The Cobras are a gang of West-End white kids. The gang is run by McNab, the older brother of the two runaway boys, Piper and Russell, that Maniac discovers in Valley Forge. McNab's house is dirty and chaotic and violent, the opposite of what Maniac experienced at the Beale's place. The Cobras are tough and racist, and have a hard time accepting it when Maniac introduces them to Mars Bar, a local black kid from the other end of town.
