Back when he was still working for the FBI's field operations, Red Zone was the best agent to call in when things got too hot. You can count on him to stop the bad guys and keep situations from escalating further. However, what makes him the best is what also makes him the worst. His approach often involves barging in and taking down the enemy. Nothing wrong with that but he uses more force than is necessary. Simply disabling the enemy isn't enough for him, he has to knock them senseless. While he has yet to get any innocent civilians killed in a firefight, he's considered too trigger happy by his peers. His superiors didn't have to do a lot of figuring out how to kick him off the field. It wasn't long before the Joe Team thought to use his talents against a more dangerous foe: Cobra.
