Watch: The 25 greatest Wasp costumes from Marvel Comics

Contributed by

While she was a founding member of the Avengers in the pages of Marvel Comics, Janet Van Dyne, aka The Wasp, has yet to appear on the big screen in a meaningful way in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Luckily, next summer we'll get not one but two versions of the Wasp in the appropriately titled Ant-Man and the Wasp.

There we'll see Janet, played by Michelle Pfeiffer, as the original Wasp, who has been lost in the Microverse for decades. We'll also see Evangeline Lilly suit up as Hope Van Dyne, in her own unique Wasp suit. If the poster, the teaser at the end of Ant-Man, and the first look we've seen of Lilly's costume are any indication, we may even see more than one design to her suit throughout the film.

That's appropriate, as The Wasp has worn more than 50 variations of her costume over the years. The conceit for the running gag of her costume constantly changing is that Van Dyne is a fashion designer and thus keeps trying out new looks, never truly settling on one.

So, what looks do we hope to see in the film? We combed through back issue upon back issue for every Wasp costume change we could find, and put together our top 25 (including a couple of wild-card weirdos) in the video below. Check it out, and tell us in the comments which one you're hoping to see.
