View full history
Pym particles first existed in an elixir form that had to be splashed on the object to enlarge or shrink it. Eventually this elixir was made into a gas so if could be quickly aspirated for easier transportation. After accidentally transforming into Giant-Man, Pym further refined the chemical into a variety of color-coded pills. The particles still proved unstable as they trapped Pym at a height of 12 feet. Pym Particles work by the user either shunting mass to the Kosmos Dimension (for shrinking) or taking mass (for growing).
After repeated exposure to an unknown amount of Pym Particles, users can change size without having to take any more Pym Particles to trigger the change. Examples of this are Hank Pym, Janet van Dyne, and Cassie Lang. Most of their uniforms are treated with Pym Particles so that they grow and shrink as the users do.

Side effects of Pym Particles
Some users of Pym Particles have had some side effects as a result of using them too much. The most notable is Hank Pym. Hank had several mental breakdowns from the strain of using Pym Particles, causing him to react differently from how he normally does. During one breakdown he thought he was another person named Yellowjacket, who was worthy of marrying the Wasp. Another time, Hank couldn't shrink down from his giant form, otherwise the strain on his body would kill him.
