Dennis "Denny" Kedzierski
(Avengers Assemble I#20 (fb)) – Alice Taylor married Denny Kedzierski, who she considered to be the most exciting man that she'd ever met, even though her dad thought he was a punk. They remained happy after having their son Tommy. When Tommy went missing and never came home, the Kedzierskis entered a deep grief cycle and Dennis entered a deep depression. Alice watched Dennis struggle for a long time and she wished he could be better, bigger somehow. When the Terrigen Cloud passed over, Alice ended up in a cocoon and Denny panicked, trying to cut her out of it. Neighbors Soo Jin and Hanna Rhee came to check on the Kedzerskis just as Alice broke free, manifesting size-changing powers. She suddenly grew Denny to giant-size while she and the Rhees disappeared with the house.
(Avengers Assemble I#20) – Naked and giant-size, Denny panicked when an Avengers Quinjet drew close and he punched it out of the air. Wonder Man flew up to Dennis and helped him calm down and explain what happened. Scarlet Witch and the Wasp managed to restore Alice, as well as Soo Jin and Hanna, to normal size, which returned Dennis back to his normal self as well. As they surveyed the wreckage of their house, Alice talked about how she might use her powers and they joked about code-names for her.
