Real Name: Henry Jonathan Pym
Height: 6’
Weight: 185 lb
Age: 32
Hair: Blond, short
Eyes: Blue
Uniform: Red-and-black armored suit, sealed silver helmet with red visor, black boots and gloves
Powers: Naturally, none. Using the Ant-Man suit, he can shrink to a size of just under 1.5 inches. While shrunk, he has greatly reduced strength and speed, but retains a high level of durability relative to his size.
Skills: High intelligence and training in various scientific skills - in particular, chemistry, particle physics, electronics, and robotics. Proficiency in unarmed combat.

Dr. Hank Pym is a genius particle physicist and biochemist. Out of grad school, he spent a few years working as a researcher before his girlfriend, Janet Van Dyne, convinced him that he had the skills to be successful on his own. Listening to her advice was a gamble that paid off, as within a year of working for himself, he accomplished a miraculous breakthrough with the invention of the Pym particle. The details of how said particles work are a mystery to everyone except Pym himself (and maybe even him). When pressed, he’s given several contradictory explanations, from shunting mass extra-dimensionally to altering the space between atoms. What is known is that, within limits, Pym particles allow the alteration of the size and mass of objects. Inspired by the heroics of fellow scientist Reed Richards and the Fantastic Four, Pym experimented until he was able to create a system allowing the safe shrinking of humans. This allowed the creation of the Ant-Man suit, and later the Wasp that he gave to Janet. A year and a half ago, Ant-Man and the Wasp became founding members of the new superhero team the Avengers. Pym’s ego and stubbornness has led to numerous clashes with Tony Stark (and to a lesser extent Bruce Banner), but the team has become a functioning unit.

Pym is painfully aware of the limits of his technology, and he is always striving to improve it. In particular, he is attempting to reduce the safe minimum size achievable through Pym particles. At the moment, this is roughly a factor of 50, making his shrunken form just under an inch and a half tall. This makes his superhero name a bit misleading, but “Roach-Man” doesn’t sound as good. Pym is also experimenting with pheromones and sound frequencies that may allow communication with and control over insects, which would synergize well with his shrinking ability.

Though Pym is fiercely defensive of his Pym particle tech, various other inventions and innovations of his, combined with Janet’s business sense, have allowed him to become quite wealthy. He is unused to this wealth, however, and tends to live below his means, funneling the extra money into his research and invention.
