Insect Queen and Ant-Man



After the enormous cast and giant stakes of Avengers: Infinity War, I am looking forward to the smaller scale (in more ways than one) Ant-Man and The Wasp.  I especially am intrigued by the casting of Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet Van Dyne, and hope we get to see more footage of the originals in action.  The Ghost looks very cool from the trailer, and promises to be an interesting adversary.  Laurence Fishburne as Bill Foster mentions his time as Goliath, can we hope to see a flashback of him in full superhero form as well?

I can see the beginning of a new team Ant Man, Wasp, Yellowjacket(Pym in some form) Insect Queen. Cant think of any other insect based heroes right now but this idea I'd love to see more of

Nice play on names for this team up.

To add to Adam Ant -

Adam Ant: Scott stop using helmet to tell me what to do
Ant -Man: Sorry, habit.

Isn't it Atom Ant, not Adam Ant? (Adam Ant is a singer.)
All these insect heroes could always battle SWARM!

Fly-Man from the Mighty Crusaders would be a natural fit.

Or the H.I.V.E.

...red bee and bumble bee and blue beetles and green hornets and yellow jackets and human fly and the fly and fly girl and black widows and hundred of other bug and insect characters from all of comic book history....
...too many to even try to name them all....
Another great cover Rosa...

ROSS... i meant Ross not Rosa... dang fat fingers...
My Bad... Sorry....

jackel said...

Hey Ross i had an idea...
how about Justice League live action movie Aguaman and Dwayne the Rock as Moai fighting Radioactive Man from the Simpsons...
...it could be called "Nuclear Fishing"???

Ross said...

Some of those tiny heroes have met on the blog before as Microforce. Picard and Professor X have met as well.

I agree with Glenn regarding the use of the Lang name. I also second his Ant-Man/Atom Ant dialogue!

For something a little different, maybe you could just team up Insect Queen and the Wasp, with the title "Fly Girls"! I'm not sure there are enough insect-themed superheroines to fill out an entire team by that name. (I know harry and jackel listed several individuals, but lack of capitalization and punctuation makes those lists incredibly hard for me to read.)

The Silver Fox said...

Extrapolating from other commenters' suggestions:

1. How about a crossover with Atom Ant (the cartoon superhero) and Adam Ant (the singer)?

2. How about Radioactive Man from The Simpsons against the Thor and Avengers villain of the same name?

3. How about if Insect Queen and the Wasp, calling themselves the Fly Girls (as suggested above by Bob Greenwade), have to deal with the "real" Fly Girl (a/k/a Fly-Girl and Flygirl), Fly Man's partner?

jackel said...

...to add to Silver Fox's suggestion of Atom Ant and Adam Ant we could also add British time displaced adventurer Adam Adamant...
....i am sure that the series had some comic strip version somewhere....

YES!!!!! It's about time you paired these two. :-)

As to the Ghost? Interesting choice of cinematic foe to pit Scott against, considering the former debuted in the comics as an Iron Man antagonist. Could this mean Mr. Lang is working for Stark Industries, now? Perhaps under an alias?

This is brilliant.

Or it could, for some reason, be the one who debuted [at Charlton, but with later DC appearances too IIRC] as an opponent of Captain Atom...

@Simreeve: the dimension-hopping Ghost from Silver Age Charlton-Earth could have fled to Marvel Earth-616 to escape the so-called "Streamlining" of Infinite Earths. But, me? I've always felt that the Iron Man foe might be the original Firebrand (given their anti-corporate motifs)!
