The Wasp, real name Janet van Dyne, was a young, popular superhero a founding member of the Avengers.

Apart from her size manipulation powers, Janet's most significant quality was his approachability, that many said made her the "heart of the Avengers".


Janet van Dyne was already the Wasp before joining the Avengers. Prior to joining the team, she helped defeat Ultron when he was first activated. 

Along with the Hulk, Falcon, and Thor, Wasp was one of the heroes summoned to aid Captain America, iron Man, and Scarlet Witch in defeating the Skrull invasion. In the aftermath of that conflict, Captain America suggested that the seven heroes band together to form the Avengers. Wasp was the first to agree to Captain America's proposal. 

Wasp served with distinction through the early phase of the Avenger's existence, although her sometimes brash and impulsive nature tended to clash with her teammates' personalities. Later, when the Kree began hunting the Avengers, Wasp was reluctant to reveal her real name to the group, but Iron Man was already aware of it.
