Description:

Ant-Man is the name of several fictional characters in the Marvel Comics Universe. The first Ant-Man, Hank Pym, was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and first appears in Tales to Astonish #35. Since Pym, both Scott Lang and Eric O'Grady have used the name Ant-Man.

After discovering a size-altering chemical substance, biophysicist and nanotechnology expert Dr. Henry "Hank" Pym decided to become a superhero. Armed with a helmet that could control ants, Pym would shrink down to the size of an insect to become the unconventionally heroic Ant-Man. He soon shared his discovery with his girlfriend, Janet Van Dyne, who became his crime-fighting partner as the Wasp. The duo would become founding members of the Avengers, and found recurring enemies in the villainous Egghead and Pym's own robotic creation, Ultron. Pym has adopted other aliases over the years, largely based around the properties of his size-altering "Pym Particles". These include Giant-Man, Goliath, Yellowjacket, and the Wasp.

Scott Lang was a thief who was reformed with the aid of Pym and Iron Man. After a career as the second Ant-Man, he became an affiliate of the Fantastic Four, and most recently became a full-time member of the Avengers. For a period of time he dated Jessica Jones. He was killed in Avengers #500, but his daughter, Cassie, has taken up his heroic mantle as Stature, in the pages of Young Avengers.

Eric O'Grady is the third character to take up the title of Ant-Man. Eric O'Grady is a low-level agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. who stumbled upon who he believed was Dr.Henry Pym, but actually a Skrull impostor, in the latest incarnation of the Ant-Man suit, in S.H.I.E.L.D.'s headquarters. A man of very few morals and willing to lie, cheat, steal, and manipulate in order to get ahead in life, Eric really immediately stole the armor for his own selfish plans, which included using his status as a "super-hero" to seduce women, and humiliate and torment others. He had his own short-lived title before being shuttled off, first to the pages of "Avengers: The Initiative," and then, "The Thunderbolts".
