--Janet Van Dyne (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Hank Pym was a hero. In every sense of the word. A complicated man. Cursed by many Demons. Hank was a dreamer. The kind this world tramples. He wanted to make the world better. To give to everyone something he had never been able to accept himself. During our marriage, during his bouts of depression, he'd tell me that all he ever wanted to do was to stop feeling. To move through life without every aspect of it causing him so much pain. I believe that more than anything else, led to the creation of Ultron. He created a life that knew neither pain or suffering. A being that could experience the wonders of creation while avoiding the pitfalls of human emotion. But he put too much of himself into the machine. The rage of Ultron was never Hank's intention, but it was unavoidable. It was always there in the background, tormenting him. So of course it seeped into his son. Ultron was at once an amazing achievement and the greatest possible mistake. And knowing what he'd unleashed... Hank was never free of guilt. But he never stopped dreaming. Never stopped trying. And I think that just goes to show what a great man Hank Pym was. If the rage of Ultron, if such self-loathing and vile hatred existed within my ex-husband... The fact that he was able to dedicate his life to the service of other people is remarkable. Hank Pym was an astonishing man. And if there's some part of him, still out there, somewhere, listening. I hope one day he'll let himself see that. Quote2.png
--Janet Van Dyne (Earth-616)
Quote1.png You're not leaving here until that jacket is in a museum where it belongs. Quote2.png
--Janet Van Dyne (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I still have Hank's living will, Steve. In bold letters it says "Do not resuscitate." In the event of a tragedy -- he didn't want to be a half-corpse hooked up to a machine -- but look at him now! Look at him, Steve! Ultron murdered Hank, and now he's wearing his face! Quote2.png
--Janet Van Dyne (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Wherever you are, Hank... I'm going to get you for this. Here goes Janet Van Dyne, the feelings Avenger. Quote2.png

That is not logical after I came to kill you.

Before Hawkeye was an Avenger, he was a criminal. Before I came here I was nothing but an heiress. The Avengers are about giving you a chance to start over. You just have to decide what you want that start to be. ... You make your own choices. Create your own path. You come up with a vision of what you aspire to...and then you work to make it happen.

The loincloth-wearing warrior who refuses all technology, the portly martial artist who eats like a pair of horses, the talking gorilla, the little alien, the cursed wolf-man... my King believes these people are suitable for the dangerous tasks set before us. I am reserving judgement at this time.

And I thought, Pym makes sense, right? My parents' name. Why wouldn't I choose that? Except I never knew them and I don't know what they were like, and my last name should mean something to me. And I could only think of one last name that meant anything to me. And it's Van Dyne. But I wanted to ask you. Because it seems like it would be weird if I just got your last name and didn't ask or--
