Smaller than a penny, Marvel superheroes Ant-Man and The Wasp are mighty in their diminutive size thanks to the mastery of subatomic Pym Particles, and they can also change their size to mammoth proportions too. In the comics, both Ant-Man and The Wasp are original Avengers who are finally going to star in their own Marvel Cinematic Universe film on July 6, the direct sequel to Ant-Man, starring Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly. We couldn't have thought of a better time to celebrate some of their best stories in our original video.

Ant-Man and Wasp have had a long and tumultuous run together, and there have been three men to hold the mantle of Ant-Man. But we looked specifically at the best stories that featured both heroes together, with Hank Pym as Ant-Man and Janet Van Dyne as The Wasp. Now, that means we had to consider Pym's multiple aliases, including Goliath and Yellowjacket. And, yes, we had to acknowledge when their relationship began to sour.

Still, there are plenty of memorable stories (and some memorable outfits) to choose from. And whether our list helps you get excited for the film, or you use it to guide you to more stories featuring the size-shifting Avengers, we love to celebrate good comics.

Watch our video to see if you agree with what we consider to be the essential Ant-Man and Wasp stories. If you have others that you think should have made the list, please share them below in the comments section, along with why they stand out to you.
