Fictional character biographyEdit

Strike Force Kobra IEdit

Kobra researched every villain that ever fought Batman and how they each acquired their respective powers. After obtaining some test subjects, Kobra had his researchers use this information to transform them into Strike Force Kobra. Kobra sent them to fight the Outsiders and infiltrate Stagg Enterprises. During the resulting fight, Spectrumonster was destroyed and the rest of Strike Force Kobra was defeated by the Outsiders and arrested by the police.[1]

Strike Force Kobra IIEdit

Kobra would later form a second incarnation of Strike Force Kobra led by his cult member Lady Eve. When this version of Strike Force Kobra was defeated by Eradicator's incarnation of the Outsiders even after the death of the third Syonide, Lady Eve called Kobra for help only for him to tell them to surrender. This action caused a strain between Kobra and Lady Eve.[2]

  • Elemental Woman - A former lab assistant of Kobra who can turn into different elements like Elemental Man did.
