The Replacements: Hank Pym And The Legacy Of Ant-Man, Giant-Man And Yellowjacket

Ant-Man-Featured

Since the dawn of the Silver Age, legacy characters have been a staple of superhero fiction, and having a new character step into a well loved role can open up new opportunities for writers and artists to tell different kinds of stories. In The Replacements, we’ll look back at the notable and not-so-notable heroes and villains to assume some of the most iconic mantles in the superhero genre.

Hank Pym has been many things throughout his career, and he's a man of many names. He started out as Ant-Man, and shortly after joining The Avengers he became Giant-Man. He created the Yellowjacket personality after being expelled from the group, he went by his own name as Dr. Pym for a while, and he briefly adopted the codename The Wasp in honor of his fallen ex-wife, original Wasp Janet Van Dyne. This week we look at the proteges, successors, and even villains that have walked in the footsteps of Hank Pym.

ICYMI: Actually, ‘Astonishing Ant-Man’ Features The Most Obscure Villain Team In Comics

Lang's-Eleven

Last week, I stated confidently that The Maker’s team of New Revengers from the pages of New Avengers was the most obscure assembly of supervillains into one group, citing little known characters such as Asti and Skar as proof. It now seems that team may have held the distinction for one whole week, as this week’s issue of The Astonishing Ant-Man by Nick Spencer and Ramon Rosanas has potentially outdone them with a team I like to call Lang’s Eleven.

Admittedly there are only ten members, but it sounds better with Eleven, and Nick Spencer’s Sinister Six in Superior Foes of Spider-Man only had five members, so I feel like it works.

Hasbro’s Captain America and Iron Man are No Match for Black Panther [Review]

Marvel Legends Captain America Civil War Series

We've barely made it to the quarter-post of 2016, and already Hasbro's released three separate Marvel Legends waves into the wild. Captain America has been the focal point of two of those three, with Captain America: Civil War providing the inspiration for this latest collection. Not only do you get Civil War versions of Cap and Iron Man (yes, again), but you also get the first Marvel Cinematic Universe Black Panther. Some comic book faces like Nick Fury, Red Guardian and Nuke round out the line which is based around a spoilerish build-a-figure (don't worry, those images are all at very end if you want to keep it a secret).

Hot Toys’ Captain America: Civil War Ant-Man is Apparently Played by Ben Affleck

Hot Toys
Hot Toys

Hot Toys, we need to talk. For the most part, I appreciate all the effort put into the figures created by the talented team working for the company. The way Hot Toys is able to recreate the heroes and villains of cinema's most exciting characters must rely on some sort of ancient magic. Somewhere along the line these last few months, the magic well must have started drying up. Where costumes and accessories are still delightfully detailed, the once impeccable likenesses have started failing the characters they're modeled after. That's never been more apparent than the newest announcement, the Captain America: Civil War Ant-Man.

Hot Toys’ New Ant-Man Figure Comes With a Hawkeye Accessory

Hot Toys
Hot Toys

When they said Hawkeye and Ant-Man were both going to be in Captain America: Civil War, everyone in the world became Success Kid. By continually supporting the massive media juggernaut that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we'd arrived at the time when a live action version of the cover to Avengers #223 might actually happen. And then the most recent trailer arrived, and there it was; Hawkeye firing an arrow with a miniature Ant-Man saddled up for action like Slim Pickens.

Black Panther, Ant-Man and Vision Bring the Civil War to Disney Infinity

Disney Interactive
Disney Interactive

More Marvel goodness is coming to Disney Infinity this year, as the game will bring more of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's faces to life in video game form. While Disney Infinity's third installment has largely focused on various Star Wars stories, there was a smattering of Marvel characters released to bulk up the comic roster. Later this month, a new Captain America: Civil War inspired Captain America figure will release alongside Marvel Battlegrounds, a four-player co-op Play Set, where you and some friends can duke it out with the biggest and baddest in Marvel's corner of the Disney Infinity Universe.

Captain America won't be alone in getting a new figure however, as Disney revealed during its Disney Infinity Next stream a handful of hard traveled heroes that would make the leap to the successful video game franchise. Black Panther, Ant-Man and Vision will get their own spanking new figures, along with a new Power Disc pack that boasts new vehicles and power-ups for Disney Infinity. There's also a standalone Symbiote Spider-Man figure coming to help round out the Civil War connections, though he was already released as part of the PS Vita starter pack in 2014.

Ant-Man Rises to the Occasion With New SH Figuarts Figure

Tamashii Nations
Tamashii Nations

Ant-Man hasn't been a major fixture of the Captain America: Civil War promotion, but we've known he was going to be in the film ever since Falcon teased his imminent arrival with a post-credit blurb. Interestingly enough, there might be certain story reasons that Ant-Man's been absent from a lot of the toy line attention to this point, but we won't spoil that here today. No, instead, we're just going to take a look at the updated Ant-Man suit the character is apparently donning in the film.

Tamashii Nations' SH Figuarts Captain America: Civil War line already has its two biggest guns up for pre-order, but for the third character in the series, the company went with arguably the least well-known hero of the bunch. The SH Figuarts Ant-Man beats characters like Black Widow and Falcon to release, but that's sort of okay with us. It would be nice to get that Black Widow Figuarts after like sixty movies. Ant-Man doesn't exactly have a million toys exploding off of shelves either, but at least this time we know a Black Widow is almost definitely, probably, assuredly coming and not just a pipe dream. But hey, Ant-Man!

It’s Hulk vs. Ant-Man in the Coke Super Bowl Commercial

Ant Man Hulk Coke Super bowl

Earlier this week, Coca-Cola and Marvel teased a team-up during the Super Bowl by sending out mini-cans of Coke branded with different members of the Avengers. Both sides promised not to reveal the contents of the commercial until it aired during the Super Bowl. Now that it’s aired we know that the biggest and littlest Avengers — Hulk and Ant-Man — are doing battle over the last can of Coke.

Lego Marvel’s Avengers Getting Free Civil War and Ant-Man DLC Exclusively on PlayStation

TT Games
TT Games

Later this month, Lego Marvel's Avengers will let you play though brick-ified versions of almost all of the existing Marvel movies to this point (minus Thor, Iron Man and Iron Man 2). With six movies to cover, you'd think Lego Marvel's Avengers would be satisfied with content at the start, but that's just not the case. On day one, TT Games is already prepping two new downloadable content packs to add even more MCU action into the fold. Provided you're playing on a PlayStation console.

There's a fair mix of Phase 1 and Phase 2 Marvel films included in the connecting story missions in Lego Avengers, but one curious exclusion was Ant-Man. As the final film of the second wave of Marvel movies, it made sense in a way that it wasn't part of the core game. Ant-Man wasn't actually a member of the Avengers like the rest of the solo movie stars, but as it turns out, Ant-Man will be included with Lego Marvel's Avengers after all, just as an add-on. And yes, that includes Ant-thony.
