Marvel Two-In-One No. 55 The Pegasus Project Part Three
Lightner's unleashing of Nuklo breaks up Ben's poker game.
The Thing soon finds himself in a test of strength with Nuklo. Ben soon finds unexpected help.
Nuklo soon gives up. Giving Foster a chance to give us a capsule history of Goliath.

Looking in on entertainment wrestling it's Thundra vs. Titania.

That drugged needle will knock Thundra out.
Back at the Project, Goliath (briefly called Giant-Man) calls dibs on Nuklo. Ben creatively fashions some lead boxing gloves for him.
Goliath is doing well.
But he drops his guard and Ben has to step in.
