Get ready for the movie as Will Corona Pilgrim previews issue #2 of the comic!

Can’t wait for Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man and the Wasp”? We have some good news.

Out this Wednesday is writer Will Corona Pilgrim and artist Chris Allen‘s ANT-MAN AND THE WASP: PRELUDE #2! The second issue of this two-part story continues the adaptation of Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man”—and includes Scott Lang’s throw-down with the Falcon, the climactic fight with Yellowjacket, and a glimpse at Hope van Dyne’s future! Get ready to relive all the action in comic form.

We caught up with Will to hear more about Scott and Hope’s adventures in the series.

Marvel.com: This two-part series is an adaptation of Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man,” so it seems like an opportunity to take a deeper dive into Scott’s history.

Will Pilgrim: We actually got to get into Scott’s history a little bit in the MARVEL’S ANT-MAN– SCOTT LANG: SMALL TIME Infinite Comic, for the first film which was fun since it put a little more context to the whole VistaCorp situation that put Scott behind bars and created the rift between him and Maggie. This time around we got to see the fallout of those events as Scott’s trying to get back on his feet and make up for those past mistakes so he can spend more time with Cassie.

Marvel.com: What felt unique about the experience of telling this particular story in comic form?

Will Pilgrim: For me, trying to capture the humor of Luis’s trademark brand of storytelling was a truly unique challenge. Since his voice is so distinct in the film, I wanted to be able to capture a lot of that run-on sentence, stream of consciousness energy, and I think Chris Allen did a superb job achieving that on the comic page.

Marvel.com: It seems like you could take inspiration from the best of both Scott in the comics and Scott in the movie. How did you approach that balance?

Will Pilgrim: It’s equal measure for me, since having been at Marvel Studios on the development side when the first film was being made I was lucky enough to have some added insight as to how and what we should capture for the comic adaptation. I work very closely with editor Mark Basso when pitching and outlining how much of the story we’ll be able to get in an issue, and we’re always considering what the great action beats are that fans would love to see explored on the page.

Marvel.com: Can you tell us a little about the timeline? This sticks to the storyline of the first movie, right? 

Will Pilgrim: This one sticks specifically to the events of Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man”—if I only had more pages! I’d love to tell additional Marvel Cinematic Universe stories in comic form!

Pick up ANT-MAN AND THE WASP: PRELUDE #2, by Will Corona Pilgrim and Chris Allen, this Wednesday, April 4!

Preside over the reunion of Nadia Pym and Janet Van Dyne with Jeremy Whitley!

Bees won’t sting unless you provoke them, but wasps don’t need an excuse to be aggressive; they can take care of themselves. No wonder Janet Van Dyne—aka the original Wasp and the wife of original Ant-Man, Hank Pym—has remained a steadfast staple of Marvel Comics since her debut in 1963. Smart, cunning and independent, she kept the Avengers—which she helped found and name—together through the toughest of times.

And now, even with a new Wasp on the scene in Nadia Pym, Janet isn’t content to take the back seat; she remains ready to help save the day whenever duty calls.

Before she crops up in a new arc that begins in UNSTOPPABLE WASP #7 on July 5, the book’s writer, Jeremy Whitley, makes the case for why Ms. Dyne exemplifies one of Marvel’s greatest heroes ever.

Marvel.com: UNSTOPPABLE WASP #7 guest stars Janet Van Dyne for the second time in this series. How would you make the case for her as one of Marvel’s greatest heroes?

Jeremy Whitley: Well, the simple answer is that Janet is one of the original Avengers, so how could you not? The more complicated answer to make that case is that Janet was once a rich heiress and daughter of a world renowned scientist. When her father was murdered, she tracked down his partner Hank Pym and talked him into the performing the procedures that gave her, her wings and size changing capabilities. And once her father had been avenged, she decided to become a super hero. Even for Marvel, there were not many female super heroes in those days and many of those who did exist had their powers thrust upon them by accident. Janet seized the opportunity and became a super hero of her own volition. Beyond that, I would argue that Janet was what made the original Avengers the team that they were. While Cap, Tony, Thor, and Hank butted heads, Janet was the one who was able to find common ground and make them a real team. I’ve said, and say as much in the comic, that Janet’s real super power is people skills. She represents the Avengers in a way that people trust and want to work with.

Marvel.com: Are there any Van Dyne moments from years gone by that you admire?

Jeremy Whitley: I loved Janet as chairman/team leader of the Avengers. I think having a character who is defined by their personal strengths rather than their physical strengths leading a team makes for a much more interesting team. I think Janet really brought the heart as a leader and made the Avengers more than a collection of heavy hitters.

Marvel.com: While Nadia was born from Hank and Maria Pym, Janet is kind of like a surrogate mother/mentor towards their daughter. What kind of lessons and advice does she impart to this new Wasp, one who is feeling a little lost?

Jeremy Whitley: Nadia is naturally gifted and self-reliant. Having grown up where and how she did, it’s just part of who she is. Nadia never really needed someone to teach her about science or about fighting; she got plenty of that in the Red Room. The thing about Nadia is that she sees the world through rose-colored glasses and when things fall apart, she has trouble dealing. She really only knows one way to react to crisis and that’s to punch it. Now that she’s no longer part of an evil organization, she feels terrible when she hurts people and when it’s a problem that can’t be punched, she doesn’t know what to do. Janet is a person who has been through some rough times herself and is an expert at rebuilding, be it her life, her team, or just Avengers Mansion. There is nothing Janet hasn’t dealt with. Janet loves Nadia because she sees a girl who has been through the ringer and come out the other side stronger, much like herself. She sees this extraordinary ability to love and create and she wants to protect that. I think more than anything, Janet’s most important message to Nadia is that she doesn’t have to do it all alone.

Unstoppable Wasp #7 cover by Elsa Charretier

 

Marvel.com: Where is she when she’s not showing up to help save the day in UNSTOPPABLE WASP?

Jeremy Whitley: Well mostly she’s been buzzing around in UNCANNY AVENGERS, but Janet also has her own fashion line and a boutique in Manhattan to run. Beyond that, she is still often a public representative for the super hero community at large and the Avengers; she’s the majority owner and CEO of Pym Labs, and she gets invited to every big event in New York City. You know, she stays busy.  We’ll actually get to see a little bit of this in the [next] few issues of UNSTOPPABLE WASP.

Marvel.com: What kind of traits from the original Wasp do you think Nadia embodies?

Jeremy Whitley: I would say that Nadia has the same sense of kindness and tact that Janet doe. She would rather talk things out than fight. While their areas of intelligence lie in different fields, I would argue that they’re both very smart. Also, while Nadia and Janet relate to people differently, I would say they both do what they do to make life better for the people around them.

Marvel.com: How will she put her own spin on tackling the Red Room to help save Nadia and Ying?

Jeremy Whitley: Janet is the sort of person you want to have in your corner when your back’s against the wall. People will have to read the book to see exactly what she does, but she does it the way that only Janet can.

Marvel.com: Issue #7 is the beginning of a brand-new story arc. Can we expect to see more of a Waspish presence?

Jeremy Whitley: Absolutely. And maybe the return of a few other guest stars from the series.

UNSTOPPABLE WASP #7 by Jeremy Whitley and Veronica Fish puts Janet Van Dyne back in the mix on July 5!

Matt Murdock finds and loses love while battling a new Mr. Fear and other colorful foes!

In 1964, Marvel premiered one of its enduring and exciting super heroes, Daredevil. Whether in his secret identity as blind lawyer Matt Murdock or using his enhanced radar senses, DD stood out from the crowd as an unrelenting crusader for justice.

To celebrate 75 years of Marvel, 50 years of the Man Without Fear and the upcoming debut of Marvel’s “Daredevil” show on Netflix in 2015, we look back on the hero of Hell’s Kitchen’s remarkable history!

As the decade came to a close, Daredevil’s secret identity as Matt Murdock plagued him as never before, driving a wedge between him and what he believed to be his one chance for happiness: the love of Karen Page.

After saving his friend and partner Foggy Nelson from the Stilt-Man in DAREDEVIL #48, our hero witnessed Foggy’s ascension to the position of District Attorney, thanks to a landslide in the election. Though the two men had much to celebrate, their friendship fell apart within hours following the closing of the polls and they once again went their separate ways.

Daredevil attended the wedding of the Wasp and Yellowjacket in AVENGERS #60, but failed to shake the gloom that continued to dog him. When in DAREDEVIL #49, incarcerated criminal Biggie Benson hired scientist Starr Saxon to send his Plastoid robot after DD for revenge, the Man Without Fear collapsed under the weight of the assault. He managed to damage the robot in DAREDEVIL #50, gaining him a momentary reprieve, but soon found himself holding off the Plastoid’s charge when Saxon accidentally sent the construct after Benson in prison.

During Daredevil’s continuing battle against the scientist’s robot in DAREDEVIL #51, Saxon discovered the hero’s secret identity as attorney Matt Murdock. Later, after defeating the Plastoid robot, Matt tried to reconcile with both Foggy and Karen, but fell ill under apparent radiation poisoning. The Black Panther jumped into help in DAREDEVIL #52, and after administering an antidote to Matt, also recognized the lawyer’s double life.

Our hero reflected on his origins in DAREDEVIL #53, then decided that for Daredevil to continue, Matt Murdock needed to die.

With reports of Matt’s “death” in an alleged airplane crash circulating in DAREDEVIL #54, a new Mr. Fear began to make trouble for the Man Without Fear, calling him out for a public confrontation and laughing as the hero ran away from him.

Daredevil solved the mystery of his unreasonable fear in DAREDEVIL #55, but could not save his foe’s life when he stood revealed as Starr Saxon and leapt from a building to his death.

With Matt out of the way and desiring nothing more to marry the love of his life in DAREDEVIL #56, DD followed Karen to Virginia and her family’s estate, only to tumble into a battle with the villainous Death’s-Head. In DAREDEVIL #57, he learned that Karen’s father, Paxton Page, stood behind Death’s-Head’s campaign of terror, but that didn’t stop him from revealing his own identity and proposing marriage.

Back from the “dead” and as Special Assistant to the District Manager in DAREDEVIL #58, Matt Murdock’s newest challenge amounted to a decision forced upon him by his new fiancée, Karen Page.

After he resolved to please her and give up adventuring forever as Daredevil, an interruption by the motorcycle-riding Stunt-Master tore the couple apart again. In Karen’s wake, Matt looked toward a dark and uncertain future.

Throwing himself into helping his friend Willie Lincoln confront the Crime-Wave’s war on the city in DAREDEVIL #59, DD fought the assassin known as the Torpedo, all the while mourning the loss of Karen.
