Little is known of Davis Lawfers' history before he joined a group of snake-themed villains organized by the terrorist the Viper to infiltrate the criminal organization known as the Serpent Society so she could take it over. Along with Black Racer, Puff Adder, and Fer-de-Lance, Copperhead took part in a series of robberies of casinos in Las Vegas. Copperhead was apparently the field leader of this group. Although the group battled and were captured by Captain America (then known as The Captain) and his allies, their mission achieved its objective when they were sprung from jail by the Serpent Society's leader Sidewinder and offered membership.
When the Viper attacked the Society's Serpent Citadel, Copperhead battled the Society, and then The Captain and his allies again. Copperhead briefly remained with the group when its leadership was taken over by King Cobra for some time before quietly disappearing from the ranks of the Society.
