Trivia

The song 'A Man's Gotta Do' is prophetic to events that occur later in the show. Captain Hammer sings twice to Penny during the song that 'The only doom that's looming is you loving me to death'. And of course it is precisely Penny's love for Hammer which leads to Dr Horrible's rash actions and her eventual doom. See more »

Quotes

Captain Hammer: [singing] Everyone's a hero in their own way / Everyone can blaze a hero's trail / Don't worry if it's hard / If you're not a friggin' 'tard you will prevail!
