Captain Rectitude possesses superhuman strength (about class 90), durability and stamina. He is able to fly under his own power, and can fire plasma blasts from the heart shaped emblem on his chest.
Captain Rectitude was originally an employee of Jasper Keaton. Keaton created a genetic research division and empowered two of his employees, creating Captain Rectitude and the Abominatrix. What exactly was done to Rectitude is unclear, but it was explained that his normal biological drives were subliminated into an anti-smut instinct.
Keaton used the Abominatrix to kidnap Louise 'Weezi' Mason, hoping that Mason would know the whereabouts of a nuclear warhead nicknamed Rosebud. Mason, as the Blonde Phantom, and part of the All-Winners squad in the forties, attempted to prevent a gangster named Dutch Malone from stealing the warhead. Keaton wanted the warhead so he could blackmail the US Banking Senate Committe to give him control of Savings and Loans. Keaton learned after Mason was kidnapped, that she was unaware of the warheads location.
The She-Hulk, trying to rescue Mason, battled Captain Rectitude and the Abominatrix on several occasions. Mason's daughter, now the Blonde Phantom, accidentally revealed the location of Rosebud. She-Hulk was able to temporarily incapacitate Captain Rectitude and the Abominatrix in time to hurl Rosebud into the empty desert. When it detonated, it actually destroyed Keaton's resort headquarters.
Captain Rectitude was later seen in New York city, after the passing of the Superhuman Registration Act. He was arrested in front of the Daily Bugle and is presumably still in custody.
