History: (Avengers I#192) - Sid Bloat visited Avengers Mansion, where he slid his credit card through the Avengers ID card reader. The security system instantly denied access and a group of detention coils came out of the wall to restrain him. He was then covered by a titanium net and targeted by the laser cannons. The Beast soon arrived and announced that he was glad he wasn't in Sid's shoes, but Henry Peter Gyrich ran past Beast, claiming that since it was a security matter that he would deal with it. When asked who he was and what he was doing sneaking around, Sid Bloat nervously explained that he lived down the street and one of his neighbors had been playing his stereo loudly. Once Gyrich realized that Bloat was trying to recruit the Avengers in an effort to shut up his neighbor, Gyrich angrily told Beast to release Bloat. As Sid left thinking he should have contacted the Fantastic Four, the Vision recommended hitting his ceiling with a broomstick.
