Alias: Comet Guy
Real name: Unknown (but likely… Comet Guy)
Nicknames: Hooter, J. Gander.
Occupation: Ambassador from the Planet Murtz
Darkwing Duck (ally, mentor)
Comet Guy hails from Murtz, a planet inhabited by Superheroes, all of which are pretty Super-stupid. He is not very bright and so far has failed in his career as a superhero. As a result he has come to Earth searching for their greatest champion, “a crime-fighter, renowned throughout the galaxy” in order to seek their guidance. It just so happens that he runs into Darkwing, and begrudgingly, the caped crusader offers to show the big lug a thing or two about fighting evil-doers.
Comet Guy’s super-weakness is that when he hears the ring of a bell he gets an irresistible urge to dance… often in a pink ballet tutu. Steelbeak uses this to his advantage in “Smarter Than a Speeding Bullet” which produces some rather hilarious results.
Facts about Comet Guy:
- Upon first seeing him, Darkwing describes Comet Guy as a “bizarre-looking Alien Monstrosity” and a “peculiar looking thing”. Humans are obviously not commonplace in Darkwing’s world.
- It later turns out the “crime-fighter renowned throughout the galaxy” was actually Gizmoduck. Comet Guy thought Darkwing was Giz the entire time.
- Smarted Than a Speeding Bullet
- Planet of the Capes
