History: (Avengers: United They Stand cartoon
episode, "The Sorceress' Apprentice") - The Grim Reaper and his men
blew a bank vault as the Avengers arrived on the scene. Unaware of the
heroes' arrival, Grim Reaper commended his men on blowing the vault and
sarcastically announced that the only thing he needed for a perfect day
would be the Avengers. The Avengers then announced their entrance with
Hawkeye warning the Reaper to be careful what he wished for. Grim
Reaper immediately asked where his brother Wonder Man was before
ordering his men to attack the Avengers. As the Avengers took down his
men and sealed the vault, Grim Reaper fired on the Falcon, eventually
hitting and downing the hero. Scarlet Witch then took the offensive,
using her probability powers to melt the Grim Reaper's stolen gold.
Announcing that the Avengers didn't have what it took to take down the
Grim Reaper, just like his brother, the Reaper then teleported away in
a burst of lights and smoke. Soon locating the Grim Reaper, Avengers
Falcon and Tigra chased him through the city as the Reaper suggested
they give up the chase while holding them at bay with his wrist-mounted
lasers. Later, after the Scarlet Witch successfully revived the
comatose Wonder Man, Grim Reaper spied on the Avengers from afar,
witnessing Wonder Man and Scarlet Witch sharing a tender moment
together and monologued that it was time for the Avengers to pay the
price for taking his money.

I apologize for the fuzzy and television station watermarked images but the Avengers: United They Stand cartoon
series was not available in the US on DVD so I had to work with what I
had using videos posted on youtube that were taped off television. If
ever the series DOES get released on US DVD, I'll replace the images
with better quality screen caps.
Grim Reaper's physical height and weight were presumably the same as his Earth-616 counterpart. His eye and hair color were impossible to determine, as he was never seen outside of his armor.
While Grim Reaper's first name was never given in the
one episode he appeared in (Hawkeye only called him "Williams"), it
seems likely that it would be Eric, like his Earth-616 counterpart.
