12. Lemuel Gulliver

In terms of general effectiveness, Lemuel Gulliver might leave something to be desired as a captain. He winds up getting captured by a race of tiny humans on his travels, and also is played by Jack Black in a movie. It doesn’t get much more dire, but manages to escape all this horror and get home safe and sound, which is pretty admirable considering… Jack Black.
