Plot

During the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D., low level agent Eric O'Grady stole an experimental Ant-Man suit and has been using it to commit petty crimes and stay under the radar ever since. While this is a nuisance, it isn't the biggest problem that Ant-Man and the Wasp find themselves up against. A horde of disgruntled former AIM employees come together and rebuild the organization, with its leader, George Tarleton, slowly mutating himself into the maniacal mastermind M.O.D.O.C.!
