If Hank and/or Janet wind up working for AIM, and entering the MCU as bad guys (even if they change their colors later on) who fight SHIELD and Stark Industries, there is absolutely no way in hell they would ever be granted membership to the Avengers at some later date. They'd be wayyyy too much of a security risk; not to mention that Stark would probably take it very personally, if he was on the receiving end of AIM's shenanigans.
Put Pym and Janet in AIM, and you've virtually written them out of the Avengers, the group they, you know, actually belong to....? Remember....? Nice going.
You`ve got me all wrong and Spideyboy just got the gist of the concept I`m getting at.
They wouldn`t be villains at all.
Well Pym may not want to be a hero until he sees the problem he created come back to haunt him... but that doesn`t make him a villain.
Shield chased them away.
Selvig makes reference to this in the first Thor.
They ended up working for AIM, but only because AIM is operating under the radar right now and so is Jan.
She doesn`t know much about Stark at this point.
She wouldn`t be working against him at all and if they`d went all the way with it she`d be actively searching for him at AIM. As it stands I think she thinks Stark is involved with AIM (which he is) and she knows he`s involved with Shield (who she doesn`t like at this point and almost blames as much as AIM for Pym`s disappearance.
Stark lets her know she can trust them, whoever she is, but she`s not telling.
We have to wait until the end to find out who she is and why she`s interested in AIM.
In the past AIM was even more innocuous seeming, but whatever happened means she`s not actually working with AIM.
More like trying to stop whatever they`re doing with this technology from a different angle Stark doesn`t know about yet.
The idea is to make Wasp as much of a leader as Iron Man and Cap.
She makes her own clothes & superhero costumes that can interact with the pym paticles.
And she chooses her own missions now.
