Why Hank Pym did not get Illuminati membership

Cause they already had Reed Richards would be my guess.

Because as smart as he is I'm fairly certain that he does not control any substantial aspect of society. Admittedly I don't have a lot of Hank Pym knowledge, but unless you count the world's ant populace as a relevant niche I don't see him on the Illuminati.

well when the illuminati was first formed they werent really focusing on the "redemption of hank pym" yet, infact he was a skrull at the time, it wasnt until after the secret invasion that they actually brought him back into the spot light as a serious character, before sercret invasion he was just doing cameo appearances in the occasional issue of the avenger titles, and doing busy work for the initiative title.

Then when they started it up again recently he wasnt invited because it was just the original members with the addition of Black panther who was requested at the very beginning, and beast is there to take Professor X's spot

He's not in a movie or a writer favorite.

It has nothing to do with having a movie (Namor and Black Bolt are in the team), could be writer's preference i suppose.

Overall he doesn't bring anything new when you have Reed on the table.

I think its because he's been unstable but ironically isn't as cutthroat as the other members.

As much as people like to bash on him for wife beating (Myself included) he has to many morals to be part of the Illuminati.....
