The Man Cave is Captain Man's secret headquarters, located underneath Junk N' Stuff.

Description

To get into the Man Cave, one would have to enter a secret elevator which goes very deep down until he/she plummets to the ground. Inside are a bunch of technological equipment such as Captain Man's computer communicator, a secret door that leads somewhere, and two tubes to take Captain Man and his sidekick Kid Danger to the surface to fight crime in Swellview made by Schwoz.

To get up to the surface, he would have to yell "Up the tube". One of the tubes takes the individual up to the Junk N' Stuff garage through a car's engine, as shown when Piper was taking a peak. The interior of the cave has a futuristic appearance to it, matching the colors of Captain Man's suit of red, blue, yellow and silver.

While being located deep underground, the Man Cave is known for its surprisingly great Wi-Fi reception. As a result, videos can be streamed should one pull out their cellphone to view them. It also has its own "National Manthem", though rarely recited. The Man Cave is also physically known to outsiders of Swellview in the sense of it making physical appearances in Captain Man's streaming backgrounds; a group of four lucky people got to visit the Man Cave one time as part of a promotion.

Main Room

The tenth Man Cave is known to have Shellgon crystals that give the cave its source of power. In the event of emergency, only one crystal is to be removed should any of the above Man Caves suffer a consequence.

History

Captain Man was quoted as saying he has had a Man Cave long before it's present location; Schwoz Schwartz was the Man Cave's architect and eventually, inventor and caretaker. It is not clear when the very first Man Cave was built, but estimates give it a completion date of the early 2000s wherever in Swellview. This would be the Man Cave where Captain Man hired his first sidekick, Drex Stinklebaum.

When he subsequently betrayed his mentor for greater power and greed, Captain Man was forced to abandon this location and Schwoz would build 10 more Man Caves in Greater Swellview, all underneath a store called Junk N' Stuff. Having formed an agreement with the store's owner Gooch, he promised to keep his identity a secret and help him with his crime fighting activities.

All the Man Caves would be destroyed after Drex was defeated for the last time.

Contents

  • Tubes - Tubes that can take Captain Man and Kid Danger to their destination lifting them using sting winds. One tube is connected to a car's engine in the Junk N' Stuff garage. The tubes are also used to swich bodies as Captain Man and Frankin did in one episode.
  • Super Computer - A highly advanced computer used mainly by Charlotte to keep track of villains in Swellview and gain information, it is revealed that it also has cable television.
  • Hidden Weapons Vault - A shelf of highly dangerous weapons hidden in the floor of the Man Cave. A list of these gadgets can be found here.
  • Auto Snacker - A machine in the wall where if you hold your hand to it, and say the name of a food, the food will come out of the machine.
  • Self-Destruct Button - In Secret Room, it's shown that the Man Cave has a self-destruct button in case of emergencies or if Ray need to prove a point. It also capable of causing a strong earthquake. 
  • Elevator - the elevator goes from Junk N' Stuff to the Man Cave and goes down really fast. The buttons in the elevator to the Man Cave didn't have a question mark button between the Up and Down Buttons until Secret Room.
  • Emergency Lockdown - In Caved In, Jasper triggers the Emergency Lockdown for Junk N' Stuff and the Man Cave. Jasper tries to leave, but when he hits the door, it shocks him. The same thing happened with the elevator buttons. The elevator, sprocket, tubes, and snack machine wouldn't work. Henry tries to call Jasper, but during Emergency Lockdown, phones don't work. The reason for the Emergency Lockdown was to stop any criminals from coming into the Man Cave if they knew where it was. Later, Henry opens a cabinet and finds a clock with wires coming out of it. Ray reads on the clock that it's the lockdown timer. Charlotte tells him to turn its hands forwards, and Ray does so. The emergency lockdown is lifted.

Trivia

  • The Man Cave is inspired from the Batcave in the Batman continuity, down from having a secret entrance to having a computer to keep track of criminal activity.
  • The Auto Snacker reads Food-O-Matic in The Danger Begins, while in later episodes it reads Auto Snacks.
  • It's revealed in Jasper's Real Girlfriend that Schwoz can bring every family member to the Man Cave, except for Winnie Schwartz.
    • It is likely that Schwoz no longer has this restriction, as Winnie is seen in the Man Cave in her subsequent appearances.
  • It is revealed in a motion comic that there are stairs that lead to Junk N' Stuff. The Season 4 episode Up The Stairs! later confirms this.
  • It is stated in The Danger Begins that there is a hot tub in the man cave.
  • Captain Man states in Hour of Power that he had another Man Cave prior to that episode's events. This means during the nine years that have past, the current cave was built just not too long before the events of the show's premiere episode.
    • It is revealed that there are 10 Man Caves, scattered all over Swellview, including the one which Ray and Drex were partners at the time.
  • Ray once let Brad stay in the Man Cave for two months when his girlfriend dumped him to try to make up for getting him turned invisible.
  • It is revealed in The Trouble With Frittles, that the Man Cave is located 0.5 miles underneath Junk N Stuff.
    • According to Schwoz, in Up The Stairs!, it is 242 stories beneath the surface.
    • As of Secret Room, the new Man Cave is now located 0.7 miles below Junk N' Stuff. This, therefore, leaves many contradictions as to how deep below the surface the cave really is.
  • In The Danger Begins, the Tubes have a different design from what they look like today.
  • During the transition to the Man Cave, right before the camera goes down the elevator, you can see a duck mask on one of the shelves. This mask was seen on iCarly and it belonged to crazy fangirl, Mandy.
  • The Man Cave has been blown up 6 times. The first one was blown up by accident, the second one was a prank, third one got invaded by Mole People, the fourth one was when Ray saw a spider and couldn't find a tissue, the fifth one was over a, churro in Secret Room, and the sixth one was blown up by a Mole Person.
