History: Jeff Crockett was a top athlete who had become a coach at Freeville School who secretly battles crime as Captain Fight.

Comments: Created by Clark Ritchie and Rudy Palais. Captain Fight only appeared in Fight Comics #16-19, but a very different Captain Fight, this one created by Stuart Blake and a 17th or 18th century buccaneer adventurer who sailed aboard the Sea Scourge, debuted in Fight Comics #44. A few sites have conflated the two to be a single individual, but they are clearly not the same man. Perhaps, if one wanted to connect them, the pirate was an ancestor of Crockett, inspiring the wartime hero's choice of name.
