Presumably, the past of Dum Dum Dugan of Earth-9997 mirrors that of his Earth-616 counterpart. In recent history, Dugan was still a member of SHIELD. During the various crisis created by the release of Terrigen Mists into Earth's atmosphere, SHIELD was one of the few organizations trying to keep the world in order. When Norman Osborn seized control of the United States, the members of SHIELD and Captain America would not pledge their allegiance to him because he used ill gotten means to secure his Presidency.
Timothy Dugan (Earth-9997)

Hydra host

In retaliation, Osborn created the Hydra, a biological parasite that would take control of it's host body effectively killing the host and taking control of their body, they would retain that beings powers and memories. Dugan was one of the Hydra's many victims.

His physical body would remain with the Hydra collective, wandering New York trying to find new host bodies. They would clash with the Iron Avengers, and the Skull's Army, where they were seemingly wiped out. Their would have appeared alive and well in a secret lab and be discovered by Mar-Vell and Captain America. When Cap learned from Mar-Vell that those who join the Hydra are killed, Cap would have their bodies banished to Limbo with Rom's blaster.
While in the Realm of the Dead, Dugan's soul would join with the other members of the decased Howling Commandos in a constant struggle against super-powered beings in that realm. The Commandos (along with Dugan) would be recruited by Captain America's soul to lead a counter attack against Death's forces when Mar-Vell assembled an army to kill Death and build a Paradise in her realm. Following the death of Death, Dugan would join the others in being the first to be accepted into Mar-Vell's Paradise. He would be given a shard of the Cosmic Cube to consume and create his own ideal paradise world to live out eternity. Dugan would be pulled out of this reality when Paradise would be invaded by the Kree army. Dugan would aid in the battle, which would end in the Kree's defeat and Mar-Vell turning over his powers to Reed Richards. Dugan's current whereabouts following the liberation of Paradise remain unrevealed.




Seemingly those of Timothy Dugan of Earth-616.
