10 female characters Joss Whedon could add to 'The Avengers 2'
Which of these super ladies will could join Iron Man, Hulk and Cap in the sequel?
Real Name: Janet Van Dyne
First Appearance: Tales to Astonish #44
Powers: Alter her physical size (usually shrinking), spawn wings to fly and fire bio electric stinger blasts.
Avengers Member: Yes
Why: The Wasp just can't get no respect. A founding member of The Avengers and at times a fan favorite, Janet Van Dyne found herself relegated to the sidelines during Bendis' Avengers run writing the comic book titles over the past decade. She's now back in Uncanny Avengers (whew), but there has been no hint of her appearing in the big screen Marvel Universe. Ant Man is even getting his own movie before her! Of course, Van Dyne though should be a Whedon favorite. She's a heroine who embraces her feminine side (she's a fashion designer when she isn't battling the likes of Ultron) and backs down to know one. Can we at least get a cameo? Maybe she gives Captain America's costume a long deserved redesign? Maybe she's the bridge to bring Ant Man into the picture in the third film? C'mon Joss - she's a former Avengers chairwoman for Pete's sake!
