|This article is about the first Hi-Tech. For his formerly-EDC successor, see Hi-Tech II.|
Hi-Tech, aka David Lewinsky, was a G.I. Joe member who specializes in operation support.
At some point, Hi-Tech was replaced by a Dire Wraith.
Hi-Tech was part of the G.I. Joe unit that attacked the Transformers in Portland, Oregon. He was one of several Wraiths killed by Rom when the Space Knight arrived to eliminate Wraith infiltrators in G.I. Joe.
The codename Hi-Tech was passed onto Sanjay Bharwaney when he joined G.I. Joe.
- Hi-Tech's original G.I. Joe filecard gave his name as "David P. Lewinski," spelled with an "i". However, the first issue of Revolution spells it with a "y". Since that was Hi-Tech's first (and probably only) appearance in IDW continuity, we've opted to use the latter spelling.
- It's unclear whether Hi-Tech was once a human who was absorbed and replaced by a Wraith or whether he was always a Wraith who constructed a false identity.
