Black Goliath

February 10, 2014

Dr. Bill Foster, a brilliant biochemist, first appeared in the Marvel Universe in The Avengers #32 (by Stan Lee and Don Heck) in 1966. Foster worked with Giant Man, fellow scientist Hank Pym, who was trapped at ten or more feet tall. This was his first exposure to the “Pym Particles” that enabled Pym’s growing and shrinking stints as Ant Man, Giant Man, Goliath and so on.

It wasn’t until nine years later in 1975 in the pages of Power Man #24 that Foster donned a superhero costume himself as Black Goliath. His own self-titled series followed, although it lasted only five issues.

The character was also seen in The Champions and elsewhere in the Marvel universe.

Foster changed his name to Giant Man in Marvel Two-in-One #55 (September 1979). While he didn’t prove popular enough to hold down a regular title, he became an important player in the popular “Project Pegasus” story arc.

He later changed his name once again, this time to Goliath, in The Thing #1 (January 2006), and he was killed by a clone of Thor in the Civil War story.

And being comics, he's been seen several times since his death.
