Giant-Man (Marvel)(01 - Hank Pym)
Real Name: Henry Jonathan Pym
Search for 'Giant-Man (Marvel)(01 - Hank Pym)' on Amazon


Powers:
Growing Powers: could increase size to various degrees, with corresponding levels of super-human strength.

Weaknesses:
Had limits on the largest size to which he could increase without damaging himself, and had to take care not too change too often. On some occasions, was stuck at larger-than-normal sizes for extended periods of time.

Bio:
One of the early aliases of Henry Pym, who used the eponymous Pym particles to alter his size. In the early years of his super-heroic career, Pym alternated between shrinking himself down to act in the role of Ant-Man, and later often grew larger as Giant-Man. In both roles, he played a part in the earliest days of the Avengers. Pym would later take on a number of other code-names, and suffer a series of personal problems.

Notes:
In his early days, Pym would distinguish between "Ant Man" and "Giant Man" as two different aliases and distinct sets of powers. The character would often appear in stories while billed as one or the other, or both characters, depending upon which size changes he underwent. Created by Jack Kirby, Stan Lee, & Larry Lieber.

First Appearance: Tales to Astonish (1959) #49
