Hank Pym was the original character named Giant-Man. He used that super hero identity after joining the Avengers with Wasp, Iron Man, Thor and the Hulk. He has also used other aliases like Ant-Man, Goliath, Yellowjacket, and Wasp.

As Goliath, Hank Pym led the Avengers after Captain America left the team. He married his girlfriend Wasp and also created the artificial intelligence better known as Ultron.

As Giant-Man, Pym fought villains like the Human Top and Egghead, and many years after, joined the Secret Avengers, the Avengers A.I. and the Avengers Academy. He also helped Wasp escape the Microverse after the “Avengers vs X-Men” conflict. Giant-Man also helped Matt Murdock and his friend Foggy Nelson on many occasions, and fought his enemy Ultron during the Rage of Ultron event.

After seemingly dying during the final battle, Pym surprised everyone when he returned as an amalgamation of flesh and Ultron circuitry and encountered the Uncanny Avengers, later joining the team in his new cybernetic form as Ultron.

Scott Lang (portrayed by Paul Rudd) serves as the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s equivalent of Giant-Man; with various interviews with directors Anthony and Joe Russo, Marvel Studios’s head Kevin Feige, and Ant-Man director Peyton Reed confirming this.

Nelson Alexander Ross is a comic book writer and artist known primarily for his painted interiors, covers, and design work. He first became known with the 1994 miniseries Marvels, on which he collaborated with writer Kurt Busiek for Marvel Comics. He has since done a variety of projects for both Marvel and DC Comics, such as the 1996 miniseries Kingdom Come, which Ross co-wrote. Since then he has done covers and character designs for Busiek’s series Astro City, and various projects for Dynamite Entertainment. His feature film work includes concept and narrative art for Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2, and DVD packaging art for the M. Night Shyamalan film Unbreakable. He has done covers for TV Guide, promotional artwork for the Academy Awards, posters and packaging design for video games, and his renditions of superheroes have been merchandised as action figures.

Ross’s style, which usually employs a combination of gouache and wash, has been said to exhibit “a Norman-Rockwell-meets-George-PĂ©rez vibe”, and has been praised for its realistic, human depictions of classic comic book characters. His rendering style, his attention to detail, and the perceived tendency of his characters to be depicted staring off into the distance in cover images has been satirized in Mad magazine.
