Pym Particle Arrow III (Goliath Arrow)

hdr-goliatharrowHawkeye (Clint Barton) is no stranger to Pym Particles, the subatomic particles discovered by Hank Pym that allow for shifts in size, strength, and density. For a time in the Avengers Clint took on the identity of Goliath and used the particles to become a giant. Clint first used the particles in an emergency when his bow broke.He decided to adopt the identity of the giant Avenger for a time. Even when he went back to the mantle of Hawkeye full time, he never gave up the Goliath identity completely.

Clint has three different tricks that use Pym Particles.

The Goliath Arrow (Pym Particle Arrow III) utilizes the famous size-shifting science to increase the target’s size. It’s difficult to imagine the situation where you would want to suddenly increase your opponent’s size and strength like that, though I have seen it done to disorient the target briefly.

Instead, the trick is used to trigger Clint’s transformation into Goliath. “Pulling a Goliath” is a useful emergency maneuver in the right situation.

Pym Particle Arrow I (The Reduction Arrow ) utilizes the famous size-shifting science to decrease the target’s size and strength.

Pym Particle Arrow III (The Growing Barrage ) creates a swarm of arrows by releasing an entire shrunken volley at once.
