Story: Known as one of smallest superhero’s in the comic book world, Ant-man is the hero that uses his incredible invention of a suit that allows him to shrink into any miniature size and reach heights of becoming a giant.
Creating: After Ant-man 2015 hit the big screens in the cinema, I wanted to work on my very own project of how I was going to do a photograph of witnessing Ant-Man running through my very own garden. After thinking how I was going to make Ant man appear tiny as he ran through the tall grass, I wanted to capture this moment as if I was an entomologist which is a person that studies all insets and that I’ve just witnessed a man sized ant running around and make a new discovery and my camera just managed to capture him. With the giant shoe behind Ant-man (my own shoe), this was something that made me think on whenever I’m walking in my garden how many insets could I be steeping on without knowing and to have Ant-man running for his life and leave the viewer thinking will Ant-man make it to safety.
Facts: First introduced in the comics of ‘Tales to Astonish 35’ in 1962, Ant-man was first known as a scientist called Henry Hank Pym who had discovered a serum of making objects shrink into little objects. With his discover of shrinking objects and then making a serum for returning them back to normal sizes which he named his discovery Pym Particles, Hank then decided to try and use his experiment on himself and made a mistake. By shirking into a incredible size Hank had forgotten he had left his resize serum next to a window ledge which would lead to him an army of ants. Surrounded by ants, Hank had to defend himself against a pack of hungry ants which one would later defend him and help. Using the ant that defended Hank, Hank then used the ant to getting him back to the window ledge finding the serum to resize himself back to his normal size. Now thinking of the dangers and discovery of what his serum could cause, Hank then thought about how the ant that saved him become his inspiration of becoming Ant-Man.
. By studying into ants for months and collecting enough research on them, Hank then wanted to learn how to communicate with them. With this new discovery of communicating with the ants, Hank was using an enough psionic, pheromonal and electric waves that he could now talk to the ants by wearing a cybernetic helmet and making a suit that could protect him from insect bites and stings that years later he would become one of the earths mightiest hero’s and team member of the Avengers.
. As Ant-man was a super hero that had the ability to shrink, Hank then start thinking on how he was able to use his Pym Particles to make himself a giant and increase his strength in large form. This then would lead Ant-man to becoming known to as Giant man and would make his first ever appearance in 1963 Tales to Astonish issue 49.
