Marvel’s What If Season 2 is filled with plenty of thrilling what-if scenarios. One such scenario is shown in episode 2 where Peter Quill (AKA Star-Lord) Attacks Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. However, in this Universe, the Avengers include heroes like Black Panther, Ant-Man, Wendy Lawson (Mar-Vell), Winter Soldier, Thor, and Bill Foster.
Amongst each of these superheroes, Foster shared powers similar to the Ant-Man which raised some questions. Who is Bill Foster? Did he play any important role in the comics? And what is his connection with Hank Pym’s Ant-Man?
If you are curious about the identity of Bill Foster in Marvel, then you are at the right place. Here, we will unpack everything there is to know about this character from What If S02E2.
Who is Bill Foster in What If Season 2?
Bill Foster is Hank Pym’s old companion who worked with him on Project G.O.L.I.A.T.H during their time in the S.H.I.E.L.D. Both of them are exceptionally brilliant scientists in the same field. However, due to some issues in the past, both of them parted ways. In Marvel’s What If S2, circumstances have brought both Hank Pym and Bill Foster together again.
Bill Foster uses the technology that he created with Hank Pym to manipulate his size. He uses the Pym Particles to increase his size and hence, he received the name Giant-Man. Aside from this, Bill Foster also had a codename Goliath while working for the S.H.I.E.L.D.
This is Bill Foster’s Second On-Screen Appearance
Before What If, Bill Foster (played by Laurence Fishburne) showed up in MCU’s Ant-Man & The Wasp. Wherein, he was shown as the guy who was trying to cure Ava Starr AKA Ghost. During the events of this movie, we briefly get to know about Foster’s connection with Hank Pym.
Despite playing a role against Hank Pym and Co. in Ant-Man & The Wasp, Bill Foster is good at heart. You will only know about it if you watch the movie.
Bill Foster’s Powers & Abilities
As we have seen a gist of Foster’s powers in What If Season 2, what else does he have in his arsenal? Here’s what this character is capable of doing:
- Size Manipulation: With the help of Pym Particles, Bill Foster can increase his size as Ant-Man does. In the MCU, he was once able to grow up to 21 Feet. That’s the maximum height he could reach.
- Superhuman Strength & Durability: Bill Foster gains immense strength and durability as he increases his size.
- High Intelligence: Bill Foster, apart from Hank Pym, has a great deal of knowledge about Quantum Physics. His feat of intelligence is proved as he led the Project G.O.L.I.A.T.H for the S.H.I.E.L.D. Moreover, he has also created a Quantum Energy Chamber to slow down the worsening condition of the Ghost in Ant-Man & The Wasp.
