History

Henry Duke, codename Duke, is a super-strong and invulnerable All-American boy. The staff at The Seminary believes in his potential as a superhero, but Duke is reluctant. His father is an overbearing redneck who enjoys shooting propane tanks, and encourages his son to not "take any crap!"[1] Duke formed a surprising friendship with Punchy during their time at the Seminary. The United States government, represented by Agent Stahl, took a strong interest in Duke and enrolled him in a fledgling program.[2] When Duke failed to properly contain a super-villain, he doubted his ability as a superhero.[3] During his summer at home, his cousin, Dill, was abducted by aliens, piquing Duke's interest in exobiology.[4]

By some means, Duke survived Armageddon and was present when Jack Hawksmoor of the Authority planned to leave London during the Carrier's departure.[5]

Muppet

Up to date as of February 02, 2010
(Redirected to Inner Tube article)

From Muppet Wiki

Crasher visits Babs' and Chet's bedroom.

Inner Tube is a 10 minute pilot for The Jim Henson Hour, written in 1987 by David Misch. Directed by Jim Henson, the show includes original music and lyrics by Phil Ramone, Bob Halligan and Phil Galdston.

The show is similar in format to the MuppeTelevision segments of The Jim Henson Hour. Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy make brief appearances in the show, but the focus is on the new characters.

Although these new puppet characters were made of foam latex (an indication that they might have been created by the Creature Shop), they actually were built by the New York Muppet Workshop. The new characters are performed by Dave Goelz, Steve Whitmire (credited as Steve Whitmore), Richard Hunt, Kevin Clash, Camille Bonora, Kathy Mullen, David Rudman, Rick Lyon and John Henson.

The show is a display of (and mostly a celebration of) the magic of modern television technology and technology in general. Video special effects are used extensively. For example, characters often travel through TV screens from where they are to the place shown in the TV.

In the Jim Henson Hour pitch, clips from Inner Tube are presented as "Lead Free TV." Jim Henson describes it as "the Muppet Show from the future," and explains that it is one of the four types of programs in The Jim Henson Hour's proposed rotating schedule.

Several scenes from this can be seen in the television special The World of Jim Henson.

Characters

The Mechanics

"Inner Tube," a fly-by-night cable network in the back of an electronics shop, is run by two harried, nutty mechanics:

Jake, a heavy man with a mustache. He is knowledgeable, patient, and in charge, but not always the most observant. Performed by Dave Goelz.

Henry, a thinner taller man. He is not so smart, and things must be explained to him often, but he frequently notices what's going on before Jake does. Performed by Steve Whitmire.

The Band

One of the channels Jake and Henry broadcast is the domain of an unnamed futuristic rock band:

Duke, a big-haired lead male vocalist and guitarist. He tries to assume leadership of the band but the others, not feeling the need for a leader, tease him about it. His guitar is a headless Steinberger-type, possibly a bass. Performed by Steve Whitmire.

Maya, a silver-skinned female vocalist and guitarist. She has a sort of Jamaican accent. Performed by Camille Bonora. The puppet seems to have been recycled into a backup singer in The Jim Henson Hour episode 107.

Digit, a wire-haired, robot-voiced keyboardist. This character later showed up in The Jim Henson Hour, with a different voice and personality. Performed by Dave Goelz.

The nameless Inner Tube Drummer is a deep-voiced, older-sounding balding man, who seems not too impressed by technology. Performed by Kevin Clash.

The Troublemakers

Crasher: a wild, loudmouthed punk character who likes crashing through things. Performed by Richard Hunt. Two versions of Crasher were used on the show: a puppet and a full body costume, which allowed him to run or climb into a TV screen.

Glitch: an animation that would mischievously interrupt transfer.

Zaloom, a live-actor channel pirate with no channel of his own. He hijacks the channels of others, using technology to get his anti-technology message out. He was played by Paul Zaloom, best known as Beakman from the Saturday morning series Beakman's World.

The Viewers

Chet and Babs, an older couple watching TV in bed. Chet is performed by Dave Goelz and Babs by Kathy Mullen. They're mildly surprised when Crasher burts from their TV into their bedroom, but assume that it's merely an unusually realistic special effect.

The Babs puppet later appeared as a supermarket shopper in the "Food" episode of The Jim Henson Hour.

Channels

Aerobics Channel - hosted by Miss Piggy that shows that if someone does a daily dozen exercises with someone they love, exercise can be less boring.

Millionaire's Home Shopping Network - hosted by the Salesman (played by Richard Hunt), the channel sells really expensive things, including Denmark, for $200,199,622,122.95.

All-Kitchen-Utensil Network - a channel that forward novels starring kitchenware.

Notes

  • He is one of the non-player characters who congratulates the Lone Wanderer for successfully fighting his way out of The Hole.
  • Duke informs the player that many of the Pitt Raiders are actually former slaves who earned their freedom by fighting in the arena, although most do not like to admit to this fact. The rest are regular Raiders from the Capital Wasteland who came to the Pitt in order to join "the biggest gang around". Duke's dialogue suggests that he himself is one such former slave.
  • Duke refers to the raiders in the Capital Wasteland as "drugged up idiot raiders out in the wild", mentioning how they're an embarassment and bring shame to the profession.

Behind the scenes

He may be named after Duquesne University, which is refered to as "Duke University" by the local Pittsburghians.

Appearances

Duke appears only in the Fallout 3 add-on The Pitt.

Instead of killing Duke yourself, he can be killed for medium-sized monkey ninja bones by walking in a monkey form on the trapdoor in the warehouse. Then quickly taking the greegree off and waiting for him to appear, a gnome will come and finish him. Equip your greegree back and take his bones.

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

Duchess Satine Kryze

A male duke or female duchess was a title of nobility. In many cases, this title was passed down through the family bloodline. The wife of a duke automatically became known as a duchess, regardless of family lineage, and vice versa.

Duchess Satine Kryze was a pacifist aristocrat hailing from Kalevala. During the Clone Wars, she ruled over Mandalore.

Marcha of Mastigophorous was the Duchess of her family at the time of the First Corellian Insurrection.

His Grace the Duke Gadal-Herm's Safety Inspectorate manufactured Jedi Master Yoda's escape pod, and was presumably founded by Duke Gadal-Herm.

During the New Republic Era, Grand Duke Gror Pernon encouraged his grand-niece, Plourr Ilo to return to Eiattu with the Rogue Squadron to take back the throne from the impostor prince Harran.

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

Duke is a human in the Generation One continuity family

Duke is a member of G.I. Joe, often serving as the team leader whenever Hawk is somewhere else. With his blond hair, blue eyes, and cleft chin, he really sports that whole "real American Hero" thing much like a certain someone else.

Formerly a Man Of Action, Duke is now reduced to adult diapers and disability checks.

DDP G.I. Joe vs. the Transformers 2

In a far future, where Decepticons had turned the world into something that looks a scene from The Terminator, a one-armed, no-legged, wheelchair-bound Duke who's missing a hunk of his face led the Dreadnoks as part of the human resistance. G.I. Joe vs. the Transformers II issue 3

Dreamwave Transformers/G.I. Joe

Duke was the field commander for the G.I. Joe team in 1939 as Cobra marched across Europe. During Duke's initial meeting with raw Joe recruits, Snake-Eyes realized that they were being observed. Duke took a shot at the spy, Laserbeak, but the Decepticon fired an extremely precise laser beam that disarmed Duke, wounding his hand in the process. Shortly thereafter, Duke led a team to the Fera Islands, where Cobra was located. His team immediately came under heavy fire. The team took cover and encountered the dormant Autobots. The Line The Autobots revived, and after a brief confrontation, they convinced Duke and his team of their benign intentions. Transformed The united Autobot / Joe forces started to make their stand against Cobra and the Decepticons. Trial by Fire When Optimus Prime began to doubt the Autobots' place in the conflict, Duke showed him the horrors of a Cobra-dominated world in the form of slavery and death, convincing him to stay the course. Trenches As the war reached a climax, Optimus directed Snake-Eyes to smash the matrix that Cobra used to keep the Decepticons in check, rendering all of the Transformers inert. As the Joes contemplated this sacrifice, Duke mused that "there's a fine line between being a hero and being a memory." The Iron Fist

Ryuji Otogi, known in the English anime as Duke Devlin, invented the Dungeon Dice Monsters game. Otogi also owns a game shop called "Black Crown" that rivals the Kame Game Shop (In the manga, the game shop is owned by Otogi's father, "Mr. Crown"). Duke challenges Yugi Mutou to a game of Dungeon Dice Monsters despite the fact that Yugi does not know how to play it.

In the anime, Duke does this because Yugi defeated Maximillion Pegasus, the creator of Duel Monsters, smashing Duke's dreams of successfully making Dungeon Dice Monsters go world-wide. Duke believed Yugi cheated, and did not deserve to be the King of Games. Using Joey Wheeler (Katsuya Jonouchi), Duke was able to force Yugi to duel for Joey's freedom. Yugi, however, manages to win, using some help from a laptop computer (which Duke included in all Dungeon Dice Monsters set-ups, supposedly to provide help to new players and give accurate statistics) Duke realizes that Yugi plays very honestly, and becomes friends with Yugi. Duke also received information from Pegasus's company that they decided to spread Dungeon Dice Monsters.

In the manga, Otogi is forced to have a Dungeon Dice Monsters duel with Yugi by his father, Mr. Crown, who was cursed by an ancient “Reaching the Goal” dice game he once played with Yugi's grandfather, Sugoroku Mutou. Otogi's father wanted revenge on Sugoroku by doing to his grandson what Sugoroku had done to him. He also wants his son Ryuji to become the new owner of the Millennium Puzzle. During the course of the game, Otogi's father smashes the Millennium Puzzle to pieces. Although Yugi succeeds in defeating Otogi, Otogi's father grabs Yugi and the Puzzle and takes it to a secret room where he attempts to piece the Puzzle back together again. However, doing this causes him to hallucinate about being trapped in a maze, and in his confusion he knocks over a candle, setting the building on fire. Yugi is forced to solve the Puzzle on his own in the burning building, and though he does, he faints, but is rescued by Jonouchi.

Duke/Otogi proves to be a quite important secondary character. Duke saves Serenity Wheeler (Shizuka Jonouchi) and Tristan Taylor (Hiroto Honda) from Rare Hunters in Seto Kaiba's Battle City. Along with Serenity and Tristan, Duke dueled Nesbitt of The Big Five in Noah Kaiba's Virtual Realm. Later, Duke helps Joey when he collapses from his duel with Marik Ishtar, and cheers for Yugi during the Battle City Finals. Duke also helps Yugi, Jonouchi, and Kaiba against the Doma Organization in the Waking the Dragons saga and also tags along during the KC Grand Prix and Ceremonial Battle sagas.

Deck

Duke's first deck is made up of cards that he used in a duel against Joey Wheeler, in which both duelists agreed to open several packs of cards and simply use whatever they pulled from them. All the cards are from the Pharaoh's Servant expansion of the actual card game.

In the Virtual World, Duke's Deck is based around Dice cards and utilizes several monsters he used during his Dungeon Dice Monsters match with Yugi.

In the Waking the Dragons arc, Duke duels one more time, though not much of this deck is seen.
