Powers/Abilities: The Dutch Oven did not

a large comforter, which presumably provided a small semblance of

Hygienically speaking, the Dutch Oven also smelled
bad, which tended to repel others.
History: (West Coast Avengers III#1 (fb)) - After Hawkeye (Kate Bishop) made a flyer in an attempt to recruit heroes to her newly-created West Coast Avengers team, the Dutch Oven came to the tryouts and attempted to join the West Coast Avengers, only to be turned away by Kate Bishop.
(West Coast Avengers III#4) - When the West Coast
Avengers went on the Jimmy Kimmel Live!
late-night talk show, the Dutch Oven watched on television and
monologued that the West Coast Avengers rejected him at their peril.
(West Coast Avengers III#10 (fb) - BTS) - Determined to get revenge on the West Coast Avengers for rejecting him, the Dutch Oven mailed a threatening letter to the West Coast Avengers in which he said he could get the team's reality show canceled.
(West Coast Avengers III#10 - BTS) - Following the
completion of the construction of the West Coast Avengers headquarters,
Hawkeye (Kate Bishop) began going through the mail and found the Dutch
Oven's letter. As the West Coast Avengers enjoyed themselves in their
new headquarters, Kate read the letter and asked who the Dutch Oven was
and why he said he could get them canceled. She then mused about how
the Dutch Oven could not possibly have the authority to get their show
