Introduced in Journey into Mystery #98 (Nov. 1963), Cobra was created by the renowned writer Stan Lee and artist Don Heck. In his origin story, Voorhees worked as a laboratory assistant alongside a professor who aimed to develop a remedy for venomous snake bites.

Through a fortuitous combination of a radioactive cobra bite and an experimental anti-venom, Klaus acquired superhuman abilities, eventually adopting the moniker of the Human Cobra, which later evolved into simply Cobra.

It is worth noting that Cobra's origin story bears a resemblance to that of Spider-Man, who gained his extraordinary abilities after being bitten by a radioactive spider. The parallel underscores the theme of unexpected circumstances leading to the emergence of superhuman powers in the Marvel Universe.

Captain America 4, titled Captain America: Brave New World, is generating anticipation among fans, despite the limited information available about its plot. However, clues have emerged through the cast members involved. Harrison Ford will be replacing William Hurt in the role of Thunderbolt Ross, who now serves as the President of the United States.

Liv Tyler, known for her portrayal of Betty Ross, Bruce Banner's former love interest and Thunderbolt's daughter, will be returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) after her last appearance in 2008's The Incredible Hulk. Additionally, Tim Blake Nelson, who played Samuel Sterns, will also be making his long-awaited return. His inclusion suggests that he might assume the antagonistic role of The Leader.

The events of the Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will directly impact Captain America 4. In the series, Sam Wilson initially rejects the mantle of Captain America but ultimately embraces the role by the finale.

The show also introduced John Walker, played by Wyatt Russell, as an ill-fated replacement for Captain America. Now adopting the moniker U.S. Agent, Walker is set to reappear in the upcoming Thunderbolts film.
