Some days after an attack on Stark International headquarters, Scott Lang, a technician, must do some repairs in a facility. Some drops of a corrosive liquid falls through the central computer. The security system, out of control, locks down the building and tries to kill Lang. He puts his Ant-Man costume, becomes small and, with the help of some ants, goes inside the computer to fix it.
This issue was one of my few comics when I was a kid. I liked this story a lot. There was some suspense, the character was more vulnerable than most heroes. And the ability to become miniature and to communicate with ants seemed fantastic. So, I feel some excitement for the Ant-Man movie. If this is well done, that could be fun to see a scene like the picture above in 3D.
…The story of the Ant-Man character is an interesting one, but all you really need to know is that Paul Rudd’s character, Scott Lang, is a reformed thief with a chance to do good… by stealing something. The stakes are high for Lang and his loved ones, but the patented Marvel sense of humor appears to be intact as well.
“If this technology gets out, it’s going to be chaos.”
Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man, tells Lang. His response?
