Can you tell he is a fan of Superheroes? Introduced in Thing #28 (1985) by Mike Carlin and Ron Wilson, Dennis Dunphy grew up admiring Superheroes. Wanting to be a professional footballer, he tried out for many teams but was rejected by all of them. He was then approached by the power broker who gave him superhuman strength. However, he knew he couldn’t compete with regular athletics so instead he joined the w Unlimited Class Wrestling Federation (UCWF), a superhuman wrestling federation. He would compete against Ben Grimm, the Thing, and sparked up a friendship with him. When the Power Broker used their fellow wrestlers to attack Grimm, Dennis sided with the Thing.
Captain America would investigate Power Broker Inc. and teamed up with Dennis. Dennis would fashion a suit based around a combination of DD and Wolverine. He was kidnapped by the Power Broker and subjected to power enhancement which caused a heart attack. After working the hotline for Cap, he would give Steve Rogers a new suit when John Walker was given the Captain America role. As part of Cap’s team, he would battle many foes but would have a rivalry with Nomad (Munroe). Helping Steve Rogers against the Serpent Society, he was arrested by Battlestar and sent to prison. Upon release, Cap made him a member of the Avengers. He travelled with Cap and Battlestar to save John Walker from ULTIMATUM, though he remained on the ship. After Cap found out that the villains were about to launch a bomb, he ordered D-man to crash the plane into the based and jump out of the plane. However, ULTIMATUM agent shot down the plane, believing they had killed D-man.
He survived and was rescued by Cap and Falcon. He would become the guardian of the Zero People but was forced to become one of Morgan Le Fay’s Queen Vengeance. After registering with the government in the Civil War, he joined the Army. After joining the Revengers, he was kidnapped by Henry Gyrich, who himself was brainwash by Codename: Bravo, and brainwashed into becoming Scourge. To stop him killing Cap, he was shot dead by Sharon Carter. He was revived when a boy summoned a demon. After the Secret Wars, Sam Wilson (then Captain America) hired him to be one of his support staff. When the Poison invaded Earth, he was bond with a symbiote and killed. He would of course returned and became a security guard at Ravencroft.
Though an obscure character, D-man is actually a character that many people have asked for. We haven’t received a D-man figure yet, but we did receive a Scourge of the Underworld version as part of the Civil War Red Onslaught wave.
