Dum Dum Dugan's History

Dugan, during the late 1930's worked as a strongman in a circus that was traveling around Europe. This was around the time of World War 2 as well as the time he met Nick Fury and Samuel Sawyer. Nick Fury was assigned the task of assisting Samuel Sawyer, who was a American officer, in rescuing British

scientists and agents that were captured by the Germans during their invasion in the Netherlands.

Dugan assisted them both, and in the process was inspired to join the British armed forces. After the attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese, Dugan and Sawyer were both transferred to the United States Army Rangers.

Later however, Sawyer was forced to retire from active duty, however it was also this moment that he formed an elite squad of American Rangers known as the Howling Commandos. Nick Fury and Dugan were both assigned to the team. Nick Fury became the head and Dugan became his right hand man.

During his stint as a howling commando, Dugan would leave the group but would later rejoin the team as the second in command during a mission in Korea and Vietnam.
