20 Facts You Should Know About Ant-Man

Who is Ant-Man, anyways? Is he Hank Pym? Scott Lang? Plain ol' Ant-Man? It's hard to keep up with this ever-changing Marvel Comics character, so we're bringing you a list of Ant-Man (and Avengers) trivia to get you up to speed.

Ant-Man is a difficult character to pin down (literally and figuratively); his unique abilities and irregularities make him one of the most interesting and controversial Avengers characters. This is a guy who is a hero, but who has also been court marshaled then kicked off the Avengers, more than once... a guy who has helped the planet just as much as he's harmed it.

He's able to become new superheroes whenever he feels emasculated. And that's just the first guy, the best and brightest of the lot. The only one who wasn't a thief or S.H.I.E.L.D. agent turned thief. That's right there are not one, not two, but three Ant-Men.

Ant-Man, the movie, came out on July 17, 2015, and someone needed to sort through the myths and the years of continuity (this guy has been around more than 50 years, and most people didn't know his name until Marvel announced the movie!) to bring you the facts you should know before you see Paul Rudd put on that iconic helmet and become Ant-Man!
