As is the case with the vast, vast majority of the GI Joe team (save for outliers like Sgt. Savage and Robo-Joe), Mayday is but a normal human. She has a few high tech gizmos with which to fight evil, but most of her work is done with her skills and conventional technology.
Hindrances / Augmentations:
Knife (s): as do almost all modern military personnel, Mayday carries a blade with her at all times. This m.s. 12 knife can be used to cut through items of up to like m.s., given enough time, or to otherwise inflict +2 damage against living targets.
Sidearms (a): Mayday carries two of these weapons with her in the field, one holstered on each hip. She can either discharge one round from them, inflicting her Agility +4 in damage, or she can fire them in a semi-automatic mode to inflict her Agility +5 in damage.
Sniper Rifle (a): when she's doing more 'long range' work, Mayday occasionally carries a bolt-action rifle in the field. She can fire this weapon to inflict her Agility +5 damage per deadly shot, adding a +1 to hit when using the attached scope.
Boxing (s): everyone who enlists is taught how to defend themselves unarmed; mind you, Mayday prefers to simply shoot her enemies. Either way, she may divide her pre-card play action score amongst two unarmed attacks per exchange, the second occurring as a contingent action.
Guns 3 (a): Mayday is a staggeringly effective marksman. She can regularly pull off feats with a firearm that are seemingly impossible. She may autotrump when wielding either a standard, semi-automatic, or fully automatic rifle or pistol in battle.
Military / United States (w): the source of most of her talents, whether marketable or otherwise, Mayday is a product of the United States Army. This skill serves as an origin of sorts for the lady, and details her ability to lead fighting men and women into battle.
Mayday is a member of the GI Joe team who started out as one of its Greenshirts. The Joes saw her earn her place on the team first-hand, and she may thus consider them reliable contacts, particularly her fellow Greenshirts who also managed to 'make it' as well.
Soldier: Mayday is an exemplary soldier, able to keep her cool no matter what crazy situations her duty pulls her into. She does her job out of a need to both prove herself worthy of the military, and to defend her nation from the many threats arrayed against it!
Mayday's first field uniform as a full Joe consists of a long-sleeved, black stretch fabric shirt beneath a gray sleeveless vest, black and gray two-tone trousers, gray boots, gray gloves, gray holsters for his pistols, gray elbow and knee pads, and a brown leather belt.
Like many of the GI Joe team's Greenshirts, Paige is somewhat cocky. This arrogance is earned, however, and is usually tolerated since Paige's bite easily matches her bark, so to speak. She delights in pushing her already world-class skills to their limit - and beyond!

A Sergeant in the United States Army, Paige Adams had developed from a lowly recruit into a world-class marksman - among her many other skills. Having proven herself time and time again in conventional service, she was assigned to an elite team upon its reactivation.
This elite team: GI Joe!
By this time, the Joes' exploits had been largely declassified, to better educate the world about the threat that Cobra posed in the previous century, and Paige was more than a little excited to be invited into this exclusive group.
Of course, her membership was probationary, and upon first joining GI Joe, she had to do her time as one of its new 'Greenshirt' trainees. Paige managed to stand out quite well during this time, and even impressed some of the Joes with her seemingly unnatural accuracy with firearms.
In fact, she was chosen to participate on a special mission in eastern Europe, alongside several other Joes and some Iron Grenadier. Their mission: to rescue both Flint and the Baroness, who'd been captured by rogue Russian mobsters with an axe or two to grind.
After this, Paige's exemplary performance during the second Cobra Island Civil War prompted the Joes to make her a fully fledged member, complete with her own code name: Mayday! She even got to show this off on her very first mission as an official Joe - back on Cobra Island.
There, she joined Torpedo, Mariner, and Depth Charge in creating a diversion such that Barrel Roll could infiltrate the Cobra's Raptor Viper forces - Spy Troops style. This mission was a success, and once he'd done his damage, Mayday helped to extract Barrel Roll shortly thereafter.
Shortly after this mission, Mayday was placed in a reserve status, along with a majority of the GI Joe team - only to be eventually recalled to active duty when World War III broke out. This conflict, ignited by Cobra, almost saw that terrorist organization take over the entire planet!
Luckily for the world at large, the GI Joe team managed to stop Cobra Commander and his army from conquering the earth - albeit only barely. With this done, Mayday and the rest of the Joes resumed their anti-terrorist work full-time once more, to stop this from happening again.
Cobra may be beaten, after all, but a lot of its personnel are still at large!
