FIRST LOOK: Marvel set to release Ant-Man #1

October 15th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Ant-man is back in a new standalone title! Weird, huh?

This January, the Marvel Universe’s smallest super hero is ready for the big time in ANT-MAN #1, the new ongoing series launching as part of Avengers NOW! Announced this weekend at NYCC, critically acclaimed creators Nick Spencer (Superior Foes of Spider-Man, Avengers World) and Ramon Rosanas (Night of the Living Deadpool) take Scott Lang to new heights!

Scott Lang has never been the world’s best super hero. Heck, most people don’t even think he’s been the best Ant-Man – and the last guy created Ultron and joined the Masters of Evil, so that’s really saying something. But all that’s about to change when the Superior Iron Man calls up Scott with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

“For Scott, being Ant-Man is kind of his one big thing,” says writer Nick Spencer, in an interview with “No matter how much trouble it’s caused him, or how much it’s cost him, it’s still the thing that plucked him out of criminal obscurity and gave him a chance to be something. And when we open, he’s trying to spin it into something new. He sees an opportunity.”

This is Scott Lang’s chance to turn it all around and be the hero he’s always wanted to be. Sure he’s been to prison! Sure he’s been through a messy divorce! Sure he’s been, um…dead. But this time it’s going to be different. New city. New outlook. New Scott. This time, nothing is going to stop the astonishing Ant-Man! And he’s coming to comic shops and digital devices this January for the all-new ANT-MAN #1!

On Sale in January!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
