Over at Edgar Wright's official blog, the director has posted an image from the animated series Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Its from the fifth episode ("To Steal An Ant-Man") of season two, which is also the first appearance of Scott Lang as the diminutive hero.


Just a few hours ago, Edgar Wright posted the image above on his official blog with the caption, "Homework." The image is from the 2nd season of Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, episode five titled: "To Steal an Ant-Man." It's based on the comic book, Marvel Premiere #47, which was also titled: "To Steal an Ant-Man."

What's so special about this episode? Well, it's the first appearance of Scott Lang as Ant-Man. Also, the first appearance of Heroes for Hire Inc. - Luke Cage (Power Man) and Danny Rand (Iron Fist). The episode begins with Hank Pym discovering that his Ant-Man suit has been stolen, and has been used to rob banks. Hank doesn't want to get The Avengers involved and turns to Heroes for Hire Inc. for help.
The thief returns to his hotel room, but Luke, Danny and Hank track the suit's Pym particles using Hank's technology. The thief removes the helmet, and Hank realizes he knows this man: Scott Lang, a janitor at Grayburn College. Scott explains that he was an electrical engineer who fell into bank robbery to help his sick daughter Cassie, but he got caught and went to prison for three years. Unable to get work as an engineer on release, he ended up as a janitor and discovered Hank Pym was Ant-Man. His old partner, William Cross, wants the cut he lost when Scott went to prison, and kidnapped Cassie to ensure he gets it. Scott stole the suit to rob the money needed get Cassie back.

Scott and the others head to Cross’s hideout, where he has a gun trained on Cassie. After it becomes clear Cross can't be negotiated with, Hank throws an improved Pym particle disc at Cassie, allowing Scott to shrink down and move her to safety. Scott, Luke and Iron Fist fight Cross and his henchmen, and once they defeat the bad guys, Scott offers to turn himself in. The others talk him out of it, observing that he's pretty good at being a superhero, and Hank gives him the Ant-Man suit.
