The man who would become known as Cobra Commander was once an average American small-businessman who had a run of bad luck which made him paranoid, obsessive and dangerous. After the death of his brother caused by drunk driving, the future despot sought revenge, through vigilante justice, upon those that he felt wronged him. In time he brought others to his anti-government anti-corporate philosophy building an army within the borders of the United States with the goal of brining the world under the control of the Cobra Command.
