Mini-Series Premiere. The Rise of Cobra begins here. In a world where the Cobra organization hasn’t formed, one man’s sinister plans to utilize the mysterious alien substance known as Energon sends shockwaves across the globe. Who is Cobra Commander? Where does he come from? And what horrors is he planning to unleash that will rock the world-and maybe the universe-to its core? Red-Hot writer Joshua Williamson and artist Andrea Milana kick off the second of four action-packed miniseries that will introduce the best and worst humanity has to offer in the Energon Universe.

We then get a flashback to his past, where we learn more about his background, his relationship with his brother, and his obsession with Energon. Williamson does a great job of balancing the character development and the plot progression, as we see how Cobra Commander’s actions have consequences that shape his destiny.

Milana and Leoni create a dynamic and immersive visual experience, with detailed and expressive characters, vivid and varied settings, and explosive and exciting action scenes.
