Ability to shrink and communicate with insects.
Scott Lang turned to burglary when his occupation as an electronics expert failed to support his family. Apprehended, he served his prison sentence and was paroled after three years for good behavior.
In prison, Lang furthered his study of electronics and was soon hired by Stark International to work in its design department. When his daughter Cassie became seriously ill, Lang decided to return to burglary as a final resort.
He broke into the home of Dr. Henry Pym and stole his Ant-Man uniform and shrinking gas canisters. Garbed as Ant-Man, Lang broke into Cross Technological Enterprises and discovered that Dr. Sondheim, the only person capable of helping his daughter, was being held prisoner. He rescued the doctor and was relieved when Sondheim was able to save the life of his beloved Cassie.
Lang had intended to return the Ant-Man costume to Pym and turn himself in for its theft but Pym, aware of the use to which Lang had put the stolen goods, offered to let him keep them, provided he only use them to uphold the law.
Shortly after, Lang donned the Ant-Man costume on various occasions to assist Iron Man and the Avengers, and briefly was hired by the Fantastic Four when Reed Richards was missing and presumed dead.
After Lang's ex-wife gained custody of their daughter Cassie, Lang accepted an offer to join the Avengers officially. His personality clashed immediately with fellow Avenger Jack of Hearts. However, shortly before Jack committed suicide in The Avengers (3rd series) #76, Jack helped save Cassie from a child-murderer.
Lang dated private investigator and former superhero Jessica Jones briefly, and Purple Man used his powers to make him appear dead to Jessica, but their relationship was broken off when he learned Jessica was pregnant with the child of Luke Cage, another superhero. Shortly afterward, during a catastrophic episode when the reality-altering former Avenger the Scarlet Witch went insane, she resurrected Jack of Hearts, who against his will returned to Avengers Mansion and blew half of it up, killing Lang in the process.
Lang's daughter Cassie has taken up his mantle as Stature, in the Young Avengers.
First appeared as Scott Lang in Avengers #181, and as Ant-Man in Marvel Premiere #47.
