Gigantus possesses superhuman size, stretching several stories high; he can also breathe underwater, using gills; by simply wading through the sea, he can generate destructive tidal waves
Claiming to be from the sunken continent of Atlantis, Goliath came to conquer the surface world. He was ordered to examine the lands of Earth and to summon countless thousands of his people when ready for invasion. Every step Goliath took churned the seas and caused tidal waves in the coastal cities. Coming ashore, Goliath saw no threat from humans, whom he considered too small to be concerned about. Goliath was frightened off when he ran into Ulvar, a gigantic “alien” more than twice his size; “Ulvar” was actually just a huge artificial construct made by an outdoor sign company.
Gigantus/Goliath returned to menace a jet carrying The Monster Hunters, but was blinded by the jet engine blast in his eyes. He returned beneath the waves, the extent of his injuries unknown.
The dream demon Nightmare created duplicates of several monsters, including a much smaller duplicate of Gigantus/Goliath, to attack a young Peter Parker in his dreams.
