If you watched Marvel’s Ant Man movie you got a glimpse of the Wasp. That Wasp is not the incarnation that will appear in the comic book Unstoppable Wasp. The comic book will be using Nadia Pym.
Nadia is the daughter of Hank Pym and his first wife, Maria Trovaya. Maria was kidnapped during her honeymoon and killed by foreign agents. Nadia was raised in the Red Room in Russia. It was there she was trained to become a Red Room agent. When Nadia started to read she showed great aptitude for science. Her handlers informed her of her famous heritage.
Learning of her parentage only increased Nadia’s drive to escape the Red Room. She was eventually able to obtain a black market Pym Particle sample. She studied enough to master its size-changing properties and used it to escape the facility.
Nadia has genius level intelligence. She has a particular aptitude for science. She was trained in martial arts at the Red Room. Nadia is very adept in multiple forms of hand-to-hand combat. At one point she received combat training from the Winter Soldier.
Nadia created her own Wasp suit using pieces of old Ant-Man suits and materials laying around Hank Pym’s lab. To allow her to fly she installed a pair of Bio-Synthetic Wings on the suit’s back.
The Unstoppable Wasp is scheduled to hit shelves in early January.
