Mack the Knife, known as Jennety (ジェネティー, Jenetii) in Japan, and referred to as the Mummy Commando on the character select screen, is a character from the beat 'em up game Captain Commando. Mack is a mummy-like alien from outer space and a member of the Commando Team, portrayed with a cool, calm and collected demeanor.

Profile Edit

Name originEdit

His English name comes from the song of the same name, made popular in the late-1950's by Bobby Darin, and his Japanese name is derived from the word "genetic". He is also known as the "Mummy Commando" in the character select screen.

Powers and abilitiesEdit

As weapons, he uses sub-sonic knives which melt any enemy he hits. His Special Move is the "Spinning Attack" (スピニングアタック), a sure-killing technique. Spinning round like a top, his bandages lash his enemies like whips. His Dash Attacks are "Double Trouble" (クロスアタック, "Cross Attack" in Japan) and "Sky Assault" (ジャンピングアタック, "Jumping Attack" in Japan). Double Trouble sticks his enemy with both knives and Sky Assault is an airborne version of Double Trouble. Mack can also grab his enemy and either stick them or throw them.

Other things he has are the "Captain Cap", the "Genetic Bandage", the "Genetic Knife" (simply "Knife" in Japan, said to be "made in genetic") and the "Gravity Controllers." His Captain Cap is his hat, which is a souvenir from his first meeting with Captain Commando. His Genetic Bandage is life-sustaining equipment for his survival on Earth. His Genetic Knife melts all matter, and the Gravity Controllers are his shoes that adjust the gravitational pull to where it's best for battles.

In Marvel vs. Capcom, Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and Namco x Capcom, the four members of Commando Team combined can use the attacks "Captain Storm" and "Captain Sword". In Namco x Capcom, he has two varieties of the Spinning Attack and a "Knife Combo".

Other appearances Edit

Mack has made minor appearances in Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes, Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes, Capcom World 2 and the SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighters series.

He also appeared as a playable character in Namco x Capcom teamed up with Baby Head.
