In 1980, Janet Van Dyne had a daughter named Hope with her husband Hank Pym. She later worked with Hank to produce a suit that used Pym Particles to decrease the size of the wearer, much like his Ant-Man's Suit could do for him. When she requested to accompany him on his missions he agreed and for some time they became a duo.

This arrangement came to an unfortunate end on a mission in 1987 to defuse a missile when neither of them could safely get inside. Janet switched off her regulator to shrink to subatomic size, thereby becoming small enough to slip between the molecules of the missile's casing. She successfully defused the warhead, but continued shrinking until for all intents and purposes she was gone.[1]

Little is known about her personality other than that her courage and sense of duty were so great that she opted to sacrifice herself to save many.



Equipment

Wasp's Suit: Wearing the suit, Janet could shrink down to microscopic size. In this state her atoms would draw closer together, reducing her mass while retaining her full strength. The suit was also equipped with wings that allowed the wearer to fly when compressed to the size of an insect.
