Darkwing Duck Wiki
Joe Books 02 - Muckduck takes form

Muckduck is an entity that consists entirely out of trash and goo. He is an enemy of Darkwing Duck.



It is implied that Muckduck is a mutant who did not start as a person, but rather formerly existed as non-living garbage. Unlike other fluid-bodied individuals, such as Liquidator and Yucky Duck, Muckduck is not inclined to a humanoid shape and is perfectly content appearing as regular junk. He might not be capable of talking.


As garbage, Muckduck likes to surround himself with garbage.


Muckduck's base color is a sickly brown. He mostly manifests as a puddle of gunk with various discarded items sticking out, but can take an identifiable form when it suits him. The effort tends to stay limited to his face, which is a duck's with a blubber beard.


Joe Books comics[]

Darkwing Duck is only just back in action when Muckduck joins his rogues' gallery. "Crisis on Infinite Darkwings, Part 1" Some time thereafter, Muckduck becomes incarcerated in the new maximum security jail in St. Canard and part of the tour display set up for the St. Canard School for Spirited Youngsters. Along with all other inmates, he is freed from his cell by Negaduck to hunt down a locked-in Darkwing. "Orange Is the New Purple, Part 1" Muckduck remains in his cell until the caped crusader enters through the garbage chute, at which point he takes form around him and grabs him. Darkwing succeeds in escaping, but with the sapient trash right after him. As fate would have it, they enter a hallway in which Ammonia Pine is just done waxing the floors. Darkwing glides past her while Muckduck collides with the cleaning lady, neutralizing the both of them. "Orange Is the New Purple, Part 2"
