Best Ant-Man Comic

Fred Van Lente's expanded retelling of the original story that introduced Hank Pym as Ant-Man is a lost treasure.

It's funny, it's fun, this is the Marvel Adventures series at its best.
I consider it to be better than stories with other characters in the line.
Janet Van Dyne's appearance as a competent business woman who encourages Hank is a welcome change.
The humor falls back on the "mad 50's" science fiction.
It has none of the weight or hangups that haunt Pym in the regular Marvel comics.
Psycho-Man makes a great appearance as a boisterous would-be conqueror.
And best of all, Pym has two wise-cracking ant sidekicks.

    Fred Van Lente takes over from Paul Tobin as writer with this issue, and brings with him Hank Pym! This is an updated, reboot of Hank's origin as Ant-Man. It is thoroughly enjoyable. Right from the opening splash page.Hank is presenting his latest invention for a grant to Van Dyne Tech. Instead of using insecticide to get rid of home ant infestation, Hank has developed a helmet to communicate with ants and tell them to leave. Yes, it is a totally ridiculous "real-world" application of super hero...
