# Feat: Goliath, ‘Avengers’ #28

In ‘Avengers’ (1966) #28, titled “Among Us Walks A Goliath”, Henry “Hank” Pym performs an intelligence feat. In an attempt to re-join the Avengers, Hank Pym uses Pym Particles to alter his size and become the 100-foot Goliath. In ‘Avengers’ (1966) #28, Hank Pym performs an intelligence feat.

Hank Pym discovered a way to use his Pym Particles to transport matter from the Kosmos Dimension in order to grow in height and size. Though he violates the Square-Cube Law. Hank Pym likely transported atoms from the Kosmos Dimension in order to increase his height and size.

We will use this fact to calculate the increase in height due to the addition of matter in the form of atoms.

#### NUMBER CRUNCHING

From ThoughtCo, let’s use the chemical composition of the human body to calculate the total binding energy in a 70 kg body. There are 7*10^27 atoms in a 70 kg body. You can toggle the Toggle Arrow below in order to show the calculations.

Total Binding Energy In A 70 Kg Body = 9.25815810^16 J + 1.861280810^16 J + 3.756067910^15 J + 5.754289810^15 J + 3.372712210^15 J + 1.497116110^15 J + 6.096168710^14 J + 4.184719110^14 J + 6.688986710^14 J + 2.223497710^14 J = 1.2749391*10^17 J.

Since Hank Pym, 6-foot body is 83.91 Kg, we can find the total number of atoms in 6-foot body.

Number Of Atoms In A 83.91 Kg Body = (83.91 kg/70 kg)(710^27 atoms) = 8.39110^27 atoms.

Since Hank is human, we can assume the increase height maintains his BMI. We use the BMI to calculate Hank’s weight at 100 feet.

Henry Pym’s BMI = (83.91)/(1.83^2 m) = 25.0559885335 kg/m^2.

Henry Pym’s Mass At 100 Foot = (25.0559885335 kg/m^2)(30.48^2 m) = 23277.7750497 kg. Then we can calculate the number of atoms in a 23277 Kg body and the total binding energy.

Number Of Atoms In A 23277 Kg Body = (23277.7750497 kg/83.91 kg)(1.528287710^17 J) = 2.327777510^30 atoms.

Total Binding Energy In A 23277 Kg Body = (2.327777510^30/8.39110^27 atoms)(1.528287710^17 J) = 4.239677910^19 J. The last two steps are to calculate the energy ratio in Hank’s 100-foot body and the bytes of information in Hank’s brain. We use the fact that a human being uses 7,500,000 J/day. We end up with 6.1051363*10^33 bytes in Hank’s brain. Let’s have a comparison with the Internet.

Ratio Henry Pym/Internet = (6.105136310^33 bytes/human)/(120010^15 bytes) = 5.0876136*10^15/human.

#### INTELLIGENCE

Hank Pym used the Pym Particles in order to increase his height and size. From his increase to 100-foot we can calculate that Hank’s invention allowed him to process 6.1051363*10^33 bytes of information at the Mathematical Computation Level of Intelligence.
