Captain Edward Teach, better known as Blackbeard, is the main antagonist of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. He is an infamous Pirate, based on the real-life Pirate of the same name, who wishes to claim the Fountain of Youth for himself. He is also a pirate that every pirate in the world is afraid of (presumably and arguably apart from Hector Barbossa and Davy Jones), due to his powers and ruthlessness.
