Duck Avenger is the superhero alter-ego of Donald Duck, Disney's most famous duck. He protects the city of Duckburg from common criminals and worldwide threats to duckkind.
When the abandoned Villa Rose is left to Donald Duck, he happens upon the diary of its former owner, John Quackett, who was a famous gentleman thief and vigilante known as Fantomallard. Wanting to seek revenge over his two biggest grievances, Gladstone Gander and uncle Scrooge, he takes up Quackett's old costume and, with some gadgets from Gyro Gearloose, becomes the Diabolical Duck Avenger.
Duck Avenger later turns away from self-vindication and begins crimefighting, becoming a celebrated hero in Duckburg.
After genius Everett Ducklair skips town for a Tibetan monastery, most of his assets are bought by Scrooge, including the 150-floor Ducklair Tower. Donald is made its custodian, and he discovers that the tower actually has 151 floors. He investigates later that night as the Duck Avenger, and is swallowed by a gargoyle on the roof. He finds himself in the secret floor and comes face to face with the tower's AI, a mighty computer named One. He offers to be Duck Avenger's partner, which includes access to Ducklair's technology, including the versatile X-Transformer shield. Thus, the 151st floor becomes his new hideout, and the two work together to battle all-new villains, including hostile aliens, and time-traveling bandits.
With or without the mask, this is core Donald Duck. He is snarky, jovial, and has the temper of a raging volcano. When under his Duck Avenger persona, his cowardice is exchanged for courage, boisterous confidence, and a strong drive for justice. He knows what's right and will fight to the bitter end. He is strongly devoted to his family and no matter how much they aggravate or frustrate him, he will always be there for them, especially for his twin sister Della, her kids Huey, Dewey, and Louie. and (albeit reluctantly sometimes) his rich uncle Scrooge.

During a night out, Drake revealed to Donald while quite drunk that he had a secret crush on him. This caused a bit of a snag since Donald's boyfriend, Uno was with them. However, Donald, also drunk, decided to validate his friend's feelings and kissed him in the bathroom. They spent the next day snuggling and reaffirming their friendship while quite hungover.
Darkwing and Duck Avenger maintain a friendly rivalry as superheroes. Duck Avenger plays the more practical, no-nonsense hero to Darkwing's more theatrical antics, though he can get dramatic as well.
