“I’m the boss, I’m the boss, I’m the boss. I’m the BOSS!”
Scott Edward Harris Lang is a former professional criminal who was convinced by Hank Pym to take on the mantle of the Ant-Man. He fought against Pym’s former protégé, Darren Cross, who had gone insane while trying to recreate thePym Particles, leading to Lang defending his friends, family and the world as the Ant-Man.
When the Avengers separated into two separate factions over the Sokovia Accords, he was recruited to Captain America’s side by Hawkeye. Though given a chance to back out as the faction would be working outside of the law, Lang scoffed at the warning; being a wanted man was not exactly a new experience. He was subsequently arrested following the Clash of the Avengers before being freed from the Raft by Captain America.
Scott Lang had earned a Master’s Degree in electrical engineering. With his skills he would often steal from criminals and give back to those they had stolen from.
Lang married a woman named Maggie sometime before 2008. Maggie was very supportive of Lang, but disliked his robberies, albeit from criminals. The couple later had a daughter they named Cassandra “Cassie” Lang. Lang promised his wife that he would stop stealing after Cassie’s birth.
