Australian criminal Boomslang was ordered by the Viper (Madame Hydra) to infiltrate the Serpent Society. While not a particularly ruthless villain, Boomslang had an incredible throwing arm and excellent hand-to-hand combat skills, which made him a formidable opponent for the likes of Captain America.[1]

During his first mission, Boomslang joined Cobra and Copperhead as they poisoned Washington D.C.'s water supply, turning the citizens into horrifying snake-like creatures. He and Copperhead were quickly dispatched by Captain America, but Cobra was able to escape.[1]

Boomslang continued to serve with the Society, but when he was sent to spy on Diamondback, he was confronted by Captain America. Boomslang quickly fled the scene, but ran into a gang of teenage thugs. The gang shot Boomslang numerous times, and Captain America immediately took him to the hospital.[2]


Boomslang is an excellent hand-to-hand combatant.


Boomslang throws snake-shaped sickles he calls his "serpent-rangs."

Real name revealed in the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A to Z Hardcover Vol. 10
