Low-Light G.I. Joe.png

Low-Light's real name is Cooper G. MacBride, and his rank is that of Staff Sergeant E-6. Low-Light was born in Crosby, ND.

As a child, Low-Light was afraid of the dark, timid with wild animals, and shy of loud noises, until one hunting expedition with his father. He lost his way in the impenetrable darkness, and was found three weeks later, with his flashlight, .22 rifle, and a grin from ear to ear. Ten years later, he was an instructor at the Army Marksmanship Program in Fort Benning and a self-taught expert on image intensification.

Sunbow Series

Being an extremely private person, Low Light avoids conversations with his teammates and communicates with them only when necessary. Low-Light appeared in the original G.I. Joe animated series. Low-Light in his first uniform appeared throughout the second season of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, and was voiced by Charlie Adler who also voiced Silverbolt, Spike the Dragon (G1), Buster Bunny, Cow, Chicken, Ickis, Bev Bighead, etc. In the series, he is depicted as having nightmares and disliking the dark. He wears his night vision goggles to keep him from having to see the night. It is hinted in the episode "Nightmare Assault" that abuse from his father might have played a role in his fear of the dark. In this episode, his father berates him in a dream, and orders him to catch some rats, which he fears.

G.I. Joe: The Movie

Low-Light is shown in a few scenes of G.I. Joe the Movie, but like many of the characters of the Sunbow Cartoon, he has a very minor role. His most memorable part was serving as bailiff during Falcon's Court-martial. He is glimpsed at the battle of the Statue of Liberty in the opening, and can be glimpsed during the battle of Cobra-La. He can be seen barely getting up from the ground after the explosive destruction of Cobra-La, as Doc calls Hawk regarding Duke's recovery.
