Fictional character biographies

Hank Pym is a scientist, known as Ant-Man. He developed Pym particles, which allowed organic matter, including humans, to increase and decrease in size. His wife, Janet van Dyne is known as Wasp. She can also increase and decrease her size, however, she can also fly and use projectile weapons known as stingers.

Scott Lang is a thief who steals the Ant-Man suit and Pym particles to become Ant-Man himself. Hope Pym is Hank and Janet Pym's daughter.

Marvel comics

Hank Pym and Scott Lang are both Ant-Man at different points, and Janet van Dyne is the Wasp, in the primary Marvel universe.

Hope Pym is Hank and Janet Pym's daughter in an alternate universe, where she is the supervillain known as the Red Queen.

Marvel Cinematic Universe

Hank Pym and Janet van Dyne worked for S.H.I.E.L.D. as Ant-Man and the Wasp until Janet shrank down to the Quantum Realm in the 1970s and was considered lost. Hank resigned from S.H.I.E.L.D. and ceased being Ant-Man in the 1980s.

Hank and Janet Pym's daughter Hope became estranged from her father after her mother's disappearance and changed her name to Janet van Dyne. In the 2000s, Scott Lang stole the Ant-Man suit and Pym particles and became Ant-Man. After Scott helped Hank keep a competitor from duplicating and selling the Pym particles, Scott and Hope became the new Ant-Man and the Wasp.
