Biography

Meeting Scott Lang

Pitching the Robbery

"That's Kurt. He was in Folsom for five years."
Luis to Scott Lang[src]

A professional cybercriminal, Kurt Goreshter served five years sentence in the Folsom State Prison. While staying at Luis' apartment with his friend Dave, Goreshter was introduced to Scott Lang, who had recently been released from prison after serving a three year sentence for breaking into the Vistacorp Headquarters and returning the money they have stolen. Luis introduced Lang to Goreshter and Dave and hinted to him that they wanted his help for their upcoming heist, but Lang insisted that he was not interested in returning to crime as he intended to go straight, getting a honest job.[2]

Robbing Hank Pym

"Old man have safe."
"And he's gone for a week."
"Alright. There's an old man, he's got a safe, and he's gone for a week. Let's just work with that."
―Kurt Goreshter, Luis and Scott Lang[src]

When Scott Lang's attempt at getting a job at Baskin-Robbins resulted in him getting fired, he reluctantly agreed to assist the team in the heist. They had a meeting where they discussed the details of the plan to rob billionaire Hank Pym's home as Luis had received important information about the layout of the house, including the safe which potentially housed millions of dollars. Goreshter was given the job of ensuring that the security systems were not operational ahead of the heist.

The heist went underway and Goreshter sat in the van with Luis and Dave while Scott Lang broke into the Pym Residence and looked for the safe. Lang continued to update the team as he found and destroyed the safe, only to find what appeared to be a strange Motorcycle Suit inside. Disappointed, Lang made it back to the van with the suit and Dave drove them back to Luis' apartment.[2]

Recruited by Hank Pym

"This is the work of the gypsies."
"That's... that's... that's witchcraft."
―Kurt Goreshter and Dave[src]

Goreshter, Dave and Luis were invited back to the Pym Residence for coffee. There they learned that Scott Lang had been working with Hank Pym and his daughter Hope van Dyne with the intention of breaking into Pym Technologies and stealing the weaponized Yellowjacket Suit from Darren Cross. Pym discussed their professionalism and chances of succeeding in their mission, although Goreshter stayed mostly quiet, Dave and Luis defended their skills.

Shortly after their coffee, Scott Lang stepped back into the room wearing the Ant-Man Suit they had once stolen. Everyone was initially impressed by the look of the suit, and were then amazed when Lang demonstrated the suit's shrinking abilities, which Goreshter called the work of gypsies. The night before the heist, Goreshter and the rest of the team got together to finalize the details of the plan, which would have Goreshter disabling the security systems for Lang as he made his way through the facility, although Hank Pym continued to question the likelihood of them succeeding.[2]

Stealing the Yellowjacket

"Servers are fried. Data backup completely erased."
"Headed to the particle chamber."
―Kurt Goreshter and Scott Lang[src]

The plan went underway and while Luis posed as a security guard, Hank Pym and Hope van Dyne spoke to Darren Cross and Scott Lang sneaked into Pym Technologies via the water line, Goreshter stayed in the van with Dave so he could hack into the security systems while Dave prepared to drive them away. Things almost immediately went wrong however when Dave spotted Pym being stopped by Police Officers Jim Paxton and Gale, Dave helped Pym by jumping into the police car and driving it away, distracting the police officers long enough for Pym to enter the building.

While Goreshter and Dave celebrated their distraction of the police, they accidentally pressed the horn which alerted them to their location. While they attempted to hide while Goreshter finished his hack, they were soon pulled out of the van and were nearly handcuffed, Goreshter barely managed to finish the hack before being dragged away from his laptop. They managed to escape when explosions and gunfire were heard which distracted the police, allowing Dave and Goreshter to pick up Luis and escape.

When they heard that Scott Lang was fighting Darren Cross at his ex-wife's home and his young daughter Cassie Lang was now in danger, Dave drove the team to the location, intending to help as best they could. When they arrived, however, they discovered the house was surrounded by police officials. Not wanting to get arrested, Dave drove the car backwards and made an awkward retreat.[2]

X-Con Security Consultants

Assisting Scott Lang

"Baba Yaga come at night, little children sleepy tight!"
―Kurt Goreshter[src]

Goreshter decided to work at X-Con Security Consultants alongside Luis, Dave, and Scott. Goreshter was tied up when Sonny Burch and Uzman arrived in order to interrogate Luis about Scott's location. Luis eventually revealed that they are in the Muir Woods, but much to everyone's surprise, Ghost appears in front of them, having heard the entire conversation and then went after Scott by going to the woods. Afterwards, the three were eventually freed and overheard that Burch inform Scott's location to the FBI while also pursuing them on their own. Luis informed Scott about this immediately and went to Scott's group by himself, leaving Goreshter and Dave behind.[3]

Chase for the Mobile Laboratory

"No. No. No. We're doing our jobs. You see, we see these guys they trying to shoot people."
"So we apprehended them. For you. You're welcome."
―Kurt Goreshter and Dave[src]

Goreshter and Dave arrived at Pier 39 to help out after Hope led Burch on a chase through San Francisco and ended up tazing Burch's goons. He is seen on television with Dave after having helped apprehend Burch and Uzman. This leads to an uptake in clients for their business.[3]
