    Hank Pym changes names and outfits more than most heros change socks!
    Well, it seems that way sometimes. What's your fav incarnation of ole High Pockets and why?

    Myself, I like them all but have always been partial to Yellow Jacket. The costume was a big hit with me as a kid. And I liked the Sting Gun, the holster, crazy Hank, it all =Badassed!

    I always liked Hank's Goliath suit, but it always confused me as a kid....it looked so much like an X-Men uniform that I spent a great deal of time assuming he *was* an X-Man.

    I'm also partial to Hank's Ultimate Giant-Man look. Very retro, and cool.

    My profound hope for this movie and Avengers sequels is that Scott Lang is Ant-Man, but Hank is Giant-Man. The team *needs* Giant-Man.

    Agreed. Yeah, the Ult.

    Giant-Man suit works ok for me as well.

    I like most of them, but blue & yellow Goliath suit edges it for me, not sure why.

    As far as the Goliath outfits are concerned, i was always partial to the red/blue one that was the same design as the yellow/blue one.

    Doctor Pym from the West Coast Avengers era.


    NO crazy stuff!

    NO crippling depression!

    He was a useful Avenger withOUT having to be all nuts and stuff.

    Being able to shrink and regrow stuff just by touch and having a whole arsenal at his fingertips.

    As a costumed super hero though its probably a toss up between him being Ant-Man and Giant-Man.

    When he was Yellowjacket he was a *****e.

    Goliath and Wasp era Pym are pretty good.

    I like the more sort of kooky science obsessed Pym in Mighty Avengers. Makes him more interesting & fun.

    I was also a pretty big fan of Hank's in the 'Giant-Man' stage that followed Yellow Jacket. The open faced mask, red outfit that was sleeveless.

    what makes sense to me is him being Giant-Man when he's serving as part of a team (preferably the Avengers). when he's solo or partnering with the Wasp, i think he should wear his "Wasp Tribute" costume and call himself 'Hornet.' no, i don't care that there were two other characters using that name. Hornet and the Wasp just makes too much sense.

    I used to really dig Yellowjacket, as growing up it was this persona I mostly saw him as. When they had him slap Janet and all that fallout, it was really unfortunate. I can live with him as Giant-man, but I'll always have a fondness for classic Yellowjacket.

    The whole split personality, Jan slap and Skrull Pym kind of ruined the YellowJacket persona

    I liked him best as Doctor Pym in the West Coast Avengers.

    Goliath
    Loved the goggle or glasses, whatever they were

    Would like to see a scene where someone taunts him for shrinking powers being less than worthy. Boom go to 60 feet and ***** slap the villain.

    I liked when he grew into Giant-Man and dropped kicked Abomination into orbit in the Avengers Earth's Mightiest Heroes cartoon :woot:
