Mark Beaks is one of the antagonists in the DuckTales reboot.
Beaks is the founder and CEO of Waddle, a tech company located in the neighborhood of Silverbeak. He is a tech industry billionaire, but does not care as much about money as he cares about status, being buzzworthy, and how many followers he has on social media.
Role in the series
Beaks made his debut in the Season 1 episode "The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks!", where Huey and Dewey compete with each other for a coveted internship at Beaks' company, Waddle. Meanwhile, Scrooge and Glomgold decide to team up to take Beaks down as their new competitor. It is revealed that his big project was a fraud so he could be rich as a result of the hype and attention of the project. Later on, he is grabbed by Falcon Graves, who Beaks hired to "steal" the secrets of the project, who angrily attempts to toss him off the roof of the company headquarters upon realizing the project was a fraud, though Beaks survives.
