A member of the Serpent Society
Appearing more snake than man, Bushmaster has the lower body of a serpent but with a man’s head. His arms are clearly robotic and can extend foot-long blades from concealed housings. Despite his snake-like body, Bushmaster can move extremely fast across open ground, and can even leap great distances by coiling himself like a spring before jumping. His blades are typically coated in paralytic poison, and his bionic arms are far stronger than those of a normal human.
Quincy McIver was born on a Caribbean island and grew into an accomplished thief. He became a quadruple amputee when he lost his arms and legs in a boating accident while trying to evade the police underwater. Shortly later, the Roxxon Oil Company equipped him with bionic arms and a snake-like tail in the place of the lower half of his body. Some years later, Sidewinder enlisted Bushmaster to join the criminal trade union known as the Serpent Society. Bushmaster was grateful for the unity and the steady employment, and he has been a member ever since.
