Captain Fray (Capitão Feio, in portuguese) is one of main enemies of Brazilian comics in the series Monica's Gang. Currently, he is arrested by the Department National of Mysteries and Catastrophes (DE.NA.MY.CA, or DI.NA.MI.CA, in portuguese).


He was once Smudge's uncle, but changed sides and decided to be as dirty as his nephew. He lives in the underworld of the sewer system and leads a large army of "sewer creatures", monsters made of dirt.[1]

He also has superpowers: Apart from flying, he can release dirt beams, move objects from a distance, or create objects using dust. Water works on him just like kryptonite works on Superman: Once he's wet, all his powers are gone.

His dream is to make the entire world a dirtier place to live, and also to rule it. However, Monica and her friends always find a way to stop him.

Occasionally, Captain expresses feelings of empathy towards Smudge, once saving him from contact with water. On the other hand, there are strips in which he wants to destroy Smudge so he main claim the title of 'Dirtiest being in the universe'.
