The Ant-Man movie is less than a month away, so this 5 W's is of both Hank Pym and Scott Lang. Let's suit up and get started!

Who is Hank Pym?

Dr. Hank Pym is an American biochemist with extensive knowledge in various scientific fields. Pym discovered a rare group of subatomic particles, which have become known as the "Pym Particles." Pym was able, through the application of magnetic fields, to entrap the particles within two separate serums. One serum would reduce the size of persons and objects, and the other would restore them to their normal size. Pym tested the reducing serum on himself and discovered it was more powerful than he had expected: it reduced him to the size of an insect.

Who is Scott Lang?

Scott Lang was an electronics expert who could not support his family doing repair work, so he turned his talents to burglary. Apprehended, he served his prison sentence and was paroled for good behavior. During his time in prison, however, his wife divorced him. Lang had furthered his studies of electronics while in prison and was soon hired by Stark International to work in its design department. He then broke into the home of Dr. Henry Pym and stole the Ant-Man Suit.

What powers/abilities does Ant-Man have?

Ant-Man gets his abilities from his helmet, suit and Pym Particles.

Pym Particles: Ant-Man is able to reduce himself to the size of an ant, approximately one-half inch in height. He is able to contain the particles in magnetic-field "canisters" (the shape of the magnetic lines of force were made visible by the confined particles, whose concentration caused them to behave like a gas).
