Facing the Kurgan
Inter-dimensional travel is bound to have side effects. For Hook, the shift in dimensions causes rapid aging. Hook thus determines himself to prolong his lifespan by defeating the deadly Kurgan. Hook sics his pirate crew on the immortal warrior, but he defeats them handily. Hook jumps into the fray, but the Kurgan disarms him. As Hook reaches for his rapier, the Kurgan blocks his arm with his sword. But the Kurgan forgets Hook's eponymous hook, for Hook slashes his enemy's wrist with it. The Kurgan and Hook both recover and prepare to take up arms again. But Jadis arrives, kills the Kurgan, and teleports Hook and his crew back to the animated universe.
Facing His Fears
Hook is delighted with this recent turn of events. No sooner does he arrive, though, when the unexpected arrival of Sarousch startles him. Hook initially holds nothing but contempt for the magician and his men, but Saroush reveals his goal: hiring Hook for the navy of King Ratcliffe. Hook considers the offer. Just then, Professor Screweyes emerges, intent on driving Hook and Sarousch insane. Mok, Screweyes's employer, has not forgotten Hook's role in the demon's fall during the previous war. Using his fear machine, Screweyes conjures an image of the crocodile who ate Hook's hand. But Hook has gotten beyond his fear. The same cannot be said of Sarousch; the magician trembles in fear upon seeing the clown that scarred his childhood. Hook, brandishing his rapier, approaches Screweyes, but the Professor escapes on his zeppelin. Hook then formally joins Ratcliffe's forces, while Sarousch recovers.
The Battle of England
Captain Hook helps defend Ratcliffe's regime against the attacking armies of Admiral Zhao. When Zhao comes to assassinate Ratcliffe, Hook knocks him down with a flurry of attacks.

Disney Villains War
Disney Villains War Backstory
Hook was born under the name James Killian Jones from the relation of the gypsy witch Tia Dalma and the pirate captain Davy Jones. When Davy lost his heart and was enslaved by Cora, Tia encountered an old foe she had been having trouble with for over three hundred years. As she was chased by this Dark One, she tapped into her god-like powers and sent her son away to safety.
Hook was then adopted into the wealthy Ratcliffe familly as they found him and decided to care for him. The Ratcliffes were a seafaring people that always enjoyed the bounties of the sea, whether they got these honestly or in dishonest ways. As the father of the family already had a son, he thought to pass his secrets on to both of them, and hoped that this would make the Ratcliffe family the most prospering family in all of England. The true born son, however, had little love for his adopted brother and always made it clear that he was not wanted. As they went to the most expensive schools of England, he never wanted to be seen with him, he refused to sit next to him, and never had a good word out for his brother. Seeing himself as the only heir to the Ratcliffe fortune and the only one who was well enough raised, he plotted to get rid of both his father and his adopted brother in one swift stroke.
On one fateful day, Prince John, the regent lord of England, had ordered a massive fleet to lay waste to the French fleet that had kept their ships locked in their harbors. James immediately rushed to prove himself to his adoptive father to show his seafaring skills. Along with the family friend Smee, he boarded the Jolly Roger, a jewel of the English navy, and set sail with the fleet to find glory. But it was doom that awaited him. Ratcliffe had secretly paid off the other ships so that they would send the Jolly Roger and its crew to a watery grave. At the same time, Ratcliffe murdered his father and took over the Ratcliffe family, disowning James and declaring him unworthy of the name Ratcliffe.
So terrible was the rage of James that he himself sunk multiple ships before their numbers finally set in and the Jolly Roger exploded. But James didn't die. He refused to die. As the ship went down, James screamed he would face the fury of the gods to see his revenge be done to Ratcliffe. As it was, one such god heard him. James, Smee, the crew, and the ship were sent away to a different world where James could have all the time he needed to plot his revenge.
From that land, simply known as Neverland, James encountered the boy who could fly and never grew up. Though he tried to stave away from the boy, he always eluded capture, and eventually the boy and James ended up in a fight which cost him his left hand and an eternal fear of crocodiles. But still James didn't wish to be stopped. Finally adopting the name he would be known by for the years to come, James Killian Jones died and Captain Hook was born. A vengeful pirate captain that sought to eliminate all that stood in his way, his first deed was to kill the boy that cut off his hand and have him fed to the crocodile instead.
After thirty years, Hook returned from Neverland back to England to enact his plot. Getting on good terms with Prince John (now known as king) he also undertook steps to see his archenemy dead and take revenge for his adoptive father.
Under the French Flag
Once Hook hears that the sea witch, Ursula, has come into the possession of King Triton's trident, he sets off with his crew to find her and prevent her from taking over the seas. Hook manages to injure Ursula, but she uses the trident to grow into a giant and attack the Jolly Roger, tearing the ship apart and taking Hook prisoner.
After Ursula is slain by Ratcliffe, now Governor of the English colony of Jamestown, Hook manages to escape his prison and return to the surface. He ends up in France, where he contacts the surviving members of his crew and casts his lot in with Judge Claude Frollo. Frollo makes Hook a privateer in the service of France, providing the judge with crucial naval support for his planned invasion of England.
During the invasion, Hook and his armada find themselves up against Ratcliffe's fleet. Harboring no gratitude for the man who saved him from imprisonment, Hook boards Ratcliffe's flagship and engages his step-brother in a swordfight. Hook wins, but Ratcliffe pulls a gun. Plunging his hook-hand into one of the ship's masts, Hook swings the boom into Ratcliffe, knocking him overboard. With their commander taken out, the English navy surrenders. Hook has taken his long-awaited revenge.
A Second Betrayal
The invasion ends after Frollo's army haul off Prince John and install Pete as king of England, but Pete is captured by Doctor Frankenollie after a failed invasion of Wonderland. When news arrives that Professor Ratigan has taken advantage of the situation to declare himself king, Frollo sends Hook to reclaim the colony for France. Taking a flying version of the Jolly Roger, Hook pursues Ratigan through the London skyline, tricking his enemy into crashing into Big Ben. With Ratigan out of the way, Hook turns England back over to Frollo.
Having already lost Gaston after the hunter was murdered by Queen Narissa, Frollo is upset to learn Pete has been killed during a battle with Hades' Wind Titan. Tasking Hook with finding new soldiers for his alliance, Frollo sends him to talk with the master criminal, Madam Medusa. Medusa is already employed by David Xanatos, and refuse to work for Frollo. The two come to blows, and Hook ends up being chased off by Medusa's pet alligators, Brutus and Nero.
Deciding Hook is no more use to him, Frollo terminates the pirate's employment, leading Hook to swear revenge against the judge. Before Hook can attempt a coup, Frollo has Doctor Facilier summon the Headless Horseman to assassinate him. Hook holds the evil spirit off for as long as he can, but is cast from a cliff, where he is mauled to death by the crocodile that had devoured his hand long ago.

Disney vs Marvel Villains War
In the Employ of Enchanters
Jafar enlists Hook into an alliance of Disney villains led by Maleficent. Maleficent tasks Captain Hook with taking the youngest recruit, Avalanche, on a voyage. Hook does so. The two return to find Maleficent missing and Snow White in her throne room. Hades, Maleficent's right-hand man, joins them. Maleficent takes her leave of the group, leaving them to protect the Forbidden Mountains.
Attack on the Forbidden Mountains
Captain Hook, Ursula, and Hades all lie in wait at the Forbidden Mountains, waiting for Maleficent to return. Soon, however, Baron Strucker and the Grim Reaper attack the mountain, accompanied by a cadre of HYDRA troopers. Captain Hook takes on the Grim Reaper, slicing through the reaper's scythe with ease. Hook turns his attention to Strucker, but the Nazi shoots and stuns Captain Hook with a hand cannon. Captain Hook waits out the rest of the fight, getting up at just the right time to impale Strucker with his rapier.
The Folly of Failure
One day, as Hook is about to quit his membership to the alliance and sail back to Neverland, Maleficent and Pete mysteriously appear on the ship's deck, much to his surprise. Hook learns that the two were trapped in the computer realm. Hook returns Maleficent to the Forbidden Mountains, whereupon she tasks him and Avalanche with acquiring the Casket of Ancient Winters from Malekith. Avalanche transforms himself into a rock monster to try to crush the dark elf, providing an excellent distraction for Hook to sneak up behind Malekith and impale him with his hook. Unfortunately, Hook only manages to wound Malekith, who teleports away. Malekith soon wipes out Avalanche's rock monster form and knocks Hook away with a spell from the Casket. Malekith then unveils his full demonic visage, forcing Hook to flee.
Disgraced, Captain Hook begs Maleficent for forgiveness, attempting to charm her in the process. She provides none, hitting Hook on the head with her staff and magically transporting his being into the staff's crystal orb for his failure.
