The Hero With A Thousand Faces

Hank Pym is a mental case. With all his shrinking and growing, the poor Doc doesn’t know if he’s coming or going. I suppose he can be excused for getting confused when his secret supersuit closet contains duds for Ant Man, Giant-Man, Yellowjacket, and Goliath!

But if Doctor Pym himself can’t remember why he changed his name from Giant-Man to Goliath, how are we poor fans supposed to keep up?

Hank Pym Yellowjacket

When even a notorious continuity hound like author Roy Thomas throws in the towel trying to keep track of your revolving identities, it’s time to pick a mask and stick with it! (And don’t get me started on all the other versions of Ant Man, Yellowjacket, and Goliath that have come along since this panel was printed all the way back in 1969!)
