Joseph "Gunslinger Joe" Stallion is a former quarterback turned resistance fighter against the Nazi occupation of the United States (now the American Territories). One of his missions involved fighting his way through Nazi forces in Chicago, up to the reaches of space.
Joseph "Gunslinger Joe" Stallion is former quarterback who used to play for the Springfield Firebirds before the occupation. After the war, his father formed the Resistance group and managed to cause a lot of trouble for the Nazis. However, he was eventually captured and sent to work as hard labor by Metze.
Joe himself is enslaved by Metze and forced to play in an unfair football game. After managing to defy his oppressors, he is arrested and sentenced to be dissected by Metze. He manages to free himself out of Metze's lab after learning the activity of Resistance group in the area and the official beginning of the Second American Revolution. After fighting through the Nazis, he is ambushed by Metze and he executes the Resistance members. Due to Metze's overconfidence and lack of caution, he tasks a soldier to kill Joe only for Joe to escape his execution.
He reunites with his father in the prison of a local Nazi police station after disposing Metze's death trap. He manages to go into the Venus Oberkommando base to stop Metze from firing the Sun Gun to suppress the activities of the American Resistance in the midwest. After disposing nearly all Metze's men, he is shot by Metze in the hip. As Metze stupidly gloats his triump, he asks why Metze didn’t fire the Sun Gun and Metze reveals that its not operational yet. Taking the opportunity, Joe tackles Metze out of the window to his death and fights his way out of the Venus base.
- Unnecessary Roughness: years of football training making Joe toughs enough to ram through weakened brick wall and anyone stands in his way. This abilities similar to Ram Shackle but lesser power.
- Cannon arm: years of gridiron training making Joe strong enough to throw object at deadly velocity to take down enemy from the distance silently.
- Steady feet: Unlike B.J., Joe football training enables him to stand on his feet when getting caught in the shockwave of an explosion.
- Stallion's name and appearance are an allusion to Joseph Stalin, dictator of the USSR which had a brief armistice with Nazi Germany, before joining with the Allied Powers and becoming one of the chief enemies of the Nazi regime.
- Ironically, Stallion's nickname "Gunslinger Joe" is a reference to Joseph "Gunner Joe" McCarthy, the disgraced US Senator who embarked on a campaign to root out supposed USSR-allied Communist infiltrators within the US Army.
