Cooper Culman is a character in the Jurassic Shark film. The same character also appeared in Island of Doom: Jurassic Park, a film that was cancelled and later replaced by Jurassic Shark. The character was transitioned from one film to another.
Island of DoomEdit
Cooper makes his debut in the Island of Doom film when he is invited by Nathan Nash to come on a plane trip to Isla Sorna. When he hears of this, he decides to bring tons of water and Nerf guns on the trip. He planned to stick with Udesky and Nash while on the trip as well.
Upon arriving at the island - Cooper, Udesky and Nash head into the forests of the island to search for anything that may prove as intrustion. When they hear a Spinosaurus faintly roar, Nash and Udesky flee. However, Cooper heads further in to look into the situation - but comes face-to-face with the Spinosaurus. Cooper runs out of the forest, across the field and onto the plane's runway. As he attempts to signal the plane to slow down, the Spinosaurus runs over and devours Cooper in a single, painful bite.
Cooper also appears in the Jurassic Shark film, heading to Dan Bruines's house. There, he greets Dan Bruines and meets Drake Matthews. When Dan goes inside to eat dinner, he briefly fights Drake, but soon stops, confirming his participation in the hunt before leaving. The following day, he briefly returned to ask Dan if they were beginning the hunt, but Dan said that they weren't, and Cooper angrily left.
Several days after the hunt began, Cooper and his partner Jeff Stanton went hunting while the other hunters took a break. For the first two days, they encountered the shark and managed to escape alive. On the third day, the shark killed Jeff Stanton, despite Cooper's minor efforts to stop it. Cooper then went into hiding, shooting wooden boards for targets. At one point, Cooper heard Drake calling for him, and before he went looking for Drake, the shark snuck up behind him and chased him a short distance before cornering and killing him.
- Cooper's death in Island of Doom purposely resembled that of Cooper's death in Jurassic Park III. His death in Jurassic Shark was loosely based upon it.
