In the EMH episode, he 'retires' fairly young and then becomes Yellowjacket. Hank Pym doesn't like using violence, it makes sense for him to quit early and give the mantle to someone else.
Plus, I'm not sure if they're even making Pym a superhero, or just a scientist who gives his tech or has it stolen by Lang.
