Isn't this a copy from somewhere else? Like verbatim. I swear I read that a week or so ago on some other website. Since I've never been to that one before.

Was it a lot more (but unnecessarily) verbose and split over 2 pages? Because if so I would guess it was cracked.

We always get a dozen awful greenlights about whatever movie is about to come out. I fully expect to see "6 best Avengers cosplay costumes" and "14 worst Avenger secret identities" and "9 Worst AVENGERS AVENGERS AVENGERS AVENGERS".

Although I'll probably see the movie.

There is another list, and swordsmen was on that one too.

I'm going to guess these come out pretty regularly, but, I like Lore's take . . .

You are telling me you wouldn't voluntarily click a link with good Avengers cosplay costumes; considering it will probably be a majority Black Widow?

She was.

But it would depend on the source. I certainly wouldn't look at Cracked list of cosplay. But if I wanted to see hot Black Widow cosplay there's always GIS, which doesn't come with stupid "commentary".

That's what happens when a Super Hero has too many tools at his disposal and you can't write a credible threat to him anymore.

Although it is a little strange to see a hero who has "Mind Control" in his list of powers being Mind Controlled.

Fun fact: Wikipedia lists "M.D. from Harvard" under his powers as well.

Yo dawg. We heard you like mind control, so we put mind control in your mind control so that you can be mind controlled while you mind control.

Going from memory. Henry Pym created the shrinking gas that turns him into Ant Man. Later on, he passes that on to someone else who assumes the role, and he reverses the formula and recreates himself as Giant Man.

Hank Pym operated as both Ant-Man and Giant Man at different points, (Hes Giant Man at the moment) as his powers allowed him to both shrink and grow. I think he could only shrink at first but he learns to grow pretty early in his career as a superhero.

Of course a bunch of other people because giant man and ant man over the years too.

Clone Thor killed the non-Hank Pym Giant Man, IIRC in Civil War.

Never mind Goliath, Yellowjacket, "Hank Pym" and, well, Wasp. One kooky guy, even when you take out the time a Skrull has been posing as him.

So it's only natural that he's taking over educating some could-be-heroes/could-be-villains teenagers along with a female, bikini-wearing associate.

/What is it with Marvel and scantily-clad teachers?

Yeah, I checked that first. But without a filter for the search it would have taken a while to parse out what they were listed under.

Luckily Gergesa understands what it means to be a lazy Farker stuck at work and he took pity on my sorry ass. Because he rocks.

My bad... Thor clone killed Goliath (which was also a Pym alter ego at one point), not Giant Man.

www.dailyraider.com

Interestingly enough, Goliath stayed that size even after death. So I guess those Pym Particles are good for one thing... you'll never see a food shortage in the Marvel Universe.

Thanks for the ant/giant man answer. I didn't know there had been other people in that role - I thought it was always hank pym. I should have known. Anyway, I like it that he can get small and big. And that he always has the hot small flying chick.

Wasp died during Secret Invasion. Skrull Pym had given her a serum that would let her grow. Towards the end, it caused her to become a bomb or something and Thor had to exile her to another dimension.

/She was last seen in Hades playing games trying to return to life.

The whole shrinking/growing family is basically playing a game of musical chairs. Last time I've looked, the second Ant-Man is back from the dead again, but on the other hand, his daughter is gone now. Probably someone has to skip town so that the Wasp can get back. Maybe Hawkeye. Who once was Goliath, too. Who just got his dead (ex-)wife back.

/The Aristo..., erm, Excelsior!

Mockingbird wasn't exactly dead to begin with. She had just been replaced by a Skrull

I always kind of like Stingray. I always thought he had good potential. He doesn't suffer from doing sucky things so much as he's always been way underdeveloped and underused as a character. Give his costume/armor an update, give him a good writer, and I think Marvel could get some decent stories out of him.
