@phatfarmer If you think these first few are bad, boy you're in for a surprise later. So far they've all be decent, except the last two stories have had horrible endings. He stole the gems and replaced them with dust? That's just stupid.
Relative to the other Ant-Man stories, I'd say this one is pretty good.
The Scooby-Doo style ending tried my patience and I think I'm starting to grow horrified with the implications of a super-hero having a slave army.
After reading the ending and being told that the "disintegration gun" did not really disintegrate, I went back and looked at the earlier frames where it was used. The cases were partially disintegrated. Did the Protector break them apart and steal the pieces as well, all before the smoke cleared?
Well, finally Ant-Man does some real crimefighting. In some ways, it's really a Scooby-Doo mystery, but at least the guy wasn't a communist this time. Ant-Man did show some quick-thinking, and his detective work was well-done. My son stuck with this story through to the end, although he was as distracted as a four-year old usually is. He still likes Ant-Man, although he isn't his absolute favorite anymore. We'll see how it goes in the future.
I never really liked Ant-Man when I was a kid reading Avengers comics, but I'm really growing an appreciation for him and his ability while reading The List. I've become a bit of an Ant-Man fan, and I'm getting excited for the Ant Man movie Disney-Marvel is working on.
