Scott Lang – Ant-Trap – MK Stangeland Jr.

(This script takes place in the MCU, following the movie.

So SPOILERS if you haven’t seen ANT-MAN yet.

But really, what are you waiting for?)

(6 Panels)

Panel 1: HANK PYM is talking on the phone.

SCOTT LANG: (Phone) Hey, Hank. You’re an expert on ants, right?

HANK PYM (1): Yes, Scott.

HANK PYM (2): Yes I am.

Panel 2: Closeup on SCOTT LANG, on the other end of the phone. He’s looking at something off-screen.

SCOTT LANG (1): Great.

SCOTT LANG (2): I need your help with an ant thing.

Panel 3: HANK PYM, still on the phone. His face shows subtle signs of ‘why do I put up with this?’

HANK PYM: Just say it, Scott.

SCOTT LANG: (Phone) You remember Cassie’s pet ant? Antie?

Panel 4: Back to SCOTT LANG. The panel is further back now to show that he’s looking at ANTIE, the giant ANT that CASSIE LANG adopted at the end of the ANT-MAN movie. ANTIE is lying on the ground, not looking like they’re doing the greatest. CASSIE LANG is nearby, hugging her pet ant, and looking at SCOTT with the expectation that her dad is going to find a way to fix the problem.

SCOTT LANG: He’s not looking too hot, and we were hoping you could give him a look and see what’s wrong.

Panel 5: Beat panel. HANK PYM is on the phone, with a close-eyed ‘why me’ look.

Panel 6: Continuation of Panel 6.

HANK PYM (1): (Thought Balloon) I knew I should have had him shrink that thing back down.

HANK PYM (2): Sure, Scott.

HANK PYM (3): I’ll take a look.



  1. This is fun. A great character moment between the characters that's sweet. I haven't seen the movie, but I don't think this would ruin my experience.

  2. A cute, fun page that plays at the relationship with Hank and Scott. I'd be tempted to play Hank's impatience a little louder and I'm not sure that the thought balloon is completely necessary - feels a little overexplainy to me - but it's mighty sweet nonetheless.
