Lady Serpent was a criminal who was obsessed with
stealing gems. After being captured by the Black Terror, she escaped
prison and captured Black Terror at the threat of Kid Terror's life.
However, Lady Serpent found the Terror attractive and kept him alive to become
her mate and partner in crime. Unfortunately for her, Black Terror was able to
resist her hypnotic powers and he turned the tide, capturing Lady Serpent once
more. After that, Lady Serpent escaped once more and attempted to hijack
a relief ship bound for Europe, so she could set up a headquarters in the Caribbean.
However, she was once again being foiled by the Terror.

Lady Serpent was able to hypnotize anyone who looked her in the eye and her
power over her victims was strong enough to force them to commit murder
(although some strong willed individuals, such as the Black Terror, were able
to resist her commands). She was also known for her command over
serpents, which served as deadly minions. She had two pet vipers named Mogu
In addition to these abilities, Lady Serpent was a criminal mastermind who
often employed a gang of thugs, including her getaway driver Mike and an
innocent looking old lady named Hulga. Lady Serpent was also a cold blooded murderer and

own men in the back before letting them be captured. She carried a variety
of weapons including tommy guns, handguns and daggers coated in snake
venom. She was a dangerous hand-to-hand combatant.
