The second host of the Fiend Entity was Doug Herman, an easily influenced man who bought in to the hatred being spread regarding Dragon by R. Richard Richards and his Chicago Voice newspaper. Doug’s brain-washing brought him to the attention of the Fiend who took him as his host. The Fiend was winning his rematch with Dragon until the hero’s words and actions made Doug Herman realize that he had been tricked. With this awakening, he was weakened and died from a mere punch, snapping his neck.
