Marvel Comics Ant-Man has the ability to shrink himself, people and other objects to microscopic levels – usually ant size. Additionally, he can enlarge himself and things to giant size proportions. Ant-Man’s cybernetic helmet allows him to have telepathic control over ants. Furthermore, it amplifies his voice so people can hear him when he shrinks to his ant-size form. There have been three versions of Ant-Man – Hank Pym, Scott Lang, and Eric O’Grady.

Marvel Comics Ant-Man first appeared in “Tales to Astonish #35” in September 1962. The original Ant-Man was created by Dr. Henry “Hank” Pym. Dr. Pym was a Biophysicist and Security Operations Center expert who discovered a chemical substance that would allow the user to alter his size. He called the substance Pym Particles. He decided to become a superhero after the death of his first wife. Pym would become the mystery-solving Ant-Man solving crimes and stopping criminals. Being a generally unstable person, Hank Pym has taken the guise of several masked vigilantes. These included Ant-Man, Giant Man, Goliath, Wasp, Yellowjacket, and Scientist Supreme. Additionally, he was the actual creator of Ultron. Scott Lang is the second hero to take on the Ant-Man title. Ironically, he would first steal the suit before taking proving himself to Pym as a successor. He is the character depicted in the recent Marvel films.
