Black Goliath

Dr. Bill Foster first appeared in AVENGERS #23 (1966) as the assistant of Hank Pym, who was the first Goliath. He became Black Goliath in LUKE CAGE, POWER MAN #24 (1975) and in 1976 he got his own comic that lasted a whole five issues. Black Goliath (who later changed his name to Giant-Man, then just Goliath) rambled around in comics like THE CHAMPIONS, THE DEFENDERS and MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE until he was killed in the Mini-Series CIVIL WAR in 2006.

This is my interpretation of the cover of his first issue, originally done by Rich Buckler as seen below. Click it if you want to see it bigger.
