History

Quote1 For me, Ant-Man wasn't enough, now I'm Giant-Man. I figure if that doesn't make me tough enough, someday I'll invent another persona. Quote2
-- Hank Pym

Early Years

The Pyms where on their honeymoon in Hungary, where they were unexpectedly confronted by a hit-man hired to assassinate him and his wife due to him trying to escape a group of notorious guerrillas trying to threaten him into working for them by making advanced weapons. Henry "Hank" Pym was shot and miraculously survived the assassination attempt, but Maria unfortunately didn't. Years later, he met a woman and a fellow science enthusiast named Janet van Dyne while they were first working at a clandestine peace-keeping organization, whom he eventually fell in love with and decided to get married later on, restarting a new chapter in his life as he leaves his painful past behind, for the better.

Creating the Pym Particles

Back in the United States working in the worldwide peace-keeping organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D., Pym discovered a rare group of subatomic particles, which have become known as the "Pym Particles." Thinking that S.H.I.E.L.D. might find out about the particles, Pym kept both of them in a vault after realizing that he could get arrested for creating a serum without the authority from the organization.

Avengers Initiative

He later quits the team without telling his true reasons until it was later found by the organization. Instead of arresting Pym, Nick Fury and the rest of S.H.I.E.L.D. were impressed about his finest works, especially with the particles and offered him another chance to rejoin S.H.I.E.L.D. once again, convinced recruiting him and his wife Janet into the classified S.H.I.E.L.D. contract known as the Avengers Initiative, a contract S.H.I.E.L.D. created to form a team of super-powered individuals.

Reviving Captain America

After locating the approximate area the crash site of the Valkyrie may be located, Nick Fury sent a team led by Hank himself to find the crash site on Greenland. Captain America's (Steve Rogers) body was found inside the wrecked aircraft, perfectly preserved in ice. His body was later defrosted and then shipped to S.H.I.E.L.D. Headquarters in New York City, where he later woke up into the modern world of the 21st century.

Chitauri Invasion

With the world yet again being threatened, Hank and Janet was finally convinced to join the newly-established Avengers and helped the defeat of the Chitauri and Loki, preventing the worsening of the event, known as the Chitauri Invasion from taking too many more lives, and the entire Earth itself in the process. Years throughout Hank's heroic career and duty, he has acted under many memorable identities, such as the Ant-Man, Giant-Man, Goliath, Yellowjacket, and briefly the Wasp, after Janet's momentary retirement.
