“CAP’S KOOKY QUARTET” FORMS

In Avengers (1965) #16, the Avengers defeat the Masters of Evil. Originally, the villain team consists of Melter, Black Knight, Executioner, Enchantress and Baron Zemo. Apparently, Baron Zemo dies and is buried by Cap’ and Rick Jones. To end, Thor transports Melter, Black Knight and the Avengers to another dimension. There, Melter and Black Knight are captured. However, the Asgardians Enchantress and Executioner escape. At the next Avengers meeting, Thor is MIA.

In addition, Wasp decides to leave because of the team’s dangers. When Iron Man and Giant Man debate disbanding the Avengers, Hawkeye infiltrates the mansion. To this end, he wants membership. Soon, the Avengers announce they are accepting new members. After Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver submit their request by letter, they are accepted. Before the media, Cap’s Kooky Quartet is announced though questions remain about their level of power.

In 'Avengers' (1965) #16, Cap's Kooky Quartet is introduced.

ENCHANTRESS AND POWER MAN DEFEAT THE AVENGERS

In Avengers (1965) #21, Erik Josten is in the Amazon jungle. There, the former Baron Zemo agent is digging through rubble for the entrance through his lab. Since he is a wanted criminal in Europe, he hopes to repeat the experiment that created the super-powered Wonder Man. In this way, he hopes to change his fate. As fate would have it, the mischievous Enchantress views Erik in a vision and departs to his aid. There, she appears to him in the lab. Mischievously, she promises to work the machine for him.

When he gains super strength, Enchantress seduces the newly-christened Power Man to destroy the Avengers. Soon enough, Enchantress creates illusions around the city of the Avengers destroying property. When Cap’ learns of their plot, he fights Power Man. But he is no match for the super strong enemy. Afterwards, each Avenger is defeated except for Scarlet Witch. In humiliation, the Avengers are caught for trespassing and soon disband.

AFTER CLEARING THEIR NAMES, CAP’ LEAVES THE AVENGERS

After disbanding, Hawkeye, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch join a circus. But it turns out to be the Circus of Crime. Deceptively, they pose as a normal circus and call the police. In addition, they claim the Avengers attempted to rob them. Panickingly, the Avengers flee.

Meanwhile, Captain America poses as a publicity man. Successfully, he records Power Man on tape admitting his crime. Finally, the Avengers band together and defeat Power Man and Enchantress. With the tape, the Avengers clear their names. However, Cap’ leaves the Avengers at the end of the issue.

Feat: Goliath, ‘Avengers’ #28

In 'Avengers' (1966) #28, 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.

GOLIATH (HENRY PYM)

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.

How much intelligence does it take for Hank Pym to use Pym Particles to alter his size and become the 100-foot Goliath?

HANK PYM’S PYM PARTICLES USE MATTER FROM THE KOSMOS DIMENSION TO GROW TO 100-FOOT GOLIATH VIOLATING THE SQUARE-CUBE LAW.

GOLIATH GENERATED THE EQUIVALENT OF TOTAL BINDING ENERGY 4.2396779*10^19 JOULES INCREASING THE NUMBER OF HIS ATOMS FROM 8.391*10^27 ATOMS TO 2.3277775*10^30 ATOMS. HANK PYM GREW FROM 6 FEET TO 100-FOOT WITH THE PYM PARTICLES FROM THE KOSMOS DIMENSION.

GOLIATH PROCESSED 6.1051363*10^33 BYTES OF INFORMATION, 5.0876136*10^15 TIMES MORE INTELLIGENT THAN THE INTERNET.

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.
