Just Shoot Him In The Balls

I am a huge comic book fan and to be such requires you to suspend disbelief often. Every now and then, more often than I care to admit, I run into something that I just can’t get past. Today’s case in point is Marvel’s Giant Man/Goliath. This character has the power to increase his size and proportionate strength. He is a founding member of the Avengers. He debuted in comics As Giant-Man in Tales to Astonish #49 (November 1963)

Giant Man is a great character but he’s not bullet proof and being that big, he cannot possibly move very fast. It just seems to me that if everything about Giant-Man gets bigger then his balls would be an easy target for a bazooka or guided missile of some kind. He wears colorful clothes so his junk must be impossible to miss. It may be a cheap shot but if I were a villain and it’s ether that or going to jail, I would choose not to go to jail. It’s just out there for anyone to see. He could nudge it against a building and get permanent damage. It’s certainly possible he wears a cup but I would bet it’s not made of adamantium.
