Character Biography

Before you try on the mantle of the Man-ant,Scott Lang earned a living by theft. He was far from being a stupid guy and even had a good knowledge of electronics, but his work did not bring him enough profit to support his family. For his evil deeds, Lang was arrested for a long time, but for exemplary behavior he was released after three years. Scott hired a company of billionaire Tony Stark (better known as Iron Man). Since Lang was well versed in technology, he was entrusted with installing a new security system in the mansion of the superhero team "Avengers".

Superheroic formation

A new life as a law-abidingThe citizen did not last long. Everything changed dramatically when a daughter of Scott Lang found a serious illness. The only person who could help her was Dr. Eric Sondheim. However, he was kidnapped by the super-villain Darren Cross. In order to save the doctor and his daughter, Scott made his way to the home of Henry Pym (the original Ant-Man), and then kidnapped his costume and technology to reduce particles. After Scott Lang managed to save the doctor and his daughter, he confessed to Pim that he had stolen his equipment. Pym, in turn, did not become angry, but, on the contrary, allowed Scott to leave the suit for himself, provided that he continues to do good deeds. From this moment, the superhero career of the new Man-ant began.

Scott tried to rob famous scientist Hank Pym (who in this version is much older than his original from the comic book), but he, as it turned out, soon set up their meeting himself. Pym learned about Scott's thieves' talent and decided to use it for personal purposes. He said that his former student had lost his mind, took himself the nickname Yellow Jacket and was going to sell reducing technologies to terrorists from the criminal organization Hydra.
