The Skipper was the Captain of the Submarine Sea Wolf who met with Nick Fury and his Howling Commandos on several occasions during World War II,[1] as well as delivering them to their reunion mission during the Korean War.

He was later transferred to the Marines, where he founded his own commando unit, the Leatherneck Raiders, which are said to have been modelled after the Howling Commandos.

During the war, he was once attacked by American agents because they mistook him for gun-runner Jake Malloy, who looked exactly like Savage. As a consequence, Savage shaved off his trademark beard.

Years later, Savage gave a eulogy at Thunderbolt Ross's funeral.[2]
