Boomslang of the Serpent Society (Marvel Comics)

Boomslang


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Context

Boomslang is one of the most minor members of Marvel Comics’ criminal alliance the Serpent Society. He’s mostly seen in the background, and seldom gets to do anything.


Background

  • Real Name: Unrevealed.
  • Marital Status: Unrevealed.
  • Known Relatives: None.
  • Group Affiliation: Serpent Society.
  • Base Of Operations: Mobile.
  • Height: 6’ Weight: 170 lbs.
  • Eyes: Unrevealed Hair: Unrevealed


Powers and Abilities

Boomslang is athletic and a good hand-to-hand combatant.

He’s also highly skilled with thrown weapons, and has a large number of serpent-shaped throwing sticks. He throws them with enough strength and accuracy to knock out normal persons.

But all in all, he’s out of his depth against actual super-heroes.


History

Boomslang is a former agent of the Viper (Ophelia Sarkissian). He then became a Serpent Society operative. But even among the Serpent Society, he’s a third-stringer.

He also seems rather unlucky. Boomslang generally gets knocked out as a background detail, and is likely to end up wounded. A fight with Wolverine ended in a swift defeat and a broken arm. Later, when fleeing from Captain America, he ran into a street gang that immediately opened fire and gravely wounded him.

Thick Australian accent, Bruce.


Quotes

“Dream on, myte ! If there’s any wreckin’ t’be done ’ereabouts, it’ll be me serpent-rangs what do it !”


DC Universe History

Traditionally, those guys are costumer enforcers of the Kobra cult.

Boomslang could also happen to be Captain Boomerang’s kid brother, who decided to defend his brother’s heritage after his death.
