Kinda disappointed they don't have the male Copperhead...if they really wanted a female assassin, Shiva or Cheshire more than qualify

Cool history vid, though.

Awesome vid, would have been cool to seen a Lobo 3 min expert before the new Lobo's debut.

@citizenjp: it's been a year unless you count my low-budge Superior Spidey or Zod video.

@g_man: Wow I didn't know Copperhead had some interesting storylines in the comics. I just thought he was just some D-list villain that was underused. Now I'm interested in looking at his wiki and actually looking to see what books have those interesting storylines to buy. Both Copperheads seem to have interesting story and now I will definitely like to see what version they would come up with in the new 52. I only knew him in JLU and he was used poor there. So, thanks Tony for the new gain knowledge! :-)

What is it about G-Man's voice? I would listen to him read the paper. The boring sections!!

Great video! I really enjoy hearing about the history of characters that I haven't personally gotten to read about in comics.

This has me intensely curious about the golden age comic, some of those panels were puzzling! I'm glad that you were able to do this video Tony, they're always fantastic.

I really liked Sean McKeever's Terror Titans mini. Clock King was such a monster in that. Seeing this video makes me wanna pick up the Manhunter series as well.

Thank you, I learned a lot.

I wonder why they changed the character so radically, even turning the male version into a woman! I am curious to find out if this will be explained, either in the game or perhaps in the comics.

Is Catwoman in Origins? Because honestly the way the new character looks and moves, it looks like they just reskinned Catwoman.

@alwaysbeclothing: None of that was Golden Age, it's off by about 20 years and nearly at the end of the Silver Age - and that's just the first appearance.

Anyway, I think this new more slippery, lithe Copperhead makes a lot more sense with the serpentine namesake than some big buff guy.

I would listen to @g_man read comics. Or better yet I would watch of video of G-Man reading the comic while images from the comic were being shown. And he should call it Preview Theater. Get on it Andy Bauman!

I would rather have seen the (male) Copperhead in Batman: Arkham Origins. If they wanted to use female assassins, Lady Shiva, Cheshire, and a number of other characters would have been better than reinventing a former character.

I've always liked Copperhead and thought he would have been a great villain in the Arkham series. It has been implied that a male Copperhead exists.

Hmmm. I thought for sure Tony was going to do Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. Guess it would be safer to do that one closer to the new movies. Good job on this one G-Mandarin. Only things I know about Copperhead comes from the Justice League cartoon.

"...in 3 minutes you will be an expert on him."? Copperhead's a female.
