For years, Kobra wondered whether his martial arts training would work in a real fight. Even though he has been practicing his skills at his NYC karate school, no one was allowed to really hurt each other. So, he went to New York's back alleys in order for him to put his skills to the test.
At first, he started on street gangs. Then, he went to gangbangers and drug dealers. The thrill and excitement of fighting started to consume him, and he started killing his opponents. He continued his killing streak and added looting to his list when he robbed convenience stores and gas stations. Eventually, the NYPD caught him. At this point, Kobra had no clue as to how many lives he had destroyed.
When Kobra was being
taken downtown, he heard gunfire and officers shouting. Kabal and Kira
had found out about him and came to induct him into the new Black Dragon
syndicate. After killing the officers and escaping, Kabal took Kira and
Kobra to Outworld, where they worked for Havik, the cleric of Chaos who
had brought Kabal back from the brink of death.
