Luke saves him, and it turns out to be one of the Great Gambonnos of the Circus of Crime. While wandering the circus grounds, Luke sees Claire and confronts her. She tells him that she is here to see her ex-husband. She explains that her ex is Bill Foster, who she meet, fell in love with, and married in university and that after their marriage Bill became involved with the Avengers, and eventually became the costumed super-hero known as Black Goliath.

At that moment, Black Goliath (who has been forced to be a member of the Circus of Crime) appears and attacks Luke in a fit of jealousy. Their fight is cut short however when both are immobilized by the Circus of Crime and put on the hypnotic spell of the Ringmaster.
