The Wrong Side: Hank Pym vs. Wasp

In this feature, I examine comic book fights that were particularly notable in the wrong side winning (or at least that the fight wasn’t won the “right” way). This really isn’t a big deal, of course, as it doesn’t really matter if the “wrong” person won a fight. But it’s fun to talk about!

If you want to suggest a fight for future inclusion in this feature, drop me a line at bcronin@comicbookresources.com. Don’t suggest a fight in the comments!

This week, in honor of the Ant-Man film, I’m doing two Wrong Side editions this weekend. One today and one tomorrow. Today, we look at the example of Hank Pym defeating Wasp in West Coast Avengers Annual #2…

As always, on the first page we establish power levels and on the second page we look at the fight.

And also as always, how did they do against Spider-Man?

The Wasp and Ant-Man really haven’t fought Spider-Man all that often. One time they each did so, though, in a way, was in Avengers #11 (by Stan Lee, Don Heck and Chic Stone), where they both fought a robot designed to look like Spider-Man and presumably had the same powers as Spidey, so it is sort of comparable to them fighting the real Spidey. Fake Spidey kicks their butt…

Interestingly enough, the key story for the purpose of this edition of the Wrong Side is ANOTHER Spider-Man story, one where he tems up with the Wasp. Marvel Team-Up #60 (by Chris Claremont, John Byrne and Dave Hunt) introduced new powers for the Wasp. She could fly faster, her bio-electric stings were stronger and, most importantly, she now had a sort of super-strength while in shrunken form…

Okay, that’s enough set-up – on to the fight!
