why does everyone seem to think that kobra would be all soft and needy? i'd like to think that they're all pretty badass, but with party poison being angsty because he has to make hard calls (think of bellamy of the 100). i've also never read the comics so this is just my own headcanon.
I think Kobra would toughen up in the Zones, because it’s a hard life and he’d see some ugly things. At times he might toughen up too much, and the guys would have to coax him out of his barriers so he doesn’t shut them out. He’d still have a soft side, though–at least the way I imagine him. Poison would probably have a lot of stress and guilt on his mind as the leader, who sometimes has to make hard decisions, as you said. That’d be interesting to explore.
