Edward Zeddemore (also known as Big Ed) [2] is Winston Zeddemore's father. Initially, He was not proud of his son's career choice.

HistoryEdit

Big Ed is a construction foreman but has experience in using dynamite. He wears one half of a family heirloom while Winston owns the other half. He seems to not believe in much of anything other than what is fact and practical. He, however, cares about his son. When Winston was a child, Ed once owned an old truck with a faulty lock so he rigged himself a special door opener.[3] [4] Ed didn't realize that Winston remembered this and took it to heart in his adult life. When Winston left the construction business and became a Ghostbusters, a rift seems to have formed between the two. Ed thinks the Ghostbusters are frauds because in his mind, ghosts do not exist. [5]

During a dig in Brooklyn, an extra-dimensional hole appeared. Ed dismissed it and tried to use a bulldozer then dynamite the cover it up and continue building. When that failed, Ed was about to get hit by the Collector's agents, those who expanded the hole, when the Ghostbusters intervened. Ed refused Winston's help but the two were taken and became prisoners of the Collector. It turned out that Ed and Winston's heirlooms were the two halves of what the Collector was looking for. Ed assessed his character, decided to trust him, and gave him the piece. The Collector got his freedom and teleported everyone and everything back to the physical plane.
