When Goliath begins his work he determines to find a more capable lab assistant and with a suggestion from Tony Stark he finally settles on Bill Foster. Shortly after beginning his work with Goliath, Bill Foster suffers an assault from the Sons of the Serpent, though he is thankfully rescued by Goliath. With the help of Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D., the Avengers take the fight to the Sons of the Serpent, though the Sons score first blood by capturing Captain America and threatening to kill him if the Avengers get more involved.
