Impactful Origins: Hank Pym aka Ant-Man

Published on January 7th, 2015

Hank Pym. Irredeemable, incorrigible,  and a plethora of other adjectives to describe his personality. Created by Stan Lee, Larry Lieber, and Jack Kirby in 1962, he made his first debut in a story more akin to the Incredible Shrinking Man than that of a blockbuster hero. Whether you know him as Ant-Nan, Goliath, Giant-Man or Yellow Jacket, he is arguably one of the single most important characters in the entire Marvel universe.

Founder of the Avengers, creator of Ultron, and a means to explore the delicate issues of psychological issues of inferiority complexes, spousal abuse, and dealing with life in the spotlight of both fame and infamy. Join us as we take a brief look at the history of Ant-Man.
