Accidentally locked in a room with a Unix C programming project for three days, an unnamed CS grad student emerged forever twisted by the experience. Blaming a fellow student for the experience, he took on the identity of Captain Coredump... and was promptly defeated by Cliche Dude in the early days of the LNH. His hatred of the fellow student was then transfered to net.heroes in general, and thus a crusade against the LNH began.

His most successful tactic led to the crashing of the LNH's intelligent computer during the so-called Cosmic Plot Device Caper, nearly resulting in the obliteration of the LNH by Doctor Killfile. Since then, he's mostly shown up as a recurring member of the Brotherhood of Net.Villains.

His legacy seems to have been passed on to another; see Captain Coredump II. However, he has also been spotted trying to bedevil The Core LNH...

According to RACC Presents Volume 1 #4, Macroman had faced a villain named Colonel Coredump in the 1980s; whether he is an earlier version of the first Captain Coredump or a predecessor is unknown.
