Hank Pym respect thread

#1 Posted by Loki9876 (3051 posts) - - Show Bio

Well almost every character has a respect thread (even stilt-man) so why not one of my favorite characters Hank Pym.
I know people can't stand him but I really like him. So if you like Hank Pym don't let me be alone and commend.

I always wanted a pocket full of Pym particles too

Hank Pym is the greatest Avenger of all time. Simple as that.

Amongst Hank's feats we have;
  • Declared Scientist Supreme by Eternity
  • Used his Pym Particles to grow beyond reality and encounter Eternity
  • Created Heaven. Yes, Heaven.
  • Used the Infinite Avengers Mansion to maintain the molecular integrity of Jan after her death; enabling her to be brought back
  • He's considered God of Artificial Intelligence. Ultron's design was so perfect that it was ultimately a flaw. 
  • Knocked out Egghead, who has a Kingpin-esque physique, with one blow
  • Defeated Chthon
  • Created the Infinite Avengers Mansion (the most impressive piece of teleportation/space bending technology created in the MU)
  • Called Reed Richards a bitch
  • Was the catalyst behind Loki's sacrifice in Siege
  • Discovered Pym Particles
  • Defeated a Cosmic Cube empowered Absorbing Man
  • Called Reed Richards a bitch
  • With the help of the Mighty Avengers, which he was leading, defeated the Unspoken, who was arguably more powerful than Black Bolt (who's in the top 5 most powerful superhumans on Earth)
  • Defeated Reed Richards in single combat based solely on the use of scientific equipment
  • Infiltrated the Baxter Building, outsmarting Richards' insanely state-of-the-art security system
  • Knocked out the Leader (not that impressive, mostly just cool)
  • Called Reed Richards a bitch

@DH69: Apparently I'm immature cause I chuckled about you saying Hank Pym has grown, not in any dirty way it just seemed like a pun

Pym is awesome...and I am also a huge fan!

#11 Posted by ScientistSupreme (6 posts) - - Show Bio

Hank is definitely the best Avenger ever in my mind, and so many people seem to forget that it was Hank who first proposed that the Avengers stick together and make a team, not Hulk, Iron Man, or Thor. And Janet came up with the name "Avengers".

Back in the WCA, when Wanda was having trouble making her hex powers work the way she wanted them to, Hank figured out how before she did and had her test his theory in his lab. And he was proven correct when her hex powers didn't backfire in the experiment. Unfortunately, her powers also changed the results he'd recorded just seconds later, alluding to her reality warping ability. He was pretty good with understanding magic even back then!

@ScientistSupreme: If you ask me his willingness to accept magic makes him a better scientist than both Reed and Iron man

Hank Pym is definitely one of my top 5 favorite comic book characters.  Calling Reed Richards a bitch was just freakin classic! lol


#14 Posted by misternegative (31 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm a massive fan of Pym and i'm glad to find other fans! I hate it when he finally gets rid of the stigma of being a wife beater; no that its a forgivable thing but when he resolves the past issues with Janet and then all of a sudden someone comes along and brings it all back to the surface. His character in Mighty Avengers was what made the series for me and it sucks that the team was sidelined for the idea of the "heroic age" Hank was bringing that back on his own with his team!

Pym is definitely my favorite hero, and I've always been surprised that he hasn't been more popular. If you ask me he is one of the most successful and developed heroes out there. I'm disappointed that he isn't going to be in the Avengers movie but with the news of his own movie on it's way I'm hoping he'll finally get the respect he deserves. I'm actually going to be getting an Ant-man/Giant-man tattoo soon! Pym is a character who definitely deserves respect as one of the defining forces of the marvel universe. It's awesome to know there are other fans that love him just as much as I do!

I <3 Hank Pym


Simple as that. The dude may or may not be my favorite Avenger of all time. Why? Well since nobody's posted the image, I'll do it!

   

Pym is so awesome =D

Gotta love Pym. I hope the movie paints him in a good light and paves the way for appearances in the Avengers movie franchise.

He doesn't have the wings anymore. Last time I checked, he's growing and shrinking. Mostly growing as Giant-Man.

@Loki9876: 
Actually, the wings have been biografted to his back. They're still there, but they only appear while he's in a diminutive state, just like with Jan.

I would read a solo title book just called "Pym" where in every issue he either invented a new superpower or struck a woman, child, or small fluffy animal in anger.

@VampireSelektor: oh so he actually still has his wings just only when he's in small form thanks for the info Do you know if he still carries his shrinken gadgets with him

Christos Gage has this Whedon-like knack for expanding on the power set of his characters. Having the ability to shift into different planes of existence easily places him shoulder to shoulder among the most powerful Avengers.

I like Hank. He's one of my favourite Avengers, maybe my favourite of the original team(him or Janet). Cool costumes, great discoveries and achievements, interesting character to read about. Very respectable. :)

Wow. I've always underestimated Hank and never saw him as being powerful,but after looking at the scans above,he is easily to size changers as The Flash is to speedsters

Its funny how Hank has been around for so long and still haven't got his own ongoing. Like if you want to read Antman you have to read Avengers.

Lots of nice scans.
