|As a result of the 2011 initiative, the New 52, the entire line of DC characters was relaunched, incorporating properties belonging to the company's imprints: Wildstorm, Milestone, and Vertigo. As such, elements of this character's history have been altered in some way from the previous incarnation's. For a complete list of all versions of this character, see our disambig.|
Copperhead first appears battling Black Canary in Baltimore. He is initially able to overpower Black Canary, due to not having ears, which rendered her screams useless. He is later blinded by a flashing billboard and defeated.
Copperhead was later recruited by a mysterious person to join the Secret Society of Super Villains in order to take advantage of the growing superhero community. After Catwoman had knocked out Professor Ivo, Copperhead appeared and constricted Catwoman into unconsciousness. Copperhead is then ordered to clean up Catwoman's corpse along side Signalman. However, it is then revealed that Catwoman is actually a disguised Martian Manhunter, who quickly defeats the two villains. Copperhead is then apprehended along with several other members of the Secret Society.
During the villains' reign under the Crime Syndicate, in the Secret Society's battle with Lex Luthor's Injustice League, Copperhead was killed by Deathstroke as the latter's signal that he had defected from the Secret Society to the Injustice League for the sake of his continued livelihood.
- Copperhead was created by Bob Haney and Bob Brown, first appearing in Brave and the Bold Vol 1. However, in the rebooted Prime Earth continuity his first appearance as part of the DC Universe is in Geoff Johns and Jesus Saiz's New 52 Justice League series.
