How has Fat Cobra never had a solo ongoing series? Someone like Zdarksky could have a blast with him imo.

It would ruin the character. He works because we aren't delving too deep into his psyche or trying to put him up against some sort of Anti-Fat Cobra. Just let him grace other characters comics and let him be himself, as he has been.

It isn't like he would stay in the background of whatever he is in.

Fat Cobra would probably lose some of his luster as a main character, unless a really good writer was involved.

It's like Dr. Dinosaur from Atomic Robo. He's hilarious and amazing every time he shows up, but he doesn't have much range beyond that.

Isn't the one deep look we get into Fat Cobra's psyche loving depressing? Something like he's had hundreds of kids and loved hundreds of women, and they're all dead, many of them at his hand or at the hands of enemy martial artists, or something?

His entire biography is basically nothing but suffering and it's strongly implied he just makes himself forget as a coping mechanism.

Fat Cobra's comically over-the-top badass persona is to cover up the fact that his life is a mess and he's completely ruined his own happiness time and time again.

Him mentoring Rockslide would be good if it had a scene where Rockslide realizes that Fat Cobra, while badass, is not what Rockslide wants to be, and he promptly tells Fat Cobra off. And Fat Cobra respects him for that, because he knows that Rockslide's got a chance to do better than he did with his life.

Is this during the run before Secret Wars?

I loved how they wrote Dr. Strange during that time, desperately seeking any source of power no matter the cost to stave off a insurmountable threat.

Well that and the Eye of Agamotto appearing all over the background art, the Eye has a pretty heavy backstory specifically dealing with demonic possession.

Did they make some headway because T'challa and/or the Dora Milaje were just stunned at the sheer balls of the attempt to do crime directly in front of them?
