Standard electrode potentials and chemical reactivity

Problem

Except copper, all other transition metals of the 3d series show negative values of EA0(MA2+/M). Electrode potential values depend on sublimation, ionisation and hydration enthalpies.
Based on this, why do you think does copper behave this way?
