From Marvel Comics and the creative team of Nick Spencer (writer) and Mark Brooks (artist), Ant-man #1 is a fun and nontraditional super hero story with a somewhat new spin on the life of Scott Lang, the thief turned hero who stole the Ant-Man costume from its original owner and founding member of the Avengers, Hank Pym.
The most important thing about Ant-man was not that he defeated a fierce new deadly villain or even helped save the world from a pending alien invasion, but rather that he is a very human and very flawed character whose most important job is being a good father!
Down and out on his luck, Scott Lang is portrayed in this new monthly series as somewhat of a simpleton who has a knack for the hero thing, but doesn’t really have his act together yet! No money, no prospects and an ex-wife who tries to take his little girl away from him, Ant-Man must choose between being the head of Stark security and being present in his little girl’s life.
The comic’s art is fun and dynamic with a new writing take on an old character that seems to find the right mix of character development, action and morality. This book is worth picking up and even warrants looking forward to the next issue true believers.
