The Serpent Society is a criminal organization led by King Cobra.


The Serpent Society teamed up with R.A.I.D. and U.L.T.I.M.A.T.U.M. in their conflict against S.H.I.E.L.D..

King Cobra sent troops led by his subordinate Puff Adder to attack Washington, D.C. and distract S.H.I.E.L.D. while their troops moved stolen Iso-8 warheads from the R.A.I.D. base there. Maria Hill located Puff Adder and Captain America went to confront him. Falcon, who had previously fought Puff Adder, urged Rogers to be swift and not let Puff Adder get a hold of him. Following this advice, Rogers was able to defeat him. He took him into custody and Black Widow interrogated him and persuaded him to reveal the location of the warheads.[1]

Behind the Scenes

  • Marvel Studios initially announced Captain America: Civil War as Captain America: Serpent Society as a joke during the announcement of the film slate for Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige stated: "We had this great idea because Civil War's first up, right? But we don't blow our wad on the presentation with Civil War right at the front of it. A guy named Mike Pasciullo had the idea to put Serpent Society on there, and I thought it was awesome and hilarious. A part of me thought, 'Are people going to love Serpent Society and think that'd be really cool? Now it's on the radar."[2]
