A mercenary and international smuggler, Erik Josten was in the employ of Heinrich Zemo when Zemo died. After Zemo's death, Josten was subjected by the Asgardian Enchantress to the effects of the "ionic ray" machine that Zemo had used to create Wonder Man, and became the super-strong Power Man. Since then, he has operated as a costumed criminal. As his original ionic abilities declined he became known as the Smuggler. Nefaria temporarily restored his strength so he could siphon it off to give himself superhuman power. Eventually, Doctor Karl Malus administered an extract of Henry Pym's growth serum that allowed him to become a giant and regain his original might. He adopted the name Goliath and continued to operate as a costumed criminal.
