Powers/Abilities: "Man-Mountain McCoy" was a powerful heavyweight wrestler. His special moves included the "nut-cracker," "neck-stretcher," "back-breaker," and "vibrator." He was also trained as a ranger.

History: (Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos#83) - McCoy was a professional wrestler, and won his first professional heavyweight match in 10 seconds. He was drafted into World War II, and had to leave his father's farm.

McCoy was assigned to Bull McGiveney's Maulers, and Bull was ecstatic to have him, since he was committed to a wrestling competition with his rivals, the Howling Commandos. McCoy was happy to oblige him, and was set up to face the Howlers' Timothy "Dum-Dum" Dugan in the ring. When Bull brought McCoy to a bar the Howlers were at to gloat, they soon got into a brawl, and Dugan proved to be no match for McCoy's superior strength and moves. As their respective squads fought each other, the two wrestlers decided to get out of the bar through the back, realizing that military police would be on their way.

The Nazi spy the Agent of 1,000 Faces disguised himself as Dugan and led the two into a trap, taking them both prisoner.

(Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos#84) - McCoy and Dugan were brought the Nazis' base in England, and they let word out to Captain Sawyer, intending to capture the Maulers and Howlers in a trap when they came to rescue their comrades. However, Dugan and McCoy worked together to escape their bonds and helped their squads overcome the Nazis.

When they returned to the base, McCoy and Dugan informed Captain Sawyer that they wouldn't be going ahead with their scheduled bout, because they were now best friends. However, they were interested in fighting side-by-side in a tag-team elimination.
