"So, how do you want to start this?"

"Well, Doc, you know I’ve always been a fan of Atom Ant"

"Atom Ant?"

"Not a fan of the classics? Atom Ant? You know, the super strong, flying ant? I really looked up to that guy… not literally, obviously."

"Not anymore, anyway."

"Good point."

"So, do you think that Atom Ant has any relevance to your current… um…"

"My current what?"

"Your current, shall we say, identity crisis?"

"No, I don’t think so. I’m a super hero. Atom Ant was a cartoon."

"You know, there is a thin line between a superhero, and a loony, don’t you?"

"Absolutely! You should meet some of the wack jobs I’ve had to work with!? Poodle Girl. Papier Mache Lad. Black Hitler. Slightly Off Kilter Boy. I mean, can you imagine?"

"And what’s your super hero name again?"

"Ant Man. They call me Ant Man."

"And why do you call yourself that again?"

"Because that’s what I am! Do I really have to go through this again, Doc?"

"I think you’d better."

"Alright… so, I was originally an ant, right? Just one of a colony. Invisible. Indivisible. Anonymous. Happy, right? So one day I’m foraging for some food with my ant buddies out by the nuclear facility when suddenly, without warning… WHAM! I got stepped on by a radioactive human."

"And yet you survived?"

"Damned right I did! Not only did I survive though, but I gained the proportionate size, strength and speed of… A HUMAN! From that day on, I was destined to be known as… ANT MAN!"

"Not Man Ant?"

"Don’t be ridiculous."

"So how did your parents feel about this."

"Not sure. In my rush to run home and tell them, I… uh, forgot about my proportionate human size and all."

"So what happened?"

"I stepped on them. At least, I think it was them. It’s so hard to tell one ant from another all the way up here, you know?"

"How did you tell each other apart when you were an ant?"

"Name tags."

"Right. So what happened then?"

"Well, I tried to make it as an ant for a couple of weeks, but it’s really hard to steal food from peoples picnics when you’re a six foot ant man with no discernible clothing."

"I can imagine."

"So I decided to pack up my things and say goodbye to the colony. That was when I became a superhero."

"And how did that work out for you?"

"Not too bad. I was in the Avengers for a while."


"No, not really. But I looked through their toilet window once. They’re not kidding when they say that Thor is the God of thunder, I can tell you."

"That’s a cheap joke."

"Hey, it’s a cheap life."

"Anything you want to add before the session ends."

"Just that I fight for truth, justice and anything sticky that falls on the floor."

"Thanks Ant Man."

"Pleasure, Doc."

@feebadger: Somebody's already writing Ant Man. You have to delete this. Send me, and a PM with the character you want, what your first arc is, and a small snippet of your first chapter before you write a character. Sorry, we just have an approval system so we only get the best quality from our writers.

@primepower53: Oh. I checked the Marvel Genesis: Centre thread and there was no mention of Ant Man there. A Hank Pym story but this is very different to Hank Pym. Oh well.

I'll take the Marvel Genesis out of the title and just leave it as my own fan fic instead of deleting it. This is the third story i have tried to contribute to fan fic which has been knocked back. I NEVER KNEW FAN FIC WAS SO DANGED HARD TO BE A PART OF! ;P

I may give the whole group fan fic thing a miss for the moment and just write my own fan fic for a bit. Thanks anyway primepower. Hope your new Marvel universe is coming along well. It looks like you have a mighty impressive roster.

@primepower53: Just went through the Marvel Wiki characters and there doesn't seem to be any mention of Ant Man. Are you suuuuure someone's writing him?

@feebadger: Well, someone's writing Hank Pym and may have the idea of turning him into Ant-Man.

@CapFanboy: You Marvel Genesis editors are a tough bunch i tell ya! ;) I've had work published in magazines and anthology books and i've never had to work so hard to try and get my stuff included. hehe. Much respect to you for keeping a tight rein on your creation gents. I'll delete the Ant Man story and repost it without the Marvel Genesis on it to avoid confusion. You might want to unpin the Centre thread and update your wiki though guys as i don't think Hank Pym is mentioned in that one. Good luck to you gents, thanks for your time and maybe we can work together on a project in the future.

@feebadger: sorry...

@feebadger: Sorry about that pal xD It's just we want to keep everyone happy. A mod has been contacted to unpin it and replace it with the new version though. If you want to write a different ant-man you could always ask who writes Hank and sort something out.

@primepower53: @CapFanboy: That's alright guys, no need to apologise. I appreciate your efforts. Editing is a tough gig. I've posted up the first two Ant Man posts as their own fan fic so it's all good.

@feebadger: That's pretty cool man! I don't know who the two people talking are though, but the dialog is engaging. Good work

This is very funny @feebadger is there more? I'm guessing yes by the part 1 (but then again some things start but don't finish....)

#12 Posted by feebadger (1454 posts) - - Show Bio

There is most definitely more, good sir. If you scroll down to the bottom of the story there's a link that takes you to the next part. There's about six in all, i think with a few more to come. Thanks for the kind word and for reading and a belated welcome to the Vine for you! Look forward to seeing you about the place.
