Marvel Teases Father and Daughter Shenanigans in New Ant-Man Comic

Get all your "size doesn't matter" jokes out of your system since Marvel has announced a new Ant-Man comic book coming out in February. This seems to be a pseudo-sequel to the previous Astonishing Ant-Man series from Nick Spencer since it will have Scott Lang teaming up with his daughter Cassie, who now has the superhero alias Stinger. Yeah, I miss Cassie's Young Avengers costume too but they could bring it back in the future.

The series will be written by Zeb Wells and drawn by Dylann Burnett. Wells is a veteran writer for Marvel, often balancing writing comics with his Robot Chicken duties, though he has made a number of memorable stories like the Shed arc of Amazing Spider-Man. Wells is the perfect writer for an Ant-Man series, though it's not yet known if this will be an ongoing comic or a mini-series.

Here's the summary of Ant-Man #1, which sounds like a typical Scott Lang story for better or worse (via Newsarama):

Ant-Man is back and doing better than ever! Er, at least according to him, but Stinger and the anthill he's living in say otherwise. Desperate to raise his daughter's opinion of him, Ant-Man takes a job from local beekeepers only to uncover a global conspiracy that could topple the world order! No time to call the Avengers, this sounds like a job for –ANT-MAN?! Join the explosive creative team of Zeb Wells (NOVA) and Dylan Burnett (X-FORCE, COSMIC GHOST RIDER) as they take Ant-Man to all-new heights in this epic adventure!

Personally, I'm a little disappointed over the fact that this Ant-Man story is gonna continue making Scott Lang a goof. Ever since Nick Spencer's run, people seem to forget that he's a genius who has defeated Doctor Doom and saved the world numerous times, just so they can make him more like his MCU counterpart. Still, if it's well-written and drawn good, we won't mind too much.

Ant-Man #1 comes out this February.
