    Short summary describing this character.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    One of Viper's aides, Copperhead posed as the leader of the new Serpent Squad to get the attention of Sidewinder, leader of the Serpent Society. After a chain of robberies in Las Vegas, the group succeeded, and they were teleported out of prison after a battle with Captain America. When Viper put her plan in motion, Copperhead led Cobra and Boomslang in poisoning the water supply of Washington D.C. However, Copperhead was quickly defeated by Captain America and taken to prison.

    After Viper abandoned the group, Copperhead stayed for a brief period of time, joining Diamondback and Fer-de-Lance on one mission. However, when Cobra took over leadership, not being on great terms with him, Copperhead left the group and has not been seen since.


    Copperhead was created by Mark Gruenwald and Tom Morgan in 1988 and first appeared in Captain America # 337.
