I have to honor the old Captain Commando.  He kicked so much ass, and I admired him as a kid.



Look at that shit.  Lasers blazing, HUGE medallions, long rockstar hair blown back by the force of his awesomeness.  His blingin' medallions smack you in the face with the fact that he's a decorated space-captain, and his blazing laser guns fry your ass until you admit that he's the commandingest commando of all the space commandos in the universe.  And you know he's badass when the universe huddles behind him for protection.  Just be glad you're on the universe side of that triangle-shaped portal to punishment.


What happened to him? Sad  Now he needs a ninja, a mummy, and a BABY to back him up?  And what's with that star?  He's a lowly sheriff now?  What happened to being a kickass space-captain?  I miss the old CapCom Sad

Seriously, what's with the blue shirt tucked into blue jeans thing the new CapCom's got going on? Sad



Are they even jeans?  Or is it tights with belt loops on them. Shocked

Hahah nice find on the picture of the blue shirt tucked in blue jeans.  They have to be some kind of a future jean/tights hybrid designed for and marketed to sissies.  They have too much bulk to be pure tights.

I wish I could find a picture of the transition CapCom.  Does anyone have it?  He was airbrushed with short, nicely combed brown hair, and a space monkey on his shoulder.  I wonder what made him decide it was time for a change, and to trade in his guns/medallions for a space monkey and a mama's boy haircut.  Then he thinks wearing sunglasses and going blond makes up for the cool he lost?

I am pretty sure he's wearing a onesie... you know, like a ski outfit.

No way!  Look at the ridge above his belt.  If he's wearing a onesie, it's made to fake the top of pants, which is more lameness than I'm willing to put on CapCom.  Agh, I wish I had all of my NES boxes still, so I could scan a picture of the 2nd version of Captain Commando.

Man!  Cap Commando has a gun made of gold, and another made of chrome.  Bad ass!

Oooo I didn't even know there was a previous version of CaptCom.
That said I was a big fan of the 1991 game. I especially liked the custom deaths inflicted by  Hanzo and Mac the knife.

Is it from a manual?  We could look through scans.

For some reason I thought it was on the back of the Megaman 2 box, but now I think you may be right.  It could very well be in the back of a manual.  I do know that it was in color.  The 2nd Captain Commando was introduced at the end of the Challenge Series, so he only showed up on a few games.  I believe Megaman 3 was released after the Challenge Series ended.

It showed a picture of Captain Commando with his space monkey, and a letter to you about how special a challenge series game was, or something.  Then it had his signature at the bottom of the letter.

The original Captain Commando was a pale, Bowie-esque space rockstar. Then he cut his hair to get a job (I can only assume the monkey was his career advisor). Now he is back, owning his own company at the age of 47, rich from the lucrative IPO: all fake tan, bleached hair and steroids, flashing hundreds at a local bar, trying to pick up some girl young enough to be his daughter by bragging that he's friends with a purple ninja.

What happened to you, Captain Commando?

I found your transitional Captain Commando:



That monkey has one sick goatee.

It was on the second page of the Mega Man 2 instruction book found here.

Nice one, Matt!  Now let's see the evolution:

Derek, m'boy, your resourcefulness and creativity always amazes me. It's like you do a google image search and photoshop (or some other shop) something in, every chance ya' fuck'n get.

It's inspiring.

Hahah awesome!  Thanks MattC!  I wonder where the color version could have existed, if it was on the second page in the MM2 manual.  That confucius-monkey was blue! By the way, it's much cooler that he tells you who he is by his initials on his huge medallions than by his third-grade-cursive signature.

So, first he starts out flying space ships and saving the universe by act of lasering, then he gets a job as a plane pilot carrying a spacemonkey around?  I bet he met an exotic alien chick on one of his universe-saving missions.  He saved her solar system, they got it on, then got married.  She then moved her stuff into his space ship.  Then she started complaining about how he doesn't buy her nice things.  Saving the universe doesn't bring in the big bucks, so he sold his medallions and gold/silver guns to buy her these new space-shoes she'd been eyeing.  Well, more than eyeing.  She'd been yelling the brand name at him as part of a long list of things about the quality of their life that could "improve".  She couldn't even get a pedicure for her precious darling space-monkey, Pupu.  So she demanded that Commando get a job with steady pay and benefits.

He got a job as a plane pilot on this swank planet she saw on a fashion show on space-TV.  With his steady income, she went out shopping regularly, and made Commando babysit her darling Pupu daily so she could carry more bags.  It was then that Captain Commando got the phone call about his videogame deal that he'd been secretly working on getting.  When he found out how much it would pay, he divorced her ass, signed the space-contract, and flew to the studio producing the game.  The rest is history.

Man, working man Cap Commando looks more like a bad ass astronaut, if it weren't for the fighter jet and helmet.  That's what we need more of today.  Bad ass astronauts.
