| Trivia                  = *In Marvel Super Heroes: What The...?! Episode 3 Nick Fury sends a less than helpful LMD of himself to assist US Agent, Howard the Duck, and Ch'od to stop M.O.D.O.K. from pirating chick flicks. The LMD mocks David Hasselhoff, who played Fury in one of his movies, being useless in the fight, and at one point parodying the famed internet video of Hasslehoff on the ground, drunk, trying to eat a cheeseburger.

They were first used to create duplicates of SHIELD director Nick Fury in order to fool enemy agents of HYDRA.     Recently an LMD was used to replace General Thunderbolt Ross when it appeared that Red Hulk killed him (since it was unknown that Ross was actually Red Hulk). One was also used to replicate the deceased Glenn Talbot.
