Later emerging as a pimp, Cottonmouth worked under the West Side Highway at a time the Hand was policing Manhattan's streets by order of their then leader Daredevil (Matthew Murdock). Three ninjas attacked and were about to seriously injure one of Cottonmouth's girls, but she was saved by Power Man (Victor Alvarez), who then broke nearly all of Cottonmouth's teeth. Returning with a new set of dagger-like teeth made from surgical steel and coated with eighteen karat gold, Cottonmouth sought revenge but his partner Nightshade (Tilda Johnson) forbade it; she instead offered Power Man a job in her criminal organization but he refused. When Iron Fist (Danny Rand) arrived to rescue Power Man, Power Man destroyed Cottonmouth's teeth again. During Manhattan's "Spider-Island" epidemic, Cottonmouth may have orchestrated a prison break, bringing Nightshade's super villain Flashmob into conflict with Misty Knight's Heroes for Hire.
