    One thought on “Marvel Masterworks: Ant-Man/Giant-Man, Vol. 1”

    1. Well this was verymah. I'm gunna go with the term 'dated', since what's present here (casual sexism and racism) was apparent in a lot or Marvel comics from the early 60s. And I know 'people didn't know much better at the time/period' isn't a good excuse for it, but people didn't know much better at the time.Also, Janet decides she's deeply in love with Hank after literally a page, and then spends most of her time pinning after him and being mostly ignored.Also, some of the villains are so terrib [...]

    2. Doctor Henry Pym creates a shrinking serum and quickly gets into trouble as he's dragged into an ant hill, finally befriending an ant and making it back to his antidote serum. In his next appearance eight issues later, Pym re-creates his serums and perfects communications with ants, becoming the costumed hero Ant-Man. Janet Van Dyne is introduced in issue 44 as the daughter of a doctor who died due to an alien attack, and is quickly given Pym's shrinking mechanism along with subcutaneous wings, [...]

    3. Story: 7/10"Ant-man is a creative and stunning Marvel character. Even though personally Giant-Man is a little less interesting, this volume is a classic!"

    4. In Stan Lee’s kingdom of Marvel superheroes, the Fantastic Four are chose defenders of the realm and Spider-Man is the dominion’s crown prince. Ant-Man / Giant-Man is the tinkerer commoner whose adventures are not the tales of royal legend. Ant-man is a capable hero created by capable writer. But that is as far as praise can go. Stan Lee created the stories and his brother Larry wrote the scripts. The scripts are the weakest part of the whole creation. Kirby and Lee are legendary talents. Ho [...]

    5. I went into this book knowing that these early Marvel comics were written for a different time and are very dated. For example, Ant-Man's original method of transportation was ridiculous. He would shrink to ant size, then shoot himself out of a tiny cannon. While flying across the city, he would telepathically let his ants know where he was going to land. The ants would all gather in a giant pile at this location and their bodies would cushion his fall. Even though these stories were very goofy, [...]

    6. Larry Lieber's scripts are less impressive than Stan Lee's on both Iron Man and Thor. Ernie Hart, alias H.E. Huntley, is a new name to me, and he did the best scripting in the volume. Wasp, created in his first issue, was almost like a female Batman in her desire to fight crime and avenge the death of her father. It was easy to understand why this version of the Wasp would have coined a team name like "The Avengers," something I never understood until reading this material. When the Giant-Man st [...]

    7. Finalmente è stato pubblicato in Italia dalla Panini anche questo masterworks, uno dei pochi che mi interessi davvero. Le storie risentono dell'atmosfera degli anni 50 e 60, e la cosa strana di questo eroe, il mio preferito, per inciso, è che Lee non ne ha mai colto le immense potenzialità e lo ha trattato come un super eroe DC dell'epoca. Dov'è il "superproblema" dell'eroe, quel quid che ha fatto la differenza coi Fantastici Quattro, l'Uomo Ragno, Iron-Man, Hulk.E sì che di questo uomo, ge [...]

    8. Overall, better than I was expecting. The handful of Lee/Kirby stories are great fun, but the Lieber/Heck team is very strong, too. Ant-Man is a completely ridiculous concept, but some of the tales are really great, issues 42 and 49 in particular. And it's fun watching Ant-Man fight an evil jazz trumpeter.

    9. What started off as a one time story only a few pages long soon became a popular Avengers character as Hank Pym became the Ant Man! Featuring some of the most dreadful villains in Marvel comics, it's amazing that this journey of Hank Pym's from Ant Man to Giant Man is so much fun!

    10. Early Hank Pym is not my favourite Marvel character in the slightest. Over time, Wasp becomes quite likeable, though.
