* UnfinishedBusiness: [[ComicBook/TheIncredibleHercules Hercules]] and Amadeus Cho encounter Janet's soul in Erebus, stubbornly trying to win resurrection on one of the slot machines.
** This created a PlotHole when Bendis later established that Jan ''[[HesJustHiding had never really died in the first place]]''.

The Wasp is a Creator/MarvelComics superhero created by Creator/StanLee and Creator/JackKirby. Making her debut in ''Tales to Astonish #44'' (June, 1963), Janet van Dyne has been featured in more than four decades of Marvel comics history. One of the founding members of ComicBook/TheAvengers, the Wasp famously gave the team its name after the the heroes take down the villain Loki. Aside from a few solo adventures in ''Tales to Astonish'', Janet is the only original Avenger never to receive her own series. She made a HeroicSacrifice during ''ComicBook/SecretInvasion'', but to the surprise of nobody, returned from "the dead" after the events of ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen''. She then appeared as part of the ''ComicBook/UncannyAvengers'' during the ''ComicBook/MarvelNOW'' relaunch.

During the time that Janet was considered dead, her longtime love interest Hank Pym (aka "ComicBook/AntMan", "Giant-Man", "Yellowjacket", "Goliath") would take over the "Wasp" name, during which he would co-lead the limited series "Ant-Man & Wasp" with then-current Ant-Man Eric O'Grady. Tropes regarding him can be found over on the ''ComicBook/AntMan'' page.

A new Wasp has since appeared as part of the Comicbook/AllNewAllDifferentMarvel relaunch. Nadia (no last name given yet) idolizes Hank Pym and is a brilliant scientist herself, having reverse-engineered the [[SizeShifter size-changing]] Pym Particle. Stealing some of his unclaimed gear after he was presumed dead, she's working to prove herself his successor - never mind that she never actually ''met'' Pym, and the "Wasp" name is already in use by someone who ''has''.

Aside from a few solo adventures in ''Tales to Astonish'', Janet is the only original Avenger never to receive her own series. She made a HeroicSacrifice series.

When her father was killed by an alien attack, Janet turned to her colleague Hank Pym aka ComicBook/AntMan. Hank gave her access to the same [[SizeShifter size-changing]] Pym Particles that he used, plus genetic augmentation for insect wings that would allow her to fly once she shrank small enough. Over time the size-changing would become an innate power, plus she developed the ability to fire bio-electric "stings" from her hands.

The Wasp name was also briefly used by Hank himself
during ''ComicBook/SecretInvasion'', but to the surprise of nobody, returned from "the dead" after the events of ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen''. She then appeared as part of the ''ComicBook/UncannyAvengers'' during the ''ComicBook/MarvelNOW'' relaunch.

a time that when Janet was considered dead, her longtime love interest Hank Pym (aka "ComicBook/AntMan", "Giant-Man", "Yellowjacket", "Goliath") would take over the "Wasp" name, during which he would co-lead the limited series "Ant-Man & Wasp" with then-current Ant-Man Eric O'Grady. Tropes regarding him can be found over on the ''ComicBook/AntMan'' page.

A new Wasp has since appeared as part of the Comicbook/AllNewAllDifferentMarvel relaunch. Pym's first wife was a Russian political refugee, but she was murdered before he met Janet. However, unknown to Pym she had given birth to a daughter, Nadia, who was taken into the "Red Room" program that had produced the ComicBook/BlackWidow. Showing herself to have inherited Pym's aptitude for science, Nadia (no last name given yet) idolizes Hank escaped using Pym Particles acquired from the black market and is a brilliant scientist herself, having reverse-engineered the [[SizeShifter size-changing]] Pym Particle. Stealing sought out her father, only to find out he had supposedly died in battle. She then steals some of his unclaimed gear after he was presumed dead, she's and is working to prove herself his successor - never mind that she never actually ''met'' Pym, and the "Wasp" name is already in use by someone who ''has''.
