Captain America #310 (1985): 1st Serpent Society, Asp, Rattler; Steve becomes a comic book artist


As you can tell from the splash page, all the snake-related bad guys have decided to form a team… 

Except for Viper, who is a big honcho with Hydra, and Constrictor, who says he has better things to do—and actually rats the snakes out to Captain America, who then goes in to bust up the new society.  That leaves Sidewinder, Cobra, Black Mamba, Death Adder, Princess Python, Cottonmouth, Bushmaster, Diamondback, and Anaconda.  Who knew there were that many snake villains? And there are two new ones:

Rattler and The Asp.

Black Knight and Starfox appear earlier in the issue to help Cap while he’s training at Avengers Mansion.

And to shower together.


Also, in his Steve Rogers guise, he starts doing self portraits. 

Here’s the editor who hired him:


Can you guess who that editor is? 

Archie Goodwin!
