Platform of Origin:
Arcade (CP System)
First Chapter Appearance:
Chapter 7 (PXZ2)
Captain Commando was the original mascot of Capcom (CAP-tain COM-mando). He is also a main character in the 1991 arcade game of the same name where he is the hero and leader of the "Commando Team".
Leader of the "Commando Team", a group of brave warriors that combats crime everywhere in space.
His powerful physical gifts are matched by a clear-headed intelligence that makes him an excellent leader. Together with the other team members, he defeated the criminal organization led by the arch-criminal Scumocide.
He is able to shoot electricity and fire from the "power gloves" on his hands. He also can wear various pieces of equipment, including gauntlets that give him excellent punching power, a super alloy Captain Ceramic chest protector that confers incredible heat resistance, and goggles that automatically cross-reference enemy facial data with intergalactic databases of known criminals.
Captain Commando also appeared in Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes and Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes. He also appears Namco x Capcom along with the rest of his team: Ginzu (Sho), Baby Head (Hoover), and Mack (Jennety), along with Guy from Final Fight who was paired with Ginzu.
Captain's theme is a remix of Stage 1 (City), the first level in Captain Commando
Captain uses many of his attacks, including Captain Fire and Captain Corridor, and even calls on help from other Capcom allies.
