Fictional character biography[edit]

Before the war, Dino Manelli was a charismatic actor who was fluent in German and Italian. Manelli was a member of the original Howling Commandos and fought alongside the team during World War II. He was briefly replaced by Eric Koenig when he was sent on a special mission, which was helping to organize another team known as the Deadly Dozen.[volume & issue needed] He later returned to the Howlers but was briefly off-duty when he was wounded.[volume & issue needed] After the war, he continued acting and when he rejoins the Howlers for a one off assignment during the Vietnam War he has his own television show (as Dean Martin did at the time).[1] He later assisted S.H.I.E.L.D. following the Deltite Affair.[volume & issue needed]
