But Pym discovering the particles with his name on them and then becoming Ant Man is a major part of Jan's history as a character, in both the Ults and 616.
And there's zero reason we couldn't meet unpowered Jan first and have Pym turn up later.
But how angry would you be if they quickly worked over her origin story in a few minutes and dropped her in the middle of the plot with no explanation?
What, like they did with Hawkeye? or Natasha? Sure, I'd rather she headlined her own movie, but hey, I'll take her added in.
There is already a check box for talented non powered special agent with two X's.
Sorry, two X's? You're basically saying that the Avengers already have an unpowered female agent, and they can only have one?
I feel the need to point out again that this isn't a race or sex issue.
Unless you come up with a reaaaaal good alternate explanation of the two X's comment, I'm sorry, it is absolutely a gender issue. You said we couldn't have a female special agent because we've already got a female special agent. You must have some serious cognitive dissonance going on if you think that's got nothing to do with gender.
Even the actual Avengers movie is giving us another female unpowered SHIELD agent in the form of Maria Hill. Thank fuck you weren't casting that. "But we've already got a girl! Another one would be redundant!"
