It is hard to believe that a guy, even a villain, that is responsible for the absolutely iconic cover you see below would be so hard to find images of, but there you have it - everybody likes to look at Copperhead, but nobody really cares about the character. Remember the "Serpent Society" we looked at a while ago? Well, Copperhead is one of the reasons it exists. Are you old enough to remember Billy Crystal's "Fernando" character from SNL - "It is better to look good than to feel good." That's what we got here. An empty suit that just begs for iconic covers.
The dumb blond of villains, Copperhead just looks too menacing to give up on completely, but then....
Coppsie does not operate alone much anymore and with good reason. They could send out Robin's younger cousin "Just Hatched" to handle this one - but he does look, really, really good.
