It is presumed that COPPERHEAD is native to or otherwise intimately familiar with the Florida Everglades. Intelligence sources venture a guess that he raced speedboats in high stakes races in Monaco and Japan. His major weakness is gambling. Odds are that he got started by placing bets on his own races. Apparently he compounded his folly by selling his services to the COBRA organization in hopes of paying off his bookies.
GUNG HO says: "Sure, I know the type. They're all around the Gulf Coast. Trash. Drifters. They can drive a swamp buggy like the devil himself, rebuild a V-8 with a coat hanger and spit, fight all night and raise Cain 'till the cock crows. They got a heart full of gimme and a mouth full o' much obliged..."
No variations of Copperhead (v4) are known to exist.
Copperhead (v4) was created using the torso, waist, and arms of Roadblock (v16) (2007) with a new head and legs.
