Marvel Comics First Appearances - First Appearance of Ant-Man

Updated on November 21, 2013

In light of Marvel Studios announcing that the long-awaited and long-talked about Ant-Man movie finally on it's way to becoming part of Marvel Movies roster of superhero films at the San Diego Comic Con this year , it's no surprise that the first appearance of Ant-Man in Marvel Comics is a hot issue that many comic collectors and investors are actively seeking.

This issue has always been a sought out key issue to obtain. Nevertheless, speculation that the Ant-Man film will tie into the Avengers 2 sequel or Henry Pym will make an appearance in the Avengers 2 and the original founding member will join the biggest comic book movie franchise in history is making this specific Marvel Comic first appearance even more hot!

Those searching for high grade copies are in for a hunt. Mid to low copies of this Marvel key issue comic book will be easier to obtain, but this won't mean that you're not in for a hunt or shelling out some bucks either way.

However, before we begin, there is confusion to the actual first appearance of Ant-Man. I aim to clear this up in this lens.

First Appearance of Henry Pym vs. Ant-Man!

The first Ant-Man, the character who created the technology to change his body from small to large to larger, was actually scientist Henry Pym. It's his character who the Marvel film will focus on. Thank, God, because he is actually an original member of the Avengers in the comics!

However, when it comes to Marvel Comics first appearances, there is an actual first appearance of Henry Pym and a first appearance of him in the Ant-Man in costume. Yes, there are two key comic book issues concerning the character of Henry Pym and Ant-Man. The actual first appearance of Ant-Man in Tales to Astonish #35 is the first we see Henry Pym in the famous costume.

Have no doubt that this issue will be one of the hottest comics to invest in right now. Demand for this key issue comic book will increase as the Ant-Man movie nears it's release in 2014, as well as the Avengers 2 sequel slated for 2015.
