William Barrett “Bill” Foster was born in a ghetto but thanks to his brilliant and scientific mind he managed to land himself a scholarship to California Technical Institute and then enlisted in the military. After this he worked for Stark Technologies and their he assisted Henry Pym/Yellow Jacket/Giant Man to solve a pym particle related problem. Once finished he created his own “growth formula” without any of the side effects of the original. He briefly clashed with Luke Cage and a Technical Adviser for the short lived Champions during his early years.

In modern times he fought against the registration act during civil war and wound up dead thanks to Clor/Ragnaroc. He was succeeded by his nephew, Tom Foster who continued his legacy.
