The Black Serpent was a gang leader in the neighborhood of City Heights, leading an eponymous gang. A Trueborn Metahuman who had been bullied growing up for his black scaly skin and reptilian appearance, The Black Serpent was a ruthless drug dealer who pulled himself up from nothing. Using his cunning and his superhuman abilities, he carved himself a niche in City Heights.
The Black Serpent was killed by Nightfist, when the latter invaded the former’s base to steal the gang’s drug stash.
