The Captain is a parody superhero that appears in the Nextwave comic series. He is a fouled-mouth, cynical and hard-drinking superhero. He wears in civilian clothes like the rest of the team. More specifically he wears sneakers, a trenchcoat, camouflage pants and a t-shirt with a black star.
Little is known about his past. What we do know may not be true since the comic Civil War: Battle Damage Report claims the team might have had their mind and memories altered. He claims to be "from ☠☠☠☠ Brooklyn". He was born while his mother was listening Roxy Music's Avalon. His mother hanged his teddy bear leading him to hate teddy bears even to this day. As an adult, he was drunkenly walking around Brooklyn when two aliens, Spa-Fon and Squa-Tront, gave him with the power of "the Heartstar of the space between the galaxies" to make Brooklyn a better place. However, he mistook them for leprechauns and attacked them.
He became a superhero for unknown reason (claims it was "for the mask" despite him not wearing one in the entire series). He became Captain ☠☠☠☠ ("☠☠☠☠" being a censored cuss word so bad that Captain America beat up and shoved soap in his mouth). Then, he tried the names Captain Kerosene, Captain Marvel, Captain Avalon, Captain Avenger, Captain Ultra, Captain Universe, Captain L. Ron, Captain Ron and Captain Power, but had to give them up since other people already took them before him. He eventually had to pay a "marine-looking melon farmer" for his current name. A text box claims that the Captain is not a captain of anything. According to his fellow Nextwave member Aaron Stack, Captain cannot remember his real name and uses Captain as his name.
He joined Highest Anti-Terrorism Effort (H.A.T.E.)'s superhero group the Nextwave. However, he and the rest of the team went rogue when it turned out H.A.T.E. was working for terrorists known as the Beyond Corporation. He helped the team defeat the Beyond Corporation and H.A.T.E.
The Captain has a "generic set of super-hero abilities". He has super strength, super durability, flight and super vision. He has been shown fight the Godzilla-like Fin Fang Foom and even managed to brake one of Fin's fingers with his bare hands. However, when was trying to get his name, he was seen getting beaten up by multiple people. Alcohol does not hinder his super powers although he can still get drunk.
