Character Corner: Scott Lang (Ant-Man) – The Accidental Avenger


In our first episode of The Character Corner, Kriss & Dpalm discuss the character of Scott Lang (Ant-Man).  We talk about how Scott's character has been a consistent presence in the Marvel Universe. His story is actually pretty easy to follow and when you pay attentiont ot he whole thing, its actually really good. We discuss how the center of Scott Lang's story is his relationship with his daughter Cassie and how it starts with his first appearance as Ant-Man in 1979 and ties directly into his current run in his solo Ant-Man book.

    Totally agree about DC. Why on earth don’t they have an equivalent to MARVEL UNLIMITED. Makes zero sense. I would LIKE to go back and read some of the great Batman story arc’s or some of the back issues of FLASH, AQUAMAN, and Green Lantern. Unfortunately, I’m not gonna spend a bunch of money on Trades.

    Meanwhile I have a Marvel Unlimited account and so I watch the DAREDEVIL NETFLIX show and I’m like hey I want to read some DAREDEVIL I have my pick, I want read some DR Strange in prep for the movie, no problem. It allows you to try out characters and become fans of stuff you never expected. Unfortunately, I can’t do that with DC. Basically I’d pay 75$ tomorrow for this, It seems like they are leaving money on the table.
