X-Men Origins: WolverineEdit

Fred Dukes was a mutant with the invulnerability powers. During the Vietnam War he was part of the Black Ops unit called Team X under the command of William Stryker. The team also consisted of James "Logan" Howlett, Victor Creed, Wade Wilson Agent Zero, John Wraith, and Christopher Bradley. Shortly after Logan quit, the team disbanded. The once-muscular and formidable soldier developed an eating disorder and easily became obese. Wraith began training him to be a boxer. Dukes had a boxing match with Logan after Logan, seeking information about Creed, called him "Bub"; Dukes misheard him and thought he said "Blob". At first Dukes gained the upper hand, but was knocked out by headbutting Logan, whose skeleton had recently been reinforced with adamantium. Dukes revealed that Creed and Stryker were working together, capturing mutants and experimenting on them, having allegedly learned the information from Agent Zero. Dukes did not know the location of Stryker's base, but revealed that there was an escaped mutant named Remy LeBeau who would.

It was later implied in a conversation between Sabretooth and John Wraith that Sabretooth learned their whereabouts from Dukes back in Las Vegas.

X2: X-Men UnitedEdit

Years later, the name "Dukes, Fred" appeared on a list of mutant names Mystique scrolled through on Stryker's computer while looking for Magneto's file, suggesting that Dukes may not have died as Creed had told John.
