Hat's off to Slott for washing away years of abuse of the character and actually making him cool. I don't know what Pym was like in the old times, but if he was anything like this, that just makes what they've don with him in the recent years worse.

Ya I have never liked Pym as much as do now he is awesome The Wasp is his best persona "
I honestly thought I was going to hate the Wasp thing. "
Same I thought it was going to be him just like not being able to let go of Janet living in the past and just being a miserable @%$# but I was happily proved wrong.

Yeah, he's great on Ultimate Spider-Man, but New Avengers lately has been lacking, the thrid annual that came out was the only thing that made me change my mind about dropping the book all together.

It's the same stuff over and over.He doesn't do anything interesting with them.He finds one huge group and puts them against the New Avengers and then repeats it.

They should have killed him off instead of Janet.

I know! He could do so much more with the team, but he just throws the Hood at them in every freakin' arc, I mean right when you think they and Dr. Strange beat him, Bendis just throws in Loki and he's back hunting the Avengers. I'm probably going to hate the Seige story arc...

Not recently no. But I've read enough Avengers stories from back in the day to know (in my opinion of course) that no matter what he does he will always be a lame ass. Its his character to be despised. Even if the whole beating his wife thing doesn't factor in, there are so many other reasons why he's just a scrub. Ultron being one, destroying Janet's clothes just cause she's taking to long to get dressed would be another. Dude's a scumbag.

See that is how I felt before I read Mighty Avengers.Dan Slott really knows how to turn a character around.There are no Avengers I despised more than Triathlon and Pym and Slott made both of them tolerable.I can't say Pym is one of my favorite characters now but I at least don't mind him sticking around.Kind of like Quicksilver.He's not my favorite Avenger or even one of them but it's nice to have him around.He evens the team out.

Dan Slott has a passion for the character though, he has really pushed it through to develop the character and show why as an original avenger he should be an a-list character
 
really recommend it . In just what Slott has had of his run on Mighty Avengers he has transformed Hank Pym from a character that I thought lame to my favorite original avenger and my second favorite avenger of all time

I agree, I like how Slott showed Hanks feeling about how it was like for him to be a founding Avenger along side Iron Man and Thor, and how when he found out Iron Man was Stark, he didn't feel like he brought anything to the table, and then showed him rise up over this and comes out a more greater hero then he has ever been before, just great character development right there.

Maybe I'll have to check it out. I doubt anything short of Pym sacrificing himself for the life of another would change my opinion of him though.

I know man, if it wasn't for Slott's great writing, I'd never have liked the book, I really don't give a crap about most of the team, non of them interest me except Hank and Stature, and sometimes Herc (but that's only because he's my backup Thor). I could care less about the other chatacters

How can you not love Quicksilver? He's such a douchebag
#71 Posted by Nighthunter (28582 posts) - - Show Bio

Seriously, Slott was the only reason I tried the book. Loved it ever since. 
 
Between all the sh!t that Bendis has put on the name (both in Dark, New and when he was writing it Mighty) is nice to see that there is one writer who still gets what being an Avenger is all about

#72 Posted by InnerVenom123 (29510 posts) - - Show Bio

I still hate his guts. Wife beaters don't get redeemed IMO.  
 
He's a nutjob, "I changed my name to "The Wasp" in her memory"...  no, dude, its because all codenames you've ever had suck badly, and you figure the name of your dead wife is an improvement. 
 
All joking aside, I still hate him.
