For part one of our deep dive into Ant-Man and the Wasp, Andrew Rivera explores the multiple designs and identities of the astonishing Ant-Man.
Ant-Man and the Wasp are Marvel’s original power couple, and throughout their history, they’ve undergone countless costume transformations. The Ant-Man evolution involves all sorts of different codenames and identities, from Hank Pym to Scott Lang, Giant Man and Goliath to Yellowjacket. Ant-man and the Wasp have consistently remained two of the most important superheroes in Marvel comics, but, given their tumultuous history, it’s a miracle we even got a movie about them in the first place.
Given his absence in “Avengers: Infinity War,” all eyes have been on Ant-Man, and fans across the internet have been scouring every trailer, scene, and clip for clues as to his whereabouts. As history shows, Ant-Man is more than capable of hanging with the big boys and girls in the MCU, but he’s never really gotten the credit he deserves. And his evolution from cocky thief to humble hero is helped, of course, by his partner, the wondrous Wasp. She’ll be the subject of her own Yellow Spandex next week, but until then, sit back and enjoy the insectoid evolution of Ant-Man.
