Doctor Elliot Marsh was an archaeologist who dreamed of becoming famous through his discoveries. Sadly, this hubris would be his undoing.
In 1984, Garrison Kreiger teamed with Elliot Marsh to locate the Tomb of Amtoltec in Dashur, Egypt. Marsh noted that the tomb was unusual and that the name "Amtoltec" was not Egyptian. Marsh wanted sole credit for their discovery, but was double-crossed by Kreiger, who killed Marsh to keep him from discovering Kreiger's true goal.
Three days later, the Adventure Team arrived to rescue the pair. Entering the pyramid, G.I. Joe found the only thing Marsh left behind: his tape deck. The Secret of the Mummy's Tomb
- Doctor Marsh is a character from the 1985 G.I. Joe episode "The Gods Below". The episode is alluded to further when "the gods below" are mentioned in Marsh's translation of one of the Amtoltec inscriptions.
