Curse you McDuck!

–Flintheart Glomgold

Flintheart Glomgold (real name Duke Baloney) is the archenemy of Scrooge McDuck in the 2017 version of DuckTales. A rival to Scrooge and the second richest businessman in the world, he is ruthlessly, greedy, and wants nothing more than to outdo Scrooge in every way.

Description

He was created by Disney Legend Carl Barks, and made his first appearance in Barks' 1956 comic The Second-Richest Duck Uncle Scrooge #15). Flintheart will attempt any possible underhanded deed in order to defeat Scrooge. He is a South African White Duck and the archenemy of Scrooge McDuck, usually portrayed as an ambitious, ruthless, and manipulative businessman who shares many of the same qualities as Scrooge—the drive for massive wealth, and the cunning and creativity to obtain the same—but he lacks any of Scrooge's tendencies towards generosity and compassion. In Don Rosa's The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck he is said to be a Boer.

Personality

Treasure is the greatest treasure. that's why it's called treasure!

–Flintheart Glomgold

Flintheart is a ruthless, scheming and deranged businessman. A direct contrast to Scrooge in his methods, Flintheart will gladly lie and cheat his way to victory, with little care for anyone. He sees all other individuals as nothing more than tools for succeeding in his goals. Flintheart Glomgold (or Duke Baloney) is an obsessive, vicous, murderous, greedy, dim grifter who gladly feign loyalty to someone if he believes that they can lead him to whatever treasure he may be hunting at the time. Flintheart wants to be better at Scrooge at everything, but when that doesn't play out the way he wishes he turns to murder. Flintheart often tries to kills Scrooge and anyone else that infuriates him, like Mark Beaks. He is determined to outdo Scrooge at everything, from discovering rare treasure to being the most Scottish.

Abilities

  • Skilled hand-to-hand combatant: Flintheart is an expert hand-to-hand combatant able to take on Scrooge with ease, although due to his advanced age he doesn't regularly engage in such activities, usually hiring goons to do his dirty work.
  • Genius-level intellect: Flintheart is also quite an accomplished businessman, being smart enough to start his own company, which rivals that of Scrooge McDuck.

Physical Appearence

This incarnation of Glomgold is also rather hefty in weight, compared to his previous appearances. Glomgold wears a green Scottish kilt, with a white shirt, brown vest, and a navy blue jacket. Glomgold also sports a fake grey beard to look older.

Relationships

Zan Owlson

She is Glomgold's former business associate, who tries to get Glomgold to use his company for the benefit of the world and not outlandish schemes, but all of her attempts to convince him continuously fail. Unfortunately by the time of "The Richest Duck in the World!" Owlson decides to quit and resume with her own companies after having been fed up with both Louie and Glomgold's disastrous company schemes, leaving their relationship on a negative note.

Rivals

Scrooge McDuck

Glomgold hates Scrooge with every fiber in body and obsessively tries to defeat and kill him every chance he gets. Every since he was young, he felt cheated when he is paid with only a dime, as he believed that Scrooge was bragging about being the richest duck in the world. Leading him to reinvent himself as Flintheart Glomgold and begin a lifelong quest to outdo Scrooge. The reason his hatred for Scrooge started was when he was a little kid and he shined Scrooge's spats, Scrooge gave him a dime to teach him self-reliance. Instead, an angered Duke yells at Scrooge saying that shoe shining is a dollar, spats are extra, and plus a tip.

Mark Beaks

Meeting in The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks! Mark introduces himself as the newest rich person in Duckburg. And much like Scrooge, Glomgold hates his cockiness and wish to get rid of him, to be free from his annoying personality.
