Goliath Man & Goliath Girl

Matt Lannock was a scientist working on recreating the Golden Guardian serum for the military alongside his research partner Walt Oliver and his teen age daughter Victoria (Tori). One day there was an accident at the lab and the trio were exposed to an untested version of their experiment. Amazingly it didn’t have any adverse effects on them, instead bestowing them all with super strength. However, as the formula was unfinished, they need to be intravenously pumped with the serum to keep their strength. After an argument with Oliver, Lannock decided to use his serum to fight crime, becoming Goliath Man, and taking on Tori as his sidekick, Goliath Girl.


The research partner of Matt Lannock, later known as Goliath Man, Walt Oliver was involved in the accident that gave Goliath Man his powers. Also gaining powers from the accident, Oliver argued with Lannock about what to do with their serum. Lannock froze Oliver out after the argument, taking the test serum and technical notes, leaving Oliver with nothing. Oliver, now fuelled by hatred, recreated a older version of the serum to avoid suffering withdrawal and now uses his powers to steal and fund his further research. Much larger and stronger than Goliath Man, however he uses up energy at twice the speed.


After many years serving as sidekick to her father, Goliath Man, Victoria ‘Tori’ Lannock decided to step out from his shadow and pursue her own super heroics career as Amazon. Tutored in hand- to hand combat by Golden Guardian, instructed in weapon combat by Eagle, instructed in mechanics by Stinger and supplied with super serum by her father, Amazon is now arguably the greatest all-round fighter in the world. It also helps that she was a child genius, able to help with her fathers scientific experiments by 11 years old.
