Heads up the training for the Deadly Dozen and
is promoted to sergeant
former circus strongman, Dum Dum first met Nick Fury on his way
out of Holland, escaping the Nazi onslaught. Fury and 'Happy" Sam
Sawyer were on a mission to meet a British spy and Dum Dum helped
them escape the Nazis and recover vital papers for the war effort.
Later, Dum Dum enlisted in the British service and served alongside
Sawyer in North Africa on several missions. Sawyer was wounded
and forced to take a desk job and when asked to form a special
missions squad, he remembered Dugan, placing him as second-in-command
of the newly formed First Attack Squad; aka The Howling Commandos.
During his time with the Howlers Dugan became skilled on all Allied
small weapons and gained experience in all forms of hand to hand
combat, especially Judo. With his trademark derby, Dum Dum frequently
struck fear into the Nazi and Japanese enemies in mission after
were the Howling Commandos feared by the Third Reich, a counter
squad of elite fighters, the Blitzkrieg Squad was formed, and among
their number, bar
room brawler Siegfried, whose story of defeating six men with his
bare hands made it to the ears of Von Strucker, was chosen to stand
against Dum Dum Dugan.
Among the foes Dum Dum squared off against was Colonel Klaue, stepping
in for Fury on a one-on-one match with the iron-handed officer.
Following this incident, Dugan was brought up on court martial
charges, but Fury soon revealed that it was a plot by the Agent
of a 1,000 Faces. Perhaps one of his most daring moments was his
face off against the Sea Shark, during which he lead a group of
prisoners to take over the German ship. Foreshadowing his future
experiences in SHIELD, Dugan also faced a number of supernatural
and super-human menaces during the war, including Baron Blood.
Dugan had many opportunities to take command of the Howlers himself.
On one occasion, trapped behind
enemy lines during Allied bombings of a German town Dum Dum took
command and lead a demoralized team back across heavily fortified
enemy territory with a wounded Fury in tow. His
experience with the Howlers lead to Dugan to being assigned to
train the similar task force known as the "Deadly Dozen" by Sawyer.
Promoted to sergeant, Dugan along with fellow Howlers Pinkerton
and Maneli trained and fought alongside the Dozen on their first
missions. Dugan was reassigned to the Howlers just prior to the
Battle of the Bulge where he fought alongside not only his Howler
teammates, but also the Deadly Dozen with their new commander and
Captain America and Bucky.
Serving Fury well as second in command of the Howlers during not
only World War II, but also later during missions during the Korean
War, it took little indecision as to who Fury wanted seconded to
