    Boyfriend Lost

    When Chris seemingly disappeared after wearing the newest Ant-Man costume (he actually had shrunken in size), Chris' college and friend Eric O'Grady took his chances and took a shot at Veronica. He falsly told her that Chris was cheating on her. Veronica was extremely mad and disapointed and wanted to find Chris as soon as she could. It was however that moment that Hydra attacked the S.H.I.E.L.D. base. During these attacks, Chris was killed in action while wearing the Ant-Man suit. Eric took the suit from him during the battle to become the new Ant-Man. Later on, both Veronica and Eric griefed over the loss of their good friend Chris. The two drew closer to eachother because of their shared grief over Chris, and soon started dating and even slept together once. Veronica however thought it was wrong for them to be together at that moment, still greaving for Chris, and the two split up. She still thought Chris had cheated on her. Not soon however, Veronica became pregnant of Eric's child.

    It was then that Eric confessed to Veronica all the horrible thing he had done and said to her. He told her that he would never be good enough for her and that he was sorry he could not be there for her. He left, and Veronica has not been seen since. Whether she had the baby or not remains to be seen.
