Character Details

-Pym and Van Dyne helped found the Avengers.
-Pym created the identity of Giant-Man.
-Finding it a strain on his body to support his weight as Giant-Man, he retired for a short time.
-Discovering he could will himself to change size, Pym returned to crime fighting. The Pym particles had permanently bonded to his body.
-However, strain caused limits on this power and he was stuck only changing to giant size for a short time and created yet another identity: Goliath.
-Pym continued experimenting with robotics and created Ultron, who escaped and returned later many, many, many times.
-A laboratory experiment exploded and made his insecurities worse. He began to exhibit a new personality to deal with his weaknesses and "killed" his old self.
-"Pym" secretly masqueraded as a confident man called Yellowjacket to win Janet over, being that he couldn't propose marriage as the loser Hank Pym.

-Growing depressed with his great failures in life, Pym began to verbally abuse Janet and the people around him.
-Pym and the Avengers stopped a villain's rampage, but Pym lashed out and blasted the villain in the back after she surrendered.
-He was suspended from further action until the Avengers could figure what to do to punish him.
-Pym developed another robot to attack the Avengers so that Pym could step in and exploit its weakpoint to look like a hero.
-When Janet objected to this plan, Pym whapped her. She showed her black eye to the Avengers.
-Pym summoned his robot as planned, but was captured before he could heroically disable it. The Wasp stopped it, in the ultimate insult, and ratted out Pym.
