Feature Detail

Death: Civil War #4 (October 2004)

Bill Foster, aka Goliath, was a colleague of Hank Pym/Ant-Man/Giant-Man, and after replicating the Pym Particle formula, he gained size-altering abilities in his own right. During the superhuman Civil War, he sided with Captain America’s anti-registration forces, but unfortunately, this decision proved to be his downfall. During a massive battle between Team Cap and Team Iron Man, a clone of Thor entered the fray and left a gaping hole through Goliath’s chest while he was still in his giant form. As such, Goliath’s body required 38 burial plots to accommodate his enormous corpse, which Tony Stark paid for out of guilt for his involvement in the creation of the Thor clone.
