Cobra Carson is one of the main protagonists from the newspaper comic strip Rip Haywire, by Dan Thompson.

In Rip Haywire

Cobra is described as "being all of the James Bond girls if they were combined into one." Cobra is a feisty young woman who was Rip Haywire's on again off again girlfriend. She was a criminal before she met Rip, and is still greedy even after she started dating him. She serves as an anti-heroine because of her greed, and she would often only help Rip on his missions if it meant that she could get anything out of it.

In the current story arc, Cobra is no longer Rip's girlfriend. Instead, she was replaced by a red-haired and naive woman named Breezy, whom she would often get into fights with over Rip's affections.
