Golden Age Origin

David was the young King of Swisslakia, a Central European kingdom somewhere in the Alps (the map in Clue Comics #1 puts it about where Switzerland should be). When the Nazi forces attacked his kingdom, he unearthed and activated a Golem-like statue that was supposedly built by Nostradamus. Now you would think that he would use it to beat back the Nazis and assert his nation's sovereignty but, David had different ideas. He left Swisslakia with its entire population in tow and used the Giant to transport them to United States. Once there, he abdicated his throne and allowed his citizens to become citizens of United States. The fact that he effectively dissolved Swisslakia as a nation didn't seem to occur to the young ruler.

Even as an ordinary American citizen, David continued to wear his royal outfit (complete with a crown and ceremonial short sword). He used the Giant to defend his new homeland against Nazi agents and criminals. His enemies included the likes of Dr. Plasma, Paris, Hitler's Rex, and the Crane.

He was later reunited with his twin brother, Muggsy, who had been kidnapped as a child.

During the last few issues of his series, Giant showed up less frequently and would at times make no appearance at all, instead replaced largely with David's scrappy circle of young American friends, whom were more practical to work around with in New York City.
