ETERNITY DUBS HANK PYM “EARTH’S SCIENTIST SUPREME”1
In Mighty Avengers (2009) #30, Hank Pym discovers Overspace. Previously, Mister Fantastic discovered the dimension. Now, Hank uses the Pym Particles. In an instant, he increases his size past the Macroverse. Then, he reaches a boundless space beyond space and time. There, the cosmic entity called Eternity greets him. After a brief scuffle, Eternity has a talk with Hank. Indeed, Eternity thanks Hank for curing him of his astral cancer.
But Hank questions why Eternity did not call Earth’s Sorcerer Supreme. Importantly, Eternity names Hank, “Earth’s Scientist Supreme.”1 Indeed, among Earth’s super geniuses, Hank Pym is the Mage. In fact, Eternity acknowledges Mister Fantastic as the Explorer is smarter. And Tony Stark as the Engineer uses science to shape the world. But Ant-Man does the impossible, taking science to the point of magic. Now, Hank is his champion to whom he entrusts the future.
HANK PYM’S INVENTIONS AND DISCOVERIES
Perhaps, Ant-Man’s most well-known invention. Originally, Hank Pym discovered the Pym Particles. Early on, he synthesized a serum that shrinks matter in mass and size. First, he tested it on a chair which shrank. Then, he tested it on himself which shrank him to ant-size. Eventually, he was able to use the Pym Particles to increase his mass and size. Importantly, the Pym Particles allowed the user to bypass the Square-Cube law of physics.
Definitely, Hank Pym’s failure. Once a promising scientist, Hank’s inventions started to fail. When he invented Ultron, it was a breakthrough of Artificial Intelligence. However, Ultron grew to sentience, hypnotized Hank and made him forget. Soon, Ultron evolved and improved his design. Later, he would form the Masters of Evil and combat the Avengers. Also, Ultron would create Vision. Visit our Avengers: Rage of Ultron review and learn about Vision vs Ultron.

Indeed, you may have seen in the Ant-Man movie, his trademark invention, the Cybernetic Helmet. With it, the superhero telepathically controls hordes of ants and even flying insects. Really, one of his most ingenious inventions proving he is a man of magic.
MACROVERSE AND MICROVERSE
With the Pym Particles, Hank Pym can absorb subatomic particles from the Kosmos dimension. Effectively, he shunts extra-dimensional matter into the Prime Universe. Moreover, his enlarging and shrinking super powers allowed him to discover the Macroverse and the Microverse.

It was another glorious victory for the Mighty Avengers. Good triumphed over evil and Ultron was shot into space, never to be seen again. Or so they thought. Now, years later, the homicidal artificial intelligence — so long devoted to ending life on Earth — has found a new world to conquer…one with its own horrific legacy. When Titan, birthplace of Thanos, falls, Planet Ultron rises in its place! Thanos’ brother Starfox must seek the aid of his former allies — but the Avengers he finds are radically different from the ones he once knew. Among them is Ultron’s creator Giant-Man — and when Hank Pym confronts his now planet-sized “son,” the responsibilities of fatherhood have never loomed so large.
To begin, “Avengers: Rage Of Ultron” is an important Avengers story. Amazingly, it expands on the relationship between the Avengers and their nemesis: Ultron.
Importantly, Rick Remender’s writing shines. Particularly, the writer crafts one of the best Avengers sci-fi stories. Moreover, the graphic novel builds upon the story arc involving Hank Pym and Ultron, with great dramatic tension.
To sum, this is a one-shot you do not want to miss. Indeed, share this graphic novel to fans of the Avengers and at watch parties. Definitely, it is worth its price and will leave you wanting for more Ultron! And Vision!

One positive customer review said: “As I mentioned earlier, this is the best Avengers story I’ve read since Busiek’s run came to an end. The prose and the philosophically-charged issues make this very high brow reading that’s exciting, thought-provoking, and worth rereading.
Definitely a story you’ll be picking up five years down the road for another look. And there’s even a very explanatory introduction from the previously–mentioned Kurt Busiek himself. This purchase is worth every friggin’ penny. You won’t be sorry.”
The reviews were overall very positive with 7 negative ratings. A problem cited by a negative review was the price per page count: “25 dollars for a 112 page book is absolute crap. Marvel needs to update their quantity because this is the only case where quantity is equal to quality. Thank god for websites like amazon so you dont have to buy it uber priced. Almost as bad as the art of deadpool trade..”
