A good man with a criminal past, Scott Lang builds upon the legacy of one of the founding Avengers as the size-changing hero Ant-Man.
From the Big House to the Ant Farm
Desperate to provide for his family, but unable to make ends meet, electronics genius Scott Lang turned to burglary and inadvertently won himself a prison sentence. After being released early for good behavior, he knuckled down to raise his daughter Cassie, though soon discovered nothing had changed with his luck and fortunes. When Cassie fell ill from a devastating heart ailment and her surgeon was abducted by a mysterious wealthy man, Lang reluctantly returned to his life of crime in an effort to save his daughter’s life.
Assuming scientist Hank Pym’s home might offer expensive equipment to pawn for cash, Lang broke in, but discovered something far more valuable—unbeknownst to him, he was staring his future in the face. He left the home with Pym’s old Ant-Man gear and uniform, left over from the scientist’s early days as a Super Hero with the Avengers, and set out to use it to rescue Cassie’s surgeon.
