10. Pilai the Kosmonian
Created by Stan Lee and H.E. Huntley
First appearance: "Tales to Astonish" #44 (1963)
The most "Doctor Who"-esque of any of Ant-Man's rogues, Pilai the Kosmonian may look like a corpulent baby in the midst of a reaction to eating bad shell fish, but he was the first villain the Wasp ever faced and is also a monstrous threat that Wright could absolutely nail. In fact, it was Pilai that murdered Wasp's father, compelling her to undergo the procedure that would allow her to shrink and grow wings. Assuming the Wasp is in the film, tying her origin to Pilai would be historically appropriate. As fans who watched "The World's End," fans know that Wright could pull off a tongue-in-cheek alien invasion pastiche with the best of them. If Groot can work in "Guardians of the Galaxy," why not Pilai, the blob responsible for Janet Van Dyne's heroic beginnings?
