Biography: Solid Snake is a black ops/spy entrusted with keeping the world safe from the huge bipedal, nuclear-armed robots known as the Metal Gears. Since the first Metal Gear, Solid Snake has gone from snot nosed new clone (reproduced from the DNA of Big Boss) to white-haired and decrepit war veteran (despite only being set five years after Sons of Liberty).
What he’s doing in MGS4: We last saw him melting into the crowd at the end of MGS2 with information on The Patriots - a sinister organization controlling the US Government. Despite having retired from active duty more times than “Sugar” Ray Leonard, he’s now back to take them on - let’s hope his colostomy bag is suitably hardy.
