Real Name: "Cobra" Crisp
Identity/Class: Normal human
Occupation: former Police officer, Commodities Broker
Affiliations: Badger, Everett Dirksen
Known Relatives: Brother (name escapes me)
Base of Operations: Chicago
First Appearance: The Badger #9 (First Comics, January 1986)
Powers/Abilities: Cobra is a top martial artist, and is also prepared to fight dirty to win, using mace and crowbars amongst his repertoire of weapons.
History: Cobra was a police man in Chicago before being thrown off the force for unnecessary roughness. After Badger beat up on his brother he came looking for a fight, and got one. But the Badger impressed him during their battle and when the fight ended the two became friends.
Cobra got into commodities after he left the force, and has offices in the Prudential Tower.
Comments: Just as the Badger is visited by the ghost of Warren Oates, Cobra is given advise by the ghost of Everett Dirksen. This may be a genuine haunting rather than a hallucination, as it was using what Everett told him that allowed Cobra to track the Badger down the first time they met, but it's hard to tell.
CLARIFICATIONS: Not to be confused with
