"[It was] a little terrifying. I’ve always been a fan of the Wasp, the thing we had to be most careful about was making readers understand that this isn’t a dismissal of Janet Van Dyne or her legacy, and I think we’ve accomplished that in the way we’ve set up our story.

The teenage Tony Stark opened a temporary hole in the barrier, spending the last power in his life-preserving chestplate to do so. Some innocent people inside got out, and all the Avengers outside got in.

The Avengers went there. )

"We have a lot of supergeniuses in the Marvel universe, but very few of them are women. I really wanted to give the main Marvel universe a young woman who is tomorrow’s Tony Stark or Reed Richards—she has more of a biochemical bent. Tony’s an engineer, Reed is very technological, but [the Wasp] is a biochemist wizard." -- Mark Waid
