Dwight Barrett was a prodigy child who passed most of his time at Josie's Bar,[2] where his uncle Turk Barrett watched over him while he played around with the Ant-Man helmet[3] he was given as a gift.[2]

After the Venom Symbiote-clad Madroxes killed his uncle for helping Hawkeye against them, Dwight used his Ant-Man helmet to rescue Hawkeye and escape with him to the Bishop Refuge, a hidden region of the Wastelands where Hawkeye thought they would be safe. Unbeknownst to them, however, was that a piece of the Venom Symbiote had stuck to the car they used to escape, allowing the creature to track them down.[4] The Venoms were ultimately defeated by Hawkeye and Kate Bishop while Dwight stayed at the Bishop Refuge with the orphans who lived there.[1]

Five years later,[5] Dwight claimed a bridge in Des Moines and started to charge a toll for its use. If whomever wanted to cross it didn't pay what he asked, he would use his Ant-Man helmet to command a million ants into killing them. Hawkeye and Logan were some of those who paid in order to cross the bridge.[6]


Genius Intelligence: Dwight was able to reverse-engineer an Ant-Man helmet when he was about eight years old.[4][2]


Ant-Man Helmet: Enables Dwight to control ants.[6]
