    I was just rewatching those on Netflix and I liked the way they handled Hank and really like how they handled jan. She was obviously younger then the current 616 Jan but smart, sassy and fun is the way to go with the Wasp. I liked the handling of Hank in the Mighty Avengers when Slott turned him into the Wasp. I hated the name change but he led the team well.

I didn't like the name change either but when I stopped and thought about it I was being sexist.

Female characters inherit the mantle of male superheroes all the time. It was rather novel that a man used a woman's moniker. I wouldn't have liked for Hank to take a name that was gender specific like Ms. Marvel but Wasp worked.

Reverend Meteor (ooh he really should have went with Black Widower)
