Known Relatives: None
Base of Operations: Mobile throughout the universe
in 31st century reality-691;
formerly an unidentified planet
First Appearance: Giant-Size Defenders I#3 (January, 1975)
Powers/Abilities: As a Fomalhauti, Dumog is possesses
telepathy, which he uses for communication. Dumog possesses only a single
(centralized) eye, and its body is amorphous, with no bones or any structure,
though it can form and extend tentacles to grasp objects or to use as legs on
which to run. Dumog can also breathe underwater. Though it can be frozen solid,
it can apparently recover without permanent damage.
It can form it's body into snaky tendrils or sharp points, and can bounce quickly by propelling forward.
(Giant-Size Defenders I#3) - Dumog was selected to be part of Prime Mover's minions in his game of wits against the Grandmaster. Alongside Teju he was sent to a world full of exploding volcanic holes to fight against Namor the Sub-Mariner and Daredevil. Dumog distracted Daredevil's radar sense with his writhing tendrils, and soon threw Daredevil into a lava blast that killed the hero. Teju also triumphed; but after the Prime Mover lost the battle, Daredevil and Sub-Mariner were restored to life and health.
(Thor Annual#6 (fb) - BTS) - Korvac sent out probes through time and space to recover long-lost devices and artifacts, as well as to recruit a number of lieutenants, his Minions of Menace: Brahl, Dumog, Grott, Korvac, Teju, and Tork.
(Thor Annual#6) - When Korvac commanded Teju to confirm
destruction of a ship they had encountered, the Minions began fighting amongst
themselves, with Dumog trying to restrain Tork. Korvac commanded them all to
stand down and then revealed his plot to cause Earth's sun to go nova and siphon
the power into his equipment so he could use it to establish his own empire.
When the ship, the Guardians of the Galaxy's Freedom's Lady, returned, Korvac ordered defense drones to destroy it. The Guardians and their guest, Thor of Earth-616, set their ship on auto-pilot and beamed down to Korvac's world where the Minions of Menace confronted them. Dumog saved Teju by snatching one of Yondu's Yaka arrows out of the air with a tentacle, but he was ultimately frozen solid by Martinex. The rest of the Minions were dispatched as well, while Thor and Starhawk foiled and drove off Korvac.
(Guardians of the Galaxy#22 (fb) - BTS) - On an unidentified planet, Dumog and Tork committed a crime during which Dumog "skragged a mammal" (presumably killed a humanoid).
(Guardians of the Galaxy#22) - Brahl met with Dumog and Tork as they rushed into a dead end ally while fleeing from the authorities. He offered his help...
(Guardians of the Galaxy#23) - Dumog joined Brahl and Tork in meeting Grott and recruiting him to help fulfill his master plan.
(Guardians of the Galaxy Annual#2 (fb) - BTS) - Brahl re-formed the Minions of Menace as the Intimidators. Somehow obtaining a chip encoded with the sum total of Korvac prior to his traveling to the modern era of Earth-616, Brahl brought the chip and the Intimidators to the planet Klattu, home of the immense computer Mainframe (the alternate future counterpart of the Vision). The hooked up the chip and activated it, draining virtually every last erg of power from Mainframe. A simultaneous infection with the powerful computer virus Ultra-Max rendered Mainframe unable to resist them.
(Guardians of the Galaxy Annual#2) - The team that would become the Galactic Guardians (Firelord, Hollywood, Spirit of Vengeance, Martinex T'Naga, Replica) confronted the Intimidators in hopes of saving Mainframe. The Intimidators proved no match for their assailants, and after a short struggle Martinex trapped Dumog, Grott, Teju, and Tork within chunks of ice. The soon-to-be Guardians were unable to stop Brahl before he could complete the Korvac program, but they managed to overload Korvac and free Phoenix (Girard) who made short work of Korvac. Mainframe recovered, and the heroes decided to stay together as the Galactic Guardians.
Comments: Created by Steve Gerber, Len Wein, Jim Starlin, Dan Adkins, Don Newton, & Jim Mooney.
It is not 100% confirmed that Dumog or that
anyone else from Giant-Size Defenders#3 is from 31st century reality-691.
However, following the conclusion of their manipulation by the Prime Mover,
Dumog, Grott, Korvac, & Teju showed up next in 31st century reality-691;
further, except Korvac, none of the others were ever seen anywhere else besides
31st century reality-691, nor was there ever any hint that they were
Korvac does say that he recruited his lieutenants (the Minions of Menace) from across time and space.
