GOTHAM: Darkness Rising
Consolidated Operational Business Resource Aquisitions Group
The C.O.B.R.A. Group was originally founded in 1803. An amalgam of business men from an assortment of industries sought to unify for their collective benefit. It seemed the perfect marriage to pit steel production with railway construction, Telegraph with copper extrusion, mining with the westward slave importation.
While beginning as a US company, they quickly moved into global operations by the end of 1858, possibly due to the reduction of activities from their greatest rival, the East India Trading Company. Since then COBRA Group has known nothing but steady growth.
in 1993 they were the first company to be granted Sovereignty thru the unanimous United Nations Mega-Corporations Resolution of that same year. As since that first day they have been a formative and formidable force; helping to define the role of corporate armed forces, the role of the CAG, the Corporate Advisory Group, which sits in and attends the UN Security Council as a non voting member.
