Motto: "The superstitious peasants believe I have returned from apparent demise so many times because I am a ghost. How do you know they are wrong?"
The title of COBRA MORTAL has been given to many men, but only those with the most guile and foresight survive to keep it. The current malefactor is greatly feared by all in the region and is considered the top of the food chain in his territory. He rose to power by aiding corrupt administrators within the Venezuelan government to overthrow the democratic governments neighboring them, reducing legitimate petroleum competition and increasing illegal exports. He is a firm believer in COBRA COMMANDER's goal to throw the world into economic turmoil while his own wealth and power grows.
COBRA MORTAL believes that with his political connections, no military force can supplant him now. However, he prefers to stay protected behind the walls of his mountain fortress, letting his personal bodyguards and hired mercenaries do his bidding. By employing CRIMSON ASP and the COBRA Demolitions Team, they have successfully raided, terrorized or destroyed most of the oil supplies of neighboring countries.
Cobra Mortal was available both boxed and bagged.
Additionally, there were two slightly different head molds used for this figure.
Cobra Mortal (version 2) was created using the head, torso, waist, and arms of Snake Eyes (v54) (2011), the upper legs of Snake Eyes (v28) (2007), and the lower legs and feet of Sgt. Flash (v2) (2008).
