How would you rate Janet Van Dyne AKA The Wasp -as an Avenger- on a scale of 10?

What's a most memorable "Avengers scene" you can think of, ATM, that "she owned"?

How 'bout rating her as a mentor to Nadia so far?


I'm not up on the character recently but from her inception through the 90s I thought she was better developed than most Avengers without their own title. The Stern era certainly stands out as her pinnacle. I would say picking herself off the ground by beating Titania and the Absorbing Man when she was at her lowest point stands out to me.

Her leadership was already being questioned, then the Mansion and several Avengers were lost. Yet, she stood with an Ant-man (which brings up some drama) to defend her harshest critic (Hercules) from two opponents way out of her weight class. She found her grit there. Definitely her best moment.

I'd put here near the top of Avengers. Cap, Thor, Iron Man then Janet. Hawkeye and Vision just behind her.
