Janet Van Dyne is the daughter of wealthy industrialist Vernon Van Dyne who was killed by an alien life form. Janet extracted her revenge on this alien with the help of Dr. Henry (Hank) Pym and his “Pym Particles”. She subjected herself to a series of tests which gave her the ability to shrink to the size of a wasp. In her wasp-like state she can fly and fire blasts of energy which she calls “Wasp’s stings”. She originally coined the name Avengers when the Super Hero team was first formed. She went on to become the leader of the Avengers, where she was married to her teammate Hank Pym for a time. Her powers, temperance and financial assets all make her valued member of the Avengers team.
