Scourge: Revealed

~Captain America #12 (2012)

In the latest issue of Captain America, we've finally learned who is hiding behind the visage of Scourge: it's Dennis Dunphy, who some might know of as Demolition Man.

D-Man's past is a bit muddled; he's in a state of flux and has served Marvel Comics as a superhero and villain. His first appearance was in The Thing #28 (1985), but he actually took his name during Captain America #328 (1987).

One theme that has surfaced in Dennis' history is his desire or need to be Captain America's ally. Apparently though, things have changed for the worst. Henry Gyrich, a man bent on revenge and extreme justice, has turned Dunphy into the Scourge of The Underword; now the one-time do-gooder is murdering anyone who gets in their way.

Villainous Moments is a column from of The Superheroes List, updated weekly (usually Tuesday). What are the bad guys doing this week? Macabre and unthinkable, grotesque and unbearable; here's your answer! Look for #VillainousMoments on Twitter.
