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.

Scott Lang renews his rivalry with Taskmaster, aids the Avengers in their darkest hour, plus much more!

In 1962, the legacy of Ant-Man began; today, over five decades later, the legend has come to encompass multiple heroes and will take shape as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2015.

To celebrate the 75th anniversary of Marvel as well as prepare for Marvel’s “Ant-Man,” coming to theaters on July 17, 2015, learn all about the history of this unique hero.

Scott Lang’s learning curve as a new super hero in the 1980’s involved learning the ins and outs of the Ant-Man gear, teaming with experienced peers, and making new enemies, all the while keeping his secret safe from his daughter; how did he ever survive it all?

Intrigued by a swarm of agitated ants in MICRONAUTS #19, Scott Lang flew off as Ant-Man and into a wild adventure with denizens of the Microverse in MICRONAUTS #20. In MARVEL TEAM-UP #103, Lang joined forces with Spider-Man in an attempt to squash Taskmaster’s criminal academy, but the villain escaped once again.

Back at his job with Stark International, Scott attended a conclave for electronic engineers in IRON MAN #145, but when the Raiders crashed the party, Lang found them an overwhelming force without his Ant-Man equipment at hand. Later, in IRON MAN #151, he put Hank Pym’s inventions to good use when the Stark G.A.R.D. computer went haywire on him and he entered its insides to pull its plug.

Scott shrank down to his smallest size yet in MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE #87 to aid the Thing in a microscopic world. Queen Pearla’s gladiator arena presented a dangerous challenge, but Ben Grimm and Ant-Man combined forces to escape back to their own world.

After discovering the Avengers’ archer Hawkeye trapped in a carnival cage with a hungry lion in AVENGERS #223, Lang once again helped foil the Taskmaster’s schemes and save an innocent audience from a deadly cannon. In AVENGERS #224, the new Ant-Man secretly visited his benefactor Hank Pym in prison. Pym, accused of trumped-up crimes, refused Lang’s offer to bust him out, wanting to clear his name above-board.

INCREDIBLE HULK #285 revealed Scott Lang’s new position as foreman on the construction of Bruce Banner’s Northwind Observatory. The newbie crusader hoped to solicit Banner for his philosophy on being a hero, but the Hulk’s human alter-ego declined to comment, resisting the entire notion.

A massive flood in Ontario, Canada brought Ant-Man in to help in ROM #58, where he also found Alpha Flight on the scene alongside Rom and his Spaceknights. The alien Wraiths transformed ordinary ants into monsters, so Lang utilized his shrinking gas to send himself and the Spaceknights on a quest for answers. A battle with the mutated insects occurred in ROM #59, but Lang’s summoning of unchanged ants and Rom’s Neutralizer saved the day.

When the Masters of Evil invaded Avengers Mansion and beat Hercules to a pulp, Ant-Man rushed in to help the Wasp in AVENGERS #275 and defend the comatose demi-god in his hospital bed from the Absorbing Man and Titania. Scott stuck around to help the Avengers in their great time of need by infiltrating the Mansion in AVENGERS #276 and taking out the wily Fixer. Then, in AVENGERS #277, Ant-Man witnessed the final battle between Captain America and Baron Zemo, which ended the entire desperate situation.

Scott moved to Los Angeles in IRON MAN #224, and later, in IRON MAN #225, helped Tony Stark break into Hammer Industries to download data on stolen Iron Man armor technology. After the so-called “Armor Wars,” Ant-Man lent a hand once again to his boss when Stark stood accused of crimes during his quest to recover his property.

Though known as one of the smallest heroes ever, Hank Pym left behind some mighty big boots to fill when he vacated the role of Ant-Man and moved on to larger landscapes. A capable electronic technician, Scott Lang came from a different background than Pym, having once fallen upon a criminal path, but by taking on the mantle of Ant-Man he redeemed himself by making the role distinctly his own.

Lang’s first taste of rubbing elbows with super heroes came in AVENGERS #181 when he arrived at Avengers Mansion as an employee of Stark International, there to help install a new security system. Mistaken by Wonder Man as an intruder, Lang’s initial brush with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes might’ve ended in tragedy if not for the timely intervention of his boss, Tony Stark.

In MARVEL PREMIERE #47, Scott Lang’s history as an ex-con who’d served three years for his crimes in Ryker’s came back to haunt him when his young daughter Cassie fell ill due to a rare heart condition. Unable to pay for a specialist to operate on the girl, Lang broke into Hank Pym’s house and discovered a new path in the form of the costume and equipment of Ant-Man. Seeking out Dr. Sondheim, the specialist, Lang ran afoul of the hulking, monstrous Darren Cross, who desired the doctor’s attention all for his own.

Cross’ own heart suffered under a “nucleorganic” pacemaker of his that threatened to kill him if Sondheim didn’t perform a heart transplant in MARVEL PREMIERE #48. As Ant-Man, Lang arrived to rescue the doctor to save Cassie, but Cross stood in his way. Battling Cross, Lang witnessed the brutish man die from a burst heart, the result of Sondheim’s duplicity with her scalpel. After Cassie’s life-saving operation, Hank Pym took Lang aside and bequeathed the Ant-Man legacy to him and wished him well in his new career as a super hero.

A desperate Tony Stark, accused of murder and trying to exonerate himself, approached Lang in IRON MAN #125 to put his new Ant-Man gear to good use by interrogating the criminal Whiplash in Ryker’s. Lang’s eagerness to help stemmed from his feelings toward the job Stark provided him at his company, so the new Ant-Man made his way into the prison and extracted the information his boss desired. With it, Iron Man inched closer to exposing the plot against him.

In IRON MAN #133, Scott Lang once again came to Tony Stark’s aid, this time after a knock-down, drag-out clash between Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk. Stuck in his immobilized armor, due to extensive damage to it sustained from the battle, Stark waited while Ant-Man shrunk down to miniscule size and repaired the Iron Man suit from the inside out.

Lang’s first real encounter against a bona fide super villain arrived in AVENGERS #195. Called in by Hank Pym, who operated then as Yellowjacket, Ant-Man snuck into a supposed asylum with his benefactor to search for a kidnapped Janet Van Dyne, the Wasp. Inside, the two tiny heroes discovered an academy for super villain lackeys, and the strange situation of a doctor named Solomon and his clone. Before Ant-Man could fly into battle to save the Wasp, he came face to face with one of the most skilled criminals of all, the Taskmaster.

Subdued by Taskmaster, whose amazing ability to mimic superhuman abilities defied description, Lang found himself trussed up with Pym and Van Dyne and awaiting execution in AVENGERS #196. A timely rescue by the Avengers freed the captives, but the Taskmaster escaped to bedevil them all another day. Lang’s career as Ant-Man had officially begun, with adventures aplenty ahead of him.

Scientist, inventor, Avenger: as Ant-Man, Hank Pym founded an identity that served him well at the beginning of the new Heroic Age, one he subsequently bequeathed to others. Never quite standing as tall as his teammates like Iron Man, Thor, or the Hulk, Ant-Man nonetheless made an indelible imprint on the populace he swore to protect with his incredible discoveries and passion for science.

Having discovered a growth potion in TALES TO ASTONISH #27, scientist Henry “Hank” Pym made the fateful decision to experiment with it on himself, shrinking him to insect-size and literally heading down an ant hole. That adventure made Pym pause and ponder the implications of everything he’d experienced among the miniscule beings whose home he’d inadvertently invaded.

In TALES TO ASTONISH #35, Pym reconsidered his discovery and developed a special protective costume and helmet with which he could communicate with ants. Shrinking down to their size once again, he foiled the scheme of Russian agents to steal an anti-radiation formula as Ant-Man, a new champion for justice.

Later, in TALES TO ASTONISH #36, he worked his potion into gas form and continued to help the police department against such menaces as Comrade X and the racketeer called the Protector.

Ant-Man faced off against the first real challenge to his intellect in TALES TO ASTONISH #38 when he met Egghead, a criminal genius who sought out the super hero to defeat him for a mob of gangsters. A string of strange cases followed, as Pym combated the likes of the Scarlet Beetle in TALES TO ASTONISH #39, the other-dimensional Kulla in TALES TO ASTONISH #41, and the Master of Time in TALES TO ASTONISH #43.

Under siege by the gigantic alien Kosmos in TALES TO ASTONISH #44, Ant-Man took on a partner. The beautiful Janet Van Dyne, who’d just lost her father to Kosmos’ brusque entry into our world, became the Wasp and stood alongside Ant-Man to defeat the alien criminal. Hank and Janet also began to fall in love with each other, bonding as a super heroic duo like none other.

Egghead returned in TALES TO ASTONISH #45 to fight Ant-Man and the Wasp, and the diminutive hero aided the Fantastic Four against Doctor Doom and his subjugation of a microscopic world in FANTASTIC FOUR #16. After a few more challenges, Pym and Van Dyne joined with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to found the Avengers, the first great super team of the new era, as seen in AVENGERS #1.

After defeating the Porcupine in TALES TO ASTONISH #48, Ant-Man continued to develop his technology and made the first of many identity changes in TALES TO ASTONISH #49. Now able to grow to a fantastic height as well as shrink, Pym renamed himself Giant Man, though he still operated as Ant-Man for a short while when he operated at reduced size in special circumstances. Eventually, though, he abandoned the Ant-Man persona in favor of the great potential of Giant Man and introduced the identity to his fellow heroes in AVENGERS #2.

For the most part, Pym continued to operate beyond the Ant-Man name, save for rare occasions such as AVENGERS #93, when he re-adopted the role to examine the Vision from the inside during the Kree-Skrull War, and then years later when he succumbed to mind control under the artificial brain of Ultron, one of his own robotic creations, in AVENGERS #161 and #162. Then, with no memory of adventures as Giant Man, he once again wore the mask of Ant-Man until the Avengers set him right and together they defeated Ultron.

Finally, believing he’d set aside his first super heroic persona forever, Pym met a young man who’d pick up the legacy of Ant-Man and make it his own…
