When Henry Pym first discovered his size-reducing serum, he became trapped in an anthill and was pursued by the ants within. He escaped with the help of a friendly ant and restored himself to his normal size. The incident triggered an interest in ants in Pym, and he theorized that ants communicate through electrical waves transmitted through their antennae. After months of work, Pym succeeded in creating his first "cybernetic helmet," which would enable him to communicate with ants through transmitting and receiving psionic / electrical waves. Through this helmet, he managed to control a number of ants who would help him in his adventures as Ant-Man. He passed this technology on to Scott Lang to use as Ant-Man.
A.I.M. steals the Pym Particles from Ant-Man. Upon hearing what happened to Avengers Tower during the fight with Ultron, Ant-Man allows Iron Man, Hawkeye and Thor to use his lab within an anthill. His lab is shown to have an A.I. named J.O.E.Y. (his version of J.A.R.V.I.S.). His flying ant Euclid has taken a liking to Hawkeye and Thor tests his strength against the ants Newton and Tesla. Ant-Man helps out Iron Man, Hawkeye and Thor to battle M.O.D.O.K. when M.O.D.O.K. uses the Pym Particles to grow out of the cybernetics to keep from being taken over by Ultron. With advice from Ant-Man, Iron Man was able to remove the Pym Particles from M.O.D.O.K.K's body during an attack on an amusement park. After M.O.D.O.K. is left tied up for S.H.I.E.L.D., Ant-Man joins up with Iron Man so that there can be another genius for the Avengers.
