If all you have to go about the DC universe is the cartoons you saw as a kid like me, then you’d know that The Justice League TV showed featured the villain Copperhead. In the show, he was sort of a tacky villain that wore a silly snake suit and hissed at things while having seemingly no real powers except the ability to slide around, poison things (maybe?), and hiss some more.
Comic-Con is saying no to that iteration of Copperhead, showing off the now villainess as one of the 8 assassins coming after Batman in Batman: Arkham Origins. The trailer above shows a new female Copperhead that continues to hiss and slither and poisons, but with the added addition of being a woman. I’m not going to lie when I say I find this for the better as the DCAU Copperhead was hilariously lame and the new sultry assassin is at least more threatening than the cartoon (I don’t know about the comics, I don’t read those).
Of the confirmed assassins hired by Black Mask, Copperhead now joins Dead Shot and Deathstroke with the rest yet to be revealed. Here’s hoping they each get cinematic trailers, because I’m really enjoying these.
