Captain Sunshine (Chuck Scarsdale)
Henchman Zero (Deceased)Red Mantle (in the 1960s)
Desmond was the original Captain Sunshine and fought Red Mantle in the 60's, which was revealed in Every Which Way But Zeus. His Wonder Boy was Chuck Scarsdale, whom he trained to become the next Captain Sunshine.
Desmond would then become Chuck's butler when he retired. He was eventually captured by Henchman 0 and forced to fight other Henchman and Sidekicks for survival. It was also revealed that he writes to the Guild frequently about the rights of Henchmen and Sidekicks.
- Unlike his successor, Desmond seems more understanding of how the Guild works and what he can do and what he cannot.
- Him passing on the title of "Captain Sunshine" to his "Wonder Boy" is similar to the title of Dread Pirate Roberts from the book The Princess Bride
