    Raymond "Ray" Manchester, also known as the superhero Captain Man, is the deuteragonist in Henry Danger. He is Swellview's savior and guardian of the city, having saved the day many times. But as he grew older, he realized his job started to become "a lot to handle alone" and he "needed a sidekick". Therefore, he hired Henry Hart to be his sidekick, "Kid Danger", and they have been fighting crime together ever since. He is played by Cooper Barnes.


    Why He Wasn't Okay

    1. Being a superhero, he's supposed to save Swellview by fighting crime, but ends up destroying the city by fighting crime; people still love him and Kid Danger. How are we supposed to think that he's a hero?
    2. His catchphrase, "I'm okay!", can get on your nerves as he says it in almost every episode. WE GET IT! YOU'RE INDESTRUCTIBLE!
    3. He is very selfish, egotistical, immature, and cannot handle not getting his way. Plus when he screams, his screaming is really irritating.
    4. His superhero persona, Captain Man, is pretty generic.
    5. Sometimes, he could care less about Henry, such as when he fired him just because Charlotte found out that he was Kid Danger.
    6. He doesn't have a believable friendship with Schwoz as they both treat each other harshly, argue a lot, and make fun of each other.
    7. Even after getting character development in seasons 4-5, he became unlikable again in The Adventures of Kid Danger and still has his original personality at times in the original series.
    8. His reason for hating celery is really laughable and arbitrary. He hates it because he thinks it ruined tuna salad.

    Redeeming Qualities

    1. He massively improved in the last two seasons and Danger Force. Despite reverting back to his old self.
    2. Cooper Barnes does a good job portraying him in the original series.
      • Cooper Barnes also did a good job voicing him in The Adventures of Kid Danger.
    3. There are times where he got his comeuppance, like in the infamous "Christmas Danger", when he got arrested for breaking a "wear hairnet when serving food" rule.
    4. Deep down inside, he does love and care about Henry, Charlotte, Jasper, Schwoz, Piper, and even the Danger Force (especially Chapa) and treats them as if they were all his family.
      • He is also somewhat a good teacher and makes solid points of things as:
        1. He made a good point about Henry using his superpower to win competitions.
        2. While he is mean to Jasper, Ray also made a good point about Jasper as in Mouth Candy Japser had called them many times in the past with emergencies over ridiculous stuff.
        3. In "Twin Henrys" he was rightfully mad at Schwoz for taking a vacation without letting him know.
      • In fact, the reason why he attempted to lie about the densitizer that made him indestructible being destroyed was because he didn't want Henry to be a freak mutant like the other 3 men. He was right that Henry got a crazy side-effect in the end.
    5. Most of his selfish and immaturity is due to the fact his father never properly raising him. Plus after Ray got his powers, his dad dropped him out of school, basically forced Ray to become a superhero while missing out on things normal kids get to do at his age.

    Trivia

    • In an audition tape for Henry Danger, Captain Man's name was originally going to be called Galaxy Glen.
    • He hits on a lot of women.
    • If you look closely at Ray's left cheek, you'll see a faint scar from the fight that took place in "Tears of the Jolly Beetle" where his face was cut. This is most noticeable during the card game scene in "Spoiler Alert" but is also visible in other episodes throughout the series.
    • Henry, Charlotte, Jasper, Piper, Gooch, Schwoz, Bork, Boris, Laylani, Ray's father Carl, Winnie, Gwen, Drex, Babe Carano, Kenzie Bell, Hudson Gimble, Triple G, Brad Belcher, and Rick Twitler (formerly) are the only people who know that Ray is Captain Man.
    • He doesn't seem to really like his father.
    • As revealed in "Danger and Thunder", Captain Man knew Hank Thunderman (also known as the Superhero "Thunder Man"). However, their actual relationship is never revealed.
    • He hates celery because he thinks it ruins tuna salad.
    • He has a crush on Kris Hart.
