    Default The Serpent Society

    Anyone else fans of this criminal organization? They seem to be one of the few villain groups in Marvel to actually get things done. Although in the past few years, they've been depicted as kind of a joke, which is sad.



    It'd be really cool to see a movie version of them in the third Captain America as supporting villains.

    I don't think they would work on film

    Massive Serpent Society fan. All they need is to not be written like jokes again and they could be huge. They're professional criminals with a decade of in universe experience of working together, they have a good range of powers and power level through the team, all they need is for a writer to acknowledge all that experience.

    There are lots of characters that people said the same thing about before, too. They don't have to be wearing the flashy, bright colored costumes in a film. Viper already appeared in Wolverine, and was very serpentine.

    I decided to just pick one, Anaconda. Cobra and Sidewinder are also cool, but Blanche is just crazy awesome. Kick superhero butt, you big beautiful woman!

    I always wanted to see them go up against the Avengers, and offer them a really tough challange.

    Peace

    They could if they were written well. They have all the potential in the world.

    I wonder why they didn't have the Midgard Serpent join.

    Since Cap doesn't really seem to deal with normal villains anymore I would not mind if they became part of Spider Man's rouges. Most of that team is custom made for a Spider Man type story. I mean these are just normal guys who want to get rich. They aren't seeking revenge or power they just want cash. Plus it would by nice to see Spider Man deal with some different types of villains once in a while.

    I would go so far as to say that they are my favourite villain group of all time. Gruenwald's run on Cap really showed how big a threat they could be, it's too bad that no writer has done much with them since. I would love to see them get a proper return as a formidable foes for an Avengers team (Ewing could do good things with them in Mighty Avengers).

    Oh, and I voted for the everyone on the list, except for Princess Python, who quit the team early on.

    The Serpent Society were fantastci during Gruenwald's run, even if they did kill my beloved MODOK (he got better). Unfortunately, nobody has handled them well since his departure. I'm looking forward to revisiting the team's early appearances in the upcoming Captain America: Society of Serpents Epic Collection book.

    That would definitely get me reading Spider-Man.

    I fear if they put them on film they would end up looking like Viper in The Wolverine whom I definitely did not like.

    Last time I remember seeing the Society was them being jobbed out to Hope before AvX.

    I think they would be a great group to combat the Avengers, the Mighty Avengers, Spider Man, Daredevil, Moon Knight or any of the street level heroes.

    Groups like these don't need a lot to be rehabilitated.
