I've read some of the new comics (the TPB's, anyway). The Coil was a faction of COBRA that was loyal to Serpentor and resurrected him. They were a fifth column in COBRA until the time of Serpentor's return, then they revealed themselves. Members of the Coil during the second COBRA civil war were Serpentor, Dr. Mindbender, Firefly, Zandar, Overkill (the SAW Viper that killed Doc and the other Joes in the Marvel series) and Overlord. Some of the Coil soldiers look, I think, kind of like the VvV Night Creepers only in different colors. The Coil insignia looks something like the snake logo that is on the side of the 1985 COBRA Hydrofoil.

They're really not very well-developed in the DD comics. The DD comics are much more like the Sunbow animated series in content than the original Marvel comics.

By my own limited knowledge...the Coil (according to DDP comics) are a small faction of former Cobra agents and new terrorist recruits who are loyal to Serpentor. They originally headquartered on Cobra Island. Their general officer appears to be Overlord (from the ARAH toy that came with the Dictator vehicle). Serpentor and his Coil were vanquished by Cobra and Joe forces in a major battle on Cobra Island. Apparently the majority of them were just incinerated in a strike on Cobra Island. We don't know whether the Coil will be finished off, or possible rise again.
