Among his other many villainous exploits, Viper was a member of the short-lived super-villain team "Crime Wave," which was organized by the Cowled Commando (secretly NYPD police sergeant Brian Muldoon) as a way to push the city to provide a stronger police force. Crime Wave appeared in Captain America (vol. 1) #s 157-159.

In Captain America (vol. 1) #163, three serpent-themed villains (Viper, the Eel, and Cobra) banded together to form the "Serpent Squad." Their goal was to get revenge on Captain America and the Falcon for past defeats.

A second incarnation of the Serpent Squad appeared in Captain America #s 180-182, comprised of Viper (Dixon), the Eel, Princess Python, Cobra and Krang. The group tried to use the Serpent Crown to take over the world. In this group, the original Viper (Jordan Dixon) was replaced by a savage new up-and-comer of a super-villain: Madame Hydra. She killed Viper so she could become the new "Viper," and she assumed his place in the Serpent Squad.
