Captain Skunkbeard was the disguise of Biff Wellington.
Captain Skunkbeard, as his name implies, has a long scraggily beard marked with a white streak. He wears a red pirate hat and a large red greatcoat. Despite being a withered zombie, he is nonetheless rather robust and intimidatingly large.
Captain Skunkbeard is an archetypal pirate captain: an audacious, vicious, cruel and greedy bully. He does, however, have a superstitious streak and gets nervous when faced with something he does not understand. The Captain seems to hold his crew in high esteem, and they in turn seem fanatically devoted to him.

He was hypnotized by Mr. Mysterio to believe he was the reincarnation of the old pirate and that he needed a meteor to go back in time. Actually Mysterio wanted the meteor because it was solid gold.

- The official name "skunk" was not widely used for the creature (Mephitis mephitis) until the late 18th century. As a (presumably) Carribean Pirate, Skunkbeard's heyday would have been at least fifty years before anyone knew what a skunk was. (Note: As it is revealed the character was an invention of Wellington and Mysterio in the modern time, this may be moot)
- The term "Bermuda Triange" was first coined in 1964. Again, far later than an authentic Carribean Pirate would have heard of the term (see Quotes).
