Firewall is the code name used by G.I. Joe team recruit Michelle LaChance.
Devil's Due comic continuity
While growing up in Virginia Beach, Virginia, Firewall had a knack for computers, and once hacked into the high school records of an enemy, altering her grades so that she was not in the running for class valedictorian. She was never caught, and liked the rush of being able to ruin an uncaring braggart. She continued hacking into computer systems, eventually chaging credit card numbers and bank accounts of government officials. She stayed undetected for some time, until she hacked her way into U.S. Army computers and discovered the Army's experimental nano-mite program. She was arrested by the Feds, but they realized they could make use of her skills and she began working for the government. Firewall was put on temporary assignment with the G.I. Joe team to help put a stop to Cobra's nano-mites. She and fellow hacker, Daemon, both stayed with the team longer, working with the Joes' resident computer expert, Mainframe. The Joes' drill sergeant, Beach Head began running the programmers through a training program should they ever see combat. Firewall stuck to mostly computer work, while Daemon worked to become a soldier. He and Firewall used their skills to assist in several missions, including the fight to stop terrorist Tyler Wingfield. Daemon and Firewall displayed their immaturity when working together, with a relationship like two squabbling siblings. On their first field assignment, Firewall and Daemon helped drive the vehicle carrying a group of children who were revealed to be the clones of Serpentor. The Joes' convoy of vehicles was unexpectedly attacked by the forces of the revived Serpentor, known at The Coil. The main vehicle was torn to pieces and Serpentor arrived to liberate his brothers inside. When Daemon tried to stop him, the former Cobra Emperor grabbed him by the throat and snapped his neck, killing him, and as Firewall and Roadblock looked on in shock. The remaining Joes were taken prisoner and held on Cobra Island until an invasion force arrived to battle The Coil. The battle was won, and the Joes headed home, later having a ceremony for their lost teammates. Firewall continues to work for the team and recently assisted Barrel Roll remotely when he hacked into Cobra Island's computer system. (v2 #3, 4, 10, 16, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 29, 37; FL 13, 18)
