- Basically, I shrink, and hang out with a bunch of ants.

When Dr. Hank Pym first discovered his size-reducing serum, he became trapped in an anthill and was pursued by the ants within. He escaped with the help of a friendly ant and restored himself to his normal size. The incident triggered an interest in ants in Pym, and he theorized that ants communicate through psionic/pheromonal/electrical waves transmitted through their antennae. After months of work, Pym succeeded in creating his first "cybernetic helmet", which would enable him to communicate with ants through transmitting and receiving psionic/pheromonal/electrical waves. Through this helmet, he managed to control a number of ants who would help him in his adventures as Ant-Man.
Foss was Korr's brother.
Korr was a winged ant who Ant-Man used to travel around the city on, and Korr gave up his life to protect him and the Wasp from a menacing garden snake. Henry Pym was visibly disturbed by Korr's passing and Korr's willingness to lay down his life for him. Later Pym used Korr's sentience as a base program for the Rover.

Formerly known simply as #247, the winged Carpenter ant (Camponotus pennsylvanicus) "Ant-Thony" was named by Scott Lang. Ant-Thony acted as the main mounted-stead for Lang during his training and the infiltration of the Cross Technological Enterprises Facility. Unfortunately, Ant-Thony was killed by a bullet from Darren Cross' gun.
A winged Carpenter ant. Although Wasp claims that Ant-Man named all the ants "Ant-Thony", he denies this by stating that he named all the girls "Ant-tonina". It is later renamed Ant-toine by Wasp. He was treated as a household pet, having mannerisms like that of a dog like playing fetch.
Hubble was one of Scott's ants before he accidentally crushed him. Since then, Scott has felt guilty and regret for what he has done.
