Cornell Cottonmouth was one of New York City's leading crime bosses. His criminal enterprise controlled most of the heroin trade in the City.
When Willis Stryker wanted to frame Carl Lucas (who would go on to become the superhero Luke Cage) for drug trafficking, he stole heroin from Cottonmouth's organization. One of Cage's informants, Flea, eventually discovered this information, but was killed by Cottonmouth's men.
Cottonmouth then tried to recruit Cage into his organization. Cage accepted as a ploy to bring Cottonmouth to justice. To prove himself, he was sent to retrieve a shipment of heroin that had been stolen by Boss Morgan's men. After having infiltrated the organization, Cage gathered enough evidence to bring them down and inform the authorities.
Cottonmouth joined Nightshade's gang The Rivals. He was given a section of the city to run his business. Daredevil sent a group of Hand ninja's to attack him and his organization. But Luke Cage arrived taking out the ninja's and breaking Conttonmouth's teeth in the process.
Cottonmouth tracked down Cage with a group of corrupt cops, and beat him as best they could. Cottonmouth was about to take a bite from Cage's face when he was stopped by Nightshade. She told Cage that if he became her enforcer he would be spared. However Iron Fist came to his rescue and knocked out Cottonmouth, but Nightshade escaped.
