Sgt. Robert Stevens Savage was the legendary leader of the U.S. Army's Screaming Eagles unit during World War II.


To compensate for the Eagles' limited manpower, Savage employed a strategy called the "notional mole:" false evidence was planted in enemy territory indicating that a double agent had landed, and Savage allowed the Iron Army to intercept transmissions suggesting that the supposed mole had infiltrated the army's highest ranks. The deception caused Iron Army leader General Blitz to kill a third of his own high command out of paranoia. Threat Matrix 1 of 4

During a 1943 battle in Kalistan, Savage and his Eagles discovered that one of the German troops attacking them was actually a robot. Unfazed, Savage defeated the machine by ripping its head off with his bare hands. The Secret of the Mummy's Tomb TFWikiFavicon.png

Joe Colton regarded Savage as one of his personal heroes; the sergeant's heroics inspired Colton to join the military and were a key inspiration for the creation of the Adventure Team. Revolution #2 Joe Colton bio TFWikiFavicon.png Threat Matrix 1 of 4


  • Savage's middle name has not been consistent: "Stevens" was used in G.I. Joe vol. 3 #7, while Joe Colton's bio in Revolution #2 uses "Stephan", and Revolutionaries #3 uses "Steven". The latter is the original way Savage's middle name was rendered.
