Where's Dum Dum, Chapter 5!!!!!

An extra tricky edition of Where's Dum Dum for you today, faithful readers...so look extra-carefully: can you find Dum Dum Dugan in this panel from Captain America #10 (1998)?

Think you've found him?


As dramatically revealed in the completely sad and unnecessary retcon series Original Sin, Dum Dum Dugan has been dead since 1966, and EVERY single appearance since then has really been an LMD programmed by Nick Fury to believe that he's the real, original Dum Dum. So sorry...

Oh, by the way, in that panel Cap is attacking Dugan (and S.H.I.E.L.D.) because the Avenger has been possessed by Nightmare.

Of course, since Dugan is just a machine, there's no way that Nightmare could possess Dum Dum just a couple of issues later, because...

Oops!!! I guess the LMD's were so good, even Mark Waid was fooled!!

Or maybe LMD's dream of electric sheep...
