The Origin of Dr. Viper
He was planning to steal the formula, Commander. And when it all spilled on him, the shock to his system must’ve been too great. - Dr. N. Zyme
Dr. Zyme and his partner Dr. Elrod Purvis co-develop Viper Mutagen 368. While attempting to steal the chemical, Purvis spills it on himself and seems to die, but the flawed formula causes him to revive as Dr. Viper.
With SWAT Kats nearing its end, the mystery surrounding one of its major villains is finally solved in this flashback story.
Dr. Zyme (who was killed in “The Giant Bacteria”) and his partner Dr. Elrod Purvis co-develop Viper Mutagen 368, a regenerative growth formula that the “idealistic fool” Zyme wants to donate to Megakat City but the greedy Purvis wants to sell to the highest bidder. While attempting to steal the chemical, Purvis spills it on himself and seems to die, but the flawed formula causes him to revive as the murderous mutant we all know and hate.
And when Viper endangers Zyme, Mayor Manx, Deputy Mayor Briggs and Commander Feral with his giant mutant mosquitoes, only the SWAT Kats can rescue them all. Easily the best of the SWAT Kats shorts, this is so densely packed with characters and subplots that it easily could have been expanded to a full-length episode. But then, how could we live without “Volcanus Erupts!”? A-.

He trusts he can lead us that far down the path.
But, I can't see it.
I can see only the deal. A chance to fly again. A chance to make Feral pay.
It's now or never.
Again, I look to my friend. "Jake?"
Dark Kat too levels his gaze on Jake. "You do want to get back at the Commander, don't you?"
He finally admits what's been brewing inside even him. "Yes," he says flatly. "I'm in."
I blink at my partner's abrupt change of heart... and his tone of voice.
But, I turn to Dark Kat anyway. I blind myself again. I want this. "Alright. You got yourself a deal."
"Then, a deal it is," Dark Kat returns, offering me a hand to shake.
