Giant-Man is the alias used by a number of characters in Marvel Comics.
Fictional character biography
As Giant-Man, Pym joined the Secret Avengers, the Avengers A.I. and the Avengers Academy. He also helped Wasp to escape from the Microverse after the Avengers/X-Men conflict. Giant-Man also helped Matt Murdock and his friend Foggy Nelson in many moments.
Bill Foster was Hank Pym's successor who originally went by the name Black Goliath.
Raz Malhotra is a computer technician whose former field study was in artificial intelligence at the time when Hank Pym started to rid the world of them. Many companies shut down their A.I.s before Raz could graduate. He started working on a tech-support company called Techbusters in San Francisco. Upon resurfacing following his apparent death, Egghead read Raz's dissertion called "Breakthroughs in Moral Paradigms for Artificial Intelligence." Egghead decided to lure him into his lair under the guise of wanting support for his mac book. When Raz Malhotra arrived to Egghead's base, Egghead revealed his true intentions of wanting Malhotra to use his knowledge to power up artificial duplicates of the Avengers called the A.I.Vengers he had stolen from Hank Pym. Malhotra repudiated Egghead's evil intentions, forcing the villain to use a neural override device to control him. Egghead's plans attracted the attention of Hank Pym and Scott Lang. When Raz breaks free from the neural override, he shuts down the A.I.Vengers as Hank Pym knocks out Egghead. Some months later after Hank Pym seemingly perishes in the fight against Ultron, Hank Pym left one of his labs to Scott Lang who sent Raz a present in the form one of the Giant-Man uniforms.
Scott Lang later reunited with Raz and took him to confront Power Broker at his public promotion of the Hench App 2.0. They ended up coming into conflict with a female Blacklash who Power Broker hired to guard the event. Due to Raz's inexperience in crimefighting, Blacklash got away. Following the incident, Scott Lang gave Raz an offer come with him to Florida to be trained while looking over Hank Pym's lab there. Raz accepted the offer.
During the Civil War II storyline, Ulysses later received a vision that tipped off Blue Marvel about Infinaut's ninth manifestation attempt enabling him, Giant-Man, and the Ultimates to work on a Pym Particle accelerator that ended up anchoring Infinaut and shrinking him down to human size.
In the Ultimate Marvel universe, there is a group of characters called Giant-Men who gained size-shifting powers from a modified version of the technology that gave Hank Pym his powers and special jumpsuits that can grow with them. The Giant-Men are part of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Reserves and consist of Scott Lang, David Scotty, Peter, Cassandra Lang, and some unnamed Giant-Men and Giant-Women.
The Giant-Men later attack the West Coast Ultimates and easily defeat them.
