Revisiting some of the marvellous Gene Colan-era Avengers stories made me realise just how much I really do miss Janet Van-Dyne. Are the days of Roger Stern/Steve Englehart in the late 80s really the last time The Wasp received significant exposure in The Avengers...?
With differing Avengers books at any one time and No Janey Van Dyne Just what is it modern writers dislike about her? Any thoughs?
Jan is a great character, but her powers are small potatoes. So, maybe contemporary writers dislike having to write a character that shrinks, and fires stingers(even with the power upgrade to those blasts). It's too bad, because she's one the few fully developed female characters.
