict than earlier animated versions. Rumors abound on how the famed G.I. Joe leader will be portrayed in the highly anticipated series; however, fans can expect to find this courageous man once again going face-to-face with a revamped and technologically modernistic Cobra army, ready to wage war all over the world. Of note, there is an uncorrected error on Resolute Duke's cardback: in the second sentence of his file card, "G.I Joe" is spelled without a punctuation mark after the "I" in G.I. Joe. Duke comes with a black and silver futuristic looking machine gun, a knife, pistol, and stand.
