History:

(Exiles#89 - BTS (fb)) - The Serpent Society killed their Earth's Spider-Man the year before they fought the Exiles.

(Exiles#89) - The dimension traveling Exiles came to Earth-27537, where the Serpent Society was attempting to set off a "venomizer." The Exiles apparently won the fight between the two teams when Morph transformed into a mass of serpents and contained the Society; Diamondback was unable to reach the device to set it off.

Comments: Created by Tony Bedard (writer), Jim Calafiore (penciler), Mark McKenna (inker), Sean Ryan (editor).

   The Exiles are generally sent to worlds in dire peril, where they resolve the difficulty (occasionally in a non-obvious manner), and then teleport away again. With that in mind, the role of the Society in this universe and their position after the Exiles departed could be just about anything.

   The identity of two Society members remains unclear. One is in the yellow cloak in the upper right in the main image (possibly Sidewinder?), and the other is the bald person (woman?) in the image seen here to the left.

   This story was really just a brief two-page aside in the main story of this issue; only those two pages dealt with Earth-27537 and this Serpent Society.

   Needless to say, the Society and its members here have very close analogs on Earth-616 (the "main" Marvel Earth) as the Serpent Society: Anaconda, Bushmaster, Cobra (King Cobra), Cottonmouth, Death Adder, Diamondback, and Rattler.
