Ever since starting his career as a super-villain, Erik Josten went from bad to worse. Starting out as the original Power Man, he was defeated by one villain after another, eventually changing his costumed identity to Smuggler. Now, he is down and out and has contacted Doctor Malus to give him new growing powers. As Goliath, he defeats Iron Man, but is in turn defeated when Iron Man is joined by his West Coast Avengers buddies Wonder Man and Hawkeye.

Indexer Notes

Editor Gruenwald discusses several tidbits and shows the covers to West Coast Avengers (Marvel, 1984 series) #2 and Iron Man (Marvel, 1968 series) #187. Both of those issues sport an October 1984 cover date which likely means that the publication date for this issue is also that month.
