Massachusetts: Captain Hook
For Captain Hook to live somewhere, it has to be a place by the ocean so he can set up his ship and be ready to travel the seas anytime he wants. Massachusetts is just the place for him. He can dock his ship and sail whenever he has a chance. And of course, Smee would stay on the ship to ensure everything is up to par and anything that needs to get fixed is repaired for whenever his boss wants to take to the seas.
Captain Hook might even get a job as a professional fisherman so he can stay out of trouble when he’s not trying to chase after flying boys and his friends. Maybe he’d finally settle down and not need to head off to Neverland ever again.
He may be made to look like a bit of a fool in the movie, and don’t get me started on the Once Upon a Time version. I will not stop talking about how awesome that portrayal is, but he’s actually pretty smart. You have to be some kind of smart to come up with that bomb idea? Evil? Yes, but also smart. If it wasn’t for Tinker Bell, Peter would have had everyone blown up.
At least in Massachusetts, he doesn’t have to worry about any crocodiles attacking him. No one tell him about the zoo or Florida. He doesn’t need that level of stress. He’s an emotional guy. Wouldn’t you be a little out of it if you were traumatized by a crocodile and had angry children after you?
