....in bringing Rita back is the fact that Pym is using the Yellowjacket identity right now, so they won't bother trying to bring Rita back. What they need to do is put Pym back in his Goliath identity, which could be a way to honor the fallen Bill Foster, thereby leaving the YJ identity where it belongs -- with Rita.
