At some point in his life Morgan became a captain of a pirate ship called the Wicked Wench. The Wicked Wench and her crew were part of the pirate fleet that tried to end Armando Salazar's reign of terror when the villainous Spanish capitán attempted to clean the seas from piracy. In a fierce battle off the coast of the mysterious Devil's Triangle the last pirates in the Caribbean joined forces in an attempt to sink Salazar's ship, the dreaded Silent Mary, but the mighty warship and her crew proved to be unstoppable. Soon, most of the pirate fleet was burning and sinking, and the Wicked Wench was the only pirate ship left afloat. Mortally wounded, Morgan gave his compass to Jack, an 18-year old boy, telling him never to betray it.
