Henry Pym, or simply Hank Pym, is the first and original Ant-Man, as well as Giant Man. He is a former member of the Avengers.
Hank Pym is a renowned scientist who discovered and later isolated a rare type of subatomic particles that could alter the mass of living things or inanimate objects. He dubbed these Pym Particles, and found a way to create more of them and use them. Also having a bond with ants, Hank developed technology that could allow him to communicate with and influence ants. He then developed a suit that could utilize Pym Particles to shrink and grow, and a helmet that could communicate with ants. With this, he became the superhero Ant-Man. Hank also had a girlfriend named Janet Van Dyne, who was the superhero Wasp. When he retired as a super-hero he passed on his knowledge and his technology to his protege Scott Lang, who succeeded Hank as the second Ant-Man.
