First Post-Reboot Appearance: ASTONISHING ANT-MAN #1.
History: Dr. Henry Pym is a brilliant particle physicist with a solid knowledge of other scientific fields. A brilliant scientist, Dr. Pym earned his Ph.D. in Particle Physics in less than ten years after graduating high school. Employed by Dynatechnics (a materials science firm with contracts with nearly every manufacturing company in the world, headquartered in Chicago but with offices across the Rust Belt), Dr. Pym discovered the existence of sub-atomic particles which interacted with an extradimensional realm where mass is virtual instead of real, allowing people and objects to shrink to microscopic size and then return to normal. In his spare time, Dr. Pym studied ants, and discovered a means of communicating with them using an electronic helmet he had designed.

One night while late in the lab he accidentally shrunk himself and who he thought was a security guard to a fraction of an inch tall and wound up inside the lab's ant farm without his communications helmet. After a harrowing adventure, he managed to escape the ant farm and return to his normal height, but not before befriending and saving the life of the ant colony's queen.

Suspecting that a recent accident in the facility was the work of either industrial espionage or agents working for a foreign government, Dr. Pym put his scientific knowledge to good use in tracking down and bringing the culprit to justice. Following that, he designed the identity of Ant-Man, calling on his insect friends for aid whenever he needs help.

He is currently dating Janet van Dyne, who has become his partner in crime-fighting as the Wasp. Ant-Man and Wasp have become founding members of the Avengers.
Age: 29.
Height: 6'.
Weight: 185 lbs.
Eyes: Brown.
Hair: Brown.
Uniform: Red armored bodysuit with black trim, blue gloves, black boots, and a metallic helmet with a voice amplifier in front of his mouth.
Strength Level: Ant-Man possesses the normal human strength of a man his age, height, and build who engages in moderate regular exercise. Ant-Man retains his normal strength when he shrinks down to the size of an ant, around 0.5 inch.
Known Superhuman Powers: Ant-Man possesses the ability, through use of his Pym Particles, to shrink to one-half inch in height. While shrunk, the bulk of his mass is shunted extradimensionally. Because of this, he retains his full human strength while shrunk.
Other Abilities: Ant-Man is well-versed in the scientific fields of particle physics, biochemistry, and robotics. In college he was known as a skilled boxer; he maintains his boxing skills today.
Paraphernalia: Ant-Man's helmet permits him to communicate with ants. In addition, his helmet has a built-in speaker enabling him to be heard by normal-sized folks when he's at his 0.5 inch height.

Ant-Man's belt contains capsules which store his Pym Particles. He no longer relies on them to change his size, but carries them for emergencies and assisting others.

As Ant-Man, Pym carries a number of devices he's cooked up miniaturized in pouches until he needs them.

Role-Playing Notes:

Hank Pym is a hero who isn't entirely sure why he's doing things the way he's doing them. At heart, he's a scientist, one of the best multidisciplinary scientists in the world; however, he's always held himself to impossibly high standards, comparing himself to such men as Reed Richards, Tony Stark, and Victor von Duum and in his mind coming up short. His creation of Ultron is the one thing he deeply regrets; that he accidentally created an advanced AI without assistance hasn't sunk in due to his guilt over Ultron's actions.

Ant-Man's Armor

Ant-Man wears an experimental suit made of lightweight, durable materials developed by a coworker at his think-tank. This armor is not as durable as Iron Man's suit, but still provides remarkable protection against conventional and most laser weaponry. His helmet is made of the same materials, and provides protection against all but the most powerful handguns.

The armor includes biomedical sensors, a waste relief system, a micro-climate control system enabling him to remain comfortable from -140°F (-95.5°C) to 140°F (60°C), and decent radiation protection. In addition to the loudspeaker and the ability to communication with ants and other higher insects, the helmet comes with a retractable faceplate, a built-in GPS, a short-range radio, hearing protection, infrared sights, and air filters.
