YellowJacket, also known as Ant Man and Giant Man (real name Henry "Hank" Pym) is one of the main protagonists from the TV Series The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

He was voiced by Wally Wingert.

Story

Hank is less interested in being a superhero than he is in being a Scientist. Unlike the emotionally stunted and depressed (early) Hank of the comics, this Hank is a relatively charming and cheerful individual. He agrees to join the Avengers mostly to be close to, please, and look after Jan, who he has reciprocated feelings for. Hank is capable of using both his Ant-Man and Giant Man power sets in the series. However, Hank would much prefer a more intellectual solution to a problem, rather than resort to a violent confrontation. Despite his more open personality he still feels heavy guilt and conflict from both the creation and disaster of Ultron and the actions he has taken as an avenger, leading him to leave the team over Wasps strong objections. He eventually hands over the ant man suit to Scott Lang after the man steals it to get money to save his daughter Cassie (the future young avenger Stature). In the latter half of the second season, Tony Stark and Jan visit Grayburn College following an invitation from Hank. After dismissing Jan, Hank proposes a new micro-prison to Tony in an attempt to rectify the original initiative. It's immediately apparent to Tony that Hank is unstable, as is the technology his former teammate is proposing, and asks him to work in a safer environment at Stark Tower. Insulted, Hank demands that they both leave. But upon doing so, an explosion goes off in Hank's lab, and the former Avenger is presumed dead. At Pym's funeral and following a eulogy by Tony, Nick Fury presents evidence to Tony and Jan that Hank may have in-fact been murdered. Suddenly, a vigilante calling himself Yellowjacket appears in New York, seemingly "disposing" of members of the Serpent Society he confronts, and claiming to have killed the former Ant-Man. When the Avengers try to stop him, Jan becomes convinced that he is in-fact Hank Pym, and tries to reach out to him. She's correct, and he explains that now he's strong enough to do what "Hank" couldn't do to stop "the bad guys." Iron Man and Yellowjacket's laser blasts clash, and the Avengers and Hank are all sent within the micro-prison Hank proposed earlier. As it happens, the members of the Serpent Society were still alive, within the prison. Tony and Jan again try to reach out to Hank in an attempt to reach the man that wished to rehabilitate villains. But the unstable micro-prison begins to collapse upon itself, and Hank is just barely able to save them all, including Jan. Afterwards, Jan argues to let Hank rejoin the team, with Tony reluctantly agreeing. Hank's personality is drastically different for the remainder of the show. He is no longer the pacifist hero, but is rather a hardened fighter, with little regard for his own safety or the safety of others.

Abilities

When active as Ant-Man or Yellowjacket, Pym "had the strength of a man of his age, height, and build who engages in intensive regular exercise". When shrank to insect-size, he still had the same strength. As Giant Man or Goliath, his strength varied depending on his height. When 10 feet tall Pym can lift about 0.5 ton. Greater heights give him enormous mass and strain his movement, but can be used to give him boosts of strength. When 100 feet tall, Pym can lift almost 100+ tons. This is considered his maximum size and strength level.

Pym has, at times, shrunk a "variety of weaponry, provisions, and scientific instruments" to microscopic size, allowing him to carry said provisions in his pockets. He can restore them to the original size at will.
