Marvel teases the return of Giant-Man in Avengers Academy

by  in Comic News Comment

Marvel has released two covers for December’s Avengers Academy #7 that tease the return of Giant-Man, which I presume means that Henry Pym, the man of a half-dozen identities, is giving up his current moniker — the Wasp, a slightly creepy tribute to his dead wife — in favor of his more classic costumed persona.

Pym, who debuted as Ant-Man in September 1962’s Tales to Astonish #35, first adopted the Giant-Man identity more than a year later, in Tales to Astonish #49. Over the decades, he has appeared most frequently as Ant-Man and Yellowjacket, and last returned to the Giant-Man guise in (I think) February 1998’s The Avengers (Vol. 3) #1.

See both covers, by Ed McGuinness and Mike McKone, after the break.
