Feat: Goliath, ‘Avengers’ #28

IN MAD SCIENCE

GOLIATH (HENRY PYM)
EARTH-616

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.

IN TEAM-UPS

THE AVENGERS WANT TO RECRUIT SPIDER-MAN

In ‘Amazing Spider-Man Annual’ (1966) #3, Spider-Man embarks on a comedic adventure in order to join the Avengers. In the opening pages, the Avengers debate whether to offer him membership. Hawkeye is immediately elated, while the other members find Spider-Man to be “an unknown quantity” and Wasp does not like Spider-Man.1 In order to conduct the meeting, Thor commands for there to be an acting chairman. The acting chairman is Captain America.

The Avengers decide to learn more about Spider-Man. Hawkeye proposes to consult Daredevil. Captain America says he is “hyper-sensitive to sounds and impulses.”1 Captain America and Goliath work on sending high-frequency radio signals. Daredevil soon arrives at Avengers Mansion. He gives Spider-Man the highest recommendation stating that in his recent battle with the web-slinger, Spider-Man “was stronger, and more skillful than ever!”1 Thor, Iron Man and Hawkeye soon depart to contact Spider-Man.

WELCOME SPIDER-MAN, TO AVENGERS MANSION!

Spider-Man is being recruited by the Avengers. Spider-Man arrives at Avengers Mansion. Soon, the Avengers must decide what kind of test to give Spider-Man.

Unfortunately, Spider-Man is hot-tempered and Hawkeye is loud-mouthed. And when Iron Man attempts to silence Spider-Man, Spider-Man gets upset by his concern about Aunt May. He starts thinking that the test is the Avengers want him to get mad.

SPIDER-MAN IS UP TO THE TEST AND STAGGERS THE HULK

The test for Spider-Man to join the Avengers, is for the web-slinger to find the Hulk and bring him back to the Avengers. After Spider-Man leaves, Captain America does not have enough time to state mission objectives or why they want the Hulk. Thor declares “the test is begun!”1 Spider-Man heads to the Daily Bugle and hears news about the Hulk spotted near the Gamma Ray Research Center. Spider-Man heads there. Spider-Man finds the Hulk and tells him the Green Goliath is coming with him.

A battle ensues where Spider-Man uses a combination of spider-speed and spider-strength to fight the Hulk. By accident, Hulk attempting to land a punch on Spider-Man, who evades, breaks the Gamma Ray Shielding Wall. This results into Hulk changing back into Dr. Bruce Banner. During their conversation, Spider-Man realizes Dr. Bruce Banner needs help not punishment and begins to question the Avengers. As Dr. Banner begins to change into Hulk, he tells Spider-Man he doesn’t reach his full strength “for first few minutes.”1 Sensing an opportunity, Spider-Man staggers the Hulk with a punch before he reaches full strength.

Spider-Man changes his mind about joining the Avengers. Questioning the Avengers’ motives, Spider-Man attempts to set Hulk free. However, Hulk is at full strength and easily busts through Spider-Man’s webbing.

Good ol’ Spider luck, failing him again! Spider-Man returns to the Avengers’ Mansion and resigns from their membership offer. He tells the Avengers he could not find the Hulk. After Spider-Man departs, the Avengers are disappointed and have mixed feelings. Captain America says the Avengers actually wanted to help Hulk.

In the end, Spider-Man resigns from the Avengers' membership offer.

It turns out that the fight is actually a test! Black Panther explains he recruited Captain America due to a threat: “destructive heat rays from an orbiting satellite that Wakandan rockets have failed to destroy.” The two heroes take off to investigate.

OUTCOME: DRAW
