Cottonmouth ruled the drug trade in New York City until he was brought down hard by Luke Cage.
On the surface, Cornell Stokes is a criminal that runs the drug trade in New York City. But when someone crosses him, he becomes something far deadlier… At times a fearsome snakelike beast, this villain has some venom in his bite. He is Cottonmouth.
As Cottonmouth, Cornell Stokes has asserted himself as a crime boss over several of New York City’s dealings, having hands in its drug trade and human trafficking rings. It’s often fallen to Luke Cage to stop Cottonmouth and his illegal activities.
